Motorcycles: new commercial agreement in Maryland and Mid-Atlantic.

Energica Motor Company S.p.A.
continues to expand in the United States: a new commercial agreement with CYCLEMAX in the significant mid-Atlantic
region, encompassing the nation’s capital, has just been signed. This new Energica motorcycle dealer in Gaithersburg,
Maryland will delight riders in the area who have been asking that Energica open
a retail presence within easy distance.

The Metro DC area where CYCLEMAX is
situated is one of the strongest for EV in the U.S. According to Plug-In
America, Maryland has 11,144 EV vehicles and Virginia another 9,669 with a
growth rate last year of 48.5% and 36.1% respectively. Both states have ambitions plans to grow EV
use and the EV charging infrastructure, benefiting not only electric car
owners, but also Energica owners.

Maryland is committed to increasing
the number of charging stations from 1,500 to over 5,000 in the next three
years to accommodate 300,000 EV in the state by 2025. Maryland is also a
“Section 177” state adhering to the CARB standards set by California for ZEV to
become at least 8% of all passenger vehicles by 2025. Virginia likewise plans to reach 15% EV
penetration of all vehicles in operation by 2027 – with the charging network to

“We know that riders have exactly the
same concern that drivers do about range and the placement of charging
stations. In fact, this is the #1
barrier to EV purchase by consumers. Since our bikes will travel for more than 100
miles on a single charge, the challenge is the number of places to charge: especially
DC Fast Chargers that Energica alone of all electric motorcycles is currently able
to use.” stated Stefano Benatti, CEO,
Energica Motor Company Inc.
“The massive build-out of charging stations planned
for the mid-Atlantic region is a very encouraging development for our future

CYCLEMAX is ideally suited to take
advantage of this imminent expansion of electric into the two-wheeled segment. The
dealer has sold EV2 since 2015 and is already perhaps the biggest seller of
electric motorcycles on the East Coast. In
addition, CYCLEMAX is bounded on all sides by four of the top 10 counties in
the U.S., including Howard County in Maryland and Loudoun, Fairfax and Arlington
Counties in Virginia. These two states
and DC together have over 320,172 registered motorcycle owners, about 3.7% of
all riders in the U.S. Ten of the 25 top counties in the U.S. for household
income, plus the whole southern tier of Pennsylvania including Philadelphia,
are also in easy reach of the dealership.

“What I love about electric isn’t
just the ecological benefit of zero emissions. It’s the amazing acceleration
and absolutely linear torque,” says Donald Figliozzi, Owner
of CYCLEMAX. “And with Energica I’m now able to
introduce a high performanceelectric
motorcycle that every motorcycle enthusiast needs to experience.”

Donald adds: “Ever since I
convinced my parents to get me a Yamaha MX80 motorcycle when I
was just six years old, I’ve loved the excitement of going
fast on two wheels. Many years later, after riding all types of gas
motorcycles I now have a new level of excitement riding electric motorcycles.
Most people don’t realize that riding electric is a completely different
riding experience all together, the first ride always exceeds expectations. It
enhances your senses where it matters most, the ride itself.”


CYCLEMAX has been
serving Washington Metro area riders since 2010 and is currently a
leading electric motorcycle dealer in the Mid Atlantic
area. Starting with motorcycle service in 2010, CYCLEMAX has
experienced exponential growth, becoming a motorcycle dealer in 2013.

Founder Donald Figliozzi fell
in love with the idea of riding motorcycles at the tender age of six
when he noticed a small dirt bike through the windows of a local motorcycle
dealership near his home town of Potomac, Maryland. Fascinated and determined
to ride he talked his parents into buying him a Yamaha MX80 dirt bike. At
the same time, he influenced his father to buy a Yamaha 750. Ever since,
Donald has followed his passion for riding motorcycles both off road and
street. Over the last few years his interest in popularizing no-emission
electric motorcycles has helped to make CYCLEMAX a destination motorcycle
dealer in Maryland.
