About us The best team in the world

Electric Superbike Twente is a team of 16 enthousiastic student of University of Twente and Saxion. We are building one of the fastest electric racing motorcycles. Our team members all have exciting backgrounds, ranging from electrical and mechanical engineering to sustainable energy technologies. The team works tightly together with enthousiasts in all fields. For example, we are enlightened by PhD-students from University of Twente, teachers from Saxion and partners from various businesses. 

Together with Green Team Twente, we are located at Kennispark Twente at very short distance of the university. So, no racing needed to get to us quickly. Both teams joined forces in summer 2017 and started an office and workplace together. The result is a powerful innovation hub: the Future Factory. Find us here

Electric Superbike Twente has an electrifying goal: building the fastest electric racing motorcycle in the world. With that, we want to show that sustainable transportation is exciting, cool and fun!
