Guy gets Mu­gen ride for TT Zero

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Guy Martin will add the elec­tric TT to his Honda Su­per­bike and Se­nior com­mit­ments at this year’s Isle of Man TT rid­ing for Team Mu­gen.

The 35-year-old who is mak­ing a re­turn to the TT fol­low­ing a year out will line up along­side his of­fi­cial Honda Rac­ing team-mate John Mcguin­ness.

Martin is no stranger to the TT Zero hav­ing com­peted in the 2015 race on­board Vic­tory’s elec­tric bike. He fin­ished fourth be­hind the Mu­gen Hon­das of Mcguin­ness and Bruce An­stey and his Vic­tory team-mate Lee John­ston with a lap of 109.717mph.

Hav­ing won the race for the last three years, Mu­gen are aiming to not only con­tinue their dom­i­nance of the faste­volv­ing class, but are tar­get­ing the first-ever 120mph lap of the 37.73-mile cir­cuit and are set to re­veal a re­vised bike at the Tokyo show next month.

Mcguin­ness and Martin will get their first test of the bike in Ja­pan in April.
