Energica Motor, an Italian manufacturer of supersport all-electric motorcycles, unveiled a new version of its flagship Eva battery-powered bike: ‘Midnight Racer’.

Apache Custom Motorcycles, a company Energica already worked with for their production bikes, got their hands on it and turned it into an electric café racer.
