Need For Speed – Energica EGO Superbike
Another addition to the World’s fastest bikes is the perfectly engineered Energica EGO superbike only built for speed. It is the world’s first all-electric superbike manufactured by Italian racing legend, The Energica EGO, with the claims of having a 100% Italian racing bloodlines of mass performance and 0% emissions!!
Designed, engineered and manufactured by hand in Modena Italy, this beauty is built by the same people who have mastered bike engineering ranging from Formula One Racing to Le Mans 24h for over 40 years. As a result the Engerica has advanced into a sustainable bike with top shelf performance.
According to its makers, it can reach upto 150 mph (240 km/h) top speed and can cover upto 120 miles with only a single charge, with a phase 4 DC charge to 85% in just 30 minutes, run on an all electric motor which produces an astonishing 195 Nm torque from 0 RPM to redline, and a 0 – 100 time of under 3 seconds.
The incorporation of 3D printed mirrors, side covers, instrument support and nose fairing, the EGO only gets and edge with the latest technology input.
The usage of these Windform 3D printing powders, give the Energica EGO components a widespread range of tensile strength and elasticity contingent to each components application. The structure for the support of the dashboard, rear mirrors and front fairing is made from Windform SP which is a polyamide-based material reinforced with carbon fiber, making each component more elastic along with maximum mechanical strength. This polyamide is especially used under high stress settings where shock presents the risk of breakage; the elastic nature further help reduce the mechanical stress.
Everything close to perfection, the only flaw seen by the bikers is that it won’t be released until 2015- ah a long wait for a beauty like this! Further information about EGO can be found on their website below, don’t forget to also checkout the video link to experience this racing machine.
