Welcome to the Electric Vehicle Team
We practice common sense design by utlilizing industry standard tools and design techniques while maintaing a focus on taking initiative and independence. All design is performed by students with guidance from senior members and outside domain experts.
The focus of the team is on one of our three electric vehicles: A 2005 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6RR rebuilt into an electric superbike.
We tune and improve our bike to perform in races such as the eMotoRacing all-electric race series, represnting RIT and racing against other schools.
