by AatoMobil

KTM E-Duke introduction:

PIERER Mobility who is the parent company of KTM announced the development of an electric bike. This electric bike is likely to be based on the Duke’s platform. It will be called the KTM E-Duke. The details of its power output and battery capacity have been revealed to the public.

KTM E-Duke Performance figures:

The expected power output of the bike will be around 10kW. The bike will fit in the A1 license category. The European norms suggest that electric two-wheelers that max out at 11kW fall under the A1 license category. The battery pack will be a 5.5kWh lithium-ion battery, and this battery will also feature on the Husqvarna E-Pillen. Not to forget the earlier launch of the Husqvarna E-Pillen suggested it had a range of 100 km.

KTM E-Duke Marketing prospects:

KTM will target the bike for city commuters. This allows KTM to get an opportunity to showcase its EV prowess. A report suggested that 2020 witnessed a 50.5% jump in monthly registration of electric vehicles. Key markets that witnessed a surge in sales figures were – Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the U.K. It is expected that the early adoption of EV technology will reduce future costs of electrics.


KTM will also look to collaborate with local electric infrastructure to develop fast charging. KTM could join hands with Bajaj in India to co-develop the EV infrastructure. This would prove to be beneficial to both companies. The bike will be equipped with a TFT instrument cluster with mobile connectivity, navigation, keyless operation, OTA updates, and geo-fencing.

It will feature USD forks, assisted rear suspension, disc brakes at the front and rear, and an exposed multi-member chassis. The bike will fall under the plan of the Austrian-based company to focus on a cleaner electric powertrain setup. The KTM E-Duke will resemble and share components with its sibling the Husqvarna E-Pilen.
