New to the market is the Ducati Futa, a high-performance electric road designed for solo or group riding to improve riders’ skills and enjoyment. The Futa is a compact electric bike that provides just the proper assistance to make even the steepest ascents a pleasure.
Technology choices prioritizing speed and aerodynamics complement the carbon fiber monocoque frame’s sports endurance design. Comfort increases and aerodynamic drag is decreased because of the E-Bike’s reduced liners and seat stays. The rear triangle’s lateral strength and the liners’ placement contribute to the bike’s responsiveness and efficiency in transferring power to the wheel.
The Ducati Red accents and main grey and black color scheme of the livery draw attention to the bike’s attractively curved downtube, seat post, and fork liners.
A 250W motor with 42Nm of torque is housed in the rear hub of the FSA System HM 1.0. It is one of the lightest and most compact models in its class (3.98 kg), and it has a smooth and natural delivery in every circumstance. This engine has five different assistance settings, all configurable through the Garmin handlebar-mounted interface. The FSA app is compatible with iOS and Android devices, allowing the rider fast and easy access to data, system status, battery life, and charging rate. The app also facilitates communication between users and FSA service centers worldwide to acquire any required software updates.
Due to its low weight (12.4 kg in M size) and almost invisible engine resistance, the Ducati Futa is always responsive and swift over flat stretches, with speeds exceeding 25 km/h. Carbon pedal arms are included in the standard issue of the FSA K-Force WE group set, along with powerful 160mm disc brakes, adjustable UD carbon interchangeable levers, and lightning-fast and silky smooth 212-speed wireless electronic shifting.
Vision AGX30 wheels with carbon rims and 35mm Pirelli Cinturato Velo TLR tires provide on all fronts: strength, durability, and ride quality.
2023 Ducati Futa E-Bike – Features and Specs
E-Road According to Ducati
The new Futa is Ducati’s entry into the market for pedal-assist road motorcycles. A name cherished by all Ducati fans and riders in honor of the winding road that connects Emilia Romagna and Tuscany and has the same name. A newer model made to go farther and climb steeper slopes than you had expected, the small e-road exemplifies the spirit of Ducati by emphasizing design, innovation, and pleasure in a seamless synthesis of comfort and performance.
Carbon Fiber Frame
Technical choices were made with speed and aerodynamics in mind, while the carbon fiber monocoque frame is built for sports endurance.
The bike’s compact rear stay with decreased sheaths makes riding more comfortable and reduces wind resistance. The positioning of the sheaths in the rear triangle makes it lateral rigid, which improves power transfer to the wheel and the bike’s responsiveness. The livery’s color scheme, which includes parts of Ducati Red and the primary colors of grey and black, highlights the bike’s expertly molded down tube, seat post, and fork sliders.
FSA System HM 1.0 Engine
One of the smallest and lightest in its class, the 8.7-pound, 250-watt rear hub-mounted engine delivers a smooth and natural delivery regardless of the scenario. You may adjust the aid from this engine using the Garmin handlebar-mounted control.
The FSA app, available on iOS and Android devices, allows the rider to quickly and easily check driving statistics, system status, remaining battery life, and charging status. The app also facilitates communication between users and FSA service centers worldwide to acquire any required software updates. The 250Wh FSA battery fits snugly in the down tube, and a range extender of the same capacity is available as an accessory.
FSA K-Force WE complete group set
It looks great and is the result of years of research and development. The K Force WE group set has 212 speeds of wireless electronic shifting, ensuring smooth, quiet, rapid, and precise gear changes.
Because of the three available settings for depth adjustment, the interchangeable UD carbon levers provide a comfortable and natural grip. They let you modify the pace of individual tracks or scroll the whole tape in one direction: robust, modular 160 mm disc brakes and a crankset with carbon cranks round out the set.
Trimax Carbon Aero handlebar
A carbon fiber aero bar with many convenient extras and one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios available. Like the forward bend of ten degrees, which improves respiration and makes it easier to reach the hands.
Vision AGX30 wheels
Wheels that are both durable and reliable. The carbon rims not only help you save weight, but they also make cycling more accessible and more efficient, especially in the early stages of a race. Pirelli Cinturato Velo “tubeless ready” tires (35700) provide unrivaled traction, comfort, and longevity.
