Green touring with electric thrill
Imagine embarking on a journey where the horizon never ends, each vista seamlessly fading into the next, the air charged with exhilaration and the sweet, intoxicating scent of freedom. No guilt, no remorse, no looking back – just you, your steed, and the ever-changing landscape that's rendered all the more vibrant, all the more real, thanks to the low hum of the Energica Experia beneath you.
This isn't just any motorcycle – it's a symbol, a statement, a vision realized. Born to be wind, the Experia is an electric Green Tourer motorcycle that harnesses the power of nature, offering a no-emission journey towards the unknown. Ten years of racing, design, and manufacturing expertise have culminated in a machine that's eco-conscious, yet unapologetically powerful.
What strikes you about the Experia isn't just its zero-emission commitment, but its exhilarating performance. With a brand new motor and battery, the nimble machine confidently flaunts an impressive 60kW/80Hp at 7000 rpm, peaking at 75kW/100Hp at 7500 rpm. The redesigned PMASynRM motor is lighter, strategically positioned lower for improved rideability, and cranks out torque like a dream – 115 Nm / 85 ft lb. to be precise.
As for the battery, let's just say that it isn't your run-of-the-mill power source. In fact, it's the largest in its class – 22.5 kWh maximum and 19.6 kWh nominal. This increased capacity doesn't mean excess weight. Instead, it's lighter with a different mass distribution, making the Experia a true pleasure to command across varied terrains.
The journey is made even more comfortable with voluminous hard side panniers and a top case, collectively offering 112 liters of storage. So pack in your gloves, your rain suit, your charging cables, and let nothing hold you back.
Apart from its electric prowess, the Experia is also a technological marvel. It offers seven riding profiles, four riding modes (Eco, Urban, Rain, Sport), and four regenerative modes. The 5″ IPS high-resolution color display is an interactive dashboard that keeps you updated with critical metrics in real-time. A dual Microcontroller ARM-based VCU constantly monitors the battery, even when the key is off. What's more, a Cruise Control system is in place for maintaining speed and enhancing braking energy. Safety, as they say, is never an afterthought.
Now, let's get to the aesthetics. The Experia stands tall with a height of 57.5″, flaunting its silhouette in Metal Black, Flame White, or Bormio Ice. With a comfortable seat height of 33.3″, it's a bike that promises a thrilling yet secure ride. From the cast aluminum wheels shod with Pirelli Scorpion Trail II to the robust front steel tubular trellis, every inch of this Green Tourer oozes class and confidence.
And finally, the price. Starting at $23,750, it's a ticket to a future where travel is environmentally friendly yet uncompromising on performance and style. A two-year vehicle warranty and a three-year/31,000 miles warranty on the battery seal the deal, making the Energica Experia a machine that's purpose-built for the adventurer, the environmentalist, and the thrill-seeker.
So, let's gear up, mount this beauty, and chase the horizon. After all, at the end of one horizon is another, waiting to be discovered, experienced, and cherished.
