KTM actually has two Freerides on its hands with the 350 and also the Freeride E, which is an electric dirtbike.
While battery technology has a way to go before a bike like this becomes anything like a common sight, the Freeride E is the first release from a major manufacturer and a signal that we best get used to thinking about power in terms of kilowatts instead of horsepower.
There’s no word on when the E will be freely available (excuse the pun).
