Energica EVA only $16100 and EGO just $17000! Whaaaat?
« on: February 10, 2018, 04:05:19 PM »

I'm back in Dallas for the next couple months and thought I might find a good deal on an Energica to ship home.  For some reason I though Energica had a dealer here.  I wound up speaking with their SanFran office and was blown away by the offer.  A NEW 2017 EVA only $16100 or a NEW 2017 EGO only $17000!  Could someone explain?  I've been looking at north of $30,000 before VAT.  Energica's an European company how can they be priced 50% off here?  Spoke with Moto Corsa and these guys in Israel who sold my daughter her Zero, both said it's got to be a mistake.  Got the impression that both were going to be checking on it.  I imagine with MotoGP Energica is destined for bigger and better but a bit concerned that they're dumping their bike here.  Worse yet, their sales guy spoke of a new dealer in Austin who has the worst of reputations.  Want the EVA 107, good with either EGO or EVA, especially at this price.  You just can't beat the price, but something doesn't feel right.  Can anyone tell me if they'll service an US bike in the UK or Israel?  I brought my Norton back to London and they've been great, just not sure what EU law requires.

It is not a mistake in California.  See attached MSRP stickers at my local BMW shop who started selling the Energica brand a few months ago.  I don't know the real reason for the price drop for sure, but I have been told by the salesman that Energica was able to sell "carbon credits" on California's "cap and trade" market and that gave them enough extra cash to lower the prices on their 2017 models here.  However, BMW is selling their most expensive C-Evolution scooter model in the U.S. for only $14,000 and it sells for much more in Europe.  So perhaps both of these companies are taking a real financial hit on each EV sale just to grow the market here.  (Of course, as soon as H-D introduces their electric motorcycle they will want our government to impose a tariff on imported electric vehicles to protect the U.S. industry from foreign dumping.  ::)  )

The thing that surprises me is that I didn't really see any real improvements for 2018.  I can't find a 2018 specific price listing.  I wonder if they are planning on going back up to the 40k range after the 17's sell.  I hope not.

Here you go:  The Eva will now retail for $23,400, the same price as the new EsseEsse9. The 2018 Ego has an MSRP of $24,900.
