Dorna Sports ed Energica Motor Company announce that the agreement defining the Italian company as the sole supplier for the MotoE World Cup will conclude at the end of the 2022 season.
Energica was the sole supplier of the MotoE since its start in 2019. The 2021 season will mark the final chapter of a four-year journey filled with competition, technological development and thrilling racing. Energica was a key part in making the MotoE an unrivaled showcase for both electric mobility and awesome racing on some of the world's most iconic circuits.
The Energica Ego Corsa proved to be fast, extremely reliable and well appreciated by the riders who took part in the MotoE, and no doubt will continue to amaze in the next season before the collaboration between Energica and Dorna ends. The work carried out both on the track and in the company's headquarters has created constant innovation and new solutions up to bringing the MotoE to the incredible level it is at today. Energica demonstrated an ability to react quickly to challenges and various technical requests in record time. The joint effort between all parties was the key to developing a competition that will now enter a new era, built on a foundation that all parties involved can be immensely proud to have built together.

Livia Cevolini - CEO Energica Motor Company
“We are extremely happy at Energica to have provided our invaluable contribution to make MotoE the success it is today. We’re confident that our initiative and efforts have generated plenty of interest from the big OEMs to follow the path we started a decade ago. Being pioneers of electric mobility on two wheels, we have opened up the way to a whole new strata of sustainable and exciting motorcycle racing and – as we have always done – we now aim at testing ourselves with new challenges. This is why we are looking forward to the next big thing to come! We would like to thank Dorna Sports for the great opportunity to showcase our technology and we are looking forward to wrapping up our journey together in style.”
Nicolas Goubert - Executive Director of MotoE World Cup
“The first three seasons of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup have delivered an incredible show despite all the unforeseen external challenges that have been thrown at us. It wasn’t an easy task to undertake and one very new in many aspects, but we did it and this was thanks to a joint effort between all parties involved. From the very beginning, Energica has brought its know-how to the track in a way we couldn’t be happier with, delivering a package that has proved to be extremely competitive, showing impressive maximum speed (exceeding 260km/h in Barcelona in 2021), and lap-times that on some occasion were in line with other classes – despite the much shorter history of electric motorcycles”.
“Maybe even more impressive than the on-track performance was the bike reliability, as none of the 18 riders ever encountered any mechanical failure during any of the races we enjoyed in the three seasons. Their ability to respond quickly and effectively to our requests and the ones coming from the riders and teams are proof of all the expertise and passion they brought to the series. All sides are committed to continuing giving their maximum effort into 2022, for what will be another spectacular year of racing. I would really like to thank Energica for the quality of their innovative products and their engagement in the MotoE series."
