Sarolea SP7 Electric Carbon Fiber Superbike
With the Isle of Man TT Zero race set to kick off in just a few short weeks, a familiar name surfaces from the abyss as Sarolea debuts their all new SP7 carbon fiber constructed, electric motorcycle.
It’s been nearly five decades since we’ve seen a 2-wheeler produced by the Belgian company, but that’s all about to change in 2014. Before the hiatus, the brand had been manufacturing gasoline-powered motorcycles since the mid 1800s, and now they’re looking to get with the times. The SP7 superbike sports retro-inspired aesthetics with modern day technology. The 180 horsepower electric motor helps this carbon fiber rocket sprint to 60 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds. Details on the battery pack are unknown at this time, and we’re not even sure if Sarolea has any plans to ever release this thing in a street-legal variant, but that doesn’t change the fact that we are excited to see this thing hit the track next month.
