Dunno about the seat height, but it should be quiet -

I guess with the muffler and filter arangment we know why it doesn't/can't make the peak power of the 350EXC.

A bigger tank would be hard with the std tank under the seat between the frame rails and a plastic subframe.

I'm actually wondering what the Freeride E will go for. Sounds like a good back yard trials practice bike. (an bit of mx practice on a bmx track).

Electric version




Quote:
KTM unveiled the Freeride E, their first production version of an electric zero emission off-road motorcycle this week, the Austrian manufacturer’s newest edition to their line-up still looks like a blast to ride while protecting the enviroment.
Power come from a brushless, synchronous motor and 300V battery which produces 30bhp (22kW) at 6000rpm and 31ftlb of torque at just 500rpm. It supposedly gives you 45 minutes of trail riding autonomy before being recharged, which takes 90 minutes.
KTM has yet to finalize the price of the Freeride E, but aims to keep it under € 10.000.

Ossa has one

I guess it's a similar philosophy. It has the Ossa fuel-injected, backward-facing two-stroke, but it doesn't have Julian Dupont.
