Based in Italy’s so-called “Motor Valley,” Energica is a pioneering electric motorcycle company that was first founded in 2014. Thus far, the Modena marque has only produced full-faired and naked superbikes — including a retro-inspired naked model — though Energica is now branching out into the adventure bike sector with the debut of its all-new Experia Green Tourer.
Weighing in at 573lbs and boasting a 33.3” seat height, this sports-adventure-tourer is constructed around a tubular steel trellis frame with aluminum side plates and a cast aluminum swing-arm. Unveiled over the weekend at the MotoE World Cup race in Mugello, Italy, the Experia sports a beaked front-end design that retains Energica’s superbikes’ dual LED headlight arrangement and general design language. Alongside a fully-adjustable ZF Sachs suspension setup affording 150mm of travel front and back, the all-electric adventure bike also boasts an optional suite of hard luggage that affords a collective 112 liters of storage space and comes standard on the Launch Edition version of the Experia that’s being produced in limited numbers. Heated grips, Brembo brakes, cast aluminum wheels, a 5” TFT display, a lockable storage compartment, two USB ports, forward and reverse park assist, six-level traction control, Bosch 9.3 cornering ABS, seven profiles, four ride modes, and four regenerative braking modes all come as standard, too.
The Experia is powered by a water-cooled EMCE Permanent Magnet-Assisted Synchronous Reluctance Motor that’s 22lbs lighter than its predecessor’s and is paired with an all-new internal Rechargeable Energy Storage System that allows the ADV bike’s Lithium polymer to achieve a 0-80% recharge in only 40 minutes when using a Level 3/DC Fast charger — making it the fastest-charging electric motorcycle in existence. Compatible with all three levels of charging — a feat only offered on Energica motorcycles — the Experia affords a range of 261 miles in the city and 160 miles on the freeway. This 75kW (102hp) motor also produces a whopping 664ft-lbs of torque at the rear wheel and allows for a 3.5-second 0-60mph time and an electronically-limited top speed of 112mph.
Though pricing has yet to be revealed, the 2023 Energica Experia Green Tourer Adventure Motorcycle will be available for order beginning tomorrow, with deliveries scheduled to commence later this autumn. Energica will also be producing a range of accessories and upgrades for the Experia in the coming months.
