Electric motorcycles are going to be a bigger thing in the future, and Energica will likely be one of the key players in that space. The company has already had a good year. In the first couple of months of 2020, they sold more bikes than all of 2019. Now, the company reports it has seen a 41 percent of its pre-orders come from the U.S., according to electrek.
That would suggest that this Italian company has caught the eye of the American market and will be focusing quite a bit of its energy here. According to the company, around 50 percent of those pre-orders from the U.S. have already been fulfilled, meaning customers have taken delivery of them.
A big part of this, I would expect is that Energica has a battery pack that offers an impressive range. The new battery increased capacity by 62 percent. That gives the top bike a 112-mile range on the highway and a 250-mile range in urban environments. Pair that with the whopping 159 lb-ft of torque from the electric motor and the ability to charge to 80 percent battery capacity in just 40 minutes and you have an enticing package.
