Having owned Ducati motorcycles I think I'll pass........can you say high maintenance? They do look good parked in front of a Starbucks. The only worse motorcycle I owned was a Moto Guzzi, they'll be next with an ebike, it will look like a tractor.
"can you say high maintenance?"-Sounds like my ex-girlfriend! I'll also pass. LOL!

On Sunday 4 November 2018 the Ducati World Première in Milan unveiled the new Ducati e-mtb, the MIG-RR, an enduro born out of close collaboration with the Italian company Thok Ebikes.

Follow the link for photos and the press release.
Here is updated information from Electrek on the new Ducati mountain Ebikes... ;)


The latest is a set of three new Ducati electric bicycles that were just unveiled at a Ducati event in Italy.
Ducati is no stranger to electric bikes. But these aren’t your standard sub $1,000 intro-level e-bikes we’re talking about here. These are premium-level vehicles.


I was fortunate enough to be in attendance when the company showed off its MIG-RR electric mountain bike at the EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show last year. The MIG-RR helped the company get its foot in the door of the premium electric bicycle market.
Now Ducati’s most recent announcement has added three new premium electric bicycles to the company’s lineup. These new Ducati electric bicycles are intended for both on and off-road use and feature Shimano mid-drive motor systems.

The first is the Ducati MIG-RR Limited Edition, of which only 50 units will be produced. The bikes will be assembled in Italy and feature premium Ohlins suspension, carbon wheel rims, electronic shifting and will include special Ducati Corse graphics, designed by Aldo Drudi’s D-Perf.

Next up in the line comes the Ducati MIG-S, which is a more standard electric mountain bike. Without the motorcycle-level suspension and the electronic shifting found on the MIG-RR Limited Edition, the MIG-S is likely to be more reasonably priced.

The final Ducati electric bicycle in the unveiling is the Ducati e-Scrambler, which the company describes as a trekking bike. It will feature high-end components and should feel at home both on city streets or country roads, according to Ducati.


But if you thought that Ducati was designing and building these electric bikes from the ground up, think again. The Ducati electric bicycles are being produced as part of a partnership with Thok E-bikes, with Ducati lending its legendary design credentials to Thok’s experience in e-bike design.

Sorry but I am not impressed with this bike at all.

It's just a Shimano STEPs powered eMTB, what's so different about this Ducati eMTB compare to Haibike, Trek or Giant eMTB?

I was expecting Ducati to beat something like Haibike Flyon. :confused:

Ducati is world's renown motorcycle manufacture, producing bikes like Panigale and Multistrada.

I'd expect Ducati Desmodromic Derailleur, Electronic Quick Shifter, Skyhook Electronic Semi-Active Susension, 3 Level Cornering ABS, Ride Mode Selector, etc. (Just some examples)

When reading the specs on the Scrambler I find it a little funny the only pieces with Ducati brand are the seat and the grips...an old joke one ends with “grab your as and kiss it good bye” , you could do that with these specialized parts in some way lol

I agree it would be nice to see more innovative features and suspect this is just the start for Ducati... ;)


The Ducati MIG-RR, which will make its public debut on the Ducati stand at EICMA 2018 (Fiera Milano Rho, 8-11 November), is a true high-end e-mtb developed by Thok Ebikes specialists in close collaboration with Aldo Drudi’s D-Perf and the Ducati Design Center.

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 170 mm at the front, 27.5″ and 160 mm at the rear) make it a true enduro that meets the needs of even the most demanding rider.

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 battery is positioned underneath the down tube. The resulting low barycentre makes the Ducati MIG-RR an easy-to-ride yet precise bike even on the toughest terrain.
