Ducati has announced it will be bringing three electric bicycle models to select dealerships in Canada for 2023; the Ducati MIG-S, Ducati TK-01RR, and Ducati TK-01RR LE.
We’ve now seen many e-bikes come from our beloved bike brands throughout these past few years, these new models from Ducati seem more oriented to enduro mountain biking than many of the other offered e-bike models.
The Ducati MIG-S is built as an all-mountain e-bike, built to be lightweight, and built to climb and descend. It’s set up with 150 mm travel in the front and 140 mm in the rear, a 29” front wheel and 27.5” rear wheel, and the Shimano Steps E8000 engine and 630Wh Shimano battery positioned below the down tube to improve handling.
The Ducati TK-01RR is the E-enduro model, made beefier than the MIG-S; equipped to handle everything, especially the descents. Featuring a new Shimano EP8 drive unit of pure performance weighing only 5.72 lbs., the motor is one of the lightest and most compact in the segment with maximum torque of 85Nm with a maximum servo assistance ratio of 400%. This translates to torque always being delivered with maximum fluidity, also thanks to a reduction in friction. With a 630Wh Shimano battery and a new aluminum frame featuring a verticalized downtube, the TK-01RR also is fitted with other high-end components such as a 12-speed transmission and Shimano XT brakes, as well as the brand new 180mm Öhlins RXF 38 fork and Pirelli Scorpion tires developed specifically for E-MTBs.
If that wasn’t enough Ducati will also be releasing the TK-01RR LE, a limited-edition model built with higher-spec components and the basis of downhill mountain biking in mind. The fork is an Öhlins DH38 dual-plate motorcycle-style air fork (180 mm travel) and in the rear, the Öhlins TTX spring shock absorber (170 mm travel). The differentiated format Crankbrothers Synthesis wheels (29″ front, 27.5″ rear) with variable thickness carbon rims help to further improve riding precision, guaranteeing an excellent weight/strength ratio. The set-up is completed by a Renthal carbon handlebar.
Pricing for the MIG-S will start at an MSRP of $7,695, the TK-01RR starts with an MSRP of $10,995, and the TK-01RR Limited Edition starts with an MSRP of $14,495. There will be demo rides for these models offered for those interested at the selected dealerships.
