Energica Ego 45 17 November 14
The Energica brand is the brainchild of the CRP Group, a name you might not be familiar with, unless you’re a Formula 1 racing team, or a top Italian Supercar company, or a NASA R&D scientist. CRP has been supplying the world’s most high performance automotive builders with engineering, 3D printing and advanced materials to build the world’s fastest and most technically-advanced cars for 45 years.
Today, the group has grown to form one of the world’s leading edge high performance automotive companies. And through this synergy, the idea for the next big thing in high technology and speed was born – Energica. The world’s first Italian electric superbike.
Massive Performance, no emissions. 195 Nm torque from 0 RPM to redline, a limited 240 km/h, and a 0 – 100 time of under 3 seconds. Special parts on the Ego45. The Ohlins front fork is a street legal fork but with internal parts used for supersport 600 world championship, 100% adjustable. The Vehicle Control Unit, the VCU, is completely developed inside CRP team and gives a perfect control of the motorbike, from lights to the motor, from safety strategies to riding mode maps and regen braking. It also allows limp mode strategy, that is a very low power to allow even the most distracted rider to reach the closest Energy station or house. And of course the innovative solutions that are already on the Ego motorbike, such as the TFT Color Display with Internal memory for datalogging, Integrated GPS receiver and Bluetooth communication, the rear OHLINS suspension, adjustable, the forged aluminum wheels, and the Brembo brakes with ABS system by Bosch.
The Ego45 will be the first lot of production and delivery will start springtime next year. It is possible from exactly now to order it. The exclusive Ego 45 will be available as a limited edition to special order (a maximum of 45 will be built).
