Ducati: E-COM 2018
The Ducati E-COM is a terrific place to begin one’s journey with electric bikes and for many, it will be the only bicycle which enjoys regular use. As accessible as the Ducati Cucciolo of 1946, this ‘pedelec’ is something of a modern day companion and enjoys it’s fair share of visual cues too.
Flowing through the gentle lines of the charming silver or Bordeaux red frame is a powered front hub, generous mudguards and chain cover for all weather riding. The sturdy rear rack is ready for your coat or a pannier, housing the removable Lithium-Ion battery pack within. There are bright LED lights and a comfortable riding position from a step-through frame, plus conventional brakes.
The sensor picks up the effort you put in through the pedals and adds to this by pulling you along with a motor, which is built into the front wheel. This helps to keep things steady from the start and also balances the weight evenly across the bicycle.
We are particularly excited about this model, as it is an ideal way to enjoy cycling for people of all ages and abilities.
