World’s first electric superbike.
The Energica EVA naked electric superbike has been unveiled at EICMA 2014 in Milan, Italy. The street fighter is closely related to the EGO which is touted as the first electric superbike.
Rather than removing the fairing and slapping a minimalistic headlamp like other instant naked bikes, EVA’s designers have given it an individualistic appeal by means of new fuel tank, side panels and tailpiece.
The headlamp cluster houses twin circular LED elements, an air intake and LED daytime running lights. Overall, the EVA is full of traditional super naked traits – sharp and aggressive.
The electric superbike’s powertrain has been lifted directly off the EGO. The liquid-cooled permanent magnet AC motor is good for 135 bhp from as low as 4,900 rpm and an astounding torque of 195 rpm spread through the entire rev range right from the word go.
A 11.7 kWh battery pack sends electricity, the Energica EVA Electric Superbike can be charged fully in 3.5 hours using a regular socket while 85% charge can be achieved in 30 minutes through a DC fast charge system. The maximum range is claimed to be 190 km if a constant speed of 60 km/h is maintained. The distance drops to 100 km at 100 km/h.
The tubular trellis fame is suspended by means of a front MARZOCCHI USD fork and rear monoshock, both fully adjustable. The Brembo brake system involving twin discs upfront and a single disc at the rear is supported by Bosch ABS.
The 17-inch wheels come shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres of size 120/70 ZR17 (front) and 180/55 ZR17 (rear).
