Jarvis: "I'm curious how Ducati will manage MotoE and eight MotoGP"

It was in the run-up to the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix when Motorsport.com announced that Ducati would take over from Energica in 2023, a point that the Bolognese manufacturer confirmed shortly after.

As much as the Borgo Panigale brand still has a season to go (2022) before being committed to supplying the bikes that will form the MotoE World Cup grid , the challenge is enormous, both at a technical level, as logistical and organizational.

Even more so if we take into account that next year, a third of the 24 prototypes that will compete in MotoGP will be Ducati, a circumstance that will redouble the efforts and commitment of the Bolognese manufacturer to serve all its customers.

At Yamaha, which already considers it difficult to meet the needs of the four M1s it brings to the championship, there is some interest in seeing how Ducati will apply itself on both fronts when the time comes.

“I’m curious how Ducati will take over MotoE and eight MotoGP bikes, because from my point of view it’s a lot of work,” Jarvis told Motorsport.com .

The news caught Jarvis and most of the paddock by surprise, especially because of the statements that Claudio Domenicali , CEO of Ducati, had always made up to that moment, very skeptical of the field of electric motorcycles, due to the limitations that still present at the level of autonomy and performance.

“Personally, the news surprised me a lot. It is not something that I could expect from Ducati if we take into account its history,” adds the British executive, who, however, quickly finds an explanation for the change in strategy carried out by the company. Italian.

“But as Ducati is now part of the Audi group, that adds up a bit more. There is no doubt that the introduction of electric motorcycles will become more and more present in the world, so, thumbs up for them.”
