For the uninitiated, all motorcycles on the grid of the FIM MotoE championship are supplied by Energica. The Italian firm made its debut last year to good response. Despite being hit by a tragedy in which all 18 bikes burned down at the MotoE paddock in Jerez in March 2019, the Italian firm rose to the occasion and made new bikes available within a very short period of time. 18 bikes were back on the Valencia track for testing followed by the inaugural race at Saschenring, Germany in July 2019.
Energica began operations with the Ego superbike followed by the Ego+. It subsequently added the Eva Ribelle, a menacing streetfighter to its lineup followed by the Eva EsseEsse9, a neo-retro electric bike based on the Eva Ribelle.
Giacomo Leone, Sales & Field Marketing Director at Energica, commented on the agreement, “Wheels of Arabia will contribute to affirming Energica’s presence in the UAE area. The UAE has an ambitious goal to boost its EV market in the next 20 years. The Government aims to boost its own EV use by 20% this year as well as roll out more than 40,000 EVs across the country by 2030.”
