Ducati has now launched an electric MOUNTAIN bike

Ducati has partnered up with Thok Ebikes to create an electric mountain bike

Ducati e-bike full side view

Meet the new Ducati MIG-RR, the marque’s first e-mtb or e-bike. Yes, a Ducati that swaps internal combustion punch for mountain bike pedals and electric power.

Ducati has partnered up with Thok Ebikes to create this boosted electric mountain bike. It promises to help you take on hills that you’d otherwise have to avoid on a pedal-only machine. They’re no cop-outs: some hardcore mountain bikers swear by e-mtbs, as it means they can run more downhills without getting exhausted climbing back up them…

The Ducati electric bicycle is a derivation of the Thok MIG series, but features a selection of unique features. Different diameter wheels and different degrees of suspension travel (29″ and 170 mm at the front, 27.5″ and 160 mm at the rear) make it a more versatile proposition.

Ducati e-bike going downhill

Fox Factory Kashima suspension, carbon fibre handlebars, 4-caliper S brakes, an 11-speed gear set and Mavic wheels make for superb spec reading. The electric motor is the E8000 from Shimano, putting out 250 watts powered by a 504 Wh battery.

It’s to make its public debut on the Ducati stand at the EICMA (Milan Motorcycle Shows) from the 8th to the 11th of November. There’s no word on price yet but the MIG-RR should be available from Ducati dealerships throughout Europe from spring 2019.
