Aprilia gives glimpse into electric future

Aprilia have given a glimpse of the future with their ELECTRICa project bike; the brand’s first foray into the EV space. Designed to be a lightweight, zero emission motorcycle, it provides a fun and satisfying ride for maximum freedom and riding pleasure.

The ELECTRICa represents Aprilia’s vision of mobility for the next generation of young riders, with a focus on an easy and accessible user experience. Using all of the know-how made available from the Piaggio Group (that Aprilia is part of), it’s the natural next step.

The group has a long history in electric propulsion, dating back to 1975, having introduced a long line of motorbikes that includes the MP3 Hybrid, the first hybrid scooter in the world. The ELECTRICa builds on that, creating a new machine for the digital generation.

The look is unmistakeably Aprilia, especially from the front, where a modern interpretation of the triple headlamp cluster typical of the brand, stands out to favour stark and clearly sporty lines.

Accessibility is guaranteed by the compact dimensions and the low saddle height, as well as the light weight and the presence of both brake controls on the handlebars. It’s a choice that makes the transition from scooters easier.

The electric motor is positioned in the central area and powers a chain final drive. The keyless system, LCD instrumentation, and phonic wheels in the rims introduce the theme of technology aimed at practicality.

Active electronic aids are provided for a safe riding experience, an area where Aprilia has been a pioneer. While it’s only a concept, it will be interesting to see how much influence the ELECTRICa has on future model development.
