“It’s good that they are going their own way, even though I know they have our bikes in their factory that they are studying.”
The article also states that Ducati’s MotoE project is “a joint venture between Ducati Corse and Ducati R&D designers, led by Ducati eMobility Director Roberto Canè,” with the current focus being on the production of a cooling system for the bike.
“Testing the MotoE prototype on the circuit was a great thrill because it marks the beginning of an important chapter in Ducati history,” says Pirro.
“The bike is light and already has a good balance. Furthermore, the throttle connection in the first opening phase and the ergonomics are very similar to those of a MotoGP bike. If it weren’t for the silence and for the fact that in this test, we decided to limit the power output to just 70% of performance, I could easily have imagined that I was riding my bike.”
We have no doubt that Ducati will have their own stamp of authenticity on this machine in one way or another as we continue further down the journey toward full electrification for 2023’s MotoE.
