“Despite the challenging period of time we’re witnessing, we’re extremely happy with the results obtained in recent months, that confirm our leadership in the industry. The lockdown due to Covid-19 which forced us to stop production for about a month, did not stop our growth, which exceeds that of the electric vehicle market.” Says Livia Cevolini, CEO Energica Motor Company.
“The MY2020 range continued to receive strongly positive feedback on the international scene and in the first eight months of the year we received an order book whose countervalue more than doubled compared to our entire 2019 motorcycle sales.”
“Energica production continues to accelerate. We have increased operational capacity by delivering over 78% of the order book. In addition, the sales network now has more than 70 dealers worldwide and has grown by 72% in the last 12 months.”
“The electric market, unlike the traditional IC one, is confirmed as one of the main growing trend in the global economy. We are extremely satisfied with the results and market feedback on our products, whose technological development has had an incredible boost with MotoE™”.
“We will continue with great pride to be FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup Unique Manufacturer also in 2022: the extension of the contract with Dorna confirms Energica as the global technological leader in high-performance electric motorcycles for at least another two years. Combined with the past 10 years this guarantees us an unbridgeable competitive advantage. The championship has also proved to be a very useful platform for technological advances and the visibility of Energica in international markets”.
The MY2021 Energica range will introduce to the market the new RS version for all 3 models (Ego +, Eva Ribelle and Eva EsseEsse9 +) and the new Corsa Clienti Kit.
ENERGICA RS VERSION

“The RS version meets the most demanding customers by adding racing-derived performance to our entire range +.” Says Giampiero Testoni, CTO Energica.

A decade of innovation that has created a real Electric Motor Valley in our territory.”
In the RS version, the VCU implements a new mapping and parameterization, underlining even more the performance and exciting character derived from the Energica experience in MotoE™. The terrific acceleration already typical of Energica motorcycles is now enhanced by two-tenths of a second compared to the existing MY2021 + versions: 2.6 sec 0-100kmh, 0-60 mph
“These first two seasons of MotoE™ have helped to create a huge amount of experience that is constantly being transferred to our road models. From Race to Road we continue to dictate the pace of excellence in our field, and the innovations we present this year are a prime example of this.” continues Testoni.
