Why does a manufacturer of electric motorcycles (Energica Motor Company) sign a technical partnership agreement with a manufacturer of air filters (Sprint Filter)? For any internal combustion engine, the filter is essential for combustion air, but why have air filters on the Ego Corsa for the MotoE World Cup? On the 2019 version of MotoE an air filter would have been useless but on some bikes participating in the pre-season tests at the Jerez de la Frontera track, having an air filter is essential.
With a view to continuously improving the bikes supplied for the MotoE World Cup, Energica has introduced the use of air filters to achieve a better cooling of the battery pack on the Ego Corsa. The Sprint Filter PXNUMX air filters will improve the temperature management during the recharging process especially during free practice days with three close sessions. The filters are positioned next to the battery pack, as shown in this image.
The special kit consists of six air filters in P037, a unique waterproof material patented by Sprint Filter. This element ensures constant air flow and filtration level over time. Here the statements of Giampiero Testoni, Technical Director of Energica, and Fabrizio Marcucci, Marketing & Sales Director of Sprint Filter.

The first edition of the series has been a success and now we’re ready for a second, exciting season."
Fabrizio Marcucci (Marketing & Sales Director of Sprint Filter)
