KTM E-speed: Commuters are the
new target for electric bikes.
BETTER LIVING THROUGH
Whatever happened to the KTM
electric motocross bike? I haven’t
heard anything about it in a
Most of the electric-bike
manufacturers have found offroad
riders to be stubbornly loyal to the
internal combustion engine. They
haven’t given up on the idea of
electric dirt bikes, but have found
that the commuter-bike, play-bike,
mini-bike and scooter markets are
more accepting of electric power.
Zero, which originally focused on
dirt bikes, is now pursuing street
bikes, and KTM has a prototype
E-speed scooter in the works. ❏

YOU CAN’T MIX AND MATCH
I own a 2010 Yamaha YZ450F.
My friend just put a longer link
on his 2013 KTM 450SXF. We
measured his old KTM link and
think that it is 1mm longer than
my stock Yamaha link. I can’t
afford to buy a $225 aftermarket
link. Can I run his longer KTM link
on my YZ450F?
No. First, the 2013 KTM link is
142.5mm long, while your 2010
Yamaha link is 142.0mm long, so
the difference between the two
is only half a millimeter. Second,
the KTM link will not fit on the
YZ450F without serious machine
work and spacers.
