EV Superbikes - What the hell are they doing here in Japan?? Japan has the best bikes and should have already had EV Superbikes on the roads by now.
Well this is the Energica from my mother's birth country Italy ... Stats are good but I do not really like the look of it at the front.
Energica: the first electric streetbike with racing DNA.
The key word is Evolution. CRP's challenge is to deliver green technology with its innovation, not only on the track, but also on the street. CRP’s know-how is the result of 40 years of experience working alongside some of the best international motorsport teams.
Energica is CRP Racing's first concept of an electric streetbike.
After the success in the racing world of the eCRP, the electric competition racebike, runner up at the 2011 World Championships and European champion in 2010, CRP has decided to take to the “street” with the first 100% electric motorcycle prototype.
It’s called Energica and is just like a real electric sports motorcycle.
The CRP streetbike is an Italian style two wheeler, with a strong racing personality characterised by its racing DNA and state of the art green technology.
With Energica the electric motorbike is no longer just an example of alternative sustainable mobility, but has become a true model of high technology and design on two wheels, capable of giving you the same unique sensations as the traditional models.
The Energica project is underway thanks to the experience that CRP has gained race after race at the FIM e-Power and TTXGP electric motorcycle championships.
After having travelled for two years throughout Europe and America, taking the eCRP, one of the best electric racing vehicles, to the track, the CRP staff have perfected every single detail in order to design a unique electric streetbike specimen, which today is a viable alternative to the next-generation endothermic motorbikes.
Energica is in the development phase, but some technical data is already available.
