Dorna confirms supplier for electric series
12 December 2017 – MotoGP promoter Dorna Sports has announced the supplier for the new FIM Moto-e World Cup electric series, which is set to begin in 2019.
Italian firm Energica has been selected and will supply a tuned version of the Energica Ego, which appeared in this year's Isle of Man TT Zero competition.
Producing 145bhp and capable of 150mph, the Ego will provide "world-beating performance but zero emissions" as it supports selected MotoGP events.
"The FIM Moto-e World Cup is a new and exciting project for Dorna, and it makes us very proud to announce Energica will be the supplier in this new venture," said Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports.
"We believe in excellence, quality and performance and we cannot think of a better collaborator with whom to launch the FIM Moto-e World Cup.
"Energica are an industry-leading and innovative company and we look forward to the incredible spectacle of electric-powered racing together."
It was recently announced that Michelin MotoGP technical chief Nicolas Goubert will leave the manufacturer to head up the Moto-e World Cup.
