Energica electric motorcycles have ticked all the necessary boxes and are now on sale across Australia through the Australian Electric Motor Co. (AEMC) and its dealer partners. Four models make up the initial range.
Built in Modena, Italy, among them are The Ego, Eva Ribelle, EsseEsse9, and the new Experia. The first of these is the brand’s sports performance model, and delivers a whopping 126kW of power, with a claimed top speed of 241km/h.
Seamless torque delivers a 100km/h sprint time of just 2.8 seconds. Delivering the same power but in a sports naked configuration is the Eva Ribelle. It’s retro sibling is the EsseEsse9, with sleek retro styling and toned down power – at 80kW.
The Experia has been designed for touring, with a more upright seating position, and more controlled power deliver, at a respectable 75kW.
“This is a big moment for motorcycles in Australia,” AEMC managing director Tobin Page said.
“These bikes have the biggest battery packs, the most powerful motors, the most advanced power management systems and the longest riding range of any electric motorcycle, anywhere.”
We’ve ridden both the Ego and the EsseEsse9, and Exhaust Notes Australia will bring you those reviews in the near future. In the meantime, you can find out more by visiting the AEMC in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, or Zen Motorcycles in Sydney.
