Energica Motorcycles: New Commercial Agreement in New York and the Northeast U.S.

MODENA, Italy–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Energica?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Energicalt;/agt;–Energica Motor Company S.p.A. continues to expand in the United States:
a new commercial agreement with Hudson Valley Motorcycles in the
significant market of New York State and the Northeast
Region of the U.S. has just been signed.

New York has the fifth largest number of motorcyclists in the U.S., with
over 392,771 registered street bikes in 2017. According to Plug-In

“The attraction of electric for avid riders is the immediate
acceleration and absolutely linear torque,” says Richie Alexander,
General Manager for Hudson Valley Motorcycles. “We have a deep
