Ducati Releases First Electric Model...A Chinese Scooter

Ducati Releases First Electric Model...A Chinese Scooter 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.

Ducati's Streetfighter V4 is meant to be, in all ways, a shot across the bow of Aprilia, which has long been the only player in the V4 hyper-naked bike segment. The Tuono is a wild machine but one that's surprisingly easy to ride, while Ducati's Streetfighter prototype seems like it might be anything but, at least in prototype form.

While the rider-friendliness of the Streetfighter has yet to be established, one thing is extremely clear from the video of the Streetfighter testing that Ducati released on Thursday ahead of its assault on Pikes Peak -- it's fast. Really, really fast.

Electric Ducati? We're All Dying For It

Electric Ducati? We're All Dying For It This, though? This isn't it.

We don't know a ton about the Streetfighter yet, apart from the fact that it's based directly on the completely batty V4 Panigale superbike, only with less bodywork and naked bike-specific aero. We imagine that the Streetfighter might give up a few of the superbike's 215 horsepower up top for a fatter midrange, as is common with this style of motorcycle, but that's just speculation at this point.

This prototype of Ducati's forthcoming Streetfighter V4 will make its public debut at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

What we do know for sure is that the Streetfighter's attempt at setting a speed record during the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is going to be loud and scary, and that's why I'm going to Colorado to check it out in person.

Sweet 2015 Ducati 1299 Panigale S Only Has 974 Miles.
This is the superbike you’ve been looking for. Some motorcycles just scream to be ridden hard. This 2015 Ducati 1299 Panigale S is just such a bike. It’s fast, handles well, and lives up to the legend of the Ducati name. What’s more, this superbike has been lauded for returning Ducati to its former glory Of course, one of the shining stars is the 1285cc Superquadro engine, like what the 1199 S used, but with some big changes. This has a 112mm bore, and to balance that out there are 116mm pistons, steel liners, new rods, and a new crankshaft with precision steel balancing inserts.
