Last Friday wasn’t a good one for Energica Motor Company whose racing equipment sustained significant damage during IRTA Test.

It’s almost been 10 years that CRP Group launched the Energica Project. The latter consists in manufacturing sport electric motorcycles. CRP Group has always supported the manufacturing of these electric motorcycles using CNC techniques and additive manufacturing techniques.

In such critical environment, the experts always carry out tests to ensure the validity of their production. One can remember the first successful tests of Ego Corsa, a motorbike designed using 3D Printing technology.

However, things did not turn perfectly for the IRTA MotoE test which has seen its equipment significantly damaged by a fire. We presume the latter has been manufactured with the same rigor and tenacity in the use of technologies by CRP Group. Nevertheless, the group shows its unconditional support to Energica to help it go through this stage. An investigation is currently underway to discover the cause of the fire. Early findings should be released as soon as possible.

The Energica project stems from the entrepreneurial vision of my family back in 2009” – stated Engineer Franco Cevolini, CRP Group’s CEO and CTO. “The CRP Group was fundamental for the industrial development of Energica since the very first prototypes, and we continue to be Energica’s technological partner.

 “This setback does not stop our mission, as challenges are and always will be part of our DNA” says Energica Motor Company’s CEO Livia Cevolini. “As tenacious Italians of the Motor Valley we are hard at work already to bring this project forward – as we strongly believe in it. We will do everything necessary to save the championship, so we’ll see you on track!
