Electric motorcycle brand Energica to open its first dealership in New York

0


The Italian manufacturer of electric motorcycles and one of our favorite outsiders for Energica is expanding its presence in the United States. He opens his first dealership in New England bringing his brand to Hudson Valley Motorcycles, a dealership in Ossining, New York, which currently sells Ducati, Kawasaki, Suzuki and the electric off-road motorcycle brand Alta Motors. The next closest Energica dealership to New England is in Raleigh, NC, so Hudson Valley Motorcycles will take care of pretty much the entire Northeast region.

According to Energica, New York has the fifth highest number of motorcyclists of any state in the United States, and more than four percent of all motorcycles sold in the United States in 2017 were sold in the Empire State. It is also the second largest market for electric vehicles (the largest obviously being California) having seen massive growth in the popularity of electric vehicles over the past year.

Another big advantage of having Energicas available for sale in New York is the fact that the state has a strong infrastructure of electric vehicles and is growing stronger. It currently has the fourth-highest number of charging stations of any state, and Governor Cuomo has an ambitious plan to add 10,000 to its current number of around 2,400.

As Energica motorcycles can only travel about 100 miles on a full charge, the infrastructure of the charging stations has a big influence on where the brand decides to locate its dealers. “The massive construction of charging stations planned in New York makes this state a rival to California as a market for electric motorcycles,” Stefano Benatti, CEO of Energica, said in a statement.

So if you’re a New England cyclist interested in the impending electric motorcycle revolution, Zero is no longer your only option for an electric bike you can buy locally.
