The Mooney VR46 Racing team chooses Elektra Bikes 'CityStar and Deliroad Spanish electric scooters and Monkey Bikes' Gorilla 125 for travel in the paddock and along the track during MotoGP Grand Prix in Europe.
Pablo Nieto, team manager in the premier class of Mooney VR46 Racing Team, Valentino Rossi's team, said: “We are very happy to be able to count on Monkey and Elektra Bikes in the paddocks in European races in this special year for us, having done the leap to the premier class. With this agreement, we also want to take another step towards sustainable mobility with an electric motorcycle brand that has given us great confidence right from the start ”.
Elektra Bikes models are the CityStar and the Deliroad. The CityStar is a high wheel scooter equivalent to a 125cc model (category L3e-A1). The battery allows a range of 85 km extendable up to 160 km. Recharging can take place directly on the scooter or the battery can be removed and recharged in the box in about 3 and a half hours. The 3 kW engine allows you to reach a maximum speed (obviously not in the MotoGP paddock) of 105 km / h. The engine maps are the classic Normal, Eco and Sport. The Deliroad has very similar performances to the CityStar but the range can be extended up to 220 km.
Monkey Bikes will supply a model with a traditional engine, the Gorilla 125; a vehicle with a very low weight (<100 kg) designed for agile urban transport.
