Ducati MIG-S electric mountain bike to arrive locally in October
Would you pay P435,000 for a Ducati e-bike?
While Ducati is known for its sportbikes, naked bikes, and other models, the Italian company has also dabbled in electric mobility. After originally being slated to release last year, the first model of Ducati's electric bicycle range is set to arrive this October. Access Plus Philippines, an authorized Ducati distributor, has revealed that it's now accepting reservations for the MIG-S e-bike.
We were supposed to get two more Ducati e-bikes locally, but the MIG-S will be the sole model available for now. The pandemic reportedly delayed the arrival of stocks, which was previously scheduled for 2020.
The Ducati MIG-S is priced at P435,000. It features a Shimano Steps E8000 electric motor, as well as a 630 Wh Shimano battery pack. The motor weighs only 25 kg and can reach speeds of up to 35 km/h. It remains one of the most advanced e-bike motors around. The electric motor can switch between three levels of assistance, including Eco, Trail, Boost, and Power-Walk modes. There's also the Shimano E-tube app, which allows users to control the pedal assistance levels. Plus, Ducati has fitted the MIG-S with an LCD gauge with remote control.
The MIG-S electric mountain bike is built on a lightweight 6061 aluminum frame with forged and CNC-machined parts and hydroformed tubes. The front suspension features a 150 mm Marzocchi Bomber Z2, while the rear has a 140mm FOX Float DPS. The rear suspension also features a Thok Progressive System layout.
As for braking, the e-bike has Sram Guide T 4-caliper 200mm rotor disc brakes. Thok e-plus wheels are featured, with 29 inches for the front and 27.5 inches for the rear. The wheels pair with Pirelli Scorpion S tires with SmartGrip Hyperwall.
Acccrding to Access Plus, the Ducati MIG-S will be available in the Philippines starting this October. The distributor is accepting reservations now. There's no word yet on whether Access Plus plans to import other models of Ducati's electric mountain bikes.
