If sportbikes are your thing, it’s difficult to deny Energica’s appeal. The gorgeous Ego was the first to set hearts alight, and all that really separates the Ego and Ego + is whether you opt for the 13.4 kWh base battery pack or the upgraded 21.5 kWh unit that gives it the little “+” next to its name.  

Either bike is available in your choice of Asteroid Gray or Rosso Corsa at no additional charge. If you want the fancy Sport Black kit, which echoes its MotoE livery and may apparently change slightly depending on sponsorship, it’ll cost you an additional $2,714. That does get you some pretty nice red seat stitching that really stands out against the black saddle and fairing, and echoes that trellis frame quite nicely.
