Ducati Shows-Off New e-MTB Line

Ducati is showing-off its new e-MTB line that was created in partnership with Italian e-bike brand Thok.

The line consists of the TK-01RR and the MIG-S, which both feature the latest electric drive systems from Shimano.

According to Ducati, the new TK-01RR is an e-enduro that “adopts the most modern technical solutions, with the aim of making every riding phase exciting and letting you experience off-road in its maximum expression, even on the most inaccessible routes”.

The TK-01RR is equipped with Shimano’s new EP8 electric drive unit that’s mated to a lightweight aluminum frame, which features a vertical downtube that houses an integrated 630Wh Shimano battery, while the geometry of the bike has been geared more towards ‘extreme’ e-enduro use, with a 64.5-degree head angle, an elongated top tube and a 75.5-degree vertical seat tube.

The TK-01RR also fitted Shimano XT brakes, Öhlin’s new 180mm RXF 38 fork and 170mm TTX shock absorber, along with Pirelli’s recent Scorpion E-MTB S tires.

The MIG-S is aimed at those looking for an “agile, performing and fun e-MTB” says Ducati, which is equipped with Shimano’s proven Steps E8000 motor and battery, with the battery being positioned below the downtube to improve the overall handling of the bike. 

The Ducati has also revised the geometry of the MIG-S with an elongated toptube and a more vertical seat tube (74.7 degrees), along with 150 mm of travel at the front and 140 mm at the rear, allowing the MIG-S to “explore any trail, guaranteeing the rider excellent handling” boasts Ducati.

The MIG-S is also equipped with a Marzocchi Bomber Z2 fork, Fox Float TPS shock absorber, SRAM Guide T 4-piston brakes, Thok e-plus 29in rims at the front and 27.5in at the rear and Pirelli’s newly introduced Scorpion e-MTB tires. 

The e-Scrambler is Ducati’s “urban ready” trekking e-bike that’s powered by a 250-Watt Shimano Steps E7000 motor with 504 Wh battery and Pirelli Cycl-e GT tires.

The E-Scrambler will become available in the US starting this December for $3,995, while the MIG-S will sell for $5,295, with delivery set to begin this December.

The TK-01RR arrives starting in February 2021 with a price tag of $7,995.
