Italy’s new electric superbike is all set to rock the biking world and motorcycle enthusiasts.
The machine is a trimmed down version of the Energica Ego, which was announced last year and considered as the only electrical superbike matching up to racing standards.
Energica Ego is powered by a 136 HP motor that can take you to speeds of upto 218 kmph. Priced around $25,000 to $30,000, the bike is scheduled to hit the market in 2015. The bike’s battery can be fully charged in 3.5 hours and can travel up to 150km.
The Eva was unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in Italy on November 5.
CRP, the company behind the Energica models, is more known among the racing fraternity producing high-end automotive engineering. CRP has been supplying components to Formula 1. In fact, its idea is to make Energica the Ferrari for the biking fraternity. To what extent it would succeed will be based on how fast it can bring down the pricing, to make the machine more affordable and increase the battery life.
