KTM Freeride E-SM 2015
The FREERIDE E-SM is far more than an electro-enduro with road tires. It is the first in a completely new class of motorcycle that enables virtually noiseless short-distance transport with zero emissions while offering maximum riding fun. It’s the perfect complement to a contemporary lifestyle. It differs from the FREERIDE E-XC in, among other things, its smaller wheels with extremely grippy, practically slick tires, a longer gear ratio for higher speeds and a chassis tuned for its intended purpose. A 300-volt battery powers a brushless, permanent-magnet, synchronous motor, which can deliver up to 16kW output in short bursts and makes for a powerful drive package. The lithium ion battery loaded with 2.6 kWh ensures up to one hour of maximum electric power. Intelligent power electronics tuned perfectly to the overall package ensure that the spontaneous power development of the machine remains easily controllable. The high-torque electric motor is connected to a single-speed transmission with no gearbox, so neither shifting nor clutch operation is necessary.
