MODENA – Energica Motor Company S.p.A., a subsidiary of Ideanomics and a pioneering Italian manufacturer and distributor of high-performance, 100% battery-powered, highly stylized electric motorcycles, today announced the launch of its newest electric motorcycle in the company’s line-up, the Energica Experia. Experia, a Green Tourer, delivers on the company’s vision of comfort and endurance and is the most nimble and maneuverable machine Energica has ever made, allowing riders to tap into their wanderlust by offering the longest range of any electric motorcycle on the market.
Built from the ground up on a new platform with a new frame, steering, fairing and more, Experia offers an exciting riding experience no matter where your route takes you, with the thrills of a sportbike and the comfort of a traditional touring bike. Both the rider and the passenger will share an exhilarating riding experience without sacrificing supreme comfort. Experia is the fourth all-electric motorcycle based on the company’s Italian racing heritage in Energica’s award-winning line-up. Experia is currently in manufacturing and is expected to be delivered to dealers in the U.S. by this fall.
Energica: Italian Heritage and Innovative Product Line of Electric Motorcycles
With more than 10 years of experience in the electric motorcycle industry, Energica’s technical team has proven experience creating racing-quality motorcycles with no emissions. Energica’s no-emission EV technology combined with the pedigree of high-performance mobility synonymous with Italy’s Motor Valley delivers a range of exceptional products for the high-performance motorcycle market. In addition, Energica has developed a proprietary EV battery and DC fast charging in-house. Energica has spent 10 years developing its electric motorcycle powertrains, with much of the advanced technology developed in part due to Energica’s presence on the race track.
Experia’s New High-Tech Platform
Experia now brings Energica’s innovative spirit into an entirely new segment of riding. To counter the additional bulk and, therefore weight required to provide the comfort expected of any touring platform, Energica has utilized new technologies to lower the mass and weight of the heaviest components. Battery, motor and frame are all redesigned. A new aerodynamic fairing maximizes not only weather and wind protection but range. The result is a Green Tourer: excellent rider and passenger comfort, the longest travel distance between charging sessions, and the shortest time to charge of all-electric motorcycles on the road today.
Largest Battery with Fastest Charging – RESS
The Experia battery boasts a new internal RESS (Rechargeable Energy Storage System) geometry, adding capacity while centralizing mass. This provides a lower center of gravity to give the vehicle superior low-speed handling while still enjoying the largest battery capacity of any electric motorcycle currently on the market, at 22.5 kWh maximum that can be charged from 0-80% in just 40 minutes at a Level 3/DC Fast Charger. Riders also have the option to use Level 2 or 1 charging on the road or at home. These offerings confirm Energica as the only electric motorcycle manufacturer to offer riders all three levels of charging.
EMCE Permanent Magnet Assisted Synchronous Reluctance Motor
No longer a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) primarily based on internal permanent magnets, but instead Synchronous Reluctance assisted by permanent magnets. It is smaller and 10 kg. (22 lbs.) lighter than the Energica’s EMCE motor of the other models, without any loss of performance thanks to even greater thermal efficiency. Water-cooled and oil-lubricated, it is lower in the chassis, improving handling at all speeds.
“We have focused on the real-world needs of motorcycle riders worldwide, creating an ex-novo state-of-the-art engineering platform,” said Giampiero Testoni, CTO of Energica Motor Company. “We melded high-tech electric mobility with the roaming spirit of the motorcycle traveler. The intention was to create the first electric motorcycle created specifically for long-distance bike lovers. “
“It is Energica’s intention to spread these technological innovations across a family of other electric motorcycles and additionally incorporate elements of these in Energica Inside, the recently launched business unit of Energica Motor Company S.p.A. dedicated to the development and production of powertrains, batteries and technology across numerous disciplines and applications.” Satisfy your long-distance wanderlust
The Energica Experia fairing provides excellent weather and wind protection while remaining stylish and unobtrusive. New voluminous hard side panniers and a top case with a total capacity of 112 liters will be included in the Launch Edition, designed for long-distance travel. The Launch Edition will also include bar ends and bolts in black ergal, heated handgrips and aluminum rims with red details.
Experia has two USP ports on the dash and two more in a waterproof large and lockable storage compartment. The accessories list will gradually grow and cover all the needs of all customers.
