[kropotkin thinks...] - Energica To Stop As MotoE Bike Supplier At End Of 2022 - Big

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.

-----------------

Energica is to withdraw as official manufacturer motorcycles for the MotoE class at the end of the 2022 season. After four years, MotoE will see something other than the Energica Ego Corsa machine being raced.

The MotoE class has been a qualified success since the class started back in 2019. It got off to a troubled start - a fire at the final test of 2019 at Jerez saw the entire fleet of Energica machines destroyed, causing the start of the inaugural season to be delayed until early July, to give Energica enough time to build replacement machines.

There were concerns about how the class would be received by fans, the motorcycle industry being notoriously conservative. But after some mild initial skepticism, the series has been embraced, the short (7-10 lap) races producing exciting and intense battles. The 2021 season finale at Misano 1 generated the controversy and excitement needed to raise the profile of the series, with Jordi Torres taking the title after a last-lap clash with Dominique Aegerter, the Swiss rider making a final desperate lunge into the hairpin at the end of the back straight and taking both riders down.
