New in 2014, the team’s Zero SR electric motorcycle has been modified for track racing.

Key changes to optimise performance include suspension work, modified RSV4 and CBR1000 fairings and seat, ventilated motor and ducted fan for improved air cooling. Additional tweaks have been done to the motor controller to achieve higher torque at high RPMs as well as higher gearing to raise the bikes top speed to 185kph.
