Experia, a Green Tourer, delivers on the company's vision of comfort and endurance, allowing riders to tap into their wanderlust by offering the longest range of any electric motorcycle on the market. Built from the ground up on a new platform with a new frame, steering, fairing and more, Experia offers an exciting riding experience no matter where your route takes you, with the thrills of a sportbike and the comfort of a traditional touring bike. Both the rider and the passenger will share an exhilarating riding experience without sacrificing supreme comfort.

Experia is the fourth all-electric motorcycle based on the company's Italian racing heritage in Energica's award-winning line-up. Experia is currently in manufacturing and is expected to be delivered to dealers in the U.S. by this fall. To counter the additional bulk and, therefore weight required to provide the comfort expected of any touring platform, Energica has utilized new technologies to lower the mass and weight of the heaviest components. Battery, motor and frame are all redesigned. A new aerodynamic fairing maximizes not only weather and wind protection but range.

The result is a Green Tourer: excellent rider and passenger comfort, the longest travel distance between charging sessions, and the shortest time to charge of all-electric motorcycles on the road today. The Experia battery boasts a new internal RESS (Rechargeable Energy Storage System) geometry, adding capacity while centralizing mass. This provides a lower center of gravity to give the vehicle superior low-speed handling while still enjoying the largest battery capacity of any electric motorcycle currently on the market, at 22.5 kWh maximum that can be charged from 0-80% in just 40 minutes at a Level 3/DC Fast Charger.

Riders also have the option to use Level 2 or 1 charging on the road or at home. These offerings confirm Energica as the only electric motorcycle manufacturer to offer riders all three levels of charging. No longer a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) primarily based on internal permanent magnets, but instead Synchronous Reluctance assisted by permanent magnets. The Energica Experia fairing provides excellent weather and wind protection while remaining stylish and unobtrusive.
