With EVs being the new in-thing in the automotive world, most people only seem to know about updates and new models of cars, but the two-wheeled side of that world is just as busy with motorbike (or will that just be bike now?) manufacturers also in a race to have electric bikes on the global market as soon as possible. With cars there’s always been a bit of an easier job to have things electrified, the weight of the batteries needed to give the cars a decent range is a lot easier to spread over a wide chassis. The hard part for two wheels is having a battery pack light enough to keep the bike manoeuvrable while having enough range for at least a normal daily commute. Some bike makers are working hard at this, and it seems as though the Italian outfit Ducati is far enough along in their R&D to be able to unveil their V21L eBike prototype that will eventually be campaigned on track in the futuristic MotoE class.
We can't wait to see the bike in action making use of all of that power, and also how it will compare to the electrification of bikes by other manufacturers. We'll also be quite interested in rider feedback, we have many questions... How does an eBike handle without a centrifugal force? How does regen braking affect the handling? Can you easily sustain a wheelie? These things are important to know!
