Ego Corsa joins the fray with 3D printed parts

CRP Technology is helping and Energica to fine-tune the all-electric superbike Ego Corsa goes full steam ahead

The partnership between CRP Technology and Energica Motor Company to fine-tune the all-electric superbike for the 2019 FIM Enel MotoE ™ World Cup goes full steam ahead!

Ego Corsa, the Energica’s electric racebike for the Fim Enel MotoE™ World Cup, is developing through CRP Technology’s know-how: at the series of tests carried on at the TT Circuit Assen, the 2019 Ego Corsa prototype was on track with a new 3D printed fairing with improved aerodynamics.
The 3D printed fairing was manufactured by CRP Technology via Laser Sintering using Windform XT 2.0 Carbon-fiber reinforced composite material.

“We have had the fairing available in short time” the Energica technical staff states.
Thanks to the professional 3D printing and CRP Technology’s Windform composite materials, it is possible to modify motorcycle components – even large ones – from one race to the next ones, in order to test different solutions directly on the track.

“This fairing”, the Energica technical staff adds, “is not only more aerodynamic, but it also has a smaller frontal and lateral section. These improvements led to achieve increase in terms of performance and they led to achieve greater manageability in fast corners. The Windform XT 2.0 has once again proved to be a high performance composite material. We are very happy how the 3D printed new fairing behaved during the tests “.

Energica Ego Corsa is undergoing an intense schedule of testing at the MotoGP venues, but also away from prying eyes. Earlier this year, the 2019 version of the all-electric Superbike machine by Energica began an extensive developmental programme through the technical support of CRP Technology. Numbers do not lie: since the end of March 2018 the Energica Ego Corsa has completed an average of 60 laps per day, covering a total distance of 4000km (last update: August). These impressive numbers show the ultimate commitment of Energica and CRP to this new, exciting chapter of two-wheeled motorsport.
