SPY SHOTS: Energica’s next generation ELECTRIC superbikes caught TESTING on the road. New battery tech for 2020.


Energica’s electric superbikes have been caught on camera while out testing in Italy. And it looks like we’re going to see new version of the Italian factories Ego and Eva EsseEsse9 for 2020.

First reported by Italian biker site Moto.It, the new bikes were spotted by an eagle eyed snapper near Verona, Italy – which is around an hour from Energica’s Modena HQ. Admittedly, the bikes don’t look dramatically different to the current models, but there are a handful of small changes to help them stand out.

The big news is the bikes new battery and motor housings. No more aluminium covers – instead, Energica seem to have gone for something a bit more lightweight. It’s not that different to the battery pack changes we saw on the MotoE Energica Ego Corsa race bikes – which helped to create a pretty substantial weight reduction for the race bike over its road going siblings. And that (probably) means the Energica lineup is gearing up for a battery upgrade for 2020. Aside from that, expect the Energica lineup to remain much the same.

No official news from the factory just yet – but with the big bike shows fast approaching, chances are we won’t have to wait too much longer to see them in the flesh.
