The MotoE bike
The EgoCorsa is the race version of the Ego model produced by Energica Motor Company. The motorbike was born as a road sport bike to then grow and become a real racing bike. Piece by piece Giampiero Testoni (technical director of Energica) and Alessandro Brannetti (tester) developed the Energica Ego until it becomes the MotoE, the motorcycle for the world championship. During the 2018 Brannetti carried out simulations and tests on various circuits of the world championship: Assen, Misano, Barcelona and others, for a total of 4000km. From then on the development also passed through the pre-season tests with the official pilots, reaching over 13000km at the start of the first race in 2019 at Sachsenring.
In the technical section, the information currently available on the performance of the motorcycle and its components are shown.
On the MotoE, the combustion engine is replaced by a permanent magnet electric motor (PMAC - Permanent Magnet AC Motor), but this is not the only difference with a traditional motorcycle. The tank, the fuel system and the exhaust are not needed and in their place we find the lithium battery and the group called "power electronics" which transforms the direct current of the battery into alternating current for the motor.
At the same tim, on the MotoE these components are not installed: the gearbox, the clutch and the traditional lubrication system.
In the Technical section, you can find the basis of an electric motorcycle and various highlights on motor, battery and safety.
