Energica announced that it has recently won a tender from UGAP (Union des Groupements d’Achats Publics), France’s leading public central purchasing body.
“We are proud of the trust placed in us by the French central purchasing body and are delighted to be working with such an important institution,” said Livia Cevolini, CEO of Energica Motor. “This new business extension opens up extraordinary possibilities not only for the immediate present but also the long-term future of the company. The French government is implementing important policies supporting the adoption of electric vehicles also looking on the next Olympics. We are honored to be part of in this transition”.
In November 2022, UGAP published a tender for 2 and 3-wheeled vehicles destined for public customers, including French police agencies, and Energica was chosen from among applicants. The batch won by Energica is related to the supply of “road trail” type motorcycles with over 8 kW of power.
“We are very pleased that this ambitious collaboration between Energica and Durisotti is starting with this great project, prepared and won together. All Durisotti’s teams are mobilized to start the production and the commercialization of the motorcycles designed for law enforcement.” Stated Philippe BAUDON, Durisotti SAS CEO
The successful bid also included Durisotti SAS, a company specializing in modifying 2/4 wheel vehicles, and SARL Tendance Roadster, Energica’s first dealership in France since 2017 who will serve as the local coordinator.
“We’re very proud of our technical expertise and our commitment. Experia can bring many advantages to patrolling operations thanks to its best-in-class range, and in urban environments.” stated Giacomo Leone, Energica Sales Director ROW. “Each Experia can be customised with local police colours and following the equipment mounting, lighting, radio and siren requirements of each country.”
“We are delighted to have been selected by UGAP. This is a great recognition of all the work provided during these years. We are proud and look forward to starting this new human, industrial and above all exciting adventure.” Stated Guillaume Tirard, Tendance Roadster Managing Director.
The Experia Green Tourer model specially adapted by Energica will follow in the footsteps of the 88 EsseEsse9+ motorcycles provided for the 2022 G20 Bali Summit by the Indonesian National Police.
