“Energica”, an all – electric sports bike, by the Italian manufacturer CRP Racing, has been unveiled at the EICMA 2011 motorcycle show in Italy. This bike is a complete transformation from the view point of race bike to a “street bike”. This is the first step taken towards the “green” concept to develop an electric consumer transport alternative. CRP aims to develop the green technology not only on the racing tracks but also on the streets.

Apparently, they're taking pre-orders for this puppy to be sold "in 2013". The preorder reservation deposit was reduced from 1500GBP to 500GBP (about 768USD). The final price is in the 15000 GBP ($22K) range.

It's not too surprising to note that although their race bike had dual Agnis, the street bike is going to have a single PMAC motor.

Apologies for thread necromancy, but this seems the best place to put this.

eCRP pushes back the release of the Energia to 2015 to incorporate ABS.

At least that's how I read it. 2015 is a long way away.

to incorporate ABS.

Maybe ABS now stands for "A lot more BS"?

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Hi everybody

First of all we would like to thank you for your interest in our bike. We’re working hard to make something unique, something that doesn’t even exist in the world of electric production two wheeled, and also that no one is even dreaming on. That’s why development time is different in comparison to other projects that are already on the market. We follow you and we’re of course very interested in your opinion as well as we’re well informed about our market.
Finally, in the end of 2012 the EU have voted in favor of mandatory ABS for new motorcycles over 125cc from 2016. About that, customer care as well as safety are very important CRP assets which are essential in high-performing vehicles like Energica.
Thus, the CRP-Energica development team, has decided to integrate the ABS system since the first release.
CRP’s staff has established to make this considerable but necessary effort in order to reach the goals of the Group but above all to present at the customer a 100% state-of-the-art product. The ABS system will be an added value because the customer has no longer to wait for 2016, when the system will be mandatory for all two-wheeled vehicles. CRP Group, as other high-performing motorcycles manufacturers, goes along with customer wishes investing on this development.
The ABS system development provides, as always, a timeline of 12 months with a relevant partner; therefore Energica will be available on the market on 2015.

The ABS system development has this timing, if you know someone who can do it in less time please let us know.
We’re sorry to read sentences like “more vapor”, and “A lot more BS”, we’re a group with the experience of over 40 years and that has always stood out for its know-how and its customer care and attention. Our team has always adopted a production policy related to the quality and reliability of all its projects, and its members are all high skilled technicians, most of all are well-known names in engineering field.
What I mean is that behind Energica project there are people, young and high-skilled engineers, because our group decides to invest in people and ideas that can make a change, trying to train and educate more and more people about the next gen technology, making everyone understand that we can all have still great fun even with a pure electric superbike, no compromise needed. Energica is something really new and in tune with our planet and its needs, still combining performance and racing technology.
We would like people to understand our effort to reach the customer care goals of the group, and have then so much effort from all our engineers and suppliers to be recognized.
Meanwhile thank you again for your time and your opinions, it’s really important for us.

Energica Team

Thanks! For a couple of things. Thanks for clearing up the timeline questions, I was a wee bit confused on if the ABS was setting the whole release back, or if it was a different model. Wishful thinking influencing my comprehension skills I guess... :D

Thanks also for joining us, and hope you come back soon! Finally, thanks for very clearly identifying who you are and what your purpose is, by using the name PR Energica. Now we know where, exactly, the information is coming from.

I, for one, am really excited to see the bike when it finally is released...

Speaking of ABS, Scot Hardin of Zero was quoted recently as saying that they would have to install ABS on their 2015 models due to government regulations and that the development costs would be in excess of $650,000. So it would appear that just bolting on an off-the-shelf ABS system is not as simple as we might think.
