The Energica Ego was first introduced to us back in 2011, and since then EV advocates have lusted after the Italian electric superbike. American fans will finally get their chance to see and drive the Energica Ego as the electric motorcycle comes stateside with the “Where is my Ego?” tour.
After touring around Germany, Energica will come to San Francisco on July 18th, followed by Los Angeles on the 20th, before crossing to the East Coast to land in New York City on the 30th. Prospective customers and interested parties can see and ride the Ego for themselves, giving the 134 horsepower, $25,000 Italian electric rocket a spin.
In less than 3 seconds, the 3D printed electric superbike can go from 0 to 62 MPH, and it has an estimated driving range of 93 miles per charge, at speeds of up to 150 MPH…though you’ll wear out the battery in just a few minutes of top speed driving.
When you’re ready to recharge, prepare to wait up to 3.5 hours for a full charge This is a taste of the future of electric motorcycles, and Energica is sure to find buyers on both coasts during its aptly-named tour.
