MotoGP: the championship becomes electric thanks to Enel

The FIM Enel MotoE World Cup will be the first World Championship racing series with electric motorbikes. The competition was presented on 6 February at Officine Farneto in Rome. Dorna, the Spanish organizer of this new MotoGP class, and Enel, the main sponsor, seized the opportunity of the Rome event to introduce the first details of the Championship that will kick off in 2019 and run alongside the European stages of the Motorcycle World Championship.

The collaboration with Dorna does not end here. Enel will also be the MotoGP Sustainable Power Partner with a long-term commitment to sustainability in motorcycle sports.

The new MotoE World Cup will use the fast charging electric motorbikes built by the Italian company Energica that offer a perfect combination of performance and zero emissions.

The Energica EgoGP bike, accompanied on stage by three-time world champion Loris Capirossi, will have a considerable range and will be able to reach speeds of up to 250 km/h.

Electrifying mobility is important for a number of reasons: to limit environmental impact, reduce reliance on imported hydrocarbons from abroad, and increase transport efficiency
