Energica. The First High-Performance Italian 100% Electric Superbike.

EnergicaSuperbike1A “Green Dream” on 2 wheels, this electric bike built in Modena (the Italian Motor Valley), Energica is promoted as a machine with Superbike feelings offering thrill without compromising nature and the environment. Maximum speed is 150 mph (240 km/h). Range is 93 miles at 50 mph (150 km at 80 km/h) – 55 miles at 37 mph (90 km @ 60 km/h) –  31 miles (50 km) on the race track. A Vehicle Control Unit implementing a multi-map adaptive energy and power management algorithm manages the vehicle. During drive, the system carefully monitors 100 times per second the motor’s power, throttle command; chosen engine map, battery status and speed. System also handles regenerative engine braking and regenerative electrical brake, interfacing with the ABS unit. This allows great efficiency in battery energy management and a great drive performance and experience. It constantly monitors batteries, even in key off position in order to ensure battery protection even in long winter storage. Energica Superbike.

    Problem is that the range isn’t really what the manufacturers state. Its actually half for all intents and purposes—- you have to return to where you started started for recharging. Public recharging is meager at best in 90% of the country and even when available its slow. I own a Brammo, btw and converted it to carry its own charging to partially alleviate this but the charging is still s l o w .

    How come it has less battery range riding @37mph than when ridden @50mph? I know Italians have a different method of Motorcycle electrics,having been familiar with old Ducatis.But what gives?

    Terence, I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed that. I suspect they just reported the ranges backwards. If so, that means this bike has a considerably shorter range than the Zeros, which takes it out of consideration for my commute.

    There are a number of us who watch the range stats with acute interest, folks, so please make sure you’re reporting them correctly!
