Isle of Man TT and British Supersport racer, Lee Johnston, has joined forces with forward-thinking EV manufacturer, SUNRA, utilising a zero emission MIKU SUPER for this season’s paddock duties.
A renowned and popular figure in the UK motorcycle racing scene, Johnston, racing for the Ashcourt Racing Team in this year’s British Supersport Championship, took delivery of his custom painted Miku Super during the recent pre-season test at Silverstone Circuit.
Talking about going EV, Johnston commented, “As great as it is to reduce emissions, above everything else, the MIKU SUPER is great fun. For use around the paddock, local journeys and for getting around at events like the Isle of Man TT, it’s pretty much perfect. Decent range, the ability to charge practically anywhere is a real bonus without the need to carry extra fuel too. I’m looking forward to getting out on it as much as possible this season.”
As well as the standard MIKU SUPER features, Johnstone’s SUNRA mirrors the Ashcourt team livery, giving the electric 125cc equivalent a truly unique look.
The MIKU SUPER features a 3KW motor, offering great overall performance, easily reaching 50mph, with a range in excess of 60 miles and the ability to charge from a UK 3-pin plug. All models come with a two-year unlimited mileage warranty, with the first supplied (removable) batteries benefiting from a three-year or 18,000 mile warranty too.
