Did those cars/bikes have Ducatti electrics?

Actually I think we worry too much about this.
When was the last time you had a (modern) car stop once it was running? I cant remember this ever happening to me and I have some pretty ropy cars. I once had a BMW R75/6 stop because the capacitor failed but apart from that I cant think of a single instance of an internal combustion engine stopping once it was running - including a wide variety of tanks, motorbikes cars etc in nigh on 40 years of driving.
Come to think of it I cant remember any of my parents cars stopping once they were running - ah yes once when the fuel filter was almost blocked.
Normally if they start and you feed them they continue to run.

Hello Will,

to be independent of electricity is indeed a big advantage. However there are few modern engines (Rotax iS, Continental CD 155 Diesel, car engines....) which aren't.

As far as I know there was only one (documented) electrical related accident in Switzerland with a MCR01, which didn't have a standard setup if my memory serves.

That said, it's of course always better to have redundancy (other than just the battery), especially in a plane and that is why I'll go for the Silent Hektik product.
