RIDE Highlights the Energica Ego

By Chewie, 3 years ago
The next video in the ongoing series showing off the many bikes in upcoming racing title RIDE focuses on the Energica Ego.

EGO is the first 100% electric Italian Superbike, the result of a perfect balance of technology, innovation and design The Energica Ego is a driving force in the emerging electric-powered supersport sector. It builds on the wealth of experience accumulated by the CRP Group in F1 and international motorsports. The incredible torque values are one of the bike's most striking aspects, allowing acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. The Energica Ego's oil-cooled Permanent Magnet AC (PMAC) synchronous electric motor delivers a torque of 195 Nm from 0 rpm to 4700 rpm, and 100 kW of power (around 136 hp). The top speed is electronically limited to 150 mph. The Energica Ego is the only electric bike in the world to integrate Bosch ABS, a full year ahead of the upcoming EU regulations for mandatory ABS. The package is completed with equipment in line with traditional supersport bikes, including Marzocchi and Öhlins suspension, Brembo brake system, and an exclusive regenerative engine braking system.
RIDE is due on Xbox 360 and Xbox One in Spring 2015. To see the other bikes highlighted so far, head here.
