Mostly the German manufacturers, with some others thrown in, will roll out 400 fast chargers within Europe. It's nothing in numbers, but it's a start.

"IONITY, a joint venture of BMW AG, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Co and Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) with its Audi and Porsche brands, plans to open 20 stations to the public this year in Germany, Norway and Austria. They will be 120 km (75 miles) apart and run in partnership with Tank & Rast [LINDOTA.UL], Circle K and OMV. "

Audi bought Ducati didn't they?  Maybe something from them with two wheels.

"Each charging point will have a capacity of 350 kW, and will use an existing European standard, the Combined Charging System, to reduce charging times compared to existing systems"

I am not sure what a charging station is and a charging point is.  Hopefully the price for the stations includes paving and a roof.
