Energica EsseEsse9 is an all electric motorcycle, that sticks to old school traditions and design.

Energica names the Eva EsseEsse9 with inspiration from the real name of Via Emilia, historic road that crosses the Italian Motor Valley. Via Emilia was built by the Roman consul Marco Emilio Lepido in 187 BC, and is one of the oldest Italian roads. That gives you an grasp of how far Italian motorcycle manufacturers take their traditions, since the EsseEsse9 isn’t a catchy and easy to say name. We found it to be an important characteristic for this electric bike, the complex name just make it the badass, old school bike that it is.

Energica keeps hitting right on the spot with their designs. Empowering the recent Moto E @Misano world circuit (where all riders drove an Energica Ego fast charging model), Energica keeps providing excellent engineering and competitive models. With presence in the US as well as Europe.

Now let’s talk about the EsseEsse9, this old school electric beast has all you would expect from a sportbike, wrapped into a design of an old school standard/ classic model. It has partially exposed chassis, with fairings having a great forward shape making this bike look more aggressive. As with all Energica models, the EsseEsse9 lacks nothing in technical specification, and basically has similar components to the Eva Ribelle.

The EsseEsse9 runs on 21.5kWh of battery pack, but that’s not the only place it has big number. The motor runs 107kw, that’s an equivalent of 145 Horse power. Yes, it’s got power to give and just like the Eva Ribelle, this beast pushes from 0-60 in an estimated 3 seconds. We might not be spot on with that, but we would still feel confident to say that it won’t exceed 3 seconds by much if tested.

Beyond the sheer speed on the EsseEsse 9, Energica also has a great range of operation for their battery capacity. The bike can run 250 miles on a charge, that’s a whopping 400 km. And of course it have fast charging that can get you filled back up and ready to go in only 40 minutes (80% charged with DC fast charge). Ranges for a combined ride will reach about 230 km, if you go extra urban on highway and pushing it further on the throttle, it will reduce to 180 km. But still keeping a range of 400 km for city rides.

Energica really created the right model for cruising and speed riding in one bike. The EsseEsse 9 is a great Italian design, that enables riders to go long, fast and strong on a bike that looks absolutely classic, elegant, and ready to launch at high speeds. They offer additional features like added hardbox cases, and of course their standard App with a ton of useful rider info and details on the bike’s condition and battery life. All the technology you would expect from electric motorcycles are packed beautifully when it comes to Energica models.
