Energica motorcycles are the ultimate expression of Italian exclusivity, masterfully manufactured in the Italian Motor Valley in Modena. Energica benefits in countless and immeasurable ways from the close relationship and consultation with parent company CRP Group. The overall culture that distinguishes CRP Group is fully integrated into Energica Motor Company. Diving in F1 world and aerospace industries keeps Energica at the forefront of state-of-the-art technology and ready for future innovation.
RESERVE YOUR ENERGICA
BOOK A TEST DRIVE
Energica motorcycles use a high-energy lithium polymer battery. Contained in sealed housing holding battery cells, the Battery Management System (BMS) has all the necessary provisions to ensure the safety of the vehicle. The battery pack is an intelligent device with its own electrical brain, comprising dozens of sensors and electromechanical devices that constitute a closed subsystem to ensure maximum vehicle performance and driver safety in all environmental conditions. Energica has designed a cooling system for the battery pack that is superior thanks to its specific ventilation paths that limit the stress of the batteries.
The green heart of Energica motorcycles is a synchronous oil-cooled motor with permanent magnets. The excitement of riding an electric motorcycle is more than just power. With no transmission gears, clutch, or shifting, the process of searching for the “right gear” and RPM is eliminated, allowing for full concentration on acceleration, full throttle control, cornering and braking. The technology is more intuitive and gives the feeling of torque to the motor instantly. Energica is taking electric performance to the next level!
VEHICLE CONTROL UNIT
The brain of Energica motorcycles is the sophisticated Vehicle Control Unit. Unlike other vehicles where the control units work separately on all controllers, the Energica’s battery, inverter, charger and ABS are constantly monitored and managed by a technological jewel: the VCU, completely designed and developed by Energica. The state-of-the-art VCU implements a multimap adaptive energy, and a power management. Algorithm manages the vehicle, carefully monitoring and adjusting the motor’s power according to the throttle thrust 100 times per second while riding.
Ride by Wire System
The ride-by-wire system is the direct interface between the driver and the vehicle. Knowing its importance, Energica paid special attention to the development and refinement of this device. The throttle control is composed of a rotary potentiometer and a safety microswitch. The potentiometer detects the rotation of the throttle and is activated every time the accelerator is engaged or released. The VCU manages both the potentiometer and the switch signal to fine-tune the torque demand to the engine based on the mapping selected, while the microswitch is used as a safety feature in case of malfunction of the throttle control.
Energica motorcycles have an Italian-style, tubular, craftsman-like trellis high strength steel frame. The steel frame provides a better feel than aluminum. For years technicians believed that aluminum-framed road race motorcycles provided more “drive” than their steel counterparts. However, research has discovered that the steel frames actually act similarly to a spring, absorbing some energy as they flex and releasing it again when they snap back to their original form.
