Updated 3D printed fairing for Ego Corsa

The 2019 Ego Corsa race bike prototype with a new 3D printed fairing with improved aerodynamics was on track during the last series of tests carried out before the upcoming first edition of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup. The 3D printed fairing was manufactured by CRP Technology via Laser Sintering using Windform XT 2.0 carbon fibre reinforced composite material.

CRP Technology is Energica Motor Company’s technical supporter in the development of the 2019 Ego Corsa. “We have had the fairing available in short time,” said the Energica technical staff. “This fairing 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.”

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, CRP Technology explains.

The road to the 2019 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup has been busy this summer, with the Energica Ego Corsa 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.

Since the end of March, the Energica Ego Corsa has completed an average of 60 laps per day, covering a total distance of 4000km. “These impressive numbers show the ultimate commitment of Energica to this new, exciting chapter of two-wheeled motorsport,” the Energica technical staff conclude.
