Warwick Moto unveiled Aurora its electric superbike that will make its debut on UK road races soon possibly in 2022 since all the TT events have been scrapped due to ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Warwick Moto is an enterprising, multi-disciplinary group of the University of Warwick, United Kingdom.
The team says that the finished bike produces about 200 horsepower, or 150kW, along with 400Nm (or 295 lb-ft.) of torque. The top speed rating of the bike has been recorded at 160mph (~257 kmph). It includes an oil-cooled 17kWh battery and a carbon fiber subframe that the team says is a ‘uniquely positioned radiator to maximize the cooling to the powertrain components.”
Warwick Moto’s Aurora electric superbike weighs 260 kilograms.
The team has brought more sponsor onboard including Michelin and UK motorsports supplier Demon Tweeks, but the team hopes to raise more funds through crowdfunding to finalize Aurora as a production model.
