Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. The Italian superbike manufacturer has jumped into the personal mobility game with a company called MT Distribution, and the results are pretty impressive—not too much of a surprise considering Ducati Design Center was responsible for curating the look of these two units you see before you.
First off, we have the Ducati Scrambler Cross-E with ‘fat’ anti-puncture 6.5-inch tubeless tires and a 500W electric motor powered by a 375Wh battery. The robust frame supposedly provides great stability and comfort, and it comes with three riding modes, too, which you can toggle on the 3.5-inch LCD display alongside other pertinent information. This unit has a range of up to 35km and a top speed of 15kph.
Next up, the Pro II. This one comes equipped with larger 10-inch puncture-proof tubeless tires and gets a rear suspension. It runs on a 350W electric motor and a 280Wh battery, and its maximum range is pegged at 30km. Strangely, the top speed of this model isn’t provided.
The Cross-E and Pro II will officially launch on June 6 and July 20, respectively. If electric kick scooters aren’t your thing, Ducati says it will be launching folding e-bikes in the coming weeks featuring innovative designs and batteries hidden inside the frame. Would you buy any of these if they’re made available in the Philippines?
