KTM Duke Electric Bike Coming Soon! Expected Price, Launch Date, USPs
In the same race, the popular Austrian motorcycle producer KTM has recently revealed that they are working on the development of an all-electric bike which is expected to be named as the E-Duke.
KTM All-electric Bike E-Duke
Owned by Pierer Mobility AG & Bajaj Auto International, the automaker unveiled the upcoming EV motorcycle E-Duke.
The EV will be powered by a 10kW motor and feature a 5.5kWh battery pack.
The E-Duke most likely will be based on KTM’s Swedish counterpart Husqvarna’s E-Pilen.
Where E-Pilen is basically a concept bike which was shown last year and will turn into a production bike of its own.
It seems that the KTM E-Duke will be sharing a majority of underpinnings, internals and powertrain components with the Husqvarna E-Pilen, as per the media reports.
E-Duke Features And Specifications
The KTM’s all-electric bike is expected to outperform the country’s current most powerful electric motorcycle Tork Kratos R with its 10kW motor compared to a 9kW motor.
Coming to petrol-powered motorcycles, the E-Duke is expected to be comparable to the KTM 125 Duke, which produces 11kW (14.5hp).
Powerful Battery Pack Offered By E-Duke
As for the battery pack, the E-Duke will be featuring a class-leading 5.5 kWh fixed battery pack.
The 5.5 kWh fixed battery pack offered from the Austrian brand is sure to triumph over the capacities of vehicles like the Tork Kratos R that will come with a 4kWh battery pack, Simple One with 4.8kWh battery and also the Ola S1 Pro’s 3.97kWh battery pack.
Launch Date And Design
So far, the launch dates for the E-Duke in the country are yet to be revealed.
It seems that the Austrian EV maker has also refrained from disclosing any design details of the vehicle.
Although, the similar sharp and aggressive design language of KTM is expected to be featured in the forthcoming E-Duke.
In a latest development, Bajaj Auto International and KTM revealed that they are working on the co-development of an electric platform.
This platform will underpin two-wheelers with outputs ranging from 3kW to 10kW.
Considering the past, this new venture which is mainly focused on the development of electric scooters could also help Bajaj in launching an all-electric bike based on the E-Duke.
