BOLT Electric Motorcycle


In 2012 the Battery Operated Land Transport team built Virginia Tech's first 100% electric racing motorcycle. That team competed in the all-electric TTXGP North American Series and finished as the fastest 75 class bike in the western hemisphere. For the coming year the team will build upon the foundation laid last year be competing in the unlimited GP class of the TTXGP in order to continue to push the boundaries of electric vehicle technology through racing.
