KTM has been very busy developing what could be the future of their motorcycle lineup, which is powered by electricity.
In a recent North America dealer summit hosted by KTM in Charlotte, North Carolina, the House of Mattighofen presented its comprehensive electric sportminicycle lineup.
“Everyone is talking about e-mobility these days. At KTM AG, we are constantly pursuing developments in this field, living up to our responsibility as an innovative, sustainable company,” says Hubert Trunkenpolz, Chief Marketing Officer at KTM AG.
“We strongly believe that e-mobility plays a role when it comes to short distance, urban mobility, and small engine size. In the offroad segment, we need to consider the circumstances on the tracks, such as limited availability to charge big batteries.”
The current range offers electric bikes for young riders with different skill sets, from first balance bikes to advanced competition models. In 2022, the range has been expanded with the addition of the new SX-E 3, EE 3 and MC-E 3, which bridge the gap between the group’s electric balance bikes and the advanced SX-E 5, EE 5 and MC-E 5 models.
By the middle of the decade, the electric lineup will feature more than 20 electric offroad motorcycles from all brands, ranging from beginner to competition-level models, aimed at young talents who are taking the future of motorsports to the next level.
With decades of expertise in the engineering and manufacturing of motorcycles, KTM AG is carefully assessing the opportunities for electric mobility and developing products that are sustainable both ecologically as well as economically.
KTM motorcycles are distributed by Adventure Cycles Philippines, Inc., (ACPI) which is under the Ayala Group. They have yet to announce the arrival of KTM e-bikes in the country.
