Italian electric motorcycle manufacturer Energica showcased their icons at this year’s INTERMOT. For those who don’t bethink the name, Energica is chosen to be the sole manufacturer of electric bikes for the upcoming MotoE championships.
At the INTERMOT this year, Energica showcased its models which included the Ego Corsa which was tested at demo laps at MotoGP throughout the year. The 2019 Ego Corsa comes with a new graphics option including the Ego Sports Black which will be available along with Lunar White/Titan Gray and Red Passion/Titan Gray options.
The company’s 2019 range features a host of updates and feature including a six-level traction control system as well as eABS and Bosch ABS. Additionally, the bike also gets cruise control as standard along with a new Electronic Throttle Control System that endures more linear and precise control with detection of throttle rotations below 0.01 degree.
For the year 2019, the motorcycles are provided with an optimised charging system that charges the bike 15 per cent faster in ‘Fast Charge’ mode. Meanwhile, the company has also added a ‘silent charging’ mode. The new bike lets the owner cap the charging at a desired point that can be set on the dash.
The Ego models are capable of touching triple digit speeds in 3.0 seconds with a top speed of 240kmph. The bike also features a Vehicle Control Unit that manages the bikes controllers, battery, inverter, charger and ABS in a single unit. It does so with a multi-lap adaptive power management algorithm which monitors thrust and throttle position 100 times a second.
The Brembo brakes on the bike are backed by Bosch ABS that also includes rear lift mitigation. On the dash, the bike sports a 4.3-inch TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity to connect a smart phone.
