The new KTM FREERIDE E-XC features a new KTM PowerPack with increased capacity. Rated at 3.9 kWh, the new battery provides 50 % more capacity than the previous version’s 2.6 kWh, which makes it capable of powering the electric bike for up to 1.5 hours of riding fun, depending on the riding style and terrain. More good news? It retains full backward compatibility to the previous electric KTM FREERIDE E models. Easily inserted from above, the removable KTM PowerPack sits on top of the motor, secured by four screws and well protected by the frame tubes. It is easily swapped for a fully charged one by simply flipping up the seat and opening four screws. This can be accomplished in a matter of seconds, even quicker than refueling a bike with a combustion engine.Alternatively, the KTM PowerPack can be fully charged while still mounted in the bike by using the connector beneath the seat. In terms of battery aging, even after 700 charge cycles, the KTM PowerPack will still provide 70 % of its initial capacity.
The FREERIDE E-XC is suitable for road use. It has all the necessary components for riding to the baker, the local forest or to work. Lights, indicators, mirrors, ignition lock and immobiliser number among the additional features that mean absolute freedom. With peak power at 18 kW, a continuous rated power output of 9 kW and weighing in at 110 kg, it complies with the restrictions of the A1 driving license and may therefore be used by 17-year-old beginners.
The chassis of the KTM FREERIDE E-XC was developed specifically to meet the demands of an electric offroad motorcycle. KTM has assembled a package of its most innovative solutions, including a steel-aluminum composite frame and a subframe made of high-strength polyamide. The KTM FREERIDE E-XC thus guarantees playful handling, with the peace of mind that comes with a low seat height, in addition to low weight, a strong frame, strong brakes and first-rate suspension components with long travel.
With in-mold graphics providing a rugged and lightweight solution for the latest design, the new KTM FREERIDE E-XC’s modern and ergonomical new bodywork provides lots of rider mobility with excellent contact patches, as well as narrow seat and spoiler lines. Integrating a more efficient front light, the new headlight mask hooks into a newly designed fender. Open handguards are now standard equipment.
