The contract offer was published in November 2022 and was aimed at supplying 2- and 3-wheeled vehicles for public customers, including French police agencies. In particular, the bid won by Energica – was related to the supply of “road trail” type electric motorcycles with more than 8kW of power.
Energica will therefore supply electric motorcycles – Experia model – in three versions: the regular version (unmarked police bike), National Police, and Gendarmerie versions. The Experia Green Tourer is a specially adapted model based on the model that was built for the Indonesian National Police for the 2022 G20 Bali Summit.
“We are proud of the trust placed in us by the French central purchasing body and are delighted to be working with such an important institution,” says Livia Cevolini, CEO of Energica Motor. “This new business extension opens up extraordinary possibilities for the company. The French government is implementing important policies supporting the adoption of electric vehicles for the next Olympics. We are honored to be part of this transition.”
“Each Experia can be customized with local police colors, following the equipment mounting, lighting, radio, and siren requirements of each country,” Giacomo Leone, Energica sales director, comments.
Guillaume Tirard, Tendance Roadster managing director, adds: “We are delighted to have been selected by UGAP. This is a great recognition of all the work provided during these years. We look forward to starting this new and exciting adventure.”
