Ducati Philippines is now accepting reservations for its lineup of electric mountain bikes that are expected to arrive in the country real soon. The three models of the Ducati e-bikes are the MIG-RR and MIG-S enduro, and the e-Scrambler retro-urban mountain bikes. This lineup of e-bikes was made with e-bike specialist Thok. The bikes feature an ultra-lightweight aluminum frame and are powered by Shimano Steps E8000 MTB e-bike system for the MIG-RR, and a Shimano Steps E7000 for the e-SCrambler.
The Shimano drive units provide shifting of power and ample torque from the 250W electric motor to the final drive train. Power is provided for by a Shimano battery unit positioned right below the down tube of the bike’s frame for better handling. The 504Wh battery provides significant long-distance travel in a single charge.
The e-Scrambler runs on 27.5-inch Thok e-plus wheels with Pirelli Cycl-e GT rubber designed for urban riding. It also includes high-performance components with a Sram NX 11-speed groupset and Sram Guide T 4-piston disc brake. The bike weighs in at 22.5 kg and comes with a telescopic height-adjustable seat, Thok handlebars, Ducati-made handgrips and saddle, headlamp, tail, and turning lights, a luggage rack, mudguards, and a side stand.
Meanwhile, the MIG models are designed to be used for serious off-roading. It is equipped with 29-inch front wheels and 27.5-inch rear wheels paired a Fox 36 Float 29 Factory Series or premium Marzocchi Bomber front forks. The rear end gets a Fox DPX shock absorber for its damping duties.
The e-Scrambler is priced at €3,699 at the European market or roughly around P213,400. Factor in our taxes, duties and shipping costs and dealer’s markup, its asking price could go higher at P366,500. Meanwhile, the MIG-RR is prived at P548,000 with the MIG-S priced at P438,000. Ducati is really making the move of diversifying its portfolio and getting into electric vehicle mobility with these e-mountain bike offerings.
