The official confirmation also included other revelations like the fact that Ducati will be working on scooters as well. However, the company has even mentioned that it is not considering the plan of manufacturing motorcycles with a small engine for the mass market.

Having said that, Ducati has also revealed that it is looking forwards to prioritize the commission of Euro 5 emission norms for 2020.

And moreover, these motorcycles are extremely powerful as well.

Bajaj Auto is planning to come up with a new brand, called Urbanite, which would be an exclusive branding for electric bikes.

Coming back Ducati, the Italian company had showcased some good motorcycles the EICMA 2017 at Milan. The displayed motorcycles included the long-awaited Ducati V4 Panigale, which is presently the most powerful two-wheeler in the company’s lineup.
