Freeride 350 - THE SHOOTING STAR
Right from the beginning, the Freeride 350 has been a tremendous bestseller – no wonder, since it unites extremely easy handling with a low seat height and outstanding ergonomics. Thanks to a minimal weight of under 100 kg, the rider is always completely in control even on the roughest terrain. The state-of-theart 350 cc DOHC four-stroke engine, laid out especially for the Freeride 350 has proven to be the ideal drive unit for this vehicle concept and scores highly in every situation with controllable, torque-oriented performance characteristics. The backbone of the Freeride 350 is an innovative composite frame made of top quality chrome-molybdenum steel and forged aluminium components. The high-tensile polymer rear subframe is connected to the main frame by a secure triple link. 43 mm WP USD front forks ensure excellent response and damping, while their top-drawer, CNC-machined triple clamps guarantee outstanding stability. On the rear, a PDS monoshock is directly linked to a swing-arm that has especially been developed for the Freeride 350, making for supreme ride comfort and optimum ground contact. The Freeride 350 delivers pure riding fun not only off-road but also on short trips to the city centre and it makes a great holiday companion that you can strap to the rear of a camper van.
Freeride E - GETTING HIGH ON VOLTAGE
As the world’s first motorcycle manufacturer, KTM offers a racing off-road bike with electric drive. Globally unique in its radicalness, the Freeride E is extremely light, highly dynamic and powerful while delivering locally emission free and virtually noiseless propulsion with its electric powertrain. A 300 V battery, power electronics developed by KTM and a brushless synchronous motor “Made in Mattighofen” which delivers a peak power of up to 22 kW make for a highperformance powertrain and extreme riding fun that is not limited to tight and twisty tracks. With its 42 Nm of torque, which – typical of electric motors – is available right off the start, it needs not to fear combustion- driven competitors. Thanks to its water-cooling, the Freeride E’s performance will not reach its limits, no matter how difficult the terrain may be. Making for up to an hour of maximum electric power, 2.1kWh of energy storage mean unstoppable riding enjoyment. After that, riders who still have not enough can simply swap the battery thanks to a special quick change system, and are ready to go again in no time – and fully recharge the empty battery within 90 minutes. Thanks to its high-torque electric motor, the Freeride E is very easy to ride as it has neither a gearbox nor a clutch. With the first zero emission motorbike, the global leader in off-road sports motorcycles has gone on the offensive and proves that riding fun and environmental sustainability can be perfectly compatible.
