Ducati Released Two New Folding Model Of Bicycles

Ducati may not have a consumer electric motorcycle yet (and there are hardly any electric motorcycles for racing), but the company can’t stop rolling out smaller two-wheelers. For example, Ducati has just launched two new folding electric bicycles.

Both e-bike models are released under Ducati’s Scrambler brand, which has become a heavyweight lifestyle brand in recent years. Ducati Motorcycles has used it before to fold e-bikes and seems to be sticking with its gun with the latest recently launched models. The new SCR-X and SCR-E GT are both fat-tire folding electric bikes that use a rear hub Bafang 60Nm engine to provide power.

The 48V system on both bikes typically has a higher wattage, but the EU-based company was forced to limit the speed of the e-bikes to just 25 km/h (15 mph) to comply with regulations. local regulations on electric bicycles.

The SCR-E GT is more road-oriented and comes with 20-inch road tires matched to wire wheels. The 500Wh battery is said to offer 80km of range and is removable for charging the bike. Considering the pedal-assisted nature of these e-bikes, this is probably a reasonable range. On the other hand, the SCR-X is the most trail-oriented e-bike of them all. While both bikes come with a front suspension, the SCR-E GT has a rear suspension, spike tires and mag rims, which will perform better in more extreme off-road conditions.

A larger battery with a capacity of 614 Wh will also provide more stored energy, which is important for e-bikes used in more extreme off-road conditions that often require more battery power.
The SCR-X uses a step frame that makes it easier for riders to get on the bike without swinging their feet over the high saddle, while the SCR-E GT uses a step frame instead. Riders can expect the two new models to hit the market later this month at Ducati dealers and online, though the company has yet to reveal pricing details.

These two new models follow some of Ducati’s entry into the e-bike market. The motor company first launched an electric mountain bike in 2018 through a partnership with THOK Bikes, marking the company’s first electric two-wheeler.

At the time, Ducati was introducing an electric motorcycle of its future, but was still looking for reasons why the company would not be able to develop an electric motorcycle for many years.
The company followed up with several other e-MTB models in 2019. In 2020, Ducati competed with electric folding electric bicycles and produced some interesting models with relatively new features like lights. in the frame. Ducati continues to release new e-MTBs in 2020, improving the performance and quality of electric bikes.

In early 2022, the company launched its first electric bike designed for the high-end racing bike consumer. This bike also comes with a Ducati-sized price tag, asking for €7,690 (about $8,020). Ducati may have made more strides on the e-bike front than its e-bike segment, but recently, Ducati has also been in the news. Earlier this month, Ducati revealed the specifications of its V21L electric racing prototype, which will be the only model used in next season’s FIM MotoE series. Ducati has confirmed that it will produce at least 18 units for the 2023 season of the FIM MotoE racing series. Each V21L electric motorcycle will be capable of producing 110 kW (147 hp) and 140 Nm (103 lb-ft) of torque.

This car is said to hit a top speed of 275 km/h (171 mph) at a test lap in Mugello, Italy. Despite carrying a rather bulky 18 kWh battery pack, Ducati was able to reduce the weight of the V21L prototype to just 225 kg (496 lb). It’s still a heavy bike, but it’s a lot heavier than the 282 kg (621 lb) Energica Ego electric motorcycle it will replace from the 2023 season.

While Ducati may have spent years towing electric two-wheelers, it’s hard to argue that the company hasn’t kept pace with a flurry of big announcements. What do you think of Ducati’s progress in the field of electric vehicles? And what do you think the perforamance of Ducati Moctorcycles Philippines? We are glad to see your comments below.
