I suppose that (69) gives us a lower bound on the number of units produced! If not sold...

Those eye-wateringly high prices, though. Whew.

How many miles per charge does this EGO get? Is it a street bike or race bike?

The manufacturer claims that it has a range of approximately 100 miles.   The Ego does have regenerative braking so theoretically it would have a greater range in town than on the highway.

This is the street version, with mirrors, tag holder, turn signals, etc.   It does have the optional Sport map.     There is a bluetooth app which syncs to the bike, and if your battery is getting lo you can use the menu button on the left handlebar to find the nearest charging station, and sort by available spots or charge capacity.

This must be the Ego that fell off of the shipping truck late last year. I was in the bidding for it but the gentleman doing the silent auction came back with a $10K "buy it now" offer that I was not interested in sight unseen and untested for frame damage. Looks like this gentleman bought and had it repaired but I dunno about that eyewatering price considering the history. I'd say maybe $20K max, but more than likely close to $16-18K depending on how it rides and on the repair job. Does this come with a salvage title considering the insurance company totaled it?

Hi fsaintl, could you make a video showing the bike is still functioning and riding well?

Hmm.   I'm not sure why I didn't get notification of these posts.   

-> turbotortuga -   you are the second person to make reference to this bike having "fallen off" the shipping truck.  Can you please elaborate as to what you saw?

I have the bike in my possession, and after 17 years in the motorcycle industry I can guarantee that it didn't fall off a truck.   It never even fell over all the way.  Pegs, turn signals, lower body components, outermost body points, etc. are all perfect.  Based on a detailed inspection of the bike, it is obvious that it fell over until the seat/"fuel shelter"  where they meet impacted a piece of wood which stopped the fall from going any further. I suspect it was the edge of a crate since it damaged the bike at its narrowest point without ever hitting any of the contact points farther from the centerline.  The direction of damage indicates that this happened when the bike fell to the left, and was stopped at approximately 30 degrees.  At that point someone used the mirrors as grab points, and straightened the bike, breaking the right mirror off in the process.   The mirror base was bent in the wrong direction, and on the wrong side of the bike,  to have been from the fall.   The top of the brake lever and the top of the bar end weight both had a almost imperceptible scratch on the top of their edges, not bottom. This was most likely from the aggressive over straightening of the bike by the shipper/driver causing the bike to hit a vertical surface, most likely the wall of the truck.  There is also a one inch long scratch on the upper cowl which would have been the outermost contact point now that the mirror had been broken off, which is at the same height as the minor damage to the right rear upper cowl around the seat. There are a couple of very small scuffs on the windshield and lower carbon bodywork that you have to look at in the right light to actually see.  The coolant reservoir for the CPU shows no trace of any fluid having leaked out. The underside of the reservoir cap is even dry.   

I've had all the body work off, and performed a thorough inspection.   None of the body work was damaged enough to even touch the frame. In the pictures above, the only pieces that have been replaced are the "fuel shelter" for lack of a better word, the upper rear side cowls on both sides, the right mirror, and the seat has been repaired by adding the green vinyl to the leading edge to repair the torn area. 

This was shipped, and insured, as cargo.  It had not yet been titled at the time it was damaged so it does not have a salvage title. 

I'm not sure at what point in the process the decision was made to "total" the shipment, but it is obvious someone along the way wanted it to be totaled.  The estimate included $13,000 in shipping charges to have the bike shipped to the EGO office in San Francisco to be evaluated.  I'm not sure how they were going to ship it, but I regularly ship and receive motorcycles from around the US and the most I have ever paid was $825, from the Smoky Mountains to Seattle. I was curious so I got a freight quote  and if I sent it overnight express by UPS Freight it still wouldn't cost $6,500 each way.   I mentioned earlier that the right bar end weight had a very small scuff on it.  The repair estimate listed the complete EGO Ergal screw kit price, when in reality only one piece was needed.   The repair estimate listed the tech seat at $576, which is both the front and rear seat even though just the front seat was damaged.  In other words, the estimate may have been absurdly high.

I've done a forensic analysis of quite a few motorcycles over the years, and in some cases have found that the underlying damage was far worse than the cosmetic damage on the surface would lead you to believe, but in this case the cosmetic damage was in fact just cosmetic.   I've gone over the entire frame looking for any marks, examined all the bodywork both on the surface and also the back side of each piece looking for evidence of contact, measured the wheelbase from front to rear axles on both the left and right side, examined the forks and swing arm in detail, and have run through the on board diagnostics. I have also road tested the bike up to illegal speeds, and I can guarantee that this bike did not "get dropped off the truck".   Anyone who has seen the bike in person would think that claim is absurd.

There is still one sign of damage on the bike that we elected not to replace.   The upper edge of the carbon trim piece below the seat on the left side of the bike has a small chip in it about the size of half a quarter.   If you get down on the ground, look back up, and shine a really bright light on it you will see it but if I hadn't of told you where it was you wouldn't have found it.


I'll get a video or two posted in the next few days. Thanksgiving is coming up and I am in the middle of selling a house but I'll find the time to make a video. The bike runs well, rides straight, and the acceleration is very addictive. I've driven a Tesla, and this feels faster. I've also ridden everything from a Ruckus to Hayabusa.   Nothing compares to the effortless and smooth application of power.

I forgot to mention, I may have determined the probable cause of the damage.

The right grip was torn pretty badly. It looks like the type of damage I have seen before when a canyon dancer is used or when a shipper uses the grips as a tie down point straight down to the pallet.   Also, when I received the bike the clip ons were set at 180 degrees (9 and 3 o'clock) instead of the proper 8 and 4 positions, so when you tried to turn the bars to the left the front brake would engage against the upper cowl.   It is possible that a shipper/driver was rolling the bike and had the wheel lock up when turning left, which would explain the pattern of the damage.

Thanks for that description; I suspect that Energica bikes just get a real white-glove mentality around them regarding damage declarations because of a lack of track record with them.
