Italian superbike manufacturer Ducati has teamed up with Thok E-Bikes to create the MIG-RR e-MTB, first unveiled alongside the marque’s range of 2019 motorbikes at the EICMA in Milan back in November - and now it's available to pre-order on ducati.com.
It takes its rather cool name and some features from the MIG range of e-bikes already produced by partners Thok, which says to us that Thok is to Ducati what Bianchi is to Ferrari, and the enduro focus is clear to see.
The front wheel is a 29er while the rear is a 27.5”, with 170mm and 160mm of travel through Fox Factory Kashima suspension units giving plenty of top-grade off road ability.
Unsurprisingly, given that it’s a Ducati-badged bike, there are high spec components elsewhere too. A carbon fibre Renthal handlebar, Mavic E-XA Drifter wheels, Race face Turbine Dropper seat post, Shimano Saint brakes with 203mm rotors and a Shimano XT 11-speed gearset marries up to the brand’s Steps E8000 motor, with a maximum output of 250w and 70nm of torque to meet standard pedelec regulations.
The battery is a 504wh unit mounted on the underside of the downtube, which Ducati says keeps the centre of gravity low to help with “easy-but-precise” handling, and it's said to come in at around 22.5kg in a medium.
If you want one you'll have to dig deep, as the bike is now available to pre-order for €6,250. They are expected to ship out in April.
