    The team consist of four students all in their final year of their Mechanical Engineering at D.Y Patil college of Engineering, Akurdi and representing Pune University.

    We have been working on this project for past two years, It all started with an idea of making a new all electric sports motorcycle. We are a petrol heads by nature and that’s has got the team together. The team started with an idea to make a sports motorcycle that can match and compete a petrol driven motorcycle and still make no compromises in the handling, range and speed.
    As mechanical engineers it took us a complete year to understand the basics of EV and to implement it to motorcycle frame and dynamics. But still limited resources, knowledge and experience the team could bring up a first prototype.

    The team entered TTXGP to compete and stand along with the bike and team whom we sought inspiration from. We as a team want to change the perception about Electric Motorcycles in India.
    Here we stand as proud Indian’s at the Isle of Man TT
