Although the brand does not yet have a single electric street motorcycle, the Italians are now focusing on a racing prototype and if we are to believe the first images, it is worth it.


In the dynamic video, shot at the Vallelunga circuit, the Ducati MotoE motorcycle is in the hands of former World Championship rider Alex De Angelis, who participated in the 2019 edition of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup and who is very familiar with this world.
De Angelis has officially joined the development team, whose test drivers also include the experienced Michele Pirro, the first person to ride the prototype.

The path that will lead the motorcycle manufacturer from Borgo Panigale to the role of sole supplier of motorcycles for the FIM Enel MotoE ™ World Cup (the electric class of the MotoGP ™ World Championship) from the 2023 season continues with great enthusiasm both on the circuit as in Borgo Panigale, thanks to the teamwork involving many business units.
The “V21L” prototype is the result of the close collaboration and constant exchange of know-how between Ducati Corse and product R&D to create a motorcycle that is both very high-performing and with a lightweight benchmark target for an electric motorcycle.

The MotoE project is undoubtedly an important step in the company's history, as it marks the start of Ducati's electric era.

In the coming months, the Borgo Panigale manufacturer will share more information with the world about the technical evolution of the motorcycle and the next steps related to this fascinating and ambitious project.
