Have any of the Egos sold yet?
« on: November 08, 2015, 08:11:12 PM »

I've seen the You Tube videos on the bike and the stats and fit and finish look awesome.  But no one has posted anything in this section.  I know this price point is out of most people's range but such a nice bike.

Do you mean 30 or 300?  Ducati only sold 44,000 bikes last year, across all of their model ranges.

500 for 2015

30000 for 2016 (including expansion in US and Canada)
source: over phone when ordering my bike.
Did not say they already sold 30000 or will sell that many :-)

PS. did not know Ducati was selling electric super bikes ^^

Energica *wants* to sell 500 in 2015.  That video was taken last year when they were bringing the bikes around the US for test rides.  There is no public information about how many have actually sold.

Very nice!  Better than the white and neon green by far.  Please feel free to post how you like it what your range is and how it handles and accelerates.  Best electric sport bike made right now.

As i have driven the Zero SR 2015 on two occasions i can tell that the handling is very different.
Until now i have just driven in normal mode ( i also have sport Mode because i ordered it with the Corsa Kit(OZ Racing Wheels, Sport Map, Tech Seat, Carbon Kit and Fast Charging) i can only tell that the handling is great because you can really control the acceleration as if the bike is a part of you and the recuperation braking is perfectly setup on this bike it is not too hard and not too soft it is softer that the recuperation braking in my tesla but that is a good thing.

One of the many things to love except the look is the turbine sound that really gets startet at about 20 km/h+ so at about 15m/h+ it really makes you addicted to this bike and the acceleration is a total different dimension compared to the zero sr and you feel much more confident on this bike then on the zero sr.

I came from an Yamaha FZ 6N and sold it because it wasnt accelerating as good or better than my tesla and the running cost were much higher here in germany (we also pay like 5-10 times what you guys pay for electricity too but it still is cheaper that taxes insurance and gas bills for regular cars or bikes).

i bought the bike for my birthday as i turned 31 (last years birthday present was the tesla p85d).

Unfortunately i did not have the chance to drive that much and when i drove it was 5-10 °C and until now the weather here is terrible but i will write a lot when the next season starts (also bought the bike to drive less with the tesla(drove over 16.000 km in the first 9 months) and i can charge for free near my work place with the short charging CCS system of the ego). i plan to drive up to 15.000 km with the ego per year and i dont have it as some sort of collectors item as i only own those 2 vehicles as it is pretty expensive to own more and we dont have that cheap prices on land here so i dont even have a garage as i live in a bigger city ;-)

But you guys will read more from me -> if any question may rise just feel free to answer and yes the software language can be changed from italian to english :-) helps a lot

Very nice collection!  Welcome to the forum too.

Have you thought about powdercoating the swinging arm a darker colour? I think that would look smart, although i imagine its brighter in the metal than it is in the photographs.

@NoiseBoy: i like to keep my vehicles as stock as they can be. So no but it could look good but i like the look that way already enough  ;)

i took a picture of the Cockpit:


And i also took some new pictures in my custom motorcycle garage.







As there is still snow and ice outside or rain and wind like crazy i didn't had the chance to ride since the last time.....

i hope it will be better soon.

Please tell me that you're planning to do a few laps at the ring this spring/summer?
