Newsletter of July 2020

The last full time month of team '19/'20! Next month we have time to take a break if we want, however testing will continue and we will also start loading boxes for the move to the new office!


Beginning of the year
End of the year
What started as a group of students with the dream of building an amazing superbike, grew to be a tight team of friends proud of what they have achieved together! Albeit at 1,5 meter distance.
But soon it is time for a new team to take over! We are very happy to say that we have 14 students joining our ranks!
This month we already had our first meeting with the new team. We discussed the goal for next year, looked around the new office, and had a relaxed evening to get to know each other better. The new team will start in September!
To give the team the opportunity to really show family and friends what we have done this year, we organized a friends and family day. In groups, guests got a tour along several expositions in the office. Every exposition was dedicated to a certain aspect of the year e.g. design phase, production, etc. The tour ended of course with some cake and the Apex-RS!
We really enjoyed the day and the enthusiasm of our guests. We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did!

Apex-RS news

Production this month was all about the dyno. We have done several dyno tests to make sure everything is working exactly as it should be. It has revealed a few issues but also made us very excited to finally see the Apex-RS in action and hear the electric motor scream to 260 km/h. Check out our social media to see (and hear) the Apex-RS reach 200 km/h for the first time!
All the dyno tests and long days of troubleshooting and fixing issues culminated this month in the first test ride of the Apex-RS! Last Friday, on the parking lot on the campus of the University of Twente, the Apex-RS made its first real meters!

What's next for the Apex-RS?

The team will have a holiday. Meaning: the team is free to take a much needed break and won't be working full time every day anymore. However, work on the Apex-RS will continue.
Preparations for the move to the new office will start so team 4 can start there in September.
The current team's engineers will work part time on the Apex-RS from September on to make sure we get the bike competing in races as quickly as possible.
