Electric Motorcycle News

At EICMA 2011, the famed TTXGP competitor CRP Racing unveiled its first electric streetbike prototype – Energica. This is a project of international importance, in which CRP, in addition to studying in detail the characteristics of this new electric streetbike, has used the experience gained race after race on the track.

The key word is Evolution. CRP’s challenge is to deliver green technology with its innovation, not only on the track, but also on the street.

CRP’s know-how is the result of 40 years of experience working alongside some of the best international motorsport teams.

Energica, CRP Racing’s first concept of an electric streetbike, was designed with Italian style in mind, with a strong racing personality characterised by its racing DNA and state of the art green technology.

With Energica, the electric bike is no longer just an example of alternative sustainable mobility, but has become a true model of high technology and design on two wheels, capable of giving you the same unique sensations as the traditional models.

The CRP Energica project is underway thanks to the experience that CRP has gained race after race at the FIM e-Power and TTXGP electric motorcycle championships.

After having travelled for two years throughout Europe and America, taking the eCRP, one of the best electric racing vehicles, to the track, the CRP staff have perfected every single detail in order to design a unique electric streetbike specimen, which today is a viable alternative to the next-generation endothermic motorbikes.
