e-bike team hopes to set length-of-britain record

Volunteers from Imperial College London aim to set a world record by riding a 3D-printed electric motorcycle from Land’s End to John O’ Groats. It would be the first time that an electric motorcycle had completed the famous route.

The ZEPHiR e-bike is the world’s first water-cooled 3D printed motorcycle motor and superstructure (coated in carbon fibre) supporting the innovative textile fairing and seat and shod with Michelin tyres.

The ZEPHiR project was set up by volunteers from Imperial College’s Racing Green programme (well known for racing at the TT) and is a new start for the team, one where data collection and raising public awareness are combined with a once in a lifetime adventure.

Nathaniel Petre said: “This is going to be an exciting year for us. The world record attempt in August will be the culmination of many months of hard work.”
