The Italian company continues to conquer the e-bike market. In addition to the recent urban Scrambler model, it plans to launch three foldable electric bikes in the same lineup.

Ducati recently unveiled a co-development with Thok, the premium e-Scrambler for city and country use. Now three more electric bikes have come out under the same brand, this time foldable, New Atlas reports. All are known to have aluminum frames, but no information on weights, dimensions, parts list or price is available yet.

The first, Urban-E, is the most stylish thanks to the contribution of designers from the famous Italian bureau ItalDesign Giugiaro. Equipped with integrated LED headlights (front and rear), LCD display integrated in the handlebar, suspension fork and 20 x 4 ” thick tires with puncture-resistant Kevlar thread. Inside the curved frame is a 378 Wh battery.

The second model – SCR-E – with the same wheels and fork. The rear light is switched on automatically at dusk, by a signal from a light sensor built into the LCD display. A full charge of the 374.4 Wh battery should be enough for 70 km.

The latest addition is the SCR-E Sport with dual suspension, thinner, faster tires and a range of 80 km thanks to a 468 kWh battery.

The SCR-E and SCR-E Sport will hit the market this summer from Ducati dealers. Urban-E is slated for release in October.

London-based company Gocycle recently announced an updated version of last year’s hit, the GX city electric bike. Now it weighs 17.5 kg, and when folded it takes 830 × 390 × 750 mm.
