Energica Ego 45 – First Drive Video Review
Here is an interesting Motorcyclenews.com first test drive review of Energica Ego 45, which for Energica Ego is equivalent to a limited Signature edition in ‘Tesla terminology’.
The bike looks stunning, and really could be considered the Tesla of motorcycles.
The running sound is very appealing (as you can hear sounds normally drowned out by an engine). Range was estimated at 50-90 miles depending on style (sporty or economical), but you always get capability to fast charge in 30 minutes using Combo chargers (same as in case of some plug-in cars today such as the BMW i3 and Chevy Spark EV).
Energica Ego/Ego 45 is quite heavy because of its on board 11.7 kWh of batteries, but according to Motorcyclenews, the driving experience is impressive thanks to torque and the characteristics of an electric motor (100 kW peak).
The first couple of dealers already signed on to sell these motorcycles in Europe and U.S. (see map) with more to come, we believe.
