2023: year zero

The future is here. The new Ducati MotoE

As of the 2023 season, Ducati will be the sole official supplier of bikes competing in the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup, the electric class of the MotoGP™ World Championship. This marks the start of a new and electrifying chapter in the Ducati racing history books.

Ducati aims to supply every competitor in the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup with an electric bike that is high performance and stands out for its light weight. In addition to achieving optimum performance, the project seeks to contain the weight of the bike and ensure consistent power delivery throughout the course of the race, thanks also to the development of a suitable cooling system.

The racetrack becomes a laboratory for the development of expertise and solutions that will become reality for all motorcyclists. The goal, as soon as technology permits, is to study just how to build an electric Ducati vehicle that is sporty, lightweight, exciting, and able to satisfy all enthusiasts.

Roberto Canè, Ducati eMobility Director

“We’re living in extraordinary times. I’m struggling to believe that this is reality and not still a dream! The first electric Ducati to take to the track is exceptional not only because it is unique, but also for the feat it represents, a challenge in terms of both its performance goals and very limited timeframe. And this is what makes the work done by the project’s entire team so incredible. Today’s result is ample reward for all the effort made over recent months. We haven’t finished yet of course, and we know the road is still long, but we’ve laid a first important ‘brick’.”

Michele Pirro, Ducati test rider

“Testing the MotoE prototype on track was really exciting because it marks the start of an important chapter of Ducati history. The bike is lightweight and already well balanced. And as well as this, the ergonomics and the connection when you first open the throttle are really very similar to those of a MotoGP bike. If it wasn’t for how quiet it is and the fact that we decided to limit the power to just 70% during this test, I would have thought I was out on my bike.”
