In 2017, Managing Director of Ducati Western Europe, Edouard Lotthé had said that they are deciding to manufacture an electric motorbike and scooter by 2021. Now, the plan is confirmed as the company’s CEO, Claudio Domenicali has given a statement in which he affirmed Ducati’s promise to build electric bike. At Motostudent event, Spain, Ducati’s CEO said, “The future is electric, we’re not far from starting series production,”
Not only Ducati, but there are also many other automotive makers such as Energica Motor Company, Zero Motorcycle, Evoke Motorcycles, TVS and Bajaj, who are already on the list of making electric bikes. So, it is no surprise that the famous Italian automotive maker is also on the list. Although, this is not the first electric two-wheeler of the company as they have already made such concepts. If you follow Ducati, then you might have heard about Ducati Zero electric superbike concept and Ducati Mig-RR.
Claudio Domenicali was recently seen with a Ducati Hypermotard (electric version) which is built in partnership with Milan Polytechnic School of Design that also featured Zero FX motor. Ducati Zero concept is exclusively developed by Bart Heijt and Fernando Pastre of the Scuola Politecnia di Design in Italy. So, it will be exciting to see the next EV concept of Ducati. Harley-Davidson has already revealed the concept in this segment known as LiveWire.
The EV’s from Ducati will be the most awaiting model if the performance will be the same as the Zero concept. The company has not revealed anything about the upcoming concept, but it will be great if the company collaborate with the performance electric bike maker, Energica (headquarters in Modena, Italy). It is also in a deal with the MotoE World Cup, with its Energica Ego Corsa supersport which is experimented during the year at demo laps in MotoGP Calendar.
