At the Bike Austria show, KTM has officially announced that its E-Speed electric scooter, which was originally presented last month at the 2013 Tokyo Motorcycle Show as a concept, will enter production and is set to be introduced to the European market in 2015.
The E-Speed is the second electric model offered by KTM. You can see the details here.
“We believe in the electro-mobility on two wheels. Because offroad sport is our core area, we have developed an E-Crosser, the Freeride E, but we are also convinced that urban mobility can succeed in urban areas,” said Mr. Harald Plöckinger, KTM Executive Board Member for Production and Business Development. “Because of the very positive feedback following the Tokyo presentation, we have decided to transfer the results from the development of the E-Cross bike also into the road segment. The E-Speed is our interpretation of emission-free propulsion for city use, but without compromising on the design and sportiness of our KTM genes!” he countinued.
