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