2012 KTM 350 freeride
Now have a look at this thumper guys. A real toy from KTM I think ...

Holy crap. 220lbs. That weighs less than the moto version:clap

Looks like a Trials bike with a seat! Fun!

Hmmm, looks interesting. Just about the right timing I think. There are several people that I know would love to own a bike like this, including myself. But, you probably cold just buy a trials bike, and plate it for alot less. Wish it would not have such a high price tag.

Considering that I just bought a street legal MXC 200 specifically to have a 220 pound play bike, I totally get the point of that bike.

Street legal, 24 hp and 80 pounds lighter than a WR250R? Sounds like a winner to me, they're gonna sell a bunch.:deal

That thing must be a freight train, or 747 tugger... B/c my 250 has more horsepower than that...

If I can get one plated in California I would buy it. Geting a sub 260lb. bike with a plate and able to do single track is a problem in CA.

I think your missing the point a bit there...

But I wouldn't get to excited anyway.

Visor down have a reputation for making up stories about up coming models, and there are a few claims in the story that are a bit hard to swallow.

Edit, has a article on it so I guess I'm wrong about it being a bit hard to swallow.

So what happened to the electric freeride? End of story? Too heavy? Too expensive? Too limited range?

Velociraptor 10-18-2011 04:07 PM

Looks for real. The engine should be fairly bulletproof with that output. Street legal is nice too.

lamotovita 10-18-2011 04:39 PM

That may be the only thing that could get me to ride an orange motorcycle!

Very nice! Now if it comes with a wide ratio six speed transmission
I might be heading down to Moore and Sons with my checkbook.

5 Liter Fuel Tank?:huh
Carbon Fiber Frame another.:huh
Modern epoxy resins are great and strong but I'm not sure I want to really trust it for my BIKE..... :deal

24HP doesn't a China scooter make more than that now? :lol3

ADVJake 10-18-2011 08:38 PM

its got the same power to weight as the WR250R so i doubt it will feel too sluggish, the torque will be much better.
sounds like they've tuned it for economy, 5 liters will get you far enough.
