In addition, Ducati will take on the role of standard equipment supplier in MotoE from 2023. The field of electric motorcycles consists of 18 riders. In the coming year the calendar will be extended to seven race weekends with two races each.

The motorcycle for the MotoE World Cup will be a new development. Overall, Ducati has a lot of work to do, both technically and logistically. The competition is watching with interest to see whether this is shouldered.

For comparison, Yamaha has still not managed to provide four MotoGP riders with the latest factory specifications. Darryn Binder will ride the M1 from 2021 next year. And Yamaha’s new Moto2 commitment is a cooperation with VR46.

Lin Jarvis was surprised by Ducati’s MotoE entry Zoom

“I’m curious how Ducati will handle MotoE and eight MotoGP bikes,” Yamaha’s MotoGP manager Lin Jarvis told the Spanish edition of Motorsport.com. In the autumn, Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali announced the entry into MotoE in Misano.

For many it was a surprise, because Domenicali had shown himself skeptical about electric motorcycles in the past. “I was personally surprised too,” admits Jarvis. “I would not have expected that based on the history of Ducati.”

But Jarvis also says: “Ducati is part of the Audi group, so it fits [die MotoE] better to do that. Without a doubt, electric motorcycles will become more and more present in the world. So one can only congratulate them on that. “
