2015 Energica Eva Is the World’s First Electric Super Naked at EICMA 2014

Right next to the Energica Ego we had the chance to see the world’s first electric super naked being unveiled. Of course, we took plenty of pictures for you as well and yes, we’re talking about the 2015 Energica Eva, a bike that needs no more introduction.

As we already said, the two-wheeler created by the exotic Italian company is the streetfighter version of its bigger, meaner brother. The design looks similar but has some differences in key areas like the handlebars, repositioned pegs and fewer fairings. After all, it’s a naked!For now, Eva appeals to a small niche
Altogether, the electric bike segment is appealing to a small demographic already. Take them all together and split them amongst themselves, based on their looks and you get an even smaller niche that you’re aiming at.

It’s the case with the Electrica Eva as well that’s considered the world’s first electric super naked. Therefore, it will appeal to those that aim to use it to brag to their friends and drive it on special occasions, but not every day. Call it a second bike.The differences between the Ego and Eva are limited to the design
Despite looking different the two actually share the underpinnings. The same 136 HP, 143 lb-ft (194 Nm) of torque motor is used along with the same battery that can hold up to 11.7 kWh of energy.

Other specs include the same Marzocchi 43mm adjustable forks up front and Ohlins adjustable shock mounted to an aluminum swingarm in the back. The wheels are different though, the Eva showing a spoked design.

As far as range goes, you’ll be able to cover up to 150 km (95 mi) on a single charge which seems like too little but considering the battery is completely recharged in just 30 minutes it shouldn’t be a huge problem.
