21 Nov Electric superbike maker Energica shows new concept
ELECTRIC superbike maker Energica has revealed this new concept, a machine it says ‘approaches the old-school branch of motorcycles’.
It’s called the EsseEsse9, after an Italian road, the Via Emilia, or SS9.
According to Energica designer Paolo Iemmi the dual-sport tyres are “inspired by the irregular blocks of stones of this route”.
Energica Chief Technology Officer Giampiero Testoni said: “With this new project we wanted to present a prototype completely different. We decided to discover our bike, revealing what we have always hidden, the technical components.”
The EsseEsse9 was revealed at the Eicma motorcycle show in Milan.
