ITALIAN electric bike maker Energica has confirmed it will add a new model to its range in 2018, the Eva EsseEsse9, first revealed last year as a concept.
It’s based on the firm’s naked bike, called simply the Eva, but given scrambler-type styling – or about as close to it as you can get with a 108hp, 132.7lbft electric bike.
The concept (pictured) had a ribbed seat, dual-sport tyres and a racing number-style side panel.
It will be Energica’s third model, joining the Eva and fully-faired Ego, which makes 145hp and 147.5lbft.
Energica said the final version of the Eva EsseEsse9 would be unveiled at the Eicma motorcycle in Milan this November and arrive in Europe next year, taking the firm into a ‘new segment: the old school style motorcycle market’.
