Ducati is getting into the e-bike game. Now it isn’t a new electric motorbike but a bicycle. Teaming up with Italian bike manufacturer Thok e-bikes to create an urban e-bike that takes inspiration from Ducati scramblers.
Fitted with a 504Wh Shimano battery pack and a 250W Shimano Steps E7000 motor with 60Nm of torque. There is no word on range as of yet but expect it to keep you going for a fair few miles. It is fitted with an 80mm Suntur XCR 34 spring-loaded fork and together with Sram Guide T-4 calipers brakes make the e-Scrambler the ideal bike for the city streets and to enjoy country roads. For the urban rider, the e-Scrambler has a luggage rack, mudguards, and lights whilst elements from mountain biking are featured such as a drop seat so that riders can sort their seat height on the go.
Painted in yellow and black, it reminds me of a JCB, and gives the impression of something sturdy that will keep working for years to come. Cost of the Ducati e-Scrambler? €3,699.
