Before you get too excited thinking that the iconic Italian motorcycle manufacturer had released a radical new electric motorbike… it’s actually an electric mountain bike that has been revealed to the world this week. Nevertheless, this thing looks cool.
Ducati's new e-mtb is called the MIG-RR and is set up for enduro style riding.

Known as the MIG-RR, the bike is the result of a collaboration between Ducati and Thok Ebikes, an Italian pioneer of electrically assisted mountain bikes, and is set to be first displayed at the upcoming Milan Motorcycle Show (EICMA 2018).

The bike is set-up for Enduro racing- which consists of timed downhill descents combined with non-timed uphill climbs. So, the added electric motor means that riders will be able to save their energy and focus for challenging downhill sections of races.
The MIG-RR's Shimano electric motor allows riders to access trails they normally wouldn't be able to manage.

With regards to the technical specifications of this high-end bike, Ducati provides the following details:

‘While the new Ducati e-mtb is an offshoot of the popular MIG series produced by Thok, it features some unique technical solutions: wheels with different diameters and suspension set-ups with different degrees of wheel travel (29” and 170mm at the front, 27.5” and 160mm at the rear) make it a true enduro that meets the needs of even the most demanding rider’.
The Ducati MIG-RR is dripping with high-end components and is certainly one of the most desirable e-mtbs on the market.

With high-level components such as FOX Factory Kashima suspension, carbon fibre Renthal handlebars, Mavic wheels, 4-caliper Shimano Saint brakes and an 11-speed Shimano XT gear set, the MIG-RR features a Shimano Steps E8000 motor- which puts out 250 Watts with a torque of 70N – powered by a 504 Wh battery.

The Ducati MIG-RR is expected to be available to purchase throughout Europe from Spring 2019.

I am a Ducati fan, Motorbike owner, and like all things Ducati, but know from experience, will be expensive. One normal nut and bolt will be $1 the same thing in a Ducati, packet, will be $10, you know what to expect.
