Ducati MotoE Bike
THE DUCATI PROTOTYPE THAT WILL RACE IN the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup from 2023 has completed its first laps on the track at Misano. Starting from the 2023 season, the Borgo Panigale motorcycle manufacturer will be the sole supplier of motorcycles for the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, which is the electric class of the MotoGP World Championship. Ducati is calling the prototype “V21L”. This is the result of the joint work of the Ducati Corse team and the Ducati R&D engineers, led by Roberto Canè, Ducati eMobility Director. The bike was taken out on track by Michele Pirro, official Ducati rider and test rider to evaluate the technical characteristics and potential of Ducati’s first electric motorcycle. They say that the most important challenges in the development of an electric racing motorcycle remain related to the size, weight, and range of the batteries. Ducati’s goal is to make electric motorcycles that are high-performance and characterised by their lightness. They also revealed that they will be working on an electric vehicle for road use that is sporty, light, exciting, and able to satisfy all enthusiasts.
