Starting from 2023-season, Ducati will be the exclusive official supplier of motorbikes for FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, the electric class of the MotoGP World Championship.
The agreement signed with Dorna Sports, organizer and promoter of the most important two-wheel international competitions, will last until 2026 and therefore it will include four editions of the MotoE World Cup.
It is a historical step for Ducati that follows its custom of using competitions as laboratory for technologies and solutions that then become reality for all riders.
Therefore, the FIM Enel MotoE Championship has all papers in order to allow the company to develop the best technologies and test methodologies applied to light and performing sportif electric motorcycles.
At the same time, the appurtenance of Ducati to Volkswagen Group, which has made electric mobility an essential element of its 2030 “New Auto” strategy, represents the best preliminary condition for an extraordinary exchange of competences in the field of electric powertrains.
«We will work – declared Claudio Domenicali, CEO Ducati Motor Holding – to provide all participants in FIM Enel MotoE World Cup with electric motorbikes that are highly performing and stand out for their lightness. The major challenge will concern precisely weight, fundamental element of sports cars. Lightness has always been in Ducati DNA and, thanks to the technology and the chemistry of batteries that are evolving quickly, we believe we can achieve an excellent result».
