Motorcycle giant Ducati has entered the electric bike world with the help of Bianchi who have manufactured the four Bosch-powered builds, among other pedal-powered bikes.
Speaking to CyclingIndustry.News at Spin London, Guy Wheeler of UK distributor Brandistro said: “This, the e-MTB, is the only one in the UK at present, though we’re taking pre-orders for any interested stockists. The Ducati range goes beyond e-bikes, there’s actually 18 bikes to choose from.”
Available to both Ducati dealers and independent bike shops, the catalogue spans junior bikes, MTBs, ‘sport’ and E-bikes, of which there are low step over builds, flat-bar road and the £2,500 ‘400’ build pictured below.
Featured at the show alongside a flat-bar road build, the e-MTB is largely manufactured by fellow Italian bike makers Bianchi. As with the other electric bikes in the range, a Bosch mid-motor provides the assistance.
