Super Soco CUx Ducati is the first Ducati Electric scooter
It was just a few weeks ago when we reported that Ducati is working on an electric scooter. The company has now revealed the electric scooter which is basically a Super Soco CUx electric scooter with Ducati badge. Super Soco is an electric scooter maker based in the UK.
CUx is quite special because it is the same scooter which Ducati MotoGP teams use in the paddock. There are no changes made to the design of the scooter. No enhanced performance is given to the electric scooter. The only change, as you can see, is the Ducati’s signature red and white livery on the side panels and front cowl.
Powering Super Soco Ducati electric scooter is a 3.6 hp Bosch electric motor. The torque, however, is impressive at 130Nm. The motor gets power from a 30 Ah lithium-ion battery pack. Top speed of the Ducati CUx is 45 kmph which is insignificant as per Ducati’s standards. A full electric range is pegged at 60-70 km in a single charge.
It takes around 3.5 hours to fully charge the Ducati electric scooter. Braking performance comes from the 180 mm disc brakes at both front and the rear. Braking is assisted by Electronic Braking System. This tech helps the scooter to completely stop from 40 kmph in just 1.8 meters.

There is a fully digital instrument cluster with most of the important information on display like range. The headlight is a complete LED unit which throws a bright beam up to 75 meters ahead of you. Connectivity option is also available through which you can connect your smartphone to the scooter and have access to various functions.
Speaking of the price, Super Soco Ducati electric scooter is priced at 2299 pounds. This amount translates to Rs 2.1 lakh in the Indian currency. However, the SUper Soco will not make its entry into the Indian Market as it will be very expensive to sell in the country. Furthermore, Ducati is working on its electric motorcycle which will be unveiled in a couple of years.
