New KTM E-Bike On Display At FIM

New pictures of the KTM all electric motorcycle, the “E-BIKE”, surfaced after being on display at FIM. (Notice www.ktmebike.com resolves to KTM site) The pictures show a nice profile view of the electric motor and the bottom of the battery pack. It looks like the bike retains a nice compact profile and hides the batteries well. The shape of the swing arm is a unique. The bike runs two 21″ tires as opposed to the 21″ front and 18″ rear common on gas fueled / ICE enduros.

Absent from the left side of the handle bar is the clutch lever. However there appears to be a throttle tube with wires running from it. I can speculate this may be used for regenerative braking. Could just be a start button or on/off switch which is more likely. This bike is obviously engineered from the ground up, not a 125 with an electric motor and batteries grafted in. Looks like the Quantya Strada and Zero X will have some strong competition. Can’t wait to see more.

    Aiya,serkali that Khoo is fake leh? You can’t just talk about suing someone by leviang a comment. I’m very sorry to say,even with that formality in your tone,your actions are rather stupid. Trying to act professional? You should have send Joshua an EMAIL instead of leviang a comment here.By the way,checked up on your pretty website. Wow. We can contact the CEO directly??? Isn’t there anyone else working in your company like Customer or something? Sorry man,you’re darn stupid.Oh wait,shows how PROFESSIONAL you are: Threatening to sue a blogger on his own blog.FAILED.
