Energica, the Italian electric sports bike producer, is growing. Not only in their product range and their product strength but also in fame with much publicity from its involvement as the sole motorcycle provider in the MotoE championship that joined the MotoGP series in 2019. For 2020, its product range is strengthening hugely with such improvements as 60% more range, 10% more torque and 5% less weight. Most of this can be attributed to the new 21.5kWh power unit that will be fitted to all 2020 models.
What’s more, anyone who orders a 2020 model from their online order form before the end of December will receive a free carbon kit consisting of a sleek front mudguard, a rear mudguard and a chain guard.
In South Africa, the Energica brand is looked after by Electronia, the company that specialises in electric and electronic vehicles and goods. The product range includes the famous Ego and Ego+ sportbikes on which the MotoE bike is based that pushes 145hp and a massive 215Nm of torque. The Eva EsseEsse9 and EsseEsse9+ are naked machines with a stunning retro style that push 109hp and 200Nm of torque.
New for 2020 is the Eva Ribelle that fulfils the streetfighter demand. The electric motor is taken from the Ego and pushes the same 145hp and 215Nm of torque as the sportbike but with a naked style and an upright seating position. The long-range lithium-ion battery has up to 400km of city range with the DC Fast Charge system that covers six kilometres of range for every minute of charging.
