The 2021 KTM Freeride SX-E 5: A Competition Bike For Junior MotoCross-E
The 2021 KTM Freeride SX-E 5 is a gigantic leap forward for both the enjoyment of motocross for the 2021 year, as well as for junior motocrossers that want to join the electric revolution. That is because the Freeride SX-E isn’t powered by something as coarse or rough as gas.
Instead, it is powered by a 48 Volt permanent magnet motor that delivers instantaneous torque and at max output, produces the equivalent of 6.5 HP. It’s just what we’ve come to expect from this experienced European manufacturer.
KTM and its ingenuity has invested heavily into electrification, mostly due to the emerging arena of electric motocross and electric supercross. Following on from the example set by Formula-E, these competitions are becoming more and more prevalent and KTM is leading the way.
While the SX-E is aimed squarely at junior riders, it is but the beginning of an emerging model class that KTM will compete with companies such as Yamaha, Kawasaki, and even Segway to reach the top of the podium. For junior riders that have been on a motocross bike before this one, there are 6 ride modes, from absolute beginner through to experienced racer, which unlocks the full power of the motor.
The 2021 KTM Freeride SX-E 5 starts at $5,099 USD / $5,899 CAD.
