The Energica Ego and Ribelle offer a maximum of 107 kW of power, or 143 horsepower. The EsseEsse9 packs in a slightly more modest 80 kW or 107 horsepower.

The EsseEsse9 is also slightly slower, only peaking at 200 km/h (124 mph), while the more powerful bikes can technically get up to 240 km/h (150 mph) when unlocked, though are often locked at a similar 200 km/h (124 mph) limit.

Let’s just say that I wasn’t planning to test that limit. For my type of riding (which is mostly leisure and commuting), 124 mph is going to be plenty, please and thank you.
