Yeah,  it drew a crowd.  The new white/moon was also nice but I fell in love with the red/white/green

2014 Zero SR, highly accessorized. 2008 Vectrix VX-1, maybe for sale, stock, very reliable.  I lost my faith in Zero with my 2011 S, but regained it with my 2014 SR.  Also, a 2001 Honda Helix, black, kept for sentimental reasons.

I'm pretty sure Energica has other problems now and that sales are way below their expectations. There are simply not that many people out there willing to pay more than 30k € for a bike with no history, experience and not even a proper battery warranty. Furthermore I've heard about a lot of issues from an owner.

What kinds of issues?

Mostly electronics/firmware. Service required every 6 months/5000 km. Bikes had to be shipped to get serviced, sometimes even back to Italy. Owners had to organize that and were made to pay for some stuff. Regretting their purchase a lot.
