Let’s take a gander and see what KTM gave us for next-gen scoots, yeah?
We already know the predecessor SX-E 3 to be an 86-lb little ripper with a 40-mph top speed – nothing to sniff at, though the $4,999 USD price tag hits the higher end of the spectrum for this category of bikes.
The new SX-E 2, by contrast, delivers the perfect bit of punt to upgrade from Team Orange’s SX-E 1.20 stability cycle. Weighing in at 59.5 lbs and featuring nifty perks like a 2-level adjustable seat height, this new electric racer also allows users to lower their bike’s fork (and adjust the footpegs) for the ultimate customized ride.
Other neat features on KTM’s new wee SX-E include rollover sensors, a wrist lanyard key, swappable batteries and a system that won’t allow access to power until the rider rolls the throttle forward, initiating a vibration to let the kid know that they’re safe to mount/head off.
The above handy tech joins KTM’s 1.8kW motor capable of 50 Nm of yank that takes only 60 minutes to charge to 100% capacity.
