    When is GG going to start selling the TXT-E? Then we can forget about electric starters/kick starters.

    :rofl
    Ahhh, if only for a clutch......
    The same guys that will not buy an e bike because of the lack of a real clutch are often the same guys that say not to use the clutch!! :scratch

    .....and....I don’t know if it’s just me, but the electric whine of these bikes is super annoying and loud. I’m out for now.

    I am surprised you can still hear high pitched noises. Don’t worry, you will not be able to hear them soon.

    Already there. I can only tell if I fart from the vibrations.

    I took notice of the transmission too. I wonder if KTM got the memo?

    They may have gotten the memo...I doubt if they have done anything about it.

    Kick starting a Sherco 250 is easy for me, almost brainless. Then again, I'm a highly machine aware efficient kicker who never had a problem starting a 300 GasGas.

    I have ridden a hot event and by day two had a leg wanting to cramp while kick starting, so I'd consider the magic button. But everything comes at some cost. The magic button on TRS means maybe 30 parts including a battery.

    Does the electric start TRS also have a 3-phase alternator with 4-wire regular-rectifier? That sure looks like a 3-phase stator in the illustration. If so, that's good for better lights too.

    I'm certainly ageing, so paying for no kicking gets more appealing every year. As for the while of an electric bike, my tinnitus is already doing that:rayof I'm not giving up on the miracle-liquid-fuel bikes until forced to by people who don't understand energy density:wave
