X-Bow and class leading performance bikes aren’t the only vehicles to be the part of KTM Austria’s product portfolio. After coming up with the Freeride E off-road electric bike, KTM has now come up with their first-ever battery-powered electric scooter. Christened as the E-Speed, the electric scooter from KTM is currently in prototype stage. The KTM E-Speed is powered by the same lithium-ion battery that is present in the Freeride E. The E-Speed is propelled by a 11kW and 36Nm liquid-cooled, permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor. The electric scooter has a top whack of 85kmph. The bike can be fully charged in merely two hours and comes with a steel trellis chassis and WP suspension.
“We at KTM are completely convinced of electric mobility as a perfect complement to conventional powertrains. In the long term, the electric drive will come out on top for short distances – particularly in areas which are highly sensitive from an environmental perspective, like open nature and densely populated metropolitan areas,” said KTM CEO, Stefan Pierer. “Vehicles like the E-Speed and Freeride E can help powered two-wheelers win back more acceptance in society. Not just because of their environmental credits, but because they are easy to use, quick, and simply great fun,” he added.
