Energica knock £1500 off model range

Published: 24 May 2017

Energica, the Italian company behind the Eva and Ego electric motorcycles are not yet approved as part of the UK government's Plug-In grant for electric vehicles, so they've decided to reduce the price of both models by £1500.

The reduction means the naked roadster Eva is now available in the UK for £26,499 and the sportsbike Ego 45 costs £48,499. So there's still a little way to go before these prestigious battery-powered bikes are affordable for all.


What's the Plug-In grant?

The plug-in grant is a government subsidy of upto £1500 or 20% of the original price, whichever is smaller, as long as the bike meets certain criteria. 48-year-old Fred Murphy became the first motorcyclist to take advantage of the grant when he purchased a Zero FXS in March this year.

We're running an Energica Eva on the  #MCNfleet17 to see how electric bikes cope in a world that is still fully committed to internal combustion engines. Click the link above to keep up to date with our time with the Eva.

We also recently tested the Eva against its closest competition in the UK, the Zero SR, which is much cheaper at £15,690.
