I used my trusty iPhone 4 smartphone's video camera to shoot some video of some of the motorcycles doing their free practise runs at the Bol d'Or Open link in a new window at Magny-Cours. Obviously I also filmed the e-Power electric motorcycles, so here's a brief video clip of not only the e-bikes, but also comparing them in the same curve with a "normal" bike.

The "normal" motorcycles were the Bol d'Argent category, so not full race endurance motorcycles. The first bit is a warm up lap for the e-bikes, followed by a fast lap, followed by a "normal" bike, followed again by 2 more of the electric ones. You'll notice not much, if any, difference.

I think you'll need to start getting used to seeing more and more footage of electric bike races, but it might take much longer if I look at FIM Open link in a new window's attempt at organizing the e-Power race. It's just comical, and I'm not talking about the teams, but the organization.

Anyway, enough ranting, here's the video:
