If after a versatile all-around motorcycle helmet for adventure, the Arai Tour-X4 ticks all the boxes. With a removable visor, interchangeable visors, and the ability to completely remove the visor and run goggles instead, this cover is well worth checking out.

Packed with features and designed to current ECE 22-05 safety standards required in 50 countries, the TX4 certainly meets the high standards set by Arai as a premium supplier.

I “debuted” this helmet when the Zero DSR/X was launched in Italy, and have since ridden it on many adventure rides, including the KTM 1290 Super Adventure R.

Arai Tour-X4 Pricing and Availability

The Arai Tour-X4 has an RRP of £599, although you tend to regularly find deals online that put it between £400 and £500. It’s definitely an expensive option, but for those looking for the premium brands to protect your noggin, it’s money spent in the best place.

Available in a huge range of colors including Diamond White (as pictured), Frost Black, matte colors and colored variations, even a special Honda Africa Twin design, the TX4 can be grabbed in size XS to XXL – with a outer shell for both helmet sizes.

The cover also comes with a 5 year warranty, effective against defects in materials and workmanship – and Arai are proud to state that an average of 18 hours of work goes into each helmet with 5 stages of quality control separate once done. Each expert can also take up to 5 years to earn the right to create an Arai hull!

A new touring motorcycle jacket has been released by iXS, with the Gerona-Air 1.0 being released for the summer.

The time of its release is no coincidence: the Gerona-Air 1.0 product is well ventilated to ensure maximum cooling during long, hot summer motorcycle rides.

This is achieved by using a mesh lining, as well as other additional mesh panels on the jacket which iXS says “provide optimal ventilation and allow good regulation of body temperature”.

Of course, touring jackets are necessarily very breathable. They are for those who like long trips rather than short errands. But long rides also bring an element of weather variability, and wind and rain can also present a challenge for a rider’s gear.

To cope with the potential for rain, iXS has made the Gerona-Air 1.0 compatible with the windproof and waterproof Montevideo-ST membrane.

Gerona-Air 1.0 also has seven pockets – two inside, four outside and a Napoleon pocket – for strong storage capacities, as well as a compartment to insert a back protector. There are also protective pads in the elbows and shoulders, of course.

The Gerona-Air 1.0 jacket also has matching pants/trousers of the same name, which can be attached to the jacket via a perimeter zipper.

Can it be called Ronin or Zeppelin R?

The next new motorcycle from TVS has been in the news for some time now. As its launch date (July 6, 2022) approaches, several details about the motorcycle are leaked online. At first it was the T-shaped DRL on the round headlights, followed by the official name of the bike. Now an image of the entire motorcycle has been revealed.

Below, we’ve discussed some of the key details of TVS’ upcoming scrambler-style cruiser motorcycle that stand out in the leaked images.

The TVS Ronin or Zeppelin R was first unveiled at Auto Expo 2018. At the time, the bike featured strong lines with a muscular but boxy tank size and a one-piece saddle. Not much has changed with production spec mode except for the tank design and new two-tone color shown above in the leaked image.

However, the square ends of the tank shape have been smoothed out. Another design highlight is the round headlight design with the T-shaped DRL. There’s that distinct premium appeal with the Ronin aka Zeppelin R, which can sometimes remind you of the bulbous-looking Triumph Trident.

Mechanically, the Ronin aka Zeppelin R should fit the engine of the Apache RTR 200 4V but slightly tuned. Also, it remains to be seen whether the new bike will be built on the Apache’s chassis or an all-new unit. But the golden inverted forks are clearly visible, as is the monoshock at the rear. The motorcycle should also be equipped with dual ABS.

TVS has confirmed the launch date of the Ronin/Zeppelin R, and we expect its price to be between ₹1.5 lakh and ₹2.5 lakh. Once launched here in India, it could slot into the 250cc motorcycle segment which includes competitors such as – Husqvarna duos of Svartpillen and Vitpillen, the newly launched Pulsar N250 or the KTM Duke 250.

Riding the All-New Energica Experia Electric Touring Motorcycle – CleanTechnica Review https://motostays.com/riding-the-all-new-energica-experia-electric-touring-motorcycle-cleantechnica-review/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 14:40:17 +0000 https://motostays.com/riding-the-all-new-energica-experia-electric-touring-motorcycle-cleantechnica-review/ Recently I had the chance to ride the brand new Energica Experia, a green touring bike designed for the long-distance rider looking for a comfortable riding position, long range, capacity for load and without compromising on performance.

Recently I had the chance to ride the brand new Energica Experia, a green touring bike designed for the long-distance rider looking for a comfortable riding position, long range, capacity for load and without compromising on performance. Energica offers all of that with this bike, and more. The bike comes fully kitted out, including a number of carry cases to hit the road with everything you need for epic adventures.

The frame, battery and motor have been completely redesigned for this new bike, the fourth model from Energica, after the Esse Esse 9, the Ribelle and the sports racing bike, the Ego. According to Giampiero Testoni, CTO for Energica (my podcast with him coming soon), it’s completely redesigned – not just a redesign or tweak to the existing infrastructure of their current models. The bike sports fewer rare earths, 10 kg less weight and yet 1 kW more storage.

“We focused on building a complete new bike,” Testoni said. “We started with feedback [from customers of the existing models], and the points they thought they could improve… but those were just the starting points of the redesign… 99.5% of the bike is new. It took 1.5 years from inception to deployment, according to Testoni.

The mass is more centered and the saddle is lower so the bike is more comfortable for slightly shorter riders than Energica’s other models…very important when moving slowly or coming to a stop. It has the longest range of any electric motorcycle (261 miles city, 130 highway, 161 mixed-use), as noted by Jo Borras in his earlier post about the launch of Experia (and Jo knows the technical side than me, so I’ll let you read his review as well, if you’re interested in more of that side and more of Energica’s Experia page).

My Tour and Review of the Energica Experia

One of the things I love about Energica is that they know how to light a journalist’s fire. Their approach is simple – we could tell you all about it, but instead let us take you for a ride so you can experience it for yourself. So I joined about 20 other journalists in the mountains of the Dolomites in northern Italy to loop around some of the most stunning terrain the world has ever created, with plenty of hairpin bends . This is a motorcycle enthusiast’s dream trip.

My ride was nothing short of breathtaking. Because an electric motorcycle allows you to spend more time concentrating on riding and less time operating the bike, I found myself cruising the landscape whenever traffic permitted and breathing in the moment of being. sitting on a high-performance machine apparently designed for this exact ride. The weather gods, well, they smiled on us too — there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the temperature was perfect.

I have to admit that I’m not really a tech guy – I’m much more of a business guy here at Clean Technica, and I leave the nuts and bolts to people like Jo, Johnna, Zach and the rest. So I view rides like this as an enthusiast and a potential “mainstream” customer would. The first and most prevalent thing that was obvious about the Experia was its maneuverability. You can lean over and feel no discomfort – see the photo below of my camera mount. The center of gravity is lower than previous models, and it handles a hairpin without flinching.

Acceleration is similar to other Energica models, that is, insane. So getting out of a hairpin U-turn and hitting the gas to catch up with the gang was a thrill every time. At one point I reached 125 kilometers per hour on the Experia (okay, below the 136 I reached in the morning on the Eva Ribelle), and consistently it was up to at 80 between turns with the slightest twist of the throttle.

The next thing any electric motorcycle rider will tell you is that regenerative braking just plain rocks, especially in terrain like this. Not only do you not have to think about shifting, but I barely touched the brakes on a roughly 2 hour ride. I’m a rookie rider compared to many of the journalists in the bunch, many of whom have been riding for over 20 years and some, like Revzilla’s Andy Greaser, who’ve been building and rebuilding bikes for a decade or more. But many of these folks are still new to electrics, and that was one of the main comments we discussed over dinners and after-ride drinks. I set regeneration to B2 (second highest level), and it really seemed to do the trick.

I could easily see taking a long ride on this bike, riding up to Yosemite for a long weekend, or hiking through the Andes and visiting villages for coffee and recharging. It has a great comfortable riding position, and my hands, which often go numb on sportier bikes if I lean on them too much, were happy and full of good circulation for the duration of this ride.

I will say that the Experia doesn’t seem to handle as well as the Ribelle or even the Esse Esse 9 but they are more capable bikes so it’s not really a criticism but more of an observation that it is simply less sporty and built for longer rides. Other journalists with more experience and technical know-how observed that the ABS could not be turned off as an option, which they felt needed to be in place for longer trips, and I noted that the rear brake felt a lot softer than I wanted it to. be. At our press event someone asked about updates, which are still not possible over a wifi connection, meaning riders should expect to take their bikes to the dealer for updates. updated several times during the first years of ownership. The only other criticism I heard in conversations with other reviewers was the price, which at ~$25,000 fully loaded (all cargo boxes, etc.) and $23,750 base, could be a bit out of reach for some runners.

Overall, though, I think the performance is amazing, the range is best in class, and the ability to charge at level 1, 2 or 3 gives a lot of flexibility (Energica is still the only company to offer all three standard load levels on its bikes).

Florian Neuhauser, from Roadrunner Motorcycle Touring and Travel Magazine, originally from Austria, has spent a lot of time riding the Dolomites, and after more than 20 years of riding, said: “I have been able to enjoy the Dolomites frequently. I’ve spent a lot of time on a gas motorbike here. The big difference is the fun factor, really. On a gas bike you are constantly working the bike, there is so much traffic here one switchback after another…whereas on the Experia you can really concentrate on the road. The motorcycle drives by itself, just twist the throttle and go.

“Was it the most fun ride you’ve ever done in the Dolomites?” I asked. “I would say yes,” he said.

Energica launches new Experia touring motorcycle https://motostays.com/energica-launches-new-experia-touring-motorcycle/ Fri, 03 Jun 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://motostays.com/energica-launches-new-experia-touring-motorcycle/ Italian electric motorcycle manufacturer Energica is launching its new adventure model, the Experia. Taking the segment built by BMW’s GS platform, the Experia features long-travel adjustable suspension, variable-torque applications and a claimed range of 261 miles in the city.

  • Italian electric motorcycle manufacturer Energica is launching its new adventure model, the Experia.
  • Taking the segment built by BMW’s GS platform, the Experia features long-travel adjustable suspension, variable-torque applications and a claimed range of 261 miles in the city.
  • Pricing for the Experia starts at $25,880, with preorders open now.

    Each motorcycle class has its hero. Oil-boiling Suzuki GSX-Rs are fairing-clad legends while Ducati’s trellis-framed Monster heavily influenced a line of European naked bikes. For the wayward traveler, the mile-devouring comfort of a high windshield and wide handlebars cemented the BMW GS platform as the one to beat.

    And many have tried, but now there is a newcomer to the competition. Based in Modena, Italy, Energica has been manufacturing performance-oriented electric motorcycles since 2014. In launching the new Experia, a complete and relatively tall touring motorcycle, the parallels with a GS or Ducati Multistrada are clear.

    Powered by a 306-volt permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor, the Experia produces peak outputs of 102 hp and a torque range of 85-664 lb-ft, charged via a 22.6 kWh lithium-polymer battery. Energica claims a city range of 261 miles, although the company clarified that a combined range of 160 miles is more realistic. As a testament to the roadtrip-ready nature of the adventure-touring class, Energica equipped the Experia with Level 2 and DC fast charging compatibility. A fast charge rate of four miles per minute allows the battery to be charged to 80% in just 40 minutes.

    energetic

    Under parent company CRP Group, Energica was born with a racing pedigree from the days of CRP Racing, and so the handling and braking hardware are still name brand, quality components. An all-new tubular steel trellis frame and cast aluminum swingarm hold the bike together. ZF Sachs’ adjustable suspension allows for preload, rebound and compression adjustment in the front, as well as preload and rebound adjustment in the rear. Brembo supplies the brakes, with 330mm four-piston front discs and 240mm twin-piston rear discs.

    A sophisticated Bosch cornering ABS unit is standard, allowing the on-board computer to take lean angle into account when calculating anti-lock intervention. This system will come in handy if owners take their Experia off the beaten track. With almost six inches of travel in the front and two in the rear, the Experia would be suitable for service roads and loose surfaces. With a curb weight of 573 pounds, the bike is certainly not light, but still on par with its internal combustion competitors, which is commendable for an electric vehicle.

    energetic

    Pricing is one area where Energica struggles to compete, with the Experia starting at $25,880. For similarly priced bikes, buy the higher echelons of Ducati and BMW and with added extras. For example, a Multistrada V4S starts at $26,095 but weighs 100 pounds less, packs 70 more horsepower, and has a 208-mile highway range. Nevertheless, the Energica Experia is marketed as a luxury cruiser and is equipped as such. Hard luggage, heated grips and molded driver and passenger seats are all standard equipment.

    Energica is stepping into a segment that electric motorcycle manufacturers have yet to enter. As LiveWire focuses on urban mobility and Zero continues its line of sporty naked bikes, Energica now competes with legacy brands in well-trodden territory. Pre-orders for the adventure tourer are now open, although the company has yet to provide a specific delivery date.

Energica takes a step closer to eliminating range anxiety with an all-electric touring motorcycle designed to charge quickly and consume miles.

The Energica Experia combines the style and handling of an Italian racing bike with the comfort of a dedicated touring machine. The result is an all-electric ride capable of 261 miles around town between charges.

The bike combines a high capacity 22.5kWh battery with weight savings resulting from careful material use and design.

Sightseeing on a motorcycle is one of the best things you can experience in your life. Exploring distant places while having the feeling of wind in your hair is something that cannot really be explained but just begs to be experienced.

Although there is an electric vehicle revolution underway in the automotive world, tourism was an area where electric motorcycles could not really prove themselves. The reason is simple. Electric motorcycles have limited range and range is everything in the world of touring.

Energica Experia electric touring motorcycle with more than 400 km of autonomy: will it be launched in India?

Most petrol motorcycles intended for touring use a large fuel tank and even if the tank is not big enough, refueling can be done in just a few minutes, making them perfect for touring. The same cannot be said for electric motorcycles.

Now, however, it looks like Energica is about to change that with its latest motorcycle. Energica is a performance electric motorcycle manufacturer based in Italy. His other two motorcycles named Ego and Eva have a top speed of 240 km/h and 200 km/h respectively. Motorcycles accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just under 3 seconds!

Energica Experia electric touring motorcycle with more than 400 km of autonomy: will it be launched in India?

They are very fast electric motorcycles. However, with its latest motorcycle, Energica has focused more on range than outright performance. It’s called the Experia and right from the start it seems like the perfect tourer.

For starters, Energica has developed an all-new tubular frame specific to the Experia only. Next comes the battery, battery monitor and motor specifically designed for touring needs. The images of the bike also show a rather relaxed and upright riding position which will make it a bit easier for riders to cover longer distances.

Energica Experia electric touring motorcycle with more than 400 km of autonomy: will it be launched in India?

More importantly, the lineup is just awesome. Energica claims the Experia has a range of 418 kilometers at city driving speeds. Of course, this is an electric vehicle that will lose some range when you hit the highway thanks to the higher speeds. However, with a real range of 257 kilometers on the highway, the Energica Experia seriously impresses.

The fast charge offered is added to the large levels of range offered. The Energica Experia can be fully charged in just around 40 minutes. The motorcycle is powered by a 22.5 kWh battery which the company says is the largest battery in a motorcycle to date.

Energica Experia electric touring motorcycle with more than 400 km of autonomy: will it be launched in India?

The battery sends juice to a unique PMASynRM motor. It is a high-tech motor that combines the advantages of a brushless motor and a brushed motor. As a result, the performance is excellent and the engine is also very efficient. In terms of power, the engine has a peak power of 102 hp and a peak torque of 115 Nm.

Energica has packed the Experia with a lot of technology. This includes a digital cockpit with multiple driving modes. Eco, Urban, Rain and Sport are the riding modes that come with the bike. Apart from that, there are rider profiles which can also be customized.

Energica Experia electric touring motorcycle with more than 400 km of autonomy: will it be launched in India?

As expected, the Experia also has regenerative braking and there are four regen maps – high, medium, low and off. You also get forward and reverse assist at low speeds to help you park the bike.

In terms of hardware, the Energica Experia gets top-notch cycle parts. Braking is provided by dual 330mm discs up front with radially mounted 4-piston Brembo calipers. Suspension is provided by a 43 mm inverted fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The suspension is fully adjustable.

Launch of Energica electric motorcycles in India

In 2019, it was reported that Energica was launching its motorcycles in the Indian market as fully built units. The brand was expected to arrive by the end of 2020. However, the pandemic seemed to have other plans in mind for the world and Energica’s launch in India didn’t quite go to plan.

Now though, if the brand is still interested in entering India, the Experia seems like the perfect model to start with. The Energica Experia will certainly outsell the Ego and Eva. Indian motorcyclists love to tour and many of the Energica Experia motorcycles sold in India will be put to good use.

Thoughts on the Energica Experia electric touring motorcycle reveal

Pricing for the Energica Experia has yet to be revealed. However, its price is expected to be a bit lower than the Energica Ego which costs around 23,000 pounds (Rs 22.51 lakh). If Energica launches the Experia in India, we expect it to be priced at around Rs 18.5 lakh, ex-showroom. This is a great price for everything Energica offers.

Italian automaker Energica Motor Company has unveiled its long-range all-electric touring motorcycle, the Experia, for global markets.

The bike is a comfort-focused offering from the brand inspired by modern ADVs and features a large battery with DC fast charging capability.

The company claims the two-wheeler is its most nimble and maneuverable machine and also offers the longest range.

Why is this story important?

  • Sustainability and electrification are the two words that have been prominent in the global automotive market in recent years. Almost all automakers are trying to follow the electric vehicle bandwagon.
  • Energica Motor Company was established in 2010 and its first product, the Ego sports bike was launched in 2013.
  • The launch of the Experia touring motorcycle is expected to increase competition.

The bike has a prominent beak and projector headlights

Energica Experia sits on a tubular steel trellis frame and features a semi-faired design with a prominent beak, muscular fuel tank-like structure, wide handlebars with heated grips, skid plate and LED headlights dual projector.

It also has a split-type seat, a raised windshield and a digital instrument panel.

The bike rolls on 17-inch cast aluminum wheels with red detailing.

It reaches a top speed of 180 km/h

Energica Experia is powered by an electric motor connected to a large 22.5 kWh battery. The configuration generates 102 hp/900 Nm. The vehicle promises a range of up to 420 km, sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 180 km/h.

There are disc brakes at both ends

For the safety of the pilot, the Energica Experia is equipped with disc brakes on the front and rear wheels, as well as dual-channel ABS for better handling on the roads.

Suspension duties on the two-wheeler are taken care of by 43mm ZF Sachs inverted forks up front and an adjustable ZF Sachs monoshock unit at the rear.

Energica Experia: price and availability

Details regarding the price and availability of the Energica Experia will be disclosed by the Italian automaker at the time of its launch. We expect the bike to cost around £23,000 (around Rs 22.5 lakh) in the UK.

The Energica Experia has just been announced, as the Italian firm takes its first steps into the electric-powered sport touring motorcycle segment.

The idea of ​​an electric-powered touring or adventure motorcycle has been scoffed at for about as long as e-bikes have existed. For the most part, the range and recharge time of most electric motorcycles make them unsuitable long-distance companions.

That might be about to change though, as Energica has just announced a brand new bike from the Experia firm, a dedicated sport tourer with long and fast recharge times.
