Propelled by a 300-volt brushless Perm motor and powered by a 2.1kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the Freeride E produces the equivalent of 30 bhp at 6000 rpm and 31 lb.-ft. of torque at a mere 500 rpm. Horsepower is right in line with a 125, as is the e-bike’s 209-lb. weight, but that torque figure is about twice as high! The battery is designed to provide approximately 40 minutes of hard use—right in line with the length of a long moto. Obtaining a full charge requires about 90 minutes, but KTM claims an 80 percent charge can be achieved in half that time. That makes it feasible to run two batteries in tandem if stamina and inclination coincide: one in the bike powering it, the other charging up, ready for a swap every 45 minutes. There’s no word yet on how much a spare battery will cost, but the price will surely be steep.
