Are road bikes the electric dream?
Until this year, all TT Zero entrants had been racing prototypes, but MCN and Dorset bike dealer Motocorsa entered an Energica Ego into the event this year – and showed what could be a way forward for the event. MCN Senior Road Tester Adam ‘Chad’ Child clocked a quickest average speed of almost 81mph in practice on the machine, which had not been modified for racing in any way with the exception of the removal of headlights, mirrors and number plate. Chad finished sixth out of eight bikes in Friday’s race and was adamant the bike could go quicker with a few small changes.
