Electric bikes are tricky. Putting the obvious issues like charging and range to the side, manufacturers tend to have trouble getting components like shifting and engine braking to carry over to the new platform. This is where Energica stands out. There, and by the sheer amount of power their bikes put out.
With adjustable levels of simulated engine braking, four ride modes, and no clutch/ shifter, this bike is easy and fun to ride. Certain aspects function like a 'normal' motorcycle and it doesn't feel as alien as some of the other electrics.
We had tons of fun riding these around today, they're really incredible bikes!
Stay tuned for a full review and enjoy this walkaround for now!
