The MIG-RR Is Ducati’s First Step Into The World Of E-Bikes

Ducati has partnered with Italian e-bike company Thok to launch the Ducati MIG-RR e-MTB. Designed to provide full-on off-road fun and freedom, the MIG-RR incorporates the style and technology that Ducati and its products are famous for. 

The 22.5kg MIG-RR mounts top-drawer components from Shimano, FOX suspension (with 160mm of travel), Mavic and Renthal with livery developed by Aldo Drudi, the man behind Valentino Rossi’s iconic helmets and leathers. 

The Shimano Steps E8000 electric motor offers juice for 3.5 hours of hard mountain riding, with three levels of assistance, Eco, Trail and Boost providing additional power when you pedal to take the edge off climbs and acceleration when you need it. The Shimano E-Tube app allows riders to further tune the Trail and Boost assistance levels to three different positions.

Currently the Ducati MIG-RR is only available in Europe with a sticker price of €6,250. We’ll keep you posted if things change.
