Belgium outfit Sarolea has launched its new bike for the 2015 TT Zero. The machine is called the SP7 and it’s an evolution of last year’s bike. In fact, the new SP7 looks very similar from last year’s version, although there are lots of changes underneath. Most important features are: improved aerodynamics, a revised center of gravity, a reduction in weight, and a more powerful motor.

The electric engine is a beast: it delivers 180 horsepower and 400Nm of torque. Weight is 200 kilogramms, 0-60 mph takes 2.8 seconds and top speed is 168mph. These figures put the SP7 up there with street superbikes from five years ago. The electric motor has one big advantage: torque is available whenever and wherever the throttle is rolled on.

Scottish rider, Robert Wilson, will return to the saddle for Saroléa. He finished fourth place last year.
