The Energica Ego, the Italian electric superbike, has been approved for sale and accredited in the United States by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) according to the company. The Italian electric motorcycle has also gotten certification by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well.
This means the bike is ready to be sold in America and is highway legal. This can be a major hurdle for new vehicle start-ups so it’s good to see them getting there. According to the Italian motorcycle company the first batch of Egos are currently in production and most are already sold. Deliveries should begin in the third quarter of 2015. Priority will be given to Energica Ego45 reservation holders.
Energica recently added three European dealerships to it’s network. It will be interesting to see how they build up the US dealership network.
