The day after the final showdown of the 2019 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, Energica – the single manufacturer of the series – was back in action both at the ‘Ricardo Tormo Circuit’ in Valencia and on the roads surrounding the iconic Spanish track, for an extensive test involving media (TV, press and digital) from ten different countries.
They were able to try first-hand the same exact Ego Corsa machines that were on track during the #ValenciaGP, as well as hitting the road aboard the stunning MY2020 motorcycles that were officially unveiled at Milan’s EICMA motorcycle exhibition the week before (Ego+, Eva EsseEsse9+ and the new Eva Ribelle).
Blessed by much-warmer and windless conditions in the morning and early afternoon than there had been for the race, these representatives of the international media could enjoy some once-in-a-lifetime electrifying riding on the challenging corners of the Spanish circuit, which on the previous day saw Matteo Ferrari and Team Trentino Gresini MotoE lifting the first-ever FIM Enel MotoE World Cup title.
Among them a special guest: former two-time World Champion Marco Melandri got to grips for the first time with the Ego Corsa – and with any electric racing motorcycle – much to the delight of the experienced Italian rider. He was not alone, though: taking to the track it was also former 500cc race winner and currently MotoGP.com pit-lane reporter Simon Crafar, who had already tried last year’s demo lap bike by Energica in Qatar. After the track test, the talented Kiwi was visibly and eloquently impressed with the performance of Energica’s race machine.
But that is not all: the double-winner of the #ValenciaGP MotoE races, Eric Granado (Avintia Esponsorama) and Maria Herrera (OpenBank Angel Nieto Team), both confirmed for the upcoming season, showed up at the track to help the riders with their knowledge of taking the Ego Corsa to the limit.
