2015 Energica Ego Video Review
We get to ride the prototype for Italys first electric sportbike
The Energica Ego is a strong attempt to take the electric sportbike to the next level, brought to you by an Italian company with tight ties to the exotic world of Formula 1 car racing. We recently posted our review of the electrified Ego, but we were unable to cut a video in time to run with it.
But now, thanks to some smart editing from our buddy Sean Matic and video clips from Energica, you can now see and hear the prototype Ego in action in the hills of Tuscany. The Ego proved to be an exciting ride. Energica claims a zero-60-mph time of just 3.2 seconds, plus a top speed around 140 mph. Take a look at the video below to see what it was like to ride, and enjoy the audio of the science-fictiony e-bike in action.
