Energica Eva is a ‘naked’ electric superbike for the street

If you liked the basic concept behind CRP Racing’s Energica electric superbike (now the Energica Ego) but wanted something that was more stripped down, you’ve just met your dream machine. The company has unveiled the Energica Eva, a “naked” streetfighter counterpart to the Ego. You’ll still find a high-powered 136HP motor (good for 149MPH) and a 95-mile battery (with a 3.5-hour full recharge), but much of the design has been pared down and shortened for urban riding. You’ll see more of that electric powerplant, while the handlebars, pegs and wheels should be more city-friendly. As for a launch date and price? CRP isn’t ready to hand those out yet, but it was previously aiming for a price between $25,000 to $28,000 — you’ll have to really want a fast, environmentally conscious two-wheeler for the Eva to make sense.
