The path that will take the Borgo Panigale motorcycle manufacturer to the role of sole supplier of motorcycles for the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup (the electric class of the MotoGP™ World Championship). 

MotoE Electric

Starting from the 2023 season is proceeding with great enthusiasm both on the track and in Borgo Panigale. Thanks to the teamwork that involves numerous company areas.

The “V21L” prototype comes about from the close collaboration and constant exchange of know-how between Ducati Corse. And product R&D to create a motorcycle that is both high performing. And with a lightweight benchmark target for an electric bike.


The MotoE project is undoubtedly essential in its history as it represents the start of the Ducati electric era.

A little more than a year after the first test with Michele Pirro at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Work has begun on the ‘V21L’ prototypes that will be the protagonists of the 2023 FIM Enel MotoE™ World Championship season.

The production of the bikes started in December, and the 23 units will be ready by mid-February. Expert technicians in the Ducati MotoE Racing Department assemble each prototype. With the same process, precision and attention to detail are typical of the high craftsmanship used to build a MotoGP bike.

Let’s see what Ducati’s CEO, Claudio Domenicali has to say

After testing it in July, I can’t wait to see the Ducati MotoE officially participating in the first race of the 2023 FIM Enel MotoE™ World Championship in Le Mans on Saturday, 13 May. It will be a historic moment for us!



The assembly of these 18 radpowerbikes to be delivered to the teams and the five spare units have just started here in Borgo Panigale. With the support of a dedicated team of amazing women and men who thoroughly study the future technologies for the world of motorcycling.

It is an important area of experimentation in which we are investing to build know-how so that we will be ready for battery technology. Should allow the creation of an exciting electric road bike with the weight, performance and range enthusiasts expect from a Ducati.

We are embarking on this new adventure to develop the people. And skills within the company to shape the character of a future Ducati electric road bike.

The MotoE project also represents a decisive step for Ducati to contribute to reducing CO2 emissions on the product side. Alongside research into synthetic fuels (efuel) that can reduce the total CO2 emissions of internal combustion engines to zero.

Environmental sustainability is something that all individuals need. And companies must consider a priority if the planet’s delicate balance is to be preserved. 

Ducati is committed to this also at the industrial level. And the construction of the new Finitura e Delibera Estetica area, classified as a Nearly Zero Energy building is just the latest example.

The production of the V21L represents the beginning of a new and vital chapter in Ducati’s history. Developing skills for its future and maintaining the approach that has always fueled Ducati’s DNA.

Experimenting with technological solutions in the racing world. And working to ensure that everything developed in this area can then be used on motorbikes destined for enthusiasts worldwide.
