Ducati launches a new Pro-III electric scooter
There may have been a time when the idea of Ducati releasing an electric vehicle of any kind would have been unthinkable. However, that was then and this is now, and the legendary brand has just slapped its name on another new member of its growing Urban e-Mobility series.
The Pro-III e-scooter has a 350W motor rated for up to 515W of power. Despite these impressive figures, they result in a fairly standard top speed of 25 kilometers per hour (km/h). On the other hand, it might do so within a relatively impressive 50km maximum range.
It might take a rider of 100kg or less in mass this far on 1 charge of its 468Wh battery, which could take as many as 9 hours to charge. The OEM asserts that it is the "most advanced" electric scooter in its range, thanks to its large 3.2" LED display, ability to connect to the Ducati Urban e-Mobility app and its NFC token that acts as a wireless 'key' for the 10-inch-wheeled vehicle.
All of this (particularly the brand name) does not come cheap, however. Ducati has priced the Pro-III at €799 (~US$923) and made it available through its authorized dealers.
