Saturday’s practice was cancelled due to high winds, we’re looking around for any crumb of IOMTT Zero news we can find – but this is hardly a crumb.  Take a look at some detailed shots of this amazing bike, and listen to rider John McGuinness and team leader Colin Whittamore talk about the bike, past years and the goals for this year:

Here is their IOMTT Zero performance since 2012, when they started:

Races: Place Rider Team Speed Time
2012 2 John McGuinness Mugen Shinden 102.215 mph 22′ 08.85
2013 2 John McGuinness Honda Mugen Shinden 109.527 mph 20′ 40.133
2014 1 John McGuinness Honda Shinden San / Team Mugen 117.366 mph 19′ 17.300
2 Bruce Anstey Honda Shinden San / Team Mugen 115.048 mph 19′ 40.625

There’s more about Mugen’s history at the Isle of Man, as well as a great (if lengthy) interview with Whittamore on The Electric Chronicles: The Mugen Timeline
