It is nice to see a company announce an new electric motorcycle and then actually follow up with test rides and (hopefully) a production version that can actually be purchased by the public. I hope they can do a better job of distribution in the U.S. than some other Italian motorcycle companies have done in the past. :rolleyes:

Here is a Motorcycle.com article regarding the Energica Ego. No video, but more information about the bike: http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/2015-energica-ego-review-first-ride.html

Nice bike, but I still worry how Energica will do with setting up distribution, dealers, parts and service outside of Europe? Retail dealers willing to take on new electric motorcycles in the U.S. are going to be hard to find. Most motorcycle dealers are mom and pop operations and are reluctant to take on brands that they know nothing about or are not sure they will generate enough profit to make the effort worthwhile. :confused:
