Motorbike expert Ducati has unveiled a new electric road bicycle, the Futa. This is the company's first racing bike with pedal assistance, adding to its existing line-up of e-bikes.

The Futa has a 250 W motor that delivers 42 Nm of torque, the largest allowed for a road-legal bicycle in Italy. The engine provides five power assistance levels, two more than you find on many other e-bikes. You can control this power through a Garmin control set on the handlebar.

The bicycle has 2 x 12-speed wireless electronic shifting for smooth and precise gear changes. The Futa comes with a 250 Wh battery, with an optional range extender to double this capacity. You can use a connected app to view the bike's battery life alongside your ride statistics.

The Futa e-bicycle has a carbon fibre frame making it lightweight; it weighs around lbs (12.4 kg). A run of 50 limited edition models of the Futa will be even lighter at approximately lbs (12.2 kg). This limited edition version will have the range extender battery and a Garmin Edge Explore GPS bike computer to provide the rider with maps.

Ducati's Futa bicycle starts at US$8,532 (€7,690) and is due to ship to customers in October 2022. The bike will be available to customers across Europe and the US.
