Ducati unveils SCR-X and SCR-E GT folding e-bikes with 48 V motor
Ducati has unveiled two new folding e-bikes, the SCR-X and SCR-E GT. Platum has developed the pedelecs in partnership with the Centro Stile Ducati. Both bikes are powered by a 48 V Bafang motor with a top speed of 25 kph (~16 mph) and up to 60 Nm torque.
The SCR-X, designed for urban settings, has a 499 Wh battery for up to 80 km (~50 miles) range. The bike is equipped with 20 x 4-in tires and a suspension fork for a comfortable ride. Plus, a rear rack can support loads up to 25 kg (~55 lbs). The SCR-E GT has been made for more adventurous riders who encounter rougher terrains. With the same tires as the SCR-X, the SCR-E GT also has a central shock absorber for full suspension support. This bike has a larger 614 Wh battery for up to 80 km (~50 miles) off-road range.
According to Ducati, you can easily fold the bike's aluminum frame in several places to make it easier to transport and store. The pedelecs are fitted with dual hydraulic disc brakes and a waterproof LCD which you can use to turn on the headlights and switch between power modes. The Ducati SCR-X and SCR-E GT e-bikes will go on sale in mid-July. It is currently unclear how much the pedelecs will cost and in which regions they will be available.
