In recent years, the Scrambler brand from Ducati has evolved from a simple model line to a fashion icon. The Scrambler, in all of its forms, is adored for its tough, retro-inspired appearance and bare-bones nature that highlights Ducati's more rugged side and is sometimes seen as the company's savior in the current day.
In recent years, Scrambler Ducati has introduced clothing, luggage, and other accessories that are ideal for the bikes in its model lineup. But it appears that Ducati's retro-themed sub-brand is also gradually being integrated into Ducati's Urban Mobility offerings. Many of Ducati's urban mobility options, including its electric kick-scooter and foldable e-bikes, are already out in the market. This time, Ducati is collaborating with Platum, a brand owned by MT Distribution, to provide two new folding e-bikes bearing the Scrambler Ducati logo, the SCR-X and SCR-E GT.
Both e-bikes have a 48V electric motor that is designed to make city riding pleasurable and sustainable. 20 x 4.0-inch road tires, a conventional telescopic front suspension, and an integrated rear rack with a carrying capacity of up to 25 kg are all standard on the SCR-X. The battery has a 499 Wh capacity when fully charged, providing a range of up to 80 kilometers at a top speed of 25 kilometers per hour. It is possible to remove and individually charge the bicycle's battery.
The SCR-E GT, on the other hand, has the same size wheels but is equipped with Knobby tires, indicating its light off-road capability. The bike's frame is also slightly more sturdy and equipped with front and rear suspension supports. A larger 614 Wh battery pack is also included for the SCR-E GT. With a slight increase in power, it can now carry that more weight while still having the same range of 80 kilometers on a full charge.
Both e-bikes are powered by a 48V Bafang hub-mounted motor, which has a maximum torque of 60 Nm. A Shimano Tourney 7-speed transmission enables the rider to more effectively adjust gearing in various riding circumstances and to use the e-bike as a regular bicycle if they want to get a workout in. You can monitor important information like speed, battery life, and assist level using a waterproof LCD display. Last but not least, the bikes have an aluminum frame that is simple to fold and can fit in the trunk of an ordinary hatchback or SUV.
