Ducati’s most affordable bike is electric
Ducati has introduced its first electric bike though it’s not a motorcycle.
Called the e-Scrambler, the bike is a collaboration between Ducati and Thok Ebikes, and has been designed for urban and country use.
The pedal-assisted trekking bike – which will be sold through Ducati dealers and at Ducati.com – is an ‘urban ready’ aluminium e-bike with a 250-Watt Shimano Steps E7000 motor paired with a Sram NX 11-speed gearbox.
Power comes from a 504Wh battery which is mounted on the downtube. The bike also comes with Pirelli Cycl-e GT tyres, Sram 4-piston brakes,rear luggage rack, mudguards, a stand and turn signal lights.
Ducati says the bike maintains a low centre of gravity and similar frame geometry to a conventional bike and has very similar ride characteristics.
Though, like all Ducatis it isn’t cheap. The e-Scrambler costs €3,699 and is available at ducati.com/uk.
