Italian automaker Ducati's Urban e-Mobility division has unveiled its cheapest electric scooter, called the PRO-I EVO. Its debut in India seems unlikely.

Here are more details.
The e-scooter rides on 8.5-inch wheels
Ducati PRO-I EVO sits on an aluminium alloy frame and sports a long handle as well as a flat footboard. It rides on 8.5-inch wheels wrapped in inflatable tires. The scooter packs LED lights and a color LED display on the handlebars with support for the company's User App. It tips the scales at 12kg and can bear a maximum load of 100kg.
It has a top-speed of 25km/h
The Ducati PRO-I EVO is powered by a 350W electric motor linked to a 36V 280Wh battery pack. The vehicle delivers an estimated range of 25-30km and has a top-speed of 25km/h.
Three riding modes are available
For ensuring the safety of the rider, the Ducati PRO-I EVO is equipped with an e-brake on the front wheel and a disc brake on the rear wheel. The electric scooter also offers cruise control and three riding modes: Eco, D, and S. Each mode offers a different maximum speed limitation. The frame also includes an anti-vibration mechanism, which makes the vehicle more stable.
