A New Generation of Electric Powerhouses
Energica has a couple of new electric superbikes in the works. The company has some new versions of its Ego and Eva EsseEsse9. Those bikes should come in 2020, and Morebikes recently posted some spy shots of the motorcycles out testing.
To be clear, Morebikes, reported that it was the Italian moto-journalists at Moto.IT who first spotted the bikes in Verona, Italy. Verona is only about an hour’s ride from Energica’s home in Modena. The motorcycles in question featured camo wraps. Otherwise, they didn’t look wildly different from the previous generation motorcycles.
Morebikes notes that the motorcycles have new covers and mounts for the battery and electric motor. This could be the company shedding as much weight as possible. The company used a similar approach on the MotoE Energica Eco Corsa racing motorcycles.
The company has not said officially much of anything about its next-generation motorcycles. You can expect the range to increase a little and the weight to drop. It will be interesting to see what else Energica has in store. I would expect the company to continue to innovate in terms of acceleration and top speed, too. Time will tell, but we shouldn’t have to wait too long. Motorcycle shows are fast approaching.
