Energica named as sole Moto-e supplier for 2019 | Manufacture News | News
MotoGP head honcho Carmelo Ezpeleta has named Italian firm Energica as the sole supplier for the 2019 Moto-e World Cup, which will form a support category at selected rounds of the 2019 MotoGP World Championship.
A race-spec version of its Ego roadbike will be used in next year’s series. It is claimed to produce 108kW and, while the potential top speed is not known, reports say the bikes will be limited to around 240km/h in a bid to last race distance.
“We believe in excellence, quality and performance and we cannot think of a better collaborator with whom to launch the FIM Moto-e World Cup,” Ezpeleta said.
A production Ego competed in the 2017 Zero TT at the Isle of Man in the hands of Adam Child. He finished seventh overall from eight entrants, including purpose-built prototypes, with an average speed of 78.848mph (127km/h).
