Excitement Builds as FIM E-Xplorer World Cup Heads to India

Valentin Guyonnet, CEO and co-founder of E-Xplorer, expresses eagerness to engage with Indian motorcycle manufacturers, noting India's imminent status as the world's leading two-wheel market. The enduring nine-year partnership underscores a commitment to a long-term vision, particularly in collaboration with Indian motorcycle manufacturers, according to Guyonnet.

Additionally, Guyonnet reveals E-Xplorer's plans to establish a national championship and initiate grassroots programs in India. Although the final location is yet to be confirmed, India is set to host the 2024 finale from November 29 to December 1. Detailed information about the Indian team participating in the 2024 season, including its riders, will be disclosed in the upcoming weeks.


FIM E-Xplorer World Cup

The FIM E-Xplorer World Cup stands out as an endurocross series showcasing electric motocross bikes, representing a blend of factory and private teams.

Teams are tasked with developing their own e-bikes, falling into two distinct categories. The Hyperbikes category features prototype machines with batteries up to 7kWh and adheres to a standard MX bike wheelbase. On the other hand, the GT category encompasses bikes based on production models but extensively modified for racing purposes. Each team is required to have both a male and a female rider.

In its debut season, the E-Xplorer World Cup ventured across Europe, with rounds taking place in diverse locations such as Barcelona and the Swiss mountains of Crans Montana. The upcoming second season is set to expand into Asia, with Japan hosting the season opener on February 16-17, and India securing the honor of hosting the finale in November.

Courses are designed with a variety of obstacles, including rock piles, logs, dirt jumps, and challenging bumpy sections. The races emphasize more than just outright speed, focusing on showcasing rider skill and strategic prowess.

Each round comprises three separate 10-minute races for both male and female participants. The top four teams, determined by scores from earlier races, engage in a relay duel, with the best teams advancing to the final showdown.
