The impressive and luxurious Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I resort hotel in Barcelona was the venue chosen to host the first-ever MotoETM summit, which gathered together representatives from all the parties involved in this new, electrifying chapter of motorcycle racing history. The centre stage was taken, as expected, by the stunning Ego Corsa, the all-electric superbike built by Energica that will be ridden by some of the best riders the world of two-wheeled motorsport has to offer.
And from this stage, Energica’s CEO Livia Cevolini underlined the company’s commitment to electric excellence applied to both the road and track, with the excitement for the upcoming first edition of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup palpable in the convention room.
“We have always been marked as innovators” says Livia Cevolini “or even dreamers, as we have always paved new roads, finding new paths, looking beyond, even besides trends. […] We turned a vision into something completely new, a product that did not exist before. And we created it from a totally white sheet. Being the unique manufacturer for this project is actually the consecration of our product as a reference point in the world of high-performing motorcycling, and of course a confirmation of the great work done to date.”
The task or giving an in-depth look at Energica’s products was left to Energica’s CTO Giampiero Testoni, the mastermind behind all the projects developed by the Modena-based company since its creation in 2014.
“Our products come from a team of specialists who have been able to take the electric to another level: a 100% green vehicle completely homologated with racing performance. We have focused on high-end materials and designed innovative engineering solutions to guarantee our customers a premium line of electric motorcycles.”
The latest addition to this exciting range of vehicles is the MotoE-dedicated Ego Corsa, a bike with an environmental-friendly core but capable of superlative levels of performance.
Preparations for the 2019 FIM Enel MotoETM World Cup are proceeding at high pace, with Energica working closely alongside MotoE promoter Dorna, sponsors, teams and riders. Pre-season on-track action will resume in a month’s time at Jerez de la Frontera in Spain for the first test of 2019 (13-15 March).
