Loyal readers will remember that we already tipped you off to the folks at Energica debuting at EIMCA a naked version of the Energica Ego electric superbike, and here is your first glimpse at what the Italians are calling the Energica Eva.
The Eva will share the same 136hp / 143 lbs•ft PMAC motor and 11.7 kWh battery pack as the Ego, though with a more upright and relaxed seating position.
As can be seen, the Eva is without fairings and sports a tall handlebar setup. The Ego’s projector headlights remain, though perhaps in a more palatable housing than on the Ego.
Energica is still testing the Eva platform, but range is expected to be improved over the Ego, likely because of different throttle maps. No word on price yet, though we imagine the Energica Eva will be close to the Ego’s $35,000 MSRP.
We were pretty impressed with the small Italian company’s efforts when we rode the Energica Evo earlier this year, as the machine showed refined technology and clever details. We would expect the same from the Eva electric streetfighter, though a diet from its 570 lbs bulk would be welcomed.
