Energica is the first Italian manufacturer of high-performance electric motorcycles. Its close relationship with CRP Group will thus continue in this new era for two-wheeled motorsports. As a result, CRP Group’s technology will be supporting the development of the Ego Corsa.
CRP Group is a center of excellence for high-tech automotive manufacturing. For over 45 years the company worked for the F1 circuit through CRP Meccanica, CRP Group’s specialized division in precision CNC Machining. In addition, for over 20 years. the company has been pushing the limits of professional 3D printing field with its Windform family of reinforced materials, developed through CRP Technology.
The “Energica” project was born between 2008 and 2009 when the company created an all-electric racing bike called “eCRP”.
The design of this race bike required technical expertise and the experience and technologies inherited from the parent company, CRP Group, allowed to create a new concept of motorcycle racing. CRP Group’s know-how in F1 world and aerospace industries supported Energica into further developing electric technology and creating a line of premium street-legal electric motorcycles. The team raced for two years and then started working on a new project: Energica, the first high-performance electric motorcycle.
“The attitude towards innovation, the ability to evolve it and the “look beyond” disposition are our milestones. In a short time Energica has opened a new chapter in the history of Italian Motor Valley, creating a new field within the automotive market: the high-performance electric motorcycle segment”.
