It's official. KTM will be the first legacy brand to sell an electric motorcycle to the public. The Freeride E, a motocross-flavored machine available in both off-road (E-SX) and street (E-XC) versions, will be found at European dealers in just a few short weeks. As with so many cool things, don't look for it to come to the US any time soon.

We had predicted the the 69th edition of the Milan International Motorcycle Show (EICMA) would, for electric motorcycles, be epic. And it was. We've already shared some of the highlights, such as the launch of the 2012 lineup from Zero Motorcycles and the splash that Evolve Motorcycles made with their Tron Light-cycle replica Xenon and the Lithium streetfighter concept, but there was more. Lots more.
