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 riders, reaching over 13000km at the start of the first race in 2019 at Sachsenring.

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 "power train" group which transforms the direct current of the battery into alternating current for the motor.
Likewise on the MotoE are not needed: the gearbox, the clutch and the lubrication oil circuit.
