    HISTORIC BELGIAN MOTORCYCLE BRAND RESURRECTED AS ELECTRIC SUPERBIKE

    "A team of Belgian entrepreneurs has resurrected a storied motorcycle brand to create an electric racing bike that will compete in the 2014 TT Zero race on the Isle of Man at the end of May, and also in the FIM eRoadRacing world cup series. Saroléa was one of the first producers of motorcycles in the world when it started building bikes at its Belgian factory in the 1800s. It built a wide range of two-wheelers, including some famous racing champions, before going out of business in 1963. "

    I disagree. I believe it is a YASA 750 with a Rinehart PM100DXR running it.

    Based on the shape of the outer case of the motor (Shown in one Picture), i think it is an EVO-Electric AFM140 Axia Flux motor. Same one as JonesCG is using in his race bike.

    I noticed that one of the stickers on the bike was for Crystalyte Europe. Yeah, the e-bike hub motor people.



    I dug some more and found this:

    I'm a more than a little surprised, actually make that completely shocked and all but sure there's something misleading. But it looks like it might be a Crystalyte developed motor.

    If you go to the Crystaliyte Europe website they are promoting the Sarolea.
