Mugen Talks IOMTT Zero: McGuinness and Whittamore Set 120 MPH Goal


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:
