Mid­night Cow­boy

With a face only a mother could love, En­er­gica’s new bike is cer­tainly dif­fer­ent

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

This new elec­tric street­fighter has been un­leashed by Ital­ian elec­tric bike man­u­fac­turer En­er­gica.

The Mid­night Racer is a cus­tomised En­er­gica Eva, and a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween En­er­gica and Apache Cus­tom Mo­tor­cy­cles, who helped En­er­gica with the styling of the stan­dard naked bike.

Apache say the styling cues have been taken from Grand Prix rac­ers of the 1970s, and the cus­tom fair­ings, which were hand-made from scratch, took more than 280 hours of work. The Bri­tish Rac­ing Green paintjob has been cho­sen to make the bike ap­pear ‘noble and el­e­gant’, while the head­lights, which aren’t to ev­ery­one’s taste (to put it mildly), are taken from an old rally car.

At the heart of the bike is the 100kw Eva mo­tor, so the Mid­night Racer goes from 0-60mph in just three sec­onds and has a claimed range of 125 miles on a full charge.

Com­ment­ing on the dis­tinc­tive styling, Apache said: “The Mid­night Racer is a roar of the en­gine to the eye, not to the ears. It is a per­fect fu­sion of past, present and fu­ture. It’s a race in the night, a bea­con that lights the way and it is si­lence.”

That’s us told then. Yours for £25k!
