Everything is going swimmingly according to the Clerk of the Course who was on Manx Radio at lunchtime, no problems at all, 600 Marshalls being recruited here and away , training given on both sides of the water,  the D.O.I are on board, hot line open to them with frequent reports how the mountain road is being sorted.  A local rider is zipping around the course a couple of times a week assessing problems which are being fast tracked to the D.O.I. for attention.  It is great, it is happening, razz Le dazzle was on top form.   What a total load of bollocks.

Why is it bollocks , what’s not happening that is needed in your opinion?!

A lot has changed since an e bike last lapped the TT course.  I think you would be surprised.

An electric production road bike with slightly higher battery from today would have a crack at the existing lap record.

 

I'm not so sure really, the range drops dramatically when they get pushed hard, MotoE at the cutting edge hasn't seen an increase in range as yet?

Was he told by the same people who told him we're aiming for 500k visitors by 2032?

You should ride one.

Energica says the Eva Ribelle is good for 249 town miles, 112 miles on the motorway and 143 miles general mucking about. Fast charging to 80% full takes around 42 minutes and a slower Level 2 charger will give you 41.5 miles for every hour its plugged in.

We didn’t get to test the new battery’s impressive credentials during our short test at its world launch, but we did get to feel the force. Churning out 144bhp and a tarmac-ruffling 159ftlb of torque (just four shy of the new Triumph Rocket 3) acceleration is as savage as a top drawer super naked.

My memories are of the smell ofCastrol ,growl of theNortons and the high pitched Italian bikes .   I hope the races go ahead for the sake of the economy but how will the hotels and campsites go on if they have rolled over the bookings there will not be any money coming in but overheads will have to be paid.   Have Bushy’s got the Villa again ?   That seemed to be a success story.   I still think it is more a possibility rather than a probability but I hope I am wrong.

I don't think Energica are continuing with Moto E, and their specs kind of back up what Max was saying. 249 miles around town yet only 112 on the motorway, so going at 70mph gives you less than half the range. Going at race speeds?
