Back in December Ducati announced that they were testing their first-ever electric motorcycle with plans to replace Energica and become the sole manufacturer for the MotoE World Cup beginning in 2023.
This new video below shows it in action for the first time. Shot on the Vallelunga race track just north of Rome and ridden by championship rider Alex De Angelis, it displays all the action and intensity of a dynamic racing electric motorcycle.
Says Roberto Canè, director of the project, “Ever since we took the Ducati MotoE prototype to the track for the first time, development work on the project has never stopped, not even for a moment. The hard work of the whole team is paying off for the efforts made through continuous progress, which is giving us great satisfaction. In just four months, our prototype has already tackled the curves of some of the main Italian circuits, providing positive responses. There is still a lot of work to do, but the direction is certainly the right one”.
The project is an important step for Ducati going forward as it represents the start of the Ducati electric era. We’ll be watching the progress with bated breath and wallets ready for when these hit the production line.Learn More
