    A place for posts relevant to all Enérgica’s.

    I found this infographic.. well, informative and graphical! :D

    These bits were particularly interesting:
    “30% growth in 12 months” &
    “Energica and Dell'Orto SpA, a historic manufacturer of electronic fuel injection systems, signed an agreement for the development and production of a new type of Power Unit for small- size (power range 4/11kW) and medium size (power range up to 30 kW)”

    https://pdf.energica.link/investor-...YmoNoZvtjAXRNlvBoI9XsvLwAm-Bf6eLyePxgnn2gKF8Y

    and appears the results of that development was the RaceTech 21.5kWh battery in the MY2020+ models yielding 7.5-10% more torque and 200% more urban range while reducing weight by 5%.

    Please. Stop with these Energica posts. I gave up riding on the streets years ago, just too crazy out there now. Now every time I read about these Energica's part of my brain is running how to purchase one scenarios without the other side of my braining knowing, or approving of it, Lol.

    No seriously, its getting harder and harder to come up with reasons not to purchase one of these things. If I felt a bit more comfortable on the roads nowadays I'd have one in my garage already. Still noodling the idea around, I may just go off the deep end and get one just for the hell of it (the old not getting any younger, wealthier, or healthier so get one now dealio - what I did with my Alta).

    Similar thoughts with what woodsrider said - and I'm thinking about how an EsseEsse would do on FS roads from time to time with appropriate tires....

    A four year old video with the heavier, slower Ego, and still fun to watch :)

    Wow. That's tempting.

    Does anyone have any real seat time on an ego vs an eva? I checked cycle ergos and they have no energica's listed for reference.

    I'd really like the ego but not if it's super cramped.

    I’ve rode both and each are built on the same chassis, have the same performance numbers, and same battery, etc., main differences are the rider position, fairing differences, and top speed.

    If you’re wanting a more aggressive riding position and plan on track attacks, I’d suggest the EGO, as it’ll keep pulling all the way to 150+ mph where the naked Ribelle is controller limited to 125mph, perhaps for stability/aerodynamics.

    I’ve owned GSXR’s and CBR’s and the EGO feels like a comfortable CBR 1000 while the EVA/Ribelle feels like my FZ-07, or other naked sport bikes and likely a better choice if you’re doing mostly street riding as it has a semi-upright rider position, a lower seat height, and bars closer and wider for easier maneuvering. Hope this helps!

    :hmmmmm

    I wonder if you could swap the clip-ons on the ego and put on an lsl superbar kit.

    Energica to remain as MotoE™ motorcycle supplier until 2022

    A contract extension sees the Italian innovator remain on board for at least another season of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup

    MotoE, 2020

    Dorna Sports is thrilled to confirm that Energica will remain the single motorcycle supplier to the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup until 2022, with a contract extension ensuring the Italian marque’s cutting edge Ego Corsa maintains its place as a world leader in the field of electric racing for at least a further season.

    Energica has proven a perfect partner for the project since MotoE™ began in 2019, and will remain a pivotal part of the Cup as it continues to go from strength to strength.

    Interesting seeing how these two top performing Italians compare; a $27,895 Ducati Panagale V4S and a $16,110 Enérgica Eva 107

    4498C76C-B4E3-4AEF-8C15-8C9A06918980.jpeg

    quick translation: Enérgica Eva is quicker, Panagale is faster.

    Enérgica‘s even quicker, lighter, faster variants; the Ribelle ($22,160) or the Ego+ ($23,870) have up to twice the range and the latter can go up to 150+mph.. both still less than the Panagale V4S. Which matters more? To go faster than 150mph or be quicker off the line and on a roll? 99.99% of my rides are below 150mph, let alone 125, so the choice is easy. Quicker for less money seems like a winning combo to me. One “E-cati” to go please!

    Uncut video of an Enérgica charging session:

    30% at 5:30 (charge starts)
    80% at 19:00 (11.5 minutes)
    85% at 20:30 (13 minutes)
    90% at 21:55 (14.5 minutes)



    Top offs in less than 15 minutes is where all electric motorcycles should ideally be for extended distance riding. Depending on how far you’re going until you reach your hotel, home, etc, one might not even need to charge to 90%, or 80% for that matter.

    Energica, maker of 150 MPH electric motorcycles, is now testing 50-125cc level e-bikes

    Micah Toll
    - Oct. 15th 2020 9:52 am ET

    [​IMG]

    Last year, Italian electric racing motorcycle manufacturer Energica
    announced its intent to develop smaller, lighter weight electric motorbikes.

    Now the company has progressed to bench testing a system that could become the powertrain for more affordable electric motorcycles designed for urban mobility. The quest for smaller electric motorcycles comes in the form of a partnership between Energica and Dell’Orto.

    The two companies have created a project known as E-Power, designed to create an innovative electric propulsion system for sustainable urban mobility.

    While Energica is better known for its 241 km/h (150 mph) racing electric motorcycles that are used in the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, the E-Power drivetrain would be considerably lower power than Energica’s 107 kW (145 hp) powerplants.


    [​IMG]
    The E-Power project will cover power levels from 2.5 kW to 15 kW (3.3 to 20 hp).

    The lower end of that range would be similar to many 45 km/h (28 mph) electric scooters.

    The higher end of that range could potentially reach highway speeds of 100 km/h (60 mph), though Energica has not yet released any top speed specs for the higher power level options.

    The company has revealed that a modular 48V and 2.3kWh battery pack would power the vehicles, and multiple batteries could presumably be used on larger power models.

    [​IMG]

    As the company continued:

    E-power is capable of satisfy all the needs at urban level and can be recharged via home charging sockets, without the need of ad-hoc charging infrastructures.

    The system developed by Dell’Orto and Energica distinguishes itself thanks to a strong integration that reduces the number of components and thus simplifies the system.

    The control strategies of the system could make us of the decade of experience by Energica in the electric mobility sector (road and racing), and of almost 90 years of experience by Dell’Orto in motorcycling, and matches perfectly with Dell’Orto’s expert knowledge in small and mid-size industrial-scale applications.”

    Enérgica Ego+ just broke the previous record for quickest 1/4 mile time for a stock electric motorcycle.

    10.5 pass at 134.95 with an RT of .065 for a potential 10.4 run.

    Kind of a unicorn motorcycle but it's still considered a stock production motorcycle
