Ducati Made a Trio of Folding E-Bikes, and They're All Awesome

Want Italian style with your zero-emissions ride? Ducati has your back.

Ducati, of course, is best known for its motorcyclesscreaming track terrors, burly scramblers, nasty sport nakeds, and all sorts of other wild two-wheeled machines guaranteed to give you a good time. But the company also dabbles in other sorts of bikes on the side — specifically, e-bikes.

The first was the MIG-RR, which may sound like a Russian fighter jet, but is actually a electrically-assisted mountain bike; then came the e-Scrambler, a city-friendly trekker. Now, Ducati is adding not one but three more e-bikes to the portfolio — and these ones are even better-suited for urban living, because they fold up.

The SCR-E and SCR-E Sport are both easy to spot, thanks to their Wiz Khalifa-approved color scheme, and pack features like an external temperature gauge, automatic headlamps and integrated tail lamps. The Sport version, however, packs a bigger battery — a 468 watt-hour job, versus the 374 watt-hour one in the regular SCR-E — which lets it travel up to 50 miles on a charge. The SCR-E Sport also scores a full suspension, making it better suited to soaking up bad roads.

Then there's the Ducati Urban-E — which, as you might imagine, is particularly well-suited for city livin', what with its emphasis on style. (Notable design firm Italdesign helped whip it up.) The sleek red-and-black bike's frame conceals a 374 watt-hour battery capable of providing added shove for 43 miles; like its siblings, it also packs an LCD instrument panel and LED headlamps, but the latter is split in two around the front fork.

Of course, the marquee feature of all three bikes is their foldability. The handlebars tuck away and the body folds in two in just a few easy steps, compacting the entire bike down to a small enough size that it can almost disappear in an apartment (or hide easily in a car's trunk). Pricing hasn't been revealed yet, sadly, but we're hoping they won't be too expensive; after all, that might make our desire to bring one of these home a little harder to fulfill.
