New Italwin-Ducati pedal-assist bicycles: City Queen and City King

Two years after the introduction of the City Pearl bicycles, product of the partnership between Ducati and Italwin, the Padua-based bicycle manufacturer brings out two new Ducati pedal-assist bikes, City King and City Queen.

The men’s model City King and the women’s version City Queen, in light alloy and with a more erect riding position typical of city bikes, are available both with traditional external gear and an innovative internal gear featuring the iTorq® system.

iTorq is a power management system that combines the pluses of widely-used speed sensor systems with the advantages of more sophisticated torque sensor systems. Boasting high sensitivity and precision, iTorq offers levels of assist that vary the thrust from moderate to extremely high to meet any need. The system avoids the on-off effect between one pedal and another; it allows the rider to pedal at the speed best suited to the circumstances. Finally, accelerations can either be gentle, progressive or strong according to preference.

iTorq is also more efficient and quieter. Thanks to high-quality electronics and software, the bicycle has greater autonomy and the engine is virtually inaudible.

Tyres are also wider for greater comfort on bumpier roads or cobblestone and for making the bike safer in cities with trams.

The new electric bicycles will be offered in three elegant colours inspired by the legendary style of Ducati motorcycles: pearl white, Ducati red and metallic anthracite.

The Italwin-Ducati pedal-assist bicycles are available at Italwin dealers. For more information, please visit Italwin.it
