The world’s first “classic” retro-styled electric motorcycle is also supremely practical.
Beauty doesn’t have to get in the way of full-bore functionality.
The Italian tradition of combining beautiful design with practical engineering goes back a long, long way, even to ancient Roman times. Yet this beauty is thoroughly modern, in fact, groundbreaking. New for 2022 we give you three stunning new colors but keep the anodized headlamps that have already made the EsseEsse9 an instant classic.
The Energica EsseEsse9+ shares the technology and sophistication of the EGO+ and the EVA Ribelle but is made more suitable for casual riding without the demanding hyper-performance of the other two models. The retro-style bench seat and relaxed riding position make the EsseEsse9+ ideal for two-up riding and it’s the preferred choice for long-distance electric wanderers the world over.
Like all our motorcycles, the EsseEsse9+ has an exclusive feature: all three charging options – Slow Charge Mode 2 or 3 and DC Fast Charge Mode 4, all provided as standard. With our new EMCE technology this means the longest range of any electric motorcycle: 261 miles of city range, 153 miles of combined city and highway range, and 123 miles of extra urban riding. If you want even more acceleration, select the RS Version.
The new EMCE motor and inverter is standard for both versions and rounds out a relaxed, refined, easy to ride, and very, very beautiful motorcycle – yet loaded with power. Classic Italian Style.
Savor more far range than any other electric motorcycle on public roads: a stunning 261 miles for meandering through city streets, 153 miles on call for your mixed urban and freeway travel, and 123 miles of highspeed highway riding.
All this is thanks to a lithium-ion battery that is standard at 21.5 kWh max. capacity, larger than on any other electric motorcycle. This is coupled with the new EMCE liquid-cooled motor and inverter that provides many more benefits besides range: sustained high-speed riding; a bump up to 115 HP while dropping weight by 10 kg (22 lbs.); and far fewer maintenance intervals required than ever before.
Put all this exploring capacity to use with the EsseEsse9+’s very comfortable retro bench seat, higher bars, and lower foot-pegs.
Add a windshield, panniers and tank bag – all the better to invite a passenger to share the ride.

HSM (Hybrid Synchronous Motor) Liquid-Cooled 3-Phase – 300 V – 12,000 rpm with Adaptive Control Inverter.
Energica unveils the new EMCE Motor and Inverter, a significant step forward in electric propulsion for motorcycles. EMCE is a wholly new HSM motor and inverter exclusively co-engineered by Energica and Mavel.
Motor and inverter now share a liquid-cooling system, resulting in a simpler and more effective design with reduced size and greater thermal efficiency. Riders will really appreciate the benefits: lighter weight and a lower center of gravity for enhanced agility; higher peak performance; increased range especially at higher speeds; and substantially reduced maintenance intervals.
Engine and inverter are 10 kg (22 lb.) lighter than our previous design, despite providing better thermal efficiency and more power, reducing EsseEsse9+ weight to 256 kg (564.4 lbs.). Handling for the motorcycle is enhanced as the smaller size also ensures a lower inertia of the motor.
Continuous power delivered by the motor is the same as before at 109 Hp / 80 kW. Together with the increased acceleration of the RS Version you have equal performance to any other brand of electric motorcycle on public roads.
Weight reduction improves range for any speed, but the real benefit is increased range at higher highway speeds thanks to greater thermal efficiency that brings lower working temperatures for the new EMCE motor. Range therefore increases from 5% to 10% according to riding style. Good news for long-distance commuters!
Fewer moving parts means less maintenance is needed than for traditional IC bikes. Our current transmission/motor oil change interval is every 10,000 km/6,000 miles. No longer. Transmission oil changes are now only every 30,000 km/18,600 miles and Motor/Inverter coolant every 45,000 km/28,000 miles. Ride and forget.
