Santa Pod is used to hosting world recognised speed events, however, it seems that they have not had many vehicles as slow though their speed traps than when Robert went down to complete the baseline testing on the city motorcycle. It was a great day and the data gained will set the benchmark for the real-world proof of concept (WMC300FR) to be measured against, where White Motorcycle Concepts are targeting a 15-20% improvements on a number of metrics. We will be back in 2021 with the modified city motorcycle and are looking forward to seeing how the enhanced model performs.
“One of the best baseline tests we can perform is a straight line speed test and we are lucky to have such a great facility in Santa Pod right on our doorstep. This test provided timing for a number of distances through the acceleration curve and whilst I did get some strange looks from the other participants there is a great community at the track and they were all interested to know what I was doing” Robert White Founder and CEO of White Motorcycle Concepts.
