In-Detail: KTM’s SX-E 5 (Electric-Model)

1 year ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Jarrad Duffy

The future of our beloved fuel-burning sport and what direction it’s heading in, is a controversial one – especially at this point in our lives, with so much action being taken against the big oil, fuel and mining companies and how they are affecting our planet. The fact of the matter is that none of us really like the sound of riding an electric bike (quite literally), but what if they’re actually better than the fossil-burning steeds we ride now? With the launch of KTM’s new SX-E 5 (Junior Electric-Model), there have been quite a few points brought up by not only KTM, but also by the young guns who are actually piloting these bad boys. We recently caught up with KTM’s Customer & Technical Services Manager, Rob Tweryould, to get an insight into this game-changing machine.

It’s all well and good to hear how great a bike is from the people who made it. But as we stated before, what do the kids who are riding them think of it? Check out what ‘Pocket Rocket’ Huckson Deegan (and his old man, Brian) has to say about KTM’s SX-E 5 when he compared it back-to-back with his two-stroke SX65…
