I just got this in from my friends at the CRP Group – the Home Planet for eCRP and the Energica. Here’s the official press release:
Destination USA. The CRP Group among the protagonists at the 2013 Italian year in the United States.
A trip that lasts 12 months aimed at promoting the excellence of made-in-Italy in occasion of the 2013 Italian year in the United States.
The CRP Group will be part of the venue with a state-of-the-art project: the realization of ENERGICA, the first Italian electric streetbike with F1 technologies and materials.
Once again the Italian making is recognized worldwide for its creativity and innovation that have led to the construction of a real jewel of sustainable technology. Energica can be considered the expression of outstanding business genius that the organizers of Italy in US have decided to have in the program of the events dedicated to Italy in US. CRP Group and CRP USA are in the section Italian Creativity and Technology which is devoted to companies that work in high performing sectors.
Mr Stewart Davis, Director of Operations of CRP USA will held the workshop entitled “Energica, the first made-in-Italy electric motorcycle, and high performance 3D Printing materials.

The workshop will illustrate the engineering and creation of the electric superbike where 3D Printing, laser sintering materials have been used. The lecture is scheduled on September 10th at 6.00 pm at the Italian Culture Institute of New York. It’s not by chance that the workshop will be held in the “big apple” , the capital of innovation and high-tech worldwide.
Reinforced composite materials called Windform, 3D Printing and cutting edge cnc machining are at the basis of the two wheel e-motorcycle by CRP . Pleased to be in cradle of the American dream the Italian Culture Institute of New York will be the stage of the new Italian workmanship.
