    Default Electric Ducati

    Looks like Ducati are getting ready for the electric market....


    With hub centre steering too.

    Just what you need Chiz. Electric bikes don't have a clutch

    Only spring in that thing will probably be the side stand

    Love that and that rear wing looks awesome - although with my fat arse I'm not sure how much dynamic effect it would have.

    Looking at some of the instant torque acceleration that the likes of Tesla can produce, a full beans Ducati electric super bike would be incredible - if weirdly quiet.

    I read somewhere ( on a plane probably given work recently ) that the next big entry into the electric car market is likely to by Dyson - apparently they have been quietly working away on scaling up their electric motors for the last 2 years. Although a scary business decision for them - i don't think Tesla have made a profit yet!!
    I'll love you with all the madness in my soul

    It does look fantastic, won't need a quickshifter either, i was surprised at how much actual road noise there is though in an electric car, in a modern day car with a quiet engine I am reliably informed (by her who must be obeyed, sometimes!) that there is not that much difference. Damn she's right again, gi e me strength..😡

    I've ridden a zero - https://www.zeromotorcycles.com/ca/

    It was a complete blast, I loved it - it is remarkably fast for the size of it (as said elsewhere, instant torque). It was particularly odd to start with though.. the natural/automatic memory muscle reaction when stepping on a bike is to reach for the clutch and kick it down into first, both of which resulted in neither my hand or foot hitting no levers. It took my head a few moments to sort itself out
