The Energica EVA Ribelle has won deservedly high praise from the motorcycle press who’ve demonstrated over and again, that off-the-line, the EVA’s 159 lb-ft of torque beats every IC sportbike or sportscar it’s ever been tested against.
But speed demons and commuters alike will be delighted to learn about two new developments for this year have hyped the bar for performance even higher.
The RS Version has a revised drivetrain and VCU software that plunges 0-60 mph times further still; and the new EMCE motor and inverter lightens the EVA Ribelle to 573 lbs. while upping peak horsepower from 145 Hp to 169 Hp. On top of this, range is extended up to 10% and maintenance intervals have been reduced by three to four times.
