Energica Eva

https://www.cycleworld.com/2016/01/0...specifications
Quote:
From the swoopily faired Ego superbike Energica has now derived a naked roadster called the Eva. The chassis is exactly the same, with a Marzocchi 43mm inverted fork, steel-trellis frame, and heavily triangulated cast-aluminum swingarm with Bitubo shock positioned far forward on the right side. Geometry is state-of-the-art with 24 degrees of rake, 100mm of trail and a 57.7-inch wheelbase. Wheels are the customary 17-inch shod with 120/70 front and 180/55 rear Pirelli Diablo Rosso II radials. The braking system include twin 330mm front rotors with radial-mount four-piston calipers and a 240mm rear rotor with two-piston caliper.

Weight has not been disclosed, but without a fairing the Eva is presumably fractionally lighter than the Ego, which weighs 569 lbs. But the most relevant difference is power, as the Eva has been detuned to produce 75kW/101 hp and 125 lb.-ft. of torque. Power is supplied by an 11.7kW/h lithium-ion/polymer battery pack. Recharging time plugging into a 110-Volt AC outlet takes 8 hours. Where 60A/330V DC recharging stations are available, recharging time is slashed to 30 minutes.
Without a fairing? That's a lot of plastic for a "naked" bike.
The 30 minute DC fast charge is interesting... but where to find 300 V 60 A DC service?

I like it, an electric Speed Triple! But it makes the ST seem like a lightweight, which takes some doing. That last pic seems odd though, the spoked wheels on a futuristic electric bike seem out of place?

Is there a drool icon? Me likey! I am normally not a fan of this style and such, but I am very interested in electric bikes and I want to see some more sporty types. But overall it is a nice looking bike and I would assume a blast to ride.

Modern standard looks with hyperbike specs. The fully faired Ego is even more impressive with 134 HP and 144 lb-ft. I'd love to see that thing on the track against a ZX-14R and Hayabusa.

For comparison, a 2012 ZX-14R makes 192 HP and 113 lb-ft of Toque and weighs 582 lb with a full tank.
2016 ZX-10R makes 167 HP and 76 lb-ft of Torque and weighs 454 lb.
2015 1299 Panigale makes 177 HP and weighs 428 lbs.
2016 Speed Triple makes 122 HP and 76 lb-ft and weighs 423 lb.

The 2018 ZX-10R costs $15,099. The 2018 ZX-14R costs $15,499. The Panigale 1299 costs $19,999... the Eva is around $25,000

I think the flip-up seat charging port is cool. The "engine" (motor) looks badass on it's own too. I'm curious what their batteries look like under all that plastic.


It's nice to see an electric bike with big specs available to the public... however small that public is right now. The Brammo and Zero aren't very impressive.

Oh really?! Check out a Zero SR smoke an H2 Kaw multiple times (jump to 17:40 for races).

Yes, have you seen the world's fastest car he just showed? It will even smoke electric bikes! 0-60 in 1.9 sec!

I think that beats about all other production cars by about a second.

124 miles to then wait 8 hours to recharge? No thanks.
At least with the crappy range on my Hypermotard I can add more gas and get home.

At work, so I only watched about thirty seconds with the sound off. Looks to me like the H2 figured out it would be a bad idea to do 200 mph in a residential area. And he was none too smooth on shifting.

When economies of scale kick in, electric cars and bikes should, in any sane universe, be cheaper than IC versions by, like, a lot. For one thing they're a metric assload simpler; it's like taking a bike with an insanely overspecified starter motor, and then throwing away the engine, fuel, ignition and exhaust systems. Also the gearbox, though personally the coolest homebrew electric car conversion I've seen used a series-wound motor for low RPMs and kept the gearbox because hey, who doesn't like shifting? The battery is responsible for most of the weight and a ton of the cost; but battery technology just keeps getting better year over year.

i drive an electric car. the shiftless acceleration is a hoot. and it is quicker than most cars off the line because no clutch or shifting and instant, flat torque. but i dont race it around because acceleration eats up the 'trons. a few fast launches and you can't make it home.

However, if they put a second motor in the rear and made it an AWD no gas/air car would touch it.

EV's are gonna rock once they get mature.

I think we are going to run into an EV/Uber wall though since both techs seem to be converging.

so, when we get cool/useful electrics we are at the same time gonna get robocars and so we might not be driving the cool EV's at all.

that's actually a good idea, given the trajectory of driver distraction and give-a-shit.

That electric bike looks a torture rack ,from the sloped paper thin seat, driving the jewels into the tank to the foot pegs set high enough for a midget.way to much plastic and heavy. Electric technology is years away from a viable electric vehicle, interesting concept. Maybe a good idea for a short range cheap scooter for city use, 25k EUR forget it.

I was minding my own business slowly riding Olympic View Drive in Lynwood on my Ducati Diavel, when a Zero totally smoked my ass from a traffic light. Total respect.

Personally, I get a fuzzy-wuzzy feeling from the engine/exhaust sound both on Ducati and Triumph, so not sure how to feel about electric motorcycles yet... Electric bicycles, on the other hand, are awesome.

Cannot wait. Will make my motorcycle adventures much safer!
