        As synonymous as Ducati is with its desmodromic internal combustion engines, it comes as a welcome surprise that the Italian brand has been confirmed as the single manufacturer for MotoE. Dorna Sports recently announced the end of its four-year contract with Energica, the previous manufacturer for the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup.

        Seeing as how Ducati has no existing electric road-going motorcycles, the Borgo Panigale factory will be in for quite a challenge to develop its electric concepts on the global motorsports stage.

        Ducati Motor Holding CEO Claudio Domenicali is excited to announce this new partnership:

        “We are very proud of this agreement because, like every first, it represents a historic moment for our company. Ducati is always focused towards the future and every time it enters a new world it does so aiming to create the best-performing product possible.

        This agreement comes at the right time for Ducati, which has been studying electric powertrains for years, as it will allow us to develop within a controlled field: that of competition. We will work to give every participant in the FIM MotoE World Cup a high-performance, electric motorcycle and one made to exemplify being lightweight.”

        With Ducati-powered electric race bikes on the horizon, it’s only a matter of time before the Italian brand produces these machines for the general public. Don’t expect such bikes to hit showrooms immediately, though, with the manufacturer having to focus on its MotoE endeavors first for the 2023-2026 seasons.
