The Italian factory CRP is working in its headquarters on the new version of the Italian electric racing motorcycle, the eCRP 1.4 that will replace the eCRP 1.2, the European Champion of the TTXGP 2010.

The eCRP 1.4 will be the strong point of the 2011 season for the Modena factory, and it is to be made available to all teams, regardless of electric motorcycle racing series.

The new green-tech TTXGP motorcycle will have some improvements, which will be revealed with a detailed technical sheet in early 2011.

Meanwhile, regarding the latest news on the upcoming season, the championship TTXGP made some changes to the technical regulations for next season, namely the introduction of two classes, the Open Formula GP and Formula 75.
