Great job by Electric Motorsport! Congrats! Are you guys going by Native Cycles now?

I am wondering if anyone bought the bike after the win. The open class bikes were for sale for I believe $32,800?

Also, thanks a lot for joining and posting!

Yes $32,800 was the price I've seen in a few other posts. No reports anyone got them that I have seen.

Todd told me the IOM government bought it for roughly 30k.

It was actually 20K sterling, however that converted at the time.  Electric Motorsport sold the winning bike as per the rules of the open class race.  Thankfully, our rider Chris Heath who is an Isle of Man resident was assigned care taker of the motorcycle so it still gets a lot of exposure in the UK.

The Native TTXGP as we call it, is toured to shows and races all around the UK.   Usually for display, demonstration, and parade laps.
It often does the IoM drags where it has beaten several two strokes, and the team Agni bike at least once.   

Still wish I had it. It was my daily driver for at least two years.
