Hmmm, looks interesting. Just about the right timing I think. There are several people that I know would love to own a bike like this, including myself. But, you probably cold just buy a trials bike, and plate it for alot less. Wish it would not have such a high price tag.

Street legal, 24 hp and 80 pounds lighter than a WR250R? Sounds like a winner to me, they're gonna sell a bunch.

Where are you guys getting this idea that it has a high price tag? Has KTM released a price yet...?

The idea of this Freeride is to share components with the electric Freeride in order to allow larger batches and lower costs for both. This is NOTHING like the 350 currently in stores. It's also likely that KTM may take advantage of their relationship with Bajaj on this one and produce it at a lower cost, similiar to the 125 Duke.

Considering that I just bought a street legal MXC 200 specifically to have a 220 pound play bike, I totally get the point of that bike.

That thing must be a freight train, or 747 tugger... B/c my 250 has more horsepower than that...

I think your missing the point a bit there...

But I wouldn't get to excited anyway.

Visor down have a reputation for making up stories about up coming models, and there are a few claims in the story that are a bit hard to swallow.


Edit, KTM.com has a article on it so I guess I'm wrong about it being a bit hard to swallow.

If I can get one plated in California I would buy it. Geting a sub 260lb. bike with a plate and able to do single track is a problem in CA.

It says Road Legal next to the bike picture.

So what happened to the electric freeride? End of story? Too heavy? Too expensive? Too limited range?

Looks for real. The engine should be fairly bulletproof with that output. Street legal is nice too.

That may be the only thing that could get me to ride an orange motorcycle!
