Segway’s 2011 Sponsorship of MotoCzysz Racing - A Tremendous Success!
In 2011, Segway Inc. officially became the title sponsor of MotoCzysz Racing. The relationship was new, exciting and focused on winning - while also proactively promoting electric motorsports and personal transportation.
"What a year it has been! We’re thrilled with the performance of the MotoCzysz Racing Team,” said Wayne Mitchell, CEO of Segway Inc. Michael Czysz, CEO & Founder of MotoCzysz added, “We appreciated Segway’s sponsorship and we look forward to exploring additional opportunities to work together.”
During this racing season MotoCzysz’s latest model, the E1pc, performed incredibly well on the circuit. Its design harnesses increased onboard energy, nearly doubling horsepower while simultaneously reducing the bike’s overall weight. This provided a distinct competitive advantage on the track and translated to podium finishes at some of the world’s most prestigious electric motorcycle races. The wins, all earned on the same E1pc bike, included:
“The level of technological innovation that was achieved with MotoCzysz’s E1pc in the past year was a marvel,” commented Mitchell. “Winning these races did wonders to solidify its reputation as the world’s most technologically advanced electric bike. In addition, it built the market’s interest in electric transportation and that was one of our primary goals in committing to this sponsorship.”
