The Experia claims a combined range of 256 kilometers on a single charge, making it the first fully electric ADV tourer from an electric OEM.
Adventure bikes and electric two-wheelers are two segments of the two-wheeler industry that are currently gaining popularity. Energica, an Italian company, has now unveiled the Experia, an all-electric adventure touring bike.
101hp (peak) and 115Nm aren’t insignificant by any standard. However, when compared to Energica’s previous models, the Ego superbike, the Eva Ribelle streetfighter, and the EsseEsse9 roadster, which had anywhere from 109hp to 171hp and 201Nm to 216Nm, it is noticeably less powerful.
Focus on Range at Energica Experia
The EMCE PMASRM (Energica Marvel Co-Engineering Permanent Magnet Assisted Synchronous Reluctance Motor) is a brand-new motor that powers the Experia. This motor is 10kg lighter than the previous EMCE motor generation. It’s small, allowing it to fit into tighter spaces while also improving thermal efficiency.
The lithium polymer battery that powers this new motor, according to Energica, provides greater power density while also contributing to mass centralization. The battery capacity is 22.5kWh (maximum) and 19.6kWh (minimum) (nominal). When a 24kW DC fast charger is used, charging times are drastically reduced, with the battery reaching 80 percent in as little as 40 minutes. There are also options to charge them at standard 240V (Level 2) and 120V (Level 1) charging stations, which will obviously lengthen the charging time.
The Experia has a claimed range of 245 kilometers (combined), which increases to 417 kilometers in urban areas. Energica claims that even when riding hard, the range will be 208 kilometers.
Mechanical Hardware by Energica Experia
The Experia is equipped with a brand-new chassis that features a trellis-style front section and cast alloy elements surrounding the swingarm pivot. Sachs provides the suspension, which includes a fully adjustable 43mm fork up front and a rear shock with rebound and preload adjustments, both with 150mm of travel. Other Energica models, interestingly, use Marzocchi forks and Bitubo shocks, so this is a departure from previous Energica models. The 17-inch cast alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2 rubber add to the impression that this is a road-oriented tourer rather than a no-holds-barred dirt explorer.
Brembo provides the braking hardware, which includes dual 330mm discs up front clamped down by radially mounted monobloc calipers and a single 240mm disc at the rear, as well as Bosch cornering ABS. A regenerative braking system with four modes – high, medium, low, and off – is also available, which returns some power to the battery while slowing down the vehicle.
Rider Aids and Features on The Energica Experia
The Experia comes standard with a six-level traction control system and seven rider modes. Eco, Urban, Rain, and Sport are the four factory presets, while the other three are fully customisable by the rider. Cruise control is standard, and it regulates not only the throttle but also the regenerative braking system to keep the rider at the desired speed.
Two USB ports near the TFT display and two more in the waterproof storage compartment on top of the tank come standard. The 112-litre hard luggage and heated grips are standard on the launch edition, but will be optional on the standard version in the future. The list of optional accessories will also grow in the future, according to Energica.
