Although Ducati is most known for its motorcycles, the Italian manufacturer has steadily expanded its micro-mobility line. This time it’s with a new electric kick-scooter; the Ducati Pro-III touted as the “most technically advanced scooter” they have produced.
The Ducati Pro-III is powered by a 350W motor capable of providing 515W of power, though it only maintains a top speed of 25km/h. However, the 468Wh battery promises a range of up to 50 km on a single charge.
Between the light magnesium frame and the 10-inch anti-puncture tubeless tires, you’ll be riding comfy and steady.
Perhaps the most unique selling point of this new two-wheeler is its use of NFT technology. The rider can use an included token to start the scooter by holding it close to the display. It essentially acts as a wireless ‘key’ in that only those in possession of the chip can use the e-scooter.
From the 3.2-inch LED display, you can access the Ducati Urban e-Mobility app, which allows you to receive updates on the vehicle’s performance, remaining battery life, location, and distance travelled. As you might have guessed, the app and all its functions are also accessible from your phone. Additionally, a small USB port integrated into the display lets you charge small devices, such as your phone, while on the go.
The Ducati Pro-III electric kick-scooter is available now for purchase for $925. If you have the money to spend, you can find it on the official website and Ducati dealerships.
