The new KTM FREERIDE E-XC features a new KTM PowerPack with increased capacity. Rated at 3.9 kWh, the new battery provides 50 % more capacity than the previous version’s 2.6 kWh, which makes it capable of powering the electric bike for up to 1.5 hours of riding fun, depending on the riding style and terrain. More good news? It retains full backward compatibility to the previous electric KTM FREERIDE E models.Easily inserted from above, the removable KTM PowerPack sits on top of the motor, secured by four screws and well protected by the frame tubes. It is easily swapped for a fully charged one by simply flipping up the seat and opening four screws. This can be accomplished in a matter of seconds, even quicker than refueling a bike with a combustion engine.Alternatively, the KTM PowerPack can be fully charged while still mounted in the bike by using the connector beneath the seat. In terms of battery aging, even after 700 charge cycles, the KTM PowerPack will still provide 70 % of its initial capacity.
