The inaugural MotoE world championship had its debut race last weekend at the Sachsenring. It was an exciting moment to watch pure electric Energica race machines racing for the first time in history.
18 riders started on 18 MotoE bikes to race around the Sachsenring for 7 laps. The track was a bit damp but the riders pushed the limits. So much so that Lorenzo Savadori crashed which caused a red flag situation. Watch the highlights below.
Electrifying action from start to finish! ⚡️
