The Bologna, Italy-based firm entered the e-bike market about two years ago. Its first model, the MIG-RR, was developed in partnership with Thok E-bikes. Last summer, Ducati continued the experience by announcing the e-Scrambler, an eBike designed more for urban use.
Scooters and folding bikes were also presented during the same occasion. Aware of the importance of continually focusing on innovation, the company has just unveiled the update of its ranges for 2021. Three new pedelecs have been announced: the TK-01RR and the new e-Scrambler and MIG-S.
The TK-01RR takes over from the MIG-RR. This is an electrically assisted mountain bike. Performance will apparently be there with this model as Ducati announces the integration of the new Shimano EP8 engine. It should be noted that despite its weight of only 2.6 kg, the latter develops a maximum torque of 85 Nm. Thanks to a dedicated application (Shimano E-tube Project App), the rider can even customize this torque.
The frame of this electric-assisted Ducati mountain bike also features a 630 Wh battery. According to technical data published by the company, the TK-01RR has a 12-speed transmission. Braking is provided by Shimano XT 4-piston brakes. For the suspension, the manufacturer has provided an adjustable RXF 38 fork and a TTX shock absorber deflecting 170 mm.

The latter would improve range by about 26%. Particular attention has been paid to the frame to ensure better comfort and better handling. However, no alterations were made to the rest of the equipment.
