KTM Electric Bikes are in store and ready to be unleashed. So, when spring hit Chorley a couple of weeks ago, it was time to head out to test the latest KTM E MTB’s under some clear blue skies. Electric Mountain Bikes add a whole new dimension to off road riding – if riding further, faster, with less effort and more fun appeals…

KTM Macina Race 293
KTM E bikes rely on well proven and reliable Bosch motors and batteries for their power. The Macina Race 293 is a 29er aimed at off road trekking and features Shimano components and Rockshox Reba forks, see the full specification here. The quality of the components and build ensure a tough, reliable and FUN riding experience!
Not content to just bolt on a motor, KTM re-designed key components to cope with the extra demands placed on the E bike. The KTM rear hub is a great example. The hub has a slightly wider spoke angle for increased rear wheel stiffness under load. KTM’s Intuvia Display gives vital information such as battery life and setting options, including the useful walk-assist feature.
The Bosch Performance Line CX Motor provides enough power to leave you smiling and enjoying the trails like never before.
Our intrepid test pilot Rob, a long term MTB’er from way back, commented, “The bike just feels so solid, especially over the rougher, steeper terrain. It makes the climbs really amazing as well as the descents. Having double the power makes it more fun than you can shake a stick at!”
