KTM Freeride electric MotoX leaked

First look at the KTM Freeride: Electric motorcycle photos leak from Germany — Autoblog
We first brought you news of KTM's planned debut of two new electric motorcycle only days ago. It appeared as if the world would have to wait for the Tokyo Motorcycle Show and the official March 26th release date to get its eyes on fully exposed photos.

If you were holding your breath for the unveiling, you can thank German mag Motorrad for breaking the photos early. As we can see now, the supermoto and enduro versions differ quite extensively, despite sharing a frame and power-train. The unique single crown fork protruding from a BMX-like handlebar and headtube combination holding a single headlight certainly set the slick-tired version apart from its knobby clad counterpart. We can't help but notice the rather dainty tubular steel frame on each model, despite plastic covers that give the illusion of a much beefier unit.

How much will it cost for your very own stick of 30-horsepower, 200-pound, orange-blooded electric dynamite? A proposed price of 10,000, which at current exchange rates is just over $13,500, seems in no way competitive amongst stiff competition from Zero and others already in the market. But it is still way too early to take much of an educated stand regarding KTM's charge into the electric cycle niche. We won't know anything concrete until we can put power to the ground aboard a Freeride ourselves.

I like how the motard version has adopted a cycle headset and front end. I always thought that cycle and motorcycle integration of design could exist harmoniously in a lighter electric powered motorbike. I want one!

The ZERO motorcycle has a 4kWh pack and claims 50 miles max range. The KTM has a 2.5 kWh pack. Rough estimate would be 30 miles.
