Published: 06 February 2018

MotoGP bosses Dorna have pulled the covers off the Energica MotoE machines that will make up the one-make series when it takes to the grid for the first time in 2019. Unveiled by safety officer and project development rider Loris Capirossi in Rome this morning, the machine is a modified version of the Italian firm’s road-going electric superbike.

Starting in 2019, Dorna boss Carmelo Ezpeleta also announced the structure of the grid for the series with five races in Europe, with 14 of the 18 spots on the grid being allocated to satellite MotoGP teams and a further two each to Moto2 and Moto3 teams. However, no riders have yet to be confirmed.
