Ducati’s latest e-enduro, the 2023 Ducati TK-01RR Limited Edition E-Bike, is available in only 169 numbered units throughout Europe and the United States. This special edition is a technology showcase that improves upon the TK-01RR model in several respects, most notably in terms of downhill performance, with the help of extra state-of-the-art components.
The hlins TTX spring shock absorber (170 mm travel) and the hlins DH38 dual-plate motorcycle-style air fork (180 mm travel) deliver exceptional downhill handling without sacrificing efficiency on the climb. Magura MT7 brakes, with 220 mm front and 203 mm rear discs, are among the most powerful on the market, and the 11-speed Shimano Di2 XT rear electronic shifter ensures fast, precise shifting at all times.
Crank Brothers Synthesis wheels are designed with variable-thickness carbon rims and a novel wheel arrangement (29-inch front, 27.5-inch rear) to improve riding precision while guaranteeing a better weight/strength ratio. Renthal’s carbon battery cover and skid plate, Fizik’s seat with a cleverly integrated tool pocket, and carbon both the stem and handlebars round off the set. The agile, high-performance, and fun All Mountain was designed to tackle every trail and provide the best possible experience no matter the conditions.
2023 Ducati TK-01RR Limited Edition E-Bike – Features and Specs
Shimano EP8 Engine
The category-defining low weight of 2.6 kg, compact dimensions, and Q factor of 177 mm make this product revolutionary. With a maximum torque of 85Nm and an aid ratio of up to 400%, this drive unit allows complete vehicle control by transmitting a powerful pedaling force that is always smooth, direct, and natural. Using the Shimano E-tube Project App, the EP8 system’s engine’s personality may be tailored to the rider’s preferences. A “long ride” mode for traversing greater distances and a “fast ride” mode with more brisk acceleration is standard on all our electric mountain bikes.
Tubes of varying wall thickness have been hydroformed and forged before being CNC machined. Designed to maximize pedaling efficiency and vehicle control, the frame has a 66° head angle, an enlarged top tube, and a 74.7° vertical seat tube.
The new air suspensions (RockShox 35 RC fork and RockShox SuperDeluxe R shock absorber) provide safe travel over any terrain with a front travel of 150 mm and a rear travel of 140 mm.
The KS dropper post with remote handlebar control, the solid and versatile SRAM Guide T 4-piston brakes, and the SRAM NX 12-speed rear derailleur (11-50T) are all high-end components that provide top performance and safety no matter what.
Low Centre of gravity
The 630Wh battery is placed below the down tube to provide a shallow center of gravity, improving handling and stability, and it can be removed quickly and easily.
Tires and rims
Differentiated Thok e-plus rims are wrapped with Pirelli Scorpion Enduro S 29″ x 2.6″ Smart Grip Hyper wall tires up front and Pirelli Scorpion E-MTB S 27.5″ x 2.6″ tires out rear. You may use them to get a running start and keep your footing in any condition.
