Electric tests for TT pair
Martin and Mcguinness followed their Castle Combe outing with a trip to Japan to test the 2017 spec Mugen Shinden. The new model, which was unveiled last week, has been completely redesigned in the hope of smashing the 120mph lap
speed barrier for the first time on an electric bike.
The duo will travel to Mugen’s test track at Sodegaura Forest Raceway and test the bike for three days. The new Mugen is said to be lighter and more powerful. Mcguinness steered
earlier versions of the Shinden to 2014 and 2015 victories in the TT Zero race and Guy finished fourth in the event on a Victory in 2014.
