A scooter that crams tons of features into an incredibly stylish design with a top speed of around 15.5 mph and a range of up to 24.8 miles.

At first glance, the Pro-II Evo is a beautiful machine. It’s not an unattainable beauty—it’s approachable in a way that says, “I can’t wait to take you for a ride.”

It is packed with innovative features to provide the ultimate riding experience.

The styling is modern, without being over the top or too plain. The overall fit and finish are great; the scooter doesn’t feel cheap at all.

 With its lightweight frame, powerful motor, and futuristic design, the scooter offers an outstanding riding experience in urban environments.

Ducati Pro II Evo: The Lowdown…

The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter comes from the stables of an Italian motorcycle manufacturer, Ducati. The company has been known for its prowess in manufacturing top-class Ducati motorcycles that are not only stylish but also high-performance machines. In recent years, the company has been expanding its reach into the world of e-mobility. Through its partnership with MT Distribution, Ducati made a foray into urban transport with a range of electric scooters, folding e-bikes, and accessories to market in 2020. 

 

The current Ducati electric scooter offering comprises the Ducati Corse, Ducati Pro, and Scrambler Cross brands. They offer a unique blend of style and performance that is sure to appeal to Ducati fans. The Pro series includes Pro-I EVO, Pro-I EVO White, Pro-I Plus, Pro-II, Pro-II Plus, and Pro-III. With the Pro-II Evo, Ducati has made its mark with a scooter that beats most of its competitors on the street—and looks good doing it. 

 

The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter is designed with the same sleek style as Ducati’s legendary motorcycles. Still, it’s meant to be used on city streets and driveways instead of highways and racetracks. It’s engineered to be light and fast off the line, with a relatively small frame that belies its power. The Pro-II Evo scooter is the second iteration of the Pro series, and it comes with a few significant improvements over the Pro 1 Evo.

The brushless 350W front hub motor is designed for silent operation while still providing enough power to zip up hills and cruise at decent speeds. And with a range of up to 15.53 miles (25 Km) on a single charge and a maximum speed of 15.5 Mph (25 km/h), you can explore your city without worry. The scooter also comes with various safety features, including front and rear LED lights and reflectors so you can ride confidently knowing you’re visible to other riders and pedestrians, especially in low-light situations.

 

The brushless direct current motor on the premium scooter can generate enough power to push the scooter up inclines of 18% gradeability while carrying a maximum rider weight of 220.4 lbs (100kg). The large 10-inch tires provide stability and traction, while the dual suspension system absorbs bumps and uneven surfaces for riding comfort. This model is also powered by a 36V, 10.4Ah, 374Wh battery with a great range to get to your destination without running out of juice.

 

This scooter is equipped with both front electric and rear disc brakes, providing optimal stopping power.

The scooter’s handlebar is slim with very few controls, so it feels less cramped and cluttered than other models, and the overall design is minimalistic. In addition, the Pro-II Evo electric scooter’s deck is spacious, allowing you to ride in style and comfort.

 

The scooter can be paired with the Ducati Urban e-mobility App. With the Ducati Urban e-mobility App, you can access a range of e-scooter functions, including the performance and location of your scooter.

Performance Overview

 

The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter is pretty average and what you’d expect of a commuter scooter. While the Ducati name raises expectations, riders should not expect Ducati-motorcycle performance. However, it offers a smooth ride and decent range, making it perfect for those who want to zip on cycle lanes in style. The motor is a 350W front hub brushless motor that provides adequate power for up to 18% of hills and other obstacles. 

 

The battery configuration is 36V, 10.4Ah, and 374Wh, and it delivers a single-charge mileage of 15.53 miles (25 Km). It can be fully charged in about 7 hours. The scooter can achieve a max speed of 15.5 Mph (25 km/h) with that power. The scooter’s 4-speed modes give you complete control over your speed, allowing you to zip around town at a moment’s notice. In addition to the 4-speed modes, it has a cruise control feature that will enable you to set your speed and simply let go of the throttle. This is ideal for riders who want to conserve battery life or simply enjoy an easy ride.

Speed & Acceleration

The Ducati Pro-II Evo isn’t a demon monster; rather, it’s designed to be the perfect daily commuter with a decent maximum speed of 15.5 Mph (25 km/h), and it can accelerate quickly to that speed. The acceleration is smooth and linear, making it easy to control the scooter. The scooter has 4-speed modes that deliver a smooth, responsive ride. The 4-speed modes: Pedestrian, Eco, Comfort(D), and Sport Mode(S+) achieve different top speeds.

Pedestrian mode is perfect for beginners or those who want a leisurely stroll and has a top speed limit of 3 mph (6 km/h). The Eco speed mode is great for cruising around town with a maximum speed of 9.3 mph (15 km/h), and Comfort and Sports modes are ideal for getting up to speed quickly at a top speed of 12.4 mph (20km/h) 15.5 Mph (25 Km/h) respectively. In addition, the scooter has a cruise control feature that lets you set your speed and maintain it without having to hold down the throttle. 

Hill Climbing

The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter has a limited hill-climbing ability with its 350W front hub brushless motor. The scooter is underpowered to conquer hills of the stated 20% incline and will probably only go between 10 and 15% before you have to get off and carry it up the remainder of the gradient. If you live in a hilly area, the Pro III may be a better choice as it has the motor power to climb up steeper inclines.

Battery & Range

The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter comes with a 36V, 7.8Ah, 280Wh Lithium-ion battery that delivers a single-charge mileage of 15.53 miles (25 Km). It can be fully charged in about 7 hours using the included charger. This impressive battery life lets you commute on the Ducati Pro-II Evo without worrying about running out of charge halfway through your journey. Ducati is one of the manufacturers with a near-honest range quotation; therefore, your real-life range will not be so far off the stated one. However, the mileages vary depending on the rider’s weight, terrain, and weather conditions.

Motor Configuration

A 350W front hub brushless motor powers the Ducati Pro-II Evo. The DC motor outputs a continuous power of 350W and delivers up to 515W peak power. The motor is housed in the front hub protecting it from the elements and debris. The brushless motor is also very durable and requires little maintenance.

    Construction & Quality

    We give it to Ducati for the simple but high-quality build of the Pro II. With a sleek, minimalist design, the Pro-II Evo is perfect for city dwellers who want to take advantage of the freedom and convenience of an electric scooter without sacrificing style–the graffiti on the deck and stem is especially eye-catching. The scooter is made with a sturdy magnesium alloy frame that can handle a lot of wear and tear. The magnesium frame is a strong but light material and helps reduce the scooter’s overall weight. 

     

    The handlebars are also designed for riding comfort, with rubberized grips that are meant to fit snugly into your hands without slipping. The handlebars are lean with a few convenient control that allow you to control the scooter without having to take your hands off the bars. The steering bar features a brake lever, thumb-activated throttle, and power button on the LED display.

     

    To accentuate the luxurious feel of the scooter, Ducati has used top-of-the-line materials for the fenders. The deck is coated with non-slip rubber, providing stability and preventing feet from slipping off the scooter. The scooter has also been carefully crafted with a solid stem that is both stable and durable. The nuts and joints look like they have been bolted on tight, and everything about the construction screams high-quality and perfection.

     

    The stem locking mechanism reflects Ducati’s prowess in engineering and design. The locking mechanism is simple to use, with a single button that you press to release the stem, and the installed safety clip ensures the mechanism is secure while preventing the scooter from wobbling or falling apart. The wires are neatly tucked away and out of the way. A kickstand is attached to the scooter, making it easy to park.

    Suspension & Comfort

    The Pro-II Evo is equipped with dual rear shock absorbers and dual front fork hydraulic shocks that provide a smooth, comfortable ride. The front and rear suspension is responsive and handles bumps and cracks typically found on some urban roads. However, the suspension system is not efficient for off-roading comfort.

    ducati pro 2 evo scooter

    Ride Quality

    The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter is designed for a comfortable ride on well-maintained city tracks. It’s equipped with a rear shock absorber and dual front shocks that provide a smooth, comfortable ride over minor cracks on the riding path. The double suspension system combined with the large tyres also makes it easy to navigate through tight spaces and corners.

     

    The double braking system provides superior stopping power, so you’ll feel safe and secure when riding.

    The deck is also draped in non-slip rubber, ensuring stability and a firm grip. The deck adds to the overall comfort of the scooter by providing a spacious area to step when riding, while the magnesium alloy helps tone down vibrations from the road, making for a smooth and relaxed journey. 

     

    The handlebars are ergonomically designed, and both are covered in rubberized grips to minimize vibrations and slippage. The stem is also worth mentioning. It is both stable and durable and has a locking mechanism that is simple to use and very secure, keeping the scooter from wobbling.

    Lights

    The scooter has an efficient lighting system that comprises front and rear LED lights. The headlight is bright and provides good visibility in low-light conditions. However, a mid or high-mounted light would have done an optimal job at illuminating. The rear LED is strategically embedded on the rear fender to warn drivers and pedestrians of your presence. It also has reflector stickers on the sides to improve visibility during nighttime rides. 

    Braking

    The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter is designed with safety in mind. It’s equipped with double, electric front brake and rear disc brakes, so you’ll stop faster and safer than ever before. The rear disc brake is actuated using the brake lever, while the front electric brake activates when you let off the throttle.

    Portability

    It weighs 38.58 pounds ( 17.5 kg) and slightly outweighs its lookalike, the Xiaomi Pro 2, which weighs 31 pounds (14.2kgs). The scooter is portable but not the most portable and might prove quite cumbersome over long distances.

    It has an easy and quick folding system. With a few simple steps, the Ducati Pro-II Evo can be folded and quickly transported in the trunk of your car or stored away in a small space. The scooter folds to a compact size of 116 x 48 x 49 cm. It can even fit inside a carry bag, making it easy to take with you on your travels. The carry bag is purchased separately.

    Tyres

    The Ducati Pro-II comes with 10″ front and rear tubeless tyres that provide a smooth, comfortable ride. The tires are a puncture-resistant variant, which is a big plus. But, they still remain pneumatics, and you can expect the occasional tyre punctures. The large front and rear wheels make it easy to navigate through tight spaces and corners and provide stability on uneven surfaces. 

    Deck

    The Pro-II Evo features a streamlined deck that is coated with non-slip rubber, ensuring that your feet will stay securely planted as you zip from place to place. The deck has a wide enough base to comfortably hold riders of various sizes. You will also appreciate the good ground clearance that keeps riders from scraping the deck’s underside as the scooter goes over obstacles or uneven road surfaces.

    Controls & Display

    The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter has a simple and user-friendly control system. The handlebars are equipped with a coloured 3.5″ LED display, a throttle on the left, and a bell and brake lever on the left. The thumb throttle is easy to control, and the brake lever provides good braking power.

     

     The display is easy to read and gives you an overview of all the settings, including speed, riding modes, distance travelled, and battery level. It also indicates when the scooter’s cruise control and headlights are on. The scooter also connects to a multifunctional app that can do the following:

     

    • Initiate a self-diagnosis on the scooter

    • Alternate between the driving modes

    • Change the display metrics

    • Initiate start mode

    • Lock the scooter on cruise mode

    • View the riding metrics

    • Monitor battery status

    • Display the cruise mode icon

    • Display gear mode

    • Indicate the driving wheel temperature

    Water Resistance

    The scooter has a water-resistant rating of IPX4. This means that it can withstand light rain and splashes of water. However, it is not waterproof and should not be used in heavy rain or wet conditions as this may damage the electrical components.

    Reliability

    The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter is a reliable and durable product. It is crafted with high-quality materials and components that are built to last. It is built using the same standards as Ducati’s other scooter models, which are known for their quality and durability. The scooter features no breakable parts save for the plastic fenders and other minor plastic covers.

     

    The magnesium alloy frame is rust and corrosion-resistant and ensures that the scooter is safe and secure when riding. The scooter is also equipped with 10″ front and rear tubeless tyres with anti-puncture technology. The range and average speed are adequate for city cruising, as is the dual suspension system. The scooter can self-diagnose and display error codes when there’s an issue, e.g., locked-rotor protection and over-temperature indicator, making diagnosing and repairing pretty simple. 

    Warranty 

    The Ducati Pro-II Evo is backed by a 6-12 months warranty, depending on the authorised distributor. The warranty covers all manufacturing defects and faults, but the duration is short compared to other electric scooters on the market.

     

    Ducati has a team of customer service professionals who are available 24/7 to help you with any problems or queries you may have. You can even access direct assistance through the mobile app.

    Maintenance

    The Ducati Pro-II Evo electric scooter requires minimal maintenance. The scooter is easy to maintain, and most of the tasks can be performed by the rider using the supplied tools.

    You will need to do the following to keep your electric scooter in good condition:

    • Charge the battery according to the manufacturer’s instructions

    • Keep the scooter clean and free of dirt and dust

    • Lubricate the moving parts and bearings regularly

    • Check the tyre pressure and ensure that the tyres are in good condition.

    • Inspect the brakes and replace the brake parts when necessary.

    • Store the scooter dry and in a cool place

    • Check the bolts and screws for tightness and replace them when needed.

    • Check the electrical components and connections for any damage or corrosion.

     

    Known Issues

    Considering this scooter is relatively new in the scooter market, there aren’t many reported issues. However, here is one of the issues:

    • The fenders are short, and they don’t do a good of keeping off water and mud from the scooter.

    Ducati Pro II Evo: Is it worth the money and is it worth buying?

    “The Ducati Pro II is a generic scooter with a Ducati badge.” Yes, it is a great commuter, if we’re being honest. But, there is nothing much love or hate about the scooter. It has the design and specs of most of the scooters that we have on the market. It performs its basic task, which is to move from point A to B. But to be fair, this is a very competitive category that the scooter is in. Almost all brands have a 350W rated scooter, and some have them at cheaper prices. 

     

    While the Ducati will cost about £699.00/$916, you can also opt for cheaper 350W scooters, e.g., Segway, Go Trax, Hiboy, Apollo, Xiaomi, you name it. The Pro II has another challenge: the battle with scooters from brands that have already established themselves in the industry. However, it does have features that justify the price point, e.g., dual suspensions, a disc brake, a big clear LCD screen, a multifunctional user app, and Bluetooth connectivity. Hopefully, in the future, Ducati will release more high-performance scooters.
