Until now, it was not clear who will supply the electric motorcycles from 2023 for MotoE, a class for electric motorcycles that competes alongside MotoGP. There was also speculation as to whether several manufacturers might enter this class.

Ducati has now shed light on the matter, announcing that they will supply the unit bikes for MotoE. A contract has been signed that will run from 2023 to 2026.

Which motorcycle Ducati will provide is unknown so far, as they don’t have an electric motorcycle in their lineup yet. In the background, however, they have been developing appropriate bikes for some time.

Ducati also wants to use MotoE to advance the development of their product range. They see the biggest challenges in size, weight, range, battery and the availability of charging stations.

 

Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding: “We are proud of this agreement because, like all the first times, it represents a historic moment for our company. Ducati is always projected towards the future and every time it enters a new world, it does so to create the best performing product possible. This agreement comes at the right time for Ducati, which has been studying the situation of electric powertrains for years, because it will allow us to experiment in a well-known and controlled field like that of racing competition. We will work to make available to all participants of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup electric bikes that are high-performance and characterized by lightness. It is precisely on weight, a fundamental element of sports bikes, that the greatest challenge will be played out. Lightness has always been in Ducati’s DNA and thanks to the technology and chemistry of the batteries that are evolving rapidly we are convinced that we can obtain an excellent result. We test our innovations and our futuristic technological solutions on circuits all over the world and then make exciting and desirable products available to Ducatisti. I am convinced that once again we will build on the experiences we have had in the world of racing competition to transfer them and apply them also on production bikes.”

Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO Dorna Sports: “We are very proud to announce Ducati as the new, single manufacturer for the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup. With their incredible racing history, it is an honour to welcome this commitment from one of the best-known manufacturers in the paddock and to take on this new challenge together. We are eager to see what the future has in store and continue to watch this technology develop and grow, with the MotoGP paddock and MotoE continuing to drive innovation and evolution in the motorcycling industry – at the same time as creating an incredible on-track spectacle.”
