CRP Racing is a small Italian manufacturer that started life as a racing team of high performance parts maker CRP Technology in 2006, and then became an independent electric motorcycle manufacturer in 2010.
This year they showed up at the 2011 EICMA to introduce “the first electric streetbike with racing DNA”: the Energica.
This ambitious project is surely one of the most interesting things we have seen this year at the Milan event, and we are sure that many people in the industry are paying attention to its development.
Making the most its racing experience over the years, CRP Racing has come up with this 100% electric motorcycle equipped with a permanent magnet PMAC synchronous engine – delivering 134 hp and 157 Nm of peak torque – that provides the bike with a top speed of 220km/h (137 mph) and 150 km of range.
Its braking system, courtesy of Brembo, features double caliper radial and 310 mm floating discs on the front and rear single fixed caliper mated to a 220 mm disc on the rear.
Other remarkable features of the Electrica include 17″ OZ forged aluminum wheels, Marzocchi or Ohlins fork, Matris or Ohlins monoshock and an innovative 100% LED lights set.
