Forward to the Zero Emissions Future

Electric motorcycle racing history in San Jose this weekend

Yesterday a few electric motorcycles came to a gas bike race held over the weekend in San Jose, CA. There were two Zero S bikes, a conversion built by Richard Hatfield, and a totally home built bike made by Bob Schneeveiss. They were there as an exhibition event but they went on the same track as the gas bikes had gone. The event was a "flat track" race on a short oval.

Of special interest to me was Richard Hatfields bike. It's very powerful and is powered by an Agni motor. In the race it nearly lapped the field, pulling way out in front of the Zero motorcycles. However it also had some problems and the bike did not complete the race. See the writeup and pictures below.

Richard Hatfield's latest race bike is for short track racing
