The name Ducati e-Scrambler might deceive you into thinking that the Italian manufacturer has finally made its entry into the electric motorcycle segment. Sadly, that’s not the case. It’s an urban bicycle with an electric motor that borrows the famed Scrambler name from Ducati’s motorcycle line-up. Ducati is no stranger to e-bikes. In fact, the company debuted several e-bikes models last year created in partnership with e-bike maker Thok and the e-Scrambler was also a part of it. The Italian marque has finally released information on the Ducati e-Scrambler and it has been specifically created for urban use. Described by the brand as an ‘urban trekking bike’, the e-bike has been built using high-end components from Shimano.
Powering the e-Scrambler is the Shimano Steps E7000 motor that produces 60 Nm of torque, which is quite a bit considering the motor’s tiny size; it weighs just 6 lbs. The motor draws power from a 504 Wh Shimano battery that is placed right under the downtube. The e-bike features a Suntour XCR fork with 100 mm travel and a pair of 4-piston Sram Guide T units for braking. Additional features include Sram’s NX 11-speed transmission, dropper seat post, integrated lights, and a rear rack rated for 55 lbs of load. The bike wears a black and yellow paint scheme inspired by the Ducati Scrambler motorbike. In case you are interested, the e-Scrambler will set up back by €3,699 (around US$4,280).
