From 1970 CRP Group has been a pioneer in the world of international motorsports and a hub of excellence for its state- of-the-art technologies
CRP Group’s know-how played a key role on the design of Energica’s high-performing electric motorcycles (Ego, Eva, Eva EsseEsse9) and now it is supporting the development of Energica Ego Corsa, the all-electric superbike for the 2019 FIM Enel MotoE ™ World Cup.
The design of this racebike required technical expertise. The experience and technologies inherited from the parent company, CRP Group, allow to create a new concept of racing motorcycling admired all over the world.
All the solutions have been developed with the support of CRP Group’s know-how. CRP will keep going on collaborating closely with Energica, to achieve optimal results in a very short time.
CRP Technology (the CRP Group’s specialized company in the field of laser sintering and Windform® composite materials) is manufacturing aerodynamic parts in professional 3D printing with Windform® materials. CRP Meccanica (since over 45 years alongside F1 teams as strategic partner for the production of hi-tech mechanical components) is working on the development of the new battery combined with updated suspension/brake settings, new brakes and ratios.
CRP’s innovative technology helped the creation of a new racing-spec battery with +50% more power and storage in a package that is smaller in size and lighter.
All these elements are improving the general performance of the superbike, bringing it closer to the preset targets.
The seventh demo lap of the year will get underway on Sunday, June 17th, at 13:20 local time (GMT +2) during the Grand Prix of Catalunya of the 2018 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship.
A legend from the past has been chosen to ride the all-electric, track-ready superbike machine: two-time world champion and local hero Àlex Crivillé.
CRP and Energica Ego Corsa shine around Mugello Circuit
Six-time world champion Max Biaggi jumped aboard the track-ready, all-electric superbike machine by Energica (with the technical support of CRP’ specialized companies) for a fun and meaningful demo lap of the legendary Italian venue of the Mugello Circuit during the last round six of the 2018 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship.
He stated: “It has been a fantastic lap, like a throwback in time! To be doing the demo lap in front of a hundred thousand fans in those colorful grandstands brought me back to the times when I was fighting for victories in MotoGP. Even back then the riders’ fan clubs were located at specific corners of the track – mine was at the Casanova-Savelli!”.
“The lap was great and I really enjoyed it. It was almost a relief when I left the pit-lane and headed out onto the straight down to the first turn. I was coming from a full year of not being on any type of motorcycle due to the accident I had in July last year. Overall it was a really great experience and maybe something to repeat one day?”
