These Ducati electric scooters come from the partnership between Ducati and MT Distribution have motors from 250W to 500W. While the e-bikes are equipped with 250W motors (the maximum value stipulated by law for this type of vehicle).
They also announced that the entire line will be available for purchase during 2020! Ducati also announced that some models of the scooters and e-bikes will also be available at Ducati dealers and Ducati Online Shop very soon.
The New Ducati Electric Scooter
The first two Ducati e scooters to be presented on the market are called Cross-E and Pro II. The electric scooters will roll out on June 20 and July 6, 2020, respectively.
The Ducati Scrambler branded Cross-E scooter is more of an off-road scooter. The Cross-E comes with so-called “fat” anti-puncture tubeless tyres (size 110/50-6.5”), which are also suitable for stretches of dirt or very uneven roads. The 500W brushless motor guarantees excellent pick-up both at the start and on uphill sections, without undergoing any slowdown in pace. Furthermore, the 375 Wh battery guarantees an autonomy of up to 30-35 km! While maintaining an average speed of 15 km/h.
On top of this, the sturdiness of the frame gives maximum stability and riding comfort. The Cross-E also comes with double front headlight; this allows the use of the vehicle at night with excellent visibility. The E boasts 3 riding modes which can be selected through the large 3.5” LCD display.
Pro II Specs
The Pro II, branded by Ducati, instead mounts a 350W continuous brushless motor and a 280 Wh battery. This allows the rider to cover 25-30 km in full comfort. On top of this, thanks to the rear suspension and the 10” puncture-proof tubeless tyres it further improves the quality of the ride. The PRO II scooter has a double brake; electric front and rear disc to ensure safety. On top of this, the large 3.5” LCD display helps the rider monitor and manage all the settings.
The New e-bike
During the design and development of the products Ducati Design Centre also collaborated with Italdesign for the folding e-bikes. The result is an innovative collection with an attractive design.
In the case of the folding e-bikes, they will be launched on the market in the coming weeks. The e-bike will have an innovative design and will be equipped with rear lights integrated in the seat post, a battery that is completely hidden in the frame and activation of the lights with twilight sensors. Aside from this, there are no other technical information on the e-bike yet.
