Sustainability and motorcycling are the milestones on which Energica have built their mission, while quickly becoming one of the benchmarks of electric motorcycling globally.
The single manufacturer role in the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, which the Modena-based company will cover until 2021, is opening a new range of opportunities for very interesting collaborations with ‘green mobility’ as a common denominator – and partners of known excellence.
It is in fact thanks to Gresini Racing and their main sponsor in MotoE, Trentino, that Energica will make available two high-performing electric motorcycles – one old-style and a superbike – for the Tour of the Alps, a professional cycling competition that has been of extreme importance throughout the years for the stars of the sport as a build up to the Giro d’Italia.
In the fourth stage of the Tour of the Alps – which is contested between Trentino’s towns of Baselga di Piné and Cles (134 Km), a stunning Eva EsseEsse9 will be used by the technical team of the series as a support bike – specifically to notify the athletes with the gaps between each group.
Eva EsseEsse9 is the third model of the Italian manufacturer, an electric bike with old-style inspiration, which gets its name by the famous Via Emilia, also known as Strada Statale 9, which is the historical road crossing the Italian Motor Valley. At this event, there will also be the Team Trentino Gresini-liveried Ego supersport bike, which will be displayed at the village at the start in Baselga di Pinè and will lead the entourage while transiting though the start of the stage.
This initiative, which starts from leading institutions in the world of two-wheeled sport, mobility and sustainable tourism, will be the first of many to involve Energica, Gresini and Trentino.
“Trentino is a beloved territory for Energica as it’s one of the areas of Italy that is mostly involved into environmental sustainability – as well as being one of the most beloved by motorcyclists,” says Energica Motor Company’s CEO Livia Cevolini.
“Our great effort into the development of an ecosystem that can promote and develop sustainable mobility is now joined by two partners of absolute excellence like Trentino and Team Gresini. We are proud to become part of such a relevant event in world professional cycling, while waiting to see the debut of Matteo Ferrari and Lorenzo Savadori in MotoE’s opening race at the Sachsenring.”
