Energica designed the Experia from the ground up with an all-new frame, battery and motor, resulting in a bike that offers tourer comfort while significantly reducing weight. Energica also dialed in the aerodynamics and weather protection via carefully implemented fairings. They even added heated handlebar grips for added comfort on long rides.
