Two blokes and an Energica Ego have managed to cover 1,260 km in 24 hours – proving that it is possible to tour with an electric vehicle. And the Energica Ego has entered the Guinness World Record books, as the electric bike capable of covering the greatest number of kilometers in a single day.
Strickler and Berthound said: “It was a great experience and we had fun. The network of charging stations is growing everywhere and we have not had any problems with this. However, we have been slowed down by the electricity payment system through the App: not all managers accept the same platform and this saves valuable time in downloading and registering for the service. For these 1,260 kilometers, the Ego has used 126 kWh of energy, which corresponds to 12 litres of gasoline. A small car would need 60 litres of gasoline to travel the same distance. We would have gone further if we had not found a traffic jam on the German motorway, but we are really satisfied. Riding on the Ego for so long is not bad, it is comfortable even over long distances “.
