Eurobike 2010 - KTM eGnition brings electricity to freeride

Postby Aushiker » Thu Sep 09, 2010 11:17 pm

Hi

Another mountain bike with a e-motor ... courtesy of Gizmag.

The eGnition is based around KTM’s Caliber non-electric freeride bike. The battery is mounted on the underside of the downtube, with the motor located in the bottom bracket. That motor can reportedly generate 150 Nm (110.62 lb./ft.) of power, and can propel riders up inclines of up to 16 percent. The battery takes 90 minutes to recharge.

Wasn't the only eMTB at Eurobike - the show was overrun with eMTBs - and I saw a Downhill one as well - saves you walking back up the hill or paying for expensive lifts (and it was a conversion). Gary Fisher was checking it out - will post a pic soon.
