CRP Group is Energica’s technology partner for developing electric sportbike

March 1, 2018
Energica Motor Company has partnered with CRP Group in developing the Ego Corsa electric sportbike using laser additive manufacturing.

MODENA, ITALY – Ego Corsa, the Energica Motor Company’s electric sportbike for the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup (FIGURE), will be developed through CRP Group’s laser additive manufacturing experience. Livia Cevolini, CEO of Energica and marketing director of the CRP Group, has introduced the Ego Corsa, which is the tuned version of the Ego.

Energica Motor Company has partnered with CRP Group in developing the Ego Corsa electric sportbike using laser additive manufacturing.

The relationship between Energica and the CRP Group will be continued at full capacity, even in this new era of two-wheeled motorsports. CRP’s subtractive and additive manufacturing will be supporting the development of the Ego Corsa.

The Energica project was born between 2008 and 2009 when the company created an all-electric racing bike called eCRP. The company required technical expertise, and the experience and technologies inherited from parent company CRP Group allowed it to create a new concept of motorcycle racing. CRP Group’s experience in the Formula 1 and aerospace industries supported Energica into further developing electric technology and creating a line of premium street-legal electric motorcycles. The team raced for two years and then started working on the first high-performance electric motorcycle.

Energica’s motorcycle range includes three models, among them the tuned Ego Corsa sportbike. This model, which will have many similarities with the production bike from which it is derived, will be used by teams that will race the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup. The CRP Group team will be involved in many phases of Ego Corsa development.

The Energica R&D team is already committed to this bike, working on drivability on the track and then on track specifications. A testing demo program will be held during the 2018 MotoGP World Championship.
