Energica Ego At AIMExpo, October 18-19Tue, 14 Oct 2014 00:00:00 -0700
Energica will have a presence at the AIMExpo this weekend, October 18-19, with its Ego electric superbike on display for American enthusiasts to see. The Energica project was initiated at the end of 2009 to design and build high performance electric motorcycles based on insights developed at CRP.
In August, 2014, the Energica Motor Company was born officially. The focus of Energica is to provide luxury, high performance riding experiences for urban and suburban riders. Energica has designed, engineered, certified, and will soon start the production of its flagship product: the Energica EGO (www.energicasuperbike.com).
Capable of 150 mph, the Ego makes a claimed 134 hp, and 144 lb.-ft. of torqe – impressive numbers by any measure. The batteries can be recharged within 3.5 hours in AC charge or in less than 30 minutes in DC charge. The battery has a nominal capacity of 11.7 kWh. The braking system is by Brembo and the ABS system is by Bosch.
Learn more about the Ego by seeing the bike in person at the AIMExpo, in the Italian Pavilion, booth 1027. Take a selfie with the Energica Ego and share it on Energica’s Facebook page or Instagram using the hashtag #Energicalized.
The most-liked photos will win a “thrilling” prize from Energica (deadline to share the photos Oct. 20th).
