He was more than a little impressed – and with good reason.
According to Electrek, a new spec sheet shows Ducati’s zero-emission circuit contender sports 110kW/147hp of power, with potential for up to 140Nm/103lb-ft of yank, blasting the machine to top speeds of a purported 275km-h/171mph.
Apparently, ‘the battery and motor/inverter share a double circuit liquid-cooling system.’ This was a major hurdle for the Italian bike brand, and their success means that the V21L can yoink into the sunset at optimal high-performance levels, for longer periods, ‘without being forced to throttle back due to heat build-up.’
With Ducati having also confirmed production of at least 18 V21Ls for the 2023 FIM MotoE (and another article off Electrek showing that “the technology learned through [MotoE] will be utilized for future street motorcycles”), we’re expecting the brand to be more than a little busy next year.
Drop a comment below letting us know what you think; with the V21L showing off a nice power-to-weight ratio, how do you feel it will fare next racing season?
