In the last few years, Energica has gained quite a handful of popularity in the electric motorcycle industry. Then the big thing happened, and it became the sole supplier of electric race machines for the MotoE world championship. This really put the company out in the world.
Now, Energica is planning to develop new and smaller electric motorcycles that will be more accessible and affordable to a larger spectrum of audience. Of course, we are very much familiar with Energica’s Ego, Eva, and EsseEsse9 that have blasting performance and a similar sort of price tag.
The company recently released a statement talking about its intentions regarding smaller electric motorcycles. The statement said, “Energica Motor Company, leading company of high-performing electric motorcycle and single manufacturer of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup for the three-year period 2019-2021, and Dell’Orto SpA, a historic manufacturer of electronic fuel injection systems, have signed an agreement for the development and production of a new type of Power Unit for small-size (power range 8/11kW) and medium-size (power range up to 30 kW) electric motorcycles (EV).”
With this, Energica will step into the smaller electric motorcycle segment which already has quite a few players offering decently priced and spec-ed electric bikes. However, these machines are currently popular in Europe. Let’s see what outcome does the agreement between Energica and Dell’Orto SpA produces.
