Michael Czysz surveys his creations during a 2012 motorcycle race in Portland.

A MotoCzysz cycle has won the prestigious TT Zero electric motorcycle race for the fourth time.

Michael Rutter captured his third consecutive win riding a bike made by Portland-based MotoCzysz in the race, which is held each June on the Isle of Man. Rutter rode the latest version of MotoCzysz’ E1pc digital superbike.

Rutter’s average speed exceed 109 mph, about five mph faster than he rode in his winning 2012 record-setting effort.

Rutter was the first rider to break the 100 mph barrier during a practice run at last year’s Isle of Man event.

MotoCzysz’ bikes competed at a Portland International Raceway event last year.
