    If I was looking at new kids bikes, I’d probably get one. The tough decision would be if I want to wait for the newer generation of GasGas influenced electric bikes to come out. That is the main reason KTM bought them, is to get their electric bike technology.

    Says who? The Cycle News interview w/ the KTM owner says it was to get their trials line. KTM/Bajaj are ahead of Gas Gas in e-bikes.

    Do you know who GasGas’ parent company is and what they are doing with electric mobility?

    Waiting isn't an option. Both kids are getting bikes for Christmas. The boy is getting a 65 and I really like the idea of an electric 50 for the girl but I don't want to be a beta tester. The lady friend isn't to excited about the idea either so I'm just trying to get more information.

    Don't know about how any of these compare, but Torrot (parent company of Gas Gas, pre KTM) has dealers in the US.

    Are you concerned about battery or electric motor issues? I have not heard about any issues with the electric Freeride, I would imagine the technology is similar. Or just get an Oset.
