Segway Sponsors MotoCzysz Racing Efforts for 2011

Looks like Segway - the maker of the electric two-wheeled mobility devices - has teamed up with another company that makes electric powered two wheeled transportation (the motorcycle variety) - MotoCzysz.

Segway Inc. will be the title sponsor for 2011 MotoCzysz race efforts, with the unified goal of elevating electric motorsports and personal transportation.

Segway recognized MotoCzysz as the frontrunner in electric motorsports with industry leading technology and is excited to be partnering with them as title sponsor for the 2011 race season. This combination results in a world class team of mechanical, electrical, and software engineers whose years of experience and knowledge will lead both companies to successes not only at the track but also with new vehicles in the marketplace.

In 2010, the MotoCzysz E1pc set the bar for electric motorcycle racing by winning the two most important international electric motorcycle races and setting records along the way. The all-new 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc will further advance electric vehicle technology and performance by increasing onboard energy, nearly doubling the horsepower while reducing the vehicle’s overall weight.

"Following last year’s TT, Jimi Heselden, the owner of Segway and I became very interested and motivated to be involved in the electric motorcycle racing world. MotoCzysz was our first choice to partner with, and I could not be happier or more excited to be involved for the 2011 season” said Wayne Mitchell, CEO of Segway Inc.

“We’re thrilled to have Segway as a sponsor for the 2011 race season. Segway is a recognized innovator, making them a perfect partner for MotoCzysz. As the CEO of Segway is an ex British motorcycle champion, and current world motorcycle land speed record holder, Wayne and I are kindred spirits, and look forward to a great 2011 racing season and future together” said Michael Czysz, MotoCzysz CEO & Founder.

Segway Inc. is the leader in personal electric transportation, developing products that transform the way you work, play and live. Since the introduction of its first consumer product, the Segway® Personal Transporter (PT), the company has established itself as a leader in the emerging small electric vehicle (SeV) marketplace. In addition to the iconic Segway PT, Segway offers a variety of products and services that continue to provide solutions for urban congestion and pollution while leveraging its in-house expertise in drive by wire, electric drive train, and Lithium-ion battery technologies. No matter the platform, Segway products allow you to experience and accomplish more with less.

Segway markets a full line of zero-emissions Segway PTs for sidewalk and cross-terrain use that deliver impressive energy efficiency – equivalent to 450 miles per gallon. The company’s line of Segway Robotic Mobility Platforms (RMPs) offers reliable, durable mobility solutions for robotic applications.

MotoCzysz is a design and engineering firm known for its innovation and creativity in applying technology to develop new products and solutions. It is working exclusively on D1g1tal Dr1vesTM electric drive systems, electric vehicle components, and electric vehicles. It is the inventor of the D1, the industry’s first fully integrated electric drive which allows automobile OEMs, fleet conversions and others to immensely speed up their electric vehicle design cycle. The MotoCzysz E1pc digital superbike won the two largest and most important electric races in 2010: Isle of Man TT zero, IOM and the e-Power Red Bull MotoGP, Laguna Seca.
