EICMA: Energica EGO, EGO45 and EVA Details (w/video)

NOV 10 2014 BY TDILLARD

Via Motorcycle.com, we found an interesting video with Giampiero Testoni, Energica’s CTO, going into some unprecedented detail on the EGO and EGO45 models hitting the streets next year.  Don’t worry, we took notes:

  • Design changes to allow better, more efficient, easier service of the bike
  • Improvements in electronics, dash display
  • NMC (Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt) battery chemistry
  • Patent pending air cooling for battery pack
  • Battery weight with case is 230lbs (total curb weight is 570 lbs)
  • Evaluating battery chemistry for “next model”
  • Separate cooling for motor (oil system), controller (water cooling) and battery (air cooling)
  • Weight distribution moved slightly to rear: ratio is 53/47 (F/R)
  • 220V onboard charger for 3.5hr charge, 1/2hr to 80% SOC available
  • Adjustable footpegs on EGO 45, carbon fiber, choice of finish and color
