The Ducati MIG-RR is an offshoot of Thok's MIG series with unusual features. For example, the bikes have 29-inch wheels and 170 mm travel at the front, combined with 27.5-inch wheels with 160 mm of travel at the rear. The bikes are set up with FOX Factory Kashima suspension, carbon fiber Renthal handlebars, Mavic wheels, four-piston Shimano Saint brakes and an 11-speed Shimano XT gear set. The MIG-RR has a Shimano Steps E8000 motor powered by a 504 Wh battery.

The battery is positioned underneath the down tube, which Ducati said helps produce a low center of gravity. It will be distributed throughout Europe via the Ducati dealership network starting next spring.
