The prototype of the MotoE, named “V21L”, was born from the close collaboration and constant comparison between Ducati Corse and product R&D to create a bike that is both highly performing and with a target of lightness as a reference for an electric motorcycle.
The project MotoE it is undoubtedly an important step in Ducati's history as it represents the beginning of Ducati's electric era. Over the next few months, the Borgo Panigale manufacturer will share further information on the technical evolutions of the bike and on the subsequent steps concerning this fascinating and ambitious project.
