The eMotoRacingSM series is the premier zero emissions motorcycle road racing series in the US. The eMotoRacingSM was established in 2014 to fill the demand for a zero-emissions motorcycle racing series that would demonstrate advanced and compact e-superbike technology and excitement. Though the fortunes of research, development, manufacturing and testing are unpredictable. Competing University teams in this series include Rochester Institute of Tech, Virginia Tech, Penn State, University of Calgary, Sherbrooke University in Quebec, Ohio State and University of Michigan. Other programs such as Lawrence Techs are in their infancy.
