A Mavizen bike will appear at the 2010 TT Zero event, despite Isle of Man organisers setting up this rival event after shunning the TTXGP, founded by Azhar Hussain, owner of Mavizen.
The TT Zero was established by FIM and Isle of Man as a rival to the TTXGP series and it was originally reported that Hussain would think twice about selling Mavizen bikes to run in the competitor event.
Carbon fibre manufacturer 666 Road Racing has announced that it wants to use a Mavizen electric bike in the Isle of Man TT Zero race, making it the first to purchase a Mavizen bike for use other than in the TTXGP series.
The company makes the carbon tray that holds the electrical components of the Mavizen bike.
Riding for 666 will be Keith Amor who won two podium spots at the 2009 TT, and who recently split with the JMF/Millsport team, leaving him without a spot at this year’s race.
The Mavizen bike used will have a KTM chassis, Mavizen electric parts and 666 components.
