We are a racing team consisting of 30 students from the University of Twente and Saxion university of applied science, by developing fully electric racing motorcycles Electric Superbike Twente wants to show electric vehicles are not only sustainable, but can also be very exciting.
Last year the first electric superbike of the team was build. This bike has 110kW of power which results in an acceleration of 3,6 seconds from 0-100kph. This was enough for the bike to be the best in the MotoE competition last year, which means we are the reigning European Champions of electric motor racing!
The technology in our racing bike can be found in your daily life. By building electric motorcycles we want to help sustainable mobility to gain more popularity and increase the speed of the transition to a sustainable world.
This year we are convinced we can built an even faster bike than last season. We will test our performance in a brand new competition called “the open eSBK competition” (https://openesbk.com/). We will show we still are the team with the best electric motorcycles.
You can help us reach our goal! Our battery cells are the core of our superbike. The 660 cells are pushing us over the finish line. Help us finance the cells by making a donation to the team. You will sponsor one or more cells and if your cell has delivered the best performance after the race, you will get a prize!

Will you drive with us through the heart of Australia? Help us to realize our goal, winning the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019, and you name will shine on the Escort vehicle of our race convoy! The Escort leads our solar car through the Outback. You will join us on every inch of the race!
We are Solar Team Twente. Our team consist of nineteen enthusiastic students of Saxion university of applied sciences and University of Twente. Our goal is to develop the most efficient solar car and drive it 3000 kilometers through the rough Outback, from Darwin to Adelaide. By developing a solar car, creating innovative ideas and inspiring others, we contribute to a more sustainable future. We set our studies on hold for a year and a half to work night and day on our goals.
The development of the most efficient solar car requires the best solar cells. This year we designed our car for the use of a new solar cell type with the highest energy efficiency in Solar Team Twente history! To finance the best solar panel that will get us across the finish line first we need your support! Contributing to our solar panel gives you the opportunity to travel along with your name, a personal message or even a picture.
Make sure that your name, message or picture will be present on the Escort vehicle and support us with a contribution to our solar panel! We are looking forward to your motivating message or picture!
