Source: website Energica | This year, there will be numerous additions from Energica at EICMA, especially the introduction of a new power unit that increases the 2020 model range with the Ego+, the Eva EsseEsse9+ and the brand-new Eva Ribelle. Thanks to the new power unit, the electric motorcycles made in Modena get a improved torque: 200 Nm for the Eva EsseEsse9+, 215 Nm for the Ego+ and Eva Ribelle. It is not all about performance, however, as weight and riding range are also positively affected: the MY2020 models are 5% lighter and have a 60% higher riding range.
The electric streetfighter (presented at EICMA) gets a bigger power unit and design that bring out the Rebellious (Ribelle) soul of this new Energica model.
Energica Eva Ribelle is powered by a new 21.5 kWh battery pack and an oil-cooled synchronous motor with permanent magnets, capable to deliver 107kW of power (around 145 HP) with a 215 Nm (158 lb. ft.) torque. The electric streetfighter has a riding range up to 400km (249 miles) and a maximum speed of 200km/h (125 mph).
Just like every Energica bike, Eva Ribelle can be recharged using DC fast-charging stations resulting in 400 km (250 miles) of city range achieved in about one hour (40 min charging up 80% SOC); or through Level 2 charging at 67 km (41.5 miles) per hour. Eva Ribelle is available in 2 colours: Stealth Grey and Rosso Corsa (Racing Red).
Ego – Eva EsseEsse9 MY2020 new colour schemes and power unit
The Ego sportbike and the classic Eva EsseEsse9 got a fresh new look and power. From next year, both motorcycles and the third model of the Modena-based company will be available with the new 21.5 kWh power unit, which provides 215 Nm (158 lb. ft.) and 200 Nm (148 lb. ft.) of torque, respectively, while guaranteeing a riding range up to 400km (249 miles.).
The Ego will feature two new colours schemes, Rosso Corsa and Asteroid Grey, on display side by side with the Ego Sport Black – a version inspired by the livery of the Ego Corsa – the official bike of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup. Available under reservation is the extra option Kit Corsa Clienti, developed exclusively for track use.
The classic Eva EsseEsse9 gets a brand-new colour scheme, the Modena Yellow, and it will be available for purchase – along with the Shocking Blue and the Metal Black versions – from 2020.
The Ego and Eva EsseEsse9 models will be available in two versions: Ego ed Eva EsseEsse9 with the 13.4 kWh battery and Ego+ and Eva EsseEsse9+ with a 21.5 kWh power unit.
All the MY2020 Energica models will be on sale with fast charging technology, 4.3’’ TFT colour display dashboard, 4 riding modes and 4 Regenerative Maps (Low, Medium, High, Off), Traction Control, Cruise Control, long-range connectivity Energica Connected Ride and Park Assistant as standard features.
The USB port will be standard on Eva Ribelle and Eva EsseEsse9 (optional on the Energica Ego). A new Keyless Ignition System will also be available as optional equipment.
Energica connected ride
Energica unveiled at Eicma the new long range connectivity developed with Octo Telematics, the leading global provider of telematics solutions and data analysis for the automotive insurance sector. Thanks to this partnership, all Energica electric motorcycles will be equipped, as standard, with remote connectivity. This new technology vastly extends the full expanse of information already available on Energica motorcycles, thanks to the existing short range local connectivity that relies on Bluetooth technology.
The on-board telematic device (ProShare XT) Octo Telematics, natively installed on Energica motorcycles, will allow real-time monitoring of the performance of the motorcycle through an app. This allows transmission of extensive information on the status of the bike, and intelligent alerts notifying the rider or owner if there is an interruption of the recharge or unexpected movement of the bike. It also allows immediate location and sharing of riding routes and data.
