KTM Presents the Zero Emission

March 25, 2010 11:53am

KTM the first prototype of a “zero motorcycle in October 2008, a that was the result of the company’s with the Vienna Development “Arsenal Research”. Now, 18 later, the sports motorcycle from Mattighofen in Austria is on target for the release of the first KTM electric sports motorcycle. the title “Freeride” KTM will two near-series prototypes at the 2010 Motorcycle Show, which in one time will transfer the spirit of the brand that is “Ready to Race” into a model fit for the 21st century.

its first zero emission the world’s leading producer of motorcycles has developed an electrically sports motorcycle that that riding fun and environmental need not be in conflict with one The cornerstone of this development is the commitment to offroad motorcycle and the obvious intention to go on the offensive by expanding the strongest part of the business activities with a product that, as yet, not exist in this format. revolutionary development embodies new perspectives: Freeride also for the end of motorcycles fleeing the city and the return of sporting motorcycle in urban areas.

9.) About the KTM Power Sports AG

Due to the that exist today, riders of offroad motorcycles are with great difficulty if want to practice their Ideal basic conditions are seldom found, even on tracks or special purpose Regulatory requirements and demands residents and general objections are to the closure of Enduro and motocross

The decisive criterion against the use of bikes in heavily populated is almost always a question of an level of noise.

In order to give the sport room and create new possibilities, is no better solution than the emission motorcycle from It equates 100 percent to the sporting and the race-oriented philosophy of the brand. It seamlessly into the product and at the same time brings it a motor technology for sports that until today has very difficult to make

This is a motorcycle that is light, sporty and powerful, and its electric motor, it is now also an and noise-free form of mobility.

this development it is possible to offroad sport close to populated areas, to establish new and riding opportunities, where now it has been unthinkable. The use of this machine closer to home may interest in the activities of new target

2.) A Decisive Step into the

Stefan Pierer, CEO of KTM Sportmotorcycle AG: the electric drive system of the emission motorcycle, KTM has succeeded in a decisive step forward in the of the motorcycle industry and two-wheel Above all, emission-free with a motorcycle brings new in the short-term and opens up completely perspectives. KTM remains answerable on two On the one hand we are “Ready to Race” and we to do that with the latest and on the other, as the worldwide number one in sport, we must take that the sport remains and indeed, further develops!”

to the belief that e-mobility is not this technology is directly and an advantage to the enthusiast consumer. with this zero-emission, motorcycle, a consumer may be able to their sport in areas were previously off limits due to restrictions. Furthermore, KTM’s aim is to “Freeride” at a comparable price to of a similar combustion engine

3.) Competitive Price Levels

with new technology, it is the high that hinders the success of a not the least because of the significant in research and development. With vehicles, it is still a problem the high cost of batteries to inhibit the broad-based deployment of and noise-free mobility. KTM has been to solve this problem and offer a competitive price for its zero emission motorcycle from the outset.

Mag. Trunkenpolz, Sales Director of AG: “We can already say that the of our Freeride motorcycles will be € 10,000. With we have a product on the market is more than competitive from outset. So apart the fact that this is on a par with a current combustion-driven of the type used in the World KTM is, in addition, setting completely new in matters of technology.”

4.) A Long for the Development Process

The development of an sports motorcycle is an extreme A competitive bike must be and light so that it remains It must be able to endure jumps and the hardest of landings as as showing resistance to impacts, and even rubble. It must be to be ridden through puddles, mud rivers or streams and survive which are an every day occurrence for a Enduro.

And naturally, after the of offroad days, the bike be able to withstand being by a high-pressure washing device.

for a conventionally driven motorcycle is already an enormous challenge for the For the developer of an electrically driven it initially seems to be an unsolvable These requirements are so far removed what is possible, feasible or according to what currently in the development of electrically driven

Nevertheless, the KTM Development Team to the challenge. The established research “Arsenal Research“, now operating as AIT Institute of Technology) was called in as As well as its existing competence in the of the development of electronic/electric motors and this Vienna-based institute was openly enthusiastic about sports, forming the ideal for a development partner.

Since the presentation of the first prototype in October 2008, the troop from KTM in Mattighofen, has taken over the development of a ready bike. They cooperate with development and specialists from various from all over the world.

The KTM emission motorcycle is the embodiment of a vehicle interpretation that is of the company’s “Ready to Race” Like all KTM sportmotorcycles it exhibits the modern construction hallmarks and is throughout with high-quality components, representing the result of of experience and the continual dominance in sports.

The completely new electro-drive developed by the KTM Development Team in with AIT sets entirely new Its light-weight (under 100kg) is to a 125cc two-… machine a normal combustion engine. In the electric engine and battery water-resistance and handling have concerns of consumers that are now through KTM’s worldwide patent for the battery drive

Gerald Kiska, Development and KTM chief designer: “The of a conventional high-speed sportmotorcycle to level is already a big task. The of an electrically-propelled vehicle of comparable represents an entirely new era in all areas. The use of the motor means a completely new for the motorcycle which brings it an equal measure of pros and

Our team must be in a position to completely new approaches and solutions and at the time to apply the existing in an optimal way. Because of “Freeride” is a typical KTM project innovative, courageous and full of ambition.”

6.) Focus on Series Machines

Following promising the transition of the zero emission from a purely research to a series development project has been a reality. Intensive is being carried out on the preparation of the series product at KTM headquarters in Austria. The two prototypes being at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show are series-near and the bike will be for sale 18 months late in

DI Harald Plöckinger, KTM Power AG Board Member: “As a that is both innovative and a leader, KTM has set itself the task of new drive systems for our sports The concept of the zero emission united well-known KTM core with a new and very interesting technology. The first prototypes are revealing the huge potential of development project.”

What the KTM “Freeride” motorcycle cost?

The has not yet been finalized; however, the aim is to under € 10,000 and to on a price comparable to a conventional, sport Enduro.

Will be other variants or models?

The electro-driven certainly offers areas of application than offroad sport. In the first it will only involve the because here KTM wants to experience and push the sport. the enduro, there are numerous applications and scope for variants.

Is the KTM homologated for street riding?

In the machine will be homologated for use on the road.

How long will the last under normal

In principle it must be said in the area of e-motors reach is dependant on the profile of the user. The is significantly less with a professional at the handlebars than a hobby enduro rider. The goal is to be equitable with the in the area of Enduro.

In other with mixed offroad approximately one hour should be

How long does it take to the battery?

The battery can be used at performance after 90 minutes on the It is possible to recharge the battery still installed in the bike, but it can be simply and quickly removed and with another.

How many is it possible to recharge the battery?

The specification of the battery has not been The one that is presently being allows approximately 500 recharges, is the equivalent of the normal life of an Enduro motorcycle. Generally, it be said that the development of in this sector is still in the stage and significant advances in are expected in the coming years.

Does the “Freeride” mark the end of the Enduro with a combustion

Absolutely not. From point of view the new drive represents a big chance to open up a stream of application in the area of Highly developed four-… will continue to be used in the just as with two-…

Above all, motorcycles an electro-motor will contribute to the sport into the urban and at the same time speak to an new target group.
