Ducati Custom V4 Streetfighter With Rumors Of More?

Ducati Custom V4 Streetfighter With Rumors Of More? Custom naked Panigale might be a sign of things to come. When I first saw this headline, I thought Ducati itself had created a Panigale-platform streetfighter and, well, let’s just say I needed a moment alone. Alas! Not so!

We heard whispers about a Ducati scooter project…we didn’t think it’d be built in Nanjing.

Back in January, Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali remarked, “the future is electric and we’re not far from beginning production of the series”. With seemingly every manufacturer getting in on the EV trade, we took Claudio’s statement very seriously. Perhaps too seriously, since we finally got word of Ducati's electric project and it isn't quite what we expected. Rather than developing its own electric model, or even its own electric powertrain, the Italian firm has instead opted to go into business with Vmoto, a Chinese purveyor of electric bikes and scooters and the parent company of Super Soco.

Harley-Davidson’s 2 Electric Concept Bikes Are Ready And Riding

Harley-Davidson’s 2 Electric Concept Bikes Are Ready And Riding Riding videos show Harley’s lightweight concept bikes are potentially ready for prime time All the buzz of late has been on the bold new LiveWire, but what if we’re missing the forest for the trees? What if LiveWire is a smokescreen? There’s huge value in producing a striking high-tech electric motorcycle as a statement model, but let’s consider who this bike is for. It just doesn’t feel like a viable option for younger Gen X or Gen Y types with high debt-to-income ratios and, form-wise, feels too intimidating for beginning riders.

Instead of collaborating on an e-scoot, Vmoto jazzed up its existing CUx electric scooter, slapped on Ducati logos and branding, and called it the “CUx Special Edition Ducati”. At its heart is a 60V/32Ah lithium battery paired with a 2,700-watt Bosch motor. The battery—which has a 3.5-hour “fast charge” time—provides a 46-mile (or 75km) range and can be removed for charging. Vmoto claims that the battery uses the same technology as found in the Tesla Model S.

Other features on the CUx SED include multiple ride modes, remote keys that also unlock the under-seat storage compartment, LED lighting, built-in (forward-facing) camera, and assorted other high-tech bits. The scooter is being touted as a “luxury version” of the CUx, which will in turn command a “luxury price”. While there’s no word on performance specs, it appears the SED-spec won’t deviate from the existing 2019 CUx’s powertrain, which means a 3.75hp lump capable of getting up to 29mph (or 45km/h).

Ducati Extremes—Diavel 1260 And MIG-RR

Ducati Extremes—Diavel 1260 And MIG-RR Production begins on two Ducatis that couldn’t be more different. Ducati is always full of surprises, and we love her for that. These days the Bologna-based company is about to put on the market what appears to be two models set at the opposite extremes of the two-wheeled vehicle world. On one side, off the Borgo Panigale assembly lines are rolling the first units of the new edition Diavel 1260, the meanest, most powerful cruiser from Bologna. Unveiled at EICMA 2018, the new Diavel is a more “Ducatized” interpretation of the power cruiser theme.

Even though Europe is ripe with scooters zipping around its streets, the variety and options for all- electric scooters don’t come close to matching those of gas scooters . That may not be the case for long though, as an increasing number of electric scooter options are becoming available every month.

While Vmoto is responsible for building the Italian-flavored scoots, Ducati is taking care of the marketing and branding of its “first electric (sorta) model”. The electric two-wheelers will be sold via Vmoto’s existing network of retailers; so don’t expect to see these on Ducati showroom floors. On top of selling product, it appears Vmoto also aims to bolster its presence in the EU market in general.

It is worth mentioning that the Volkswagen Group—Ducati’s parent company—has the goal of bringing all of its properties into the EV game by 2030 under its “Roadmap E Program”. So an actual electric Ducati is already an inevitability within the next decade, though based on the growing popularity of the two-wheeled EV sector, the Bologna-based brand will almost certainly tap into said market within the next couple model years. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised to see an electric Ducati concept come EICMA.
