MADMAX Team Rider Zef Eisenberg raced in to the record books 21-22 September 2019 setting four new motorcycle records at the Straightliners Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme World Speed Records event at Elvington, North Yorkshire on board the Nottingham University Isle of Man TT zero bike.
International multiple ACU Motorbike speed record holder and self-proclaimed ‘Speed Freak’ Zef Eisenberg achieved four FIM World records for an electric motorbike unfaired, with an ‘average kilometre’ speed of 185mph, and peak GPS speeds of 197mph. He victoriously secured the title for the fastest electric motorbike bike in the world without a fairing.
The four new ACU national category records include: the FIM Flying Kilometre speed of 185.103mph, with best one-way speed of 194.086mph, with GPS peak speeds of 197mph, the FIM Flying Quarter Mile, the FIM Standing Quarter, the FIM Standing Mile and ACU Flying Quarter Mile.
Afterwards, Zef said, “I can’t explain how happy and emotional this was. The Nottingham University Team of talented PhD students have built and engineered an incredible racing bike under the leadership of Dr Miquel Gimeno-Fabra – they should all be so proud.
“I hope these records will help to put electric bikes firmly on the map, as the speeds and technology certainly impressed many of the combustion powered motorbike competitors, especially as the bike was achieving the same top speeds as a Kawasaki H2 – considered the fastest and most powerful production motorbike you can buy.”
