Mavizen is the technical arm of the TTXGP and the new FIM sanctioned race series that has sprung from it. It plans on offering a limited number of TTX02’s to potential EV racing privateers, which will give them a bike that they can develop without taking the huge financial risk of starting a high-level racing effort from scratch.
“The limitted production bike, the Mavizen TTX02, gives potential participants a chance to acquire a bike that they can develop themselves to make it competitive and unique to them. Racing is brutal but at least with the Mavizen TTX02, the racers can start with a proven platform. Mavizen is about growing the grid by being an enabler by those who want to take part.”
Hussain went on to describe the bike as
Frankly, while there is obviously some utility in having a race machine that can accept programming of on-board electronics, or broadcast telemetry from the bike, this sort of general conflation of a physical vehicle with the internet is a bit hard to swallow, not to say deluded.
The internet is a handy way to exchange information and connect to lots of other people. A racing bike is a physical object that must be physically altered and improved in order to go faster. It might be a happier and more pleasant world if these two things were really just different aspects of the same thing and we could win Grand Prix races by having really good web connectivity for our on-board browsers, but unfortunately that's not the way the world works.
But this apparent lunacy aside, the TT02 is a race proven design derived from the Agni motors TTGXP winner, and it's easy to see that making it easier and less expensive for privateer teams to become involved with serious EV racing is bound to draw many more people into the fray and generate tremendous interest, which almost has to help spur innovation in the technology.
