Murata DC-DC convertors drives University of Nottingham electric superbike to 3rd place win in Isle of Man TT Zero race
The Isle of Man TT Zero race is a particularly gruelling challenge for electric bikes because the length of the race requires performance to be balanced with energy usage, high speed being sacrificed for range to ensure a finish. Despite this the Murata/UoN bike, ridden by Daley Mathison, achieved an average speed of a fraction under 100mph, finishing ahead of the race favourite John McGuinness on the works Mugen/Honda.
