TT-winning electric bike to wow crowd at Visa London ePrix

The crowd at the FIA Formula E Championship season finale at Battersea Park will get to see the Isle of Man TT class-winning electric bike, Mugen Shinden Go, in all its glory.

Kiwi ace Bruce Anstey, fresh from winning his 11th race at the world’s most famous road race, will demonstrate the Team Mugen machine on both days of the Visa London ePrix, which takes place on July 2 and 3.

The bike, which averaged a sensational 118.416mph around the challenging 37-mile circuit on its way to victory this week, will also be on display in the eVillage in between the on-track runs, allowing fans to get up close to this technological marvel.

The demonstration runs will take place at 1.10pm on both Saturday July 2 and Sunday July 3.

Oli McCrudden, Event Manager of the Visa London ePrix, said: “We are really excited to have the opportunity to see the spectacular Shinden bikes and I would like to thank the team at Mugen for showing such desire to be with us in Battersea. Their achievements at the TT are astounding; like Formula E they are breaking ground in their market and driving EV technological development.”

Bruce Anstey said: “I have been working with the Mugen team for 3 years now and I am really pleased to have delivered my first win in the TT Zero class for them. Every year they produce a brand-new bike for me and John (McGuinness), and this year was the best yet. I am really looking forward to showing the bike to a wider audience around the streets of Battersea.”
