Lee is looking forward to getting out on the machine on Friday evening, as the TT zero machines, gain their first laps of the Mountain Course during TT 2016.

Technical modifications for the 2016 SP7 Sarolea’s include enhanced aerodynamics, a modified motor, Ohlins forks, Ohlins rear suspension, a full carbon monocoque frame, whilst the engines are Brushless DC electric motors.

The bikes running Bridgestone tyres, are the latest chapter in the remarkable Sarolea story, that first began in 1850, when they became the first manufacturer of motorcycles in Belgium.

Now 166 years on more momentous moments for the famous marque, could be in prospect on the Mountain Course, as the outfit targets 120 mph laps, alongside aiming for podium finishes.
