FIM accepts FFs in E-power Championship!
Charles Hennekam, technical co-ordinator and Motorcycle Homologations Officer for the FIM, confirms in an email that it "Is possible to enter FF designs" in the new FIM formula that replaces E-GP.
He goes on to note the "Daunting" challenge of incorporating E-power into race motorcycles without factory support, something that all entrants will have to deal with.
This is a major milestone in FF development. This is the first time the FIM have relaxed their detailed streamlining rules since 1956. There is now no technical bar to entering a full, race-spec. Electric FF in a formal world championship.
Motorcyclists are unlikely to take this on board - they've got enough to deal with, going electric. Going faster, more efficiently, in greater safety will take more imagination, but not more money.
