Starting next year, Ducati will be supplying its bikes to the MotoE, the electric class of the World Championship. The prototype from Borgo Panigale is already in an advanced state of development and tests are continuing non stop.
A video was posted today (see above), taken on the Vallelunga track, where the Ducati MotoE was ridden by former World Championship rider Alex De Angelis, who took part in the 2019 edition of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup and who’s really familiar with this racing world. The rider from San Marino officially joins the development team, and Michele Pirro, who’s one of the testers, will be the first to ride the prototype.
The Borgo Panigale motorcycle constructor is on the right path towards becoming the sole supplier of motorcycles for the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup starting from the 2023 season. They’re doing it with great enthusiasm, both on the track and in the company, thanks to teamwork that's involving numerous corporate areas.
The "V21L" prototype stems from a close collaboration and continuous exchange of ideas between Ducati Corse and product R&D, in order to create a motorcycle that is both highly performing and light, and will be a reference point for electric motorcycles.
The MotoE project is an important step in the company's history, since it represents the beginning of Ducati's electric era. Over the next few months, Borgo Panigale will be sharing further information on the technical evolution of the bike and the subsequent steps of this fascinating and ambitious project.
