A partnership agreement brings ONE Energy Racing and Italmoto together in the electric motorcycle racing series.
ONE Energy Racing are delighted to welcome Italmoto to their structure, in a collaboration which makes use of their experience in electric motorcycles during the 2021 FIM MotoE World Cup season. Running Brazilian talent Eric Granado as their rider in the series, the deal sees Italmoto contribute their knowledge to the team in the quest to achieve further victories over the course of the remainder of the season. The Italmoto logo appears on the bottom of the bike, as well as on the rider’s leathers.
Italmoto is an Italian electric motorcycle manufacturer founded in Bologna in 1952. Since its inception, its main objective has been to promote sustainable mobility through the manufacture of high-tech vehicles, which combine sophisticated design with an ambition of preserving the environment. With around twenty showrooms located throughout Italy, its product range is varied and includes 125cc and 250cc motorcycles, electric bicycles and scooters.
The Italian manufacturer are committed to constant innovation. One of their latest projects is the development of a propulsion system for electric bicycles, based on regulating the battery supply according to pedalling effort. The sustainability and efficiency represented by Italmoto are two essential factors for achieving success in the FIM MotoE World Cup, and for this reason ONE Energy Racing have decided to join forces with the Italian brand and seek the highest possible level of competitiveness on track.
The team benefits from Italmoto’s expertise in electric scooters to improve performance during the 2021 season. With half the campaign already completed, Eric Granado and ONE Energy Racing have proven to be a powerful combination, achieving four consecutive E-Poles and two wins at Le Mans and Assen.
Johan Stigefelt – Team Director
“We are very proud to be partnered with Italmoto in One Energy Racing from this year. The MotoE project is very young, and it is a pleasure to see brands with a lot of history like Italmoto – founded in 1952 – get on board and trust us. That means we must be doing something right. Together we have already celebrated two victories so far this season, so I hope that we can celebrate great results until the end of the year and complete a great first season.
I have already had the chance to test the Italmoto Clodia and it is spectacular, agile, fast, comfortable and practical; I don’t think you could ask for more from an electric bike. I hope to be able to test other models soon.”
Mariano Negri – Italmoto CEO
“Associating our innovative products with the MotoE World Cup and ONE Energy Racing is for us a way to highlight our commitment to electric mobility. We are confident that fruitful collaborations can arise from this partnership and we are honored to be part of this great team.”
