As a company, Energica has had quite a year in 2019 as it reaped the benefits of its exclusive involvement in the FIM MotoE world championship to the tune of a 57-percent increase in revenue growth between Q1 2018 and Q1 2019. This competition-based test bed has also led to the development of a new and improved 21.5 kWh lithium-polymer battery which is being hailed as the lightest, most long-lasting battery ever created for a production motorcycle. All three of the 2020 Energica Ego+, EsseEsse9+, and Eva Ribelle will be offered with the new 21.5 kWh battery or the previous-generation 13.4 kWh battery packs.
