Production Energica Eva Gets Fully Revealed
Italian company Energica knows how to tempt us to buy their electric motorcycles.
They are doing it Eva-way.
Eva is the second electric motorcycle from Energica unveiled in November, which turns out to be a streetfighter.
70 kW of power (nearly Nissan LEAF territory) and 170 Nm of torque could send this baby to 200 km/h (124 mph).
The range is estimated at 200 km / 124 miles, but don’t expect that in the real world. Rather you will get half of this at 60 mph, because the battery is 11.7 kWh – still not bad for a motorcycle (Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has 12 kWh).
Energica’s first model is Ego, a more powerful superbike version.
“Energica Eva is the first 100% electric streetfighter made in Italy: a perfect combination of agility and aggressive riding.
The rebellious spirit and easy handling allow the rider to control the power of the bike, making it the best streetfighter for the urban jungle.
Energica Eva has a permanent magnet AC (PMAC) oil cooled motor that produces 70kW (95 hp c.ca) of instantaneous power and a torque of 170 Nm.
The electric streetfighter has a range up to 200km (ECO mode) and can reach a top speed of 200km/h in Sport mode.
Eva’s battery, inverter, charger and ABS are constantly monitored and managed by a sophisticated Vehicle Control Unit, like Energica Ego.
Energica Eva does not have a gearbox or a clutch. Everything is regulated through the ride-by-wire system, allowing you to control the acceleration and deceleration of the motor with the integrated regenerative torque braking fully adjustable by the rider. A coasting feature is provided as a “neutral” position between acceleration and regeneration.
The streetfighter is fully compatible with commercial recharging stations or can be charged at home. Energica Eva is the only electric streetfighter in the world with an integrated fast charge system on board.”
