The motorcycle the team is working on this year is an entirely new bike.

Some of the changes from the old motorcycle to the new one include a smaller motor, which leaves more space for batteries, a better battery pack, which will be more stable and allow for much quicker battery changes, a more streamlined shape and a different frame, Herrmann said.

“The design challenge for us was how to take a gasoline bike and a frame set up for that and make it competitive with electric,” Herrmann said.
