Ducati has unveiled a prototype of its MotoE electric motorcycle, the V21L; the vehicle will race in the 2023 FIM MotoE World Cup. The bike has a top speed of 275 kph (~171 mph) and weighs 225 kg (~496 lbs). An 18 kWh battery pack provides enough range for the required seven circuits of a Grand Prix race and can recharge to 80% in about 45 minutes.

Ducati has revealed a prototype for the MotoE electric motorbike, the V21L. The Ducati MotoE's engine provides up to 110 kW (150 hp) power and 140 Nm of torque. The motor weighs 21 kg and has a maximum rotation speed of 18,000 rpm. So far, the bike has reached a speed of 275 kph (~171 mph) on a circuit.

The V21L weighs 225 kg (~496 lbs), with a frame made of aluminum and carbon fibre to minimize the weight. The battery pack accounts for almost half of this at 110 kg. The power pack has an 18 kWh capacity, with 1,152 cylindrical cells, providing enough range for the motorbike to complete the seven required laps of a Grand Prix track when racing. You can use a 20 kW charging socket on the bike's tail to charge the V21L from 0 to 80% in around 45 minutes.

Ducati says that the vehicle's cooling system is some of the more advanced technology used on the bike; it includes a liquid system with a double circuit to regulate the temperature of the motor and battery. The V21L is the first e-motorbike from the brand and will compete in the FIM MotoE World Cup next year; Ducati will supply all 18 bikes that will race in the series from 2023 to 2026.
