If you follow me on twitter, then you probably know that I’m a big fan of the up and coming generation of electric race bikes. TTXGP started it off last year and this year, we have TT Zero as part of the Isle of Man TT. It all may still be new and not as prominent as the ‘old’ style racing, but the potential this new technology brings is huge and will only continue to grow.

One of the teams already on the island for TT Zero is SERT Racing from Sweden and I stopped by today to have a look at their machine, the Bumblebee. The eagle-eyed observer will notice that the rims have the words Stiggy Racing on them, and there’s a very good reason for that: this bee has a sting in its tail, being based on a Stiggy Racing superbike. Add experienced rider Chris Palmer to the mix and this already looks like a promising contender.
