KTM unveiled the Freeride E, their first production version of an electric zero emission off-road motorcycle this week at EICMA.
While we know many riders still turn up their noses at something that doesn’t make noise and burns fossil fuel, but the Austrian manufacturer’s newest edition to their line-up still looks like a blast to ride while protecting the enviroment.
Power come from a brushless, synchronous motor and 300V battery which produces 30bhp (22kW) at 6000rpm and 31ftlb of torque at just 500rpm.
It supposedly gives you 45 minutes of trail riding autonomy before being recharged, which takes 90 minutes.
KTM has yet to finalize the price of the Freeride E, but aims to keep it under € 10.
