Elec­tric tests for TT pair

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

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.
