Although available in other markets in 2014, the KTM Freeride E-XC made its US introduction in 2017 followed by a multitude of updates in 2018. Over the past couple of years the e-machine has not seen any additional changes, however, it remains a midsize electric dirt bike that both beginners and pros can enjoy. Beginners will benefit from its lack of a clutch and gear shift lever, while more experienced riders will enjoy tapping into its electric motor’s claimed peak power of 18 kW. Its 260-volt lithium-ion battery can last for a claimed 1.5 hours (depending on the riding style) while energy recuperates when coasting or braking for added range. Its chassis consists of a composite frame, WP Xplor 43 fork, WP PDS Xplor shock, and long steering head for stability and handling.
