Energica’s quick electrical bikes are about to get even faster for the 2021 mannequin line because of the brand new RS bundle being distributed throughout the lineup.
The Reparto Sportivo (RS) bundle involves Energica’s electrical bikes courtesy of the corporate’s developments for the MotoE racing collection, of which Energica is the only provider of racing e-bikes.
With the brand new RS bundle being rolled out throughout the 2021 mannequin line, Energica’s bikes will be capable to pull off a 0-60 mph time of simply 2.6 seconds.
For anybody retaining rating at house, that’s actually quick.
I’ve achieved 0-60 mph in 3 seconds on a Harley-Davidson LiveWire, and that was a power to behold. However Energica’s motors are round a 3rd extra highly effective on paper, and people four-tenths of a second really feel so much completely different on the seat of your pants.
Anybody hoping to expertise the brand new RS bundle will discover it out there by February 2021, although it isn’t clear if bikes offered beforehand will assist an RS retrofit.
Energica at present affords three fashions: the 150 mph (241 km/h) racing Ego+, the 125 mph (201 km/h) streetfighter Eva Ribelle, and the 125 mph (201 km/h) retro-styled Eva EsseEsse9 (which simply occurs to be my favourite, if anybody was asking).
Energica has skilled a boom in sales this year, even regardless of a rocky begin to the 12 months when Italy was ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The corporate really started the year strong, slingshotting into excessive pre-orders after debuting a brand new mannequin line on the finish of 2021 with around 60% more range. The bigger battery packs had been welcomed by the business, however the fast progress of the corporate was thrown into limbo when Energica shut down production for a interval final spring whereas the nation was in lockdown.
As soon as the lockdown was lifted, Energica quickly returned to production and has since posted file gross sales numbers.
As Energica CEO Livia Cevolini defined in an announcement supplied to Electrek:
“Regardless of the difficult time period we’re witnessing, we’re extraordinarily proud of the outcomes obtained in current months, that verify our management within the business. The lockdown because of COVID-19, which pressured us to cease manufacturing for a few month, didn’t cease our progress, which exceeds that of the electrical car market.
The MY2020 vary continued to obtain strongly optimistic suggestions on the worldwide scene and within the first eight months of the 12 months, we acquired an order ebook whose countervalue greater than doubled in comparison with our whole 2019 motorbike gross sales.
