A battery driven motorbike capable of 200mph and 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds…that’s what was on display at The Cottage Hotel when the Nottingham Society of Engineers (NSE) met there last month to hear a presentation.
Professor Pat Wheeler from the University of Nottingham University explained to an enthralled audience what was involved in the design, development and racing of a world-class electric bike.
Pictured are Professor Wheeler, left, and NSE President, Ruddington resident Peter Davison on the bike.
“The NSE has an interesting and entertaining programme of presentations and visits”, says Peter. “Anyone who’s been involved in any branch of engineering or construction is welcome to contact me on 0115 984 5733 or via the Society’s website, www.nottinghamsocietyofengineers.org.uk, for further information.”
