Nico Rosberg raffles off his 2018 Energica EGO in fight against Covid-19

Formula 1 World Champion and sustainability entrepreneur Nico Rosberg is giving away his 2018 Energica EGO electric supersport motorcycle to raise money for charities helping people in need by Covid-19 pandemic. Nico’s 2018 Energica EGO is custom-designed with many parts manufactured by CRP Technology using selective laser sintering process and Windform composite materials.

The motorcycle demonstrates that the union between a highly advanced 3D printing process (Selective Laser Sintering) and Windform TOP-LINE composite materials allows the creation of functional and performing components. The fundraising consists of an online raffle that was launched few days ago on the fundraising platform Vip Prize and runs until August 12, 2020.

“As Energica’s financial incubator and technological partner,” said Franco Cevolini, CTO and VP at CRP Technology, “we have been supporting the development of all the Energica models from the very beginning, especially the road-going EGO which shares common ground with the Nico’s custom designed 2018 Energica EGO electric sportbike. CRP Technology’s innovative, avant-garde solutions in the field of additive manufacturing technology have made Energica a unique model throughout the world. CRP’s know-how is present on Nico’s Ego as many parts of his custom electric sportbike were manufactured in Modena, Italy, by CRP Technology.”

Some of the parts manufactured by CRP Technology using laser sintering process and Windform composite materials are: chain sliders, front sprocket covers, bracket for ABS support, motor terminals cover, water pump supports, front and back headlights covers, external supports for turn signal.

The 2018 Energica Ego is a fully electric high-performance motorcycle with 107kW (145 hp) and 200Nm torque delivered by a Permanent Magnet AC power unit with a battery capacity of 13.4 kWh. With a top speed of 150mph (240kph) and an acceleration of 0-100kph in less than 3 seconds, it is one of the world’s most powerful and advanced electric motorcycles on the market.

Custom designed specifically for Nico, the 2018 Energica Ego includes several unique features, such as DC Fast charging, a matt black livery, just like Nico’s F1 helmet, aluminum forged wheels, carbon fibre custom fairings, a tech seat with red seams, OHLINS suspensions at front and back and Nico’s logo on the side.

Anyone entering the raffle has a chance to win Nico’s custom designed Energica Ego electric sportbike, which will be handed over by Nico Rosberg personally during a Meet & Greet in his hometown Monaco. The money raised through the raffle will be donated to two charities close to Nico’s heart: The German charity foundation “Stiftung RTL – Wir helfen Kindern e.V.” (for their partnering project “Nestwärme e.V.”) and the Italian Red Cross for the project “The Time of Kindness”.
