The new Energica Ego will be available for orders in 2015, but the company has released a preproduction model which is pretty close to the final version.

The new sports motorcycle represents a step into the future of electric two wheelers and is packed with a comprehensive list of modern technologies.

On paper, the Energica Ego’s specs look pretty cool. At its heart lies a permanent magnet ac (pmac), oil cooled motor that cranks out 100 kW available from 4900 rpm to 10500 rpm and 195 Nm of electric torque available at its peak from 0 to 4700 rpm. The engine can propel you to a top speed of 240 kmph and is powered by a set of 11.7 kWh batteries which offer a range of 150 km at a constant speed of 80 km/h or 50 km at maximum speeds.

For the moment, we don’t have the exact price of the motorcycle, but we can expect it to be somewhere around the $23,000 mark, which is a pretty decent number.

Energica Boosts Performance For MY17 Models

Even More HP and Torque for Eva And Ego

Love ’em or hate ’em, the Euro 4 homologation rules are in effect and here to stay, and Energica Motor Company has joined the ranks of compliant manufacturers for the 2017 model year. Specs confirmed after the homologation see the Eva and Ego each have boosts in power and torque — almost a scary thing consider how badass these rides were before. Starting with the more tame stablemate, we have the Eva electric streetfighter that cranks out 108 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque, a full seven pound-feet more. The full-on sportbike Ego sees a boost up to 145 ponies and 147 pounds o’ grunt up from 143 pounds. I would remind readers that as an electric bike, all that grunt is available just after you crack the “throttle,” and so these bikes are ridiculously quick.

2016 Energica Ego

Welcome to our brave new world, where clean (green?) energy is finally emerging from under the corporate boot heels of big coal and oil interests. Technological leaps come quickly, and the various industries can scarcely keep up with the improvements as they scramble to take advantage of it. Recent advances in battery technology are giving rise to truly functional vehicular designs, and the 2016 Ego from Energica is an excellent example of just how viable electric bikes can be, at least as far as raw performance goes. In fact, this battery-powered adrenaline mill could give many dino-juice sportbikes a run for their money – as long as it was a short race, anyway.

2016 Energica Ego45

2016 Energica Ego45

We live in a day and age where technological advancements abound, and it seems that nearly every week sees the release of something bigger-better-faster-smaller than before – by a significant margin. It is through this lens that I view the new, 2016 Ego45 from Energica. While I am unsure if the model name “Ego” means something in Italian, or if it’s a declaration of what the bike is meant to stroke, the end result is the same – this is one heck of a bike, electric or not!

Sure, there are a handful of other manufacturers making electric bikes, but in terms of performance and luxe features the Ego45 stands head and shoulders above the rest (so far). Any ambiguities in the name ends with the number “45,” as this is to be a numbered, limited-production model with only 45 scheduled to be built per special order. This adds an element of exclusivity to an otherwise already remarkable machine, and is sure to be a draw for riders who want that “little something extra.” Let’s take a look at what else you get with the Ego45, other than membership to a rather exclusive only-45-in-the-entire-world club.
