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.
Teasers... generally the small, grainy, purposely-blurred or otherwise difficult to decipher images don't give away very much and are used to generate excitement for a new product before its official announcement. Usually, it takes a keen eye to pull out any detail from the resulting wreckage. Such is the case with the latest teaser image from Mavizen, the company that's planning to release a new twin-motor electric racebike inspired by the TTXGP-winning electric racer from Team Agni.
