KTM is working hard to find new technologies that have the potential to improve the fuel efficiency of its motorcycles. Therefore it didn’t surprise us to see its fresh E-speed electric concept presented at the Tokyo Motor Show.

What is even better is the fact that the new concept will be available in showrooms as a 2015 model. The new model will join the Freeride E which is also a “green” model promised for 2014.

Needless to say that both models will share the same drive train and will be powered by a synchronous motor with permanent magnets. In terms of power the KTM E-Speed will reward its rider with a maximum output of 11 kW and 36 Nm of torque. This power will propel the scooter to a maximum speed of 85 kmph with an estimated range of 60 km.
