MotoE bike supplier Energica to depart series after 2022

  • 2022 season marks the end of four-year agreement
  • Dorna Sports has not yet revealed who will replace Energica as supplier

Dorna Sports, promoter of global motorcycling series MotoGP and its electric counterpart MotoE, has announced the departure of Energica as the single MotoE supplier after the 2022 season.

Italian-based manufacturer Energica has been the sole supplier of bikes to MotoE since the series' inception in 2019, and the 2022 season marks the last of their four-year partnership.

During the agreement, Energica has helped to develop MotoE's Energica Ego Corsa, the electric motorcycle used by riders in the series.

Dorna Sports has not yet revealed which organisation will take over the role of supplier for the championship.

"The first three seasons of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup have delivered an incredible show despite all the unforeseen external challenges that have been thrown at us," said Nicolas Goubert, executive director of MotoE.

"From the very beginning, Energica has brought its know-how to the track in a way we couldn’t be happier with, delivering a package that has proved to be extremely competitive, showing impressive maximum speed (exceeding 260km/h in Barcelona in 2021), and lap times that on some occasion were in line with other classes – despite the much shorter history of electric motorcycles.

"All sides are committed to continuing giving their maximum effort into 2022, for what will be another spectacular year of racing. I would really like to thank Energica for the quality of their innovative products and their engagement in the MotoE series."
