Chance to experience electric off-road motorbike

When you read the term EV it generally conjures up the image of a four-wheeled electric vehicle. But it needn’t be so. The UK’s first dedicated electric motorcycle riding facility is now open and is available for riders to experience the all-new KTM Freeride-E.

An official partner of KTM UK, E-SCAPE, in Cheshire, is a bespoke facility for electric bikes and offers tuition and test ride opportunities for riders of all abilities on KTM’s recently launched electrically driven off-road motorcycle.

The Freeride E is the world’s first fully-fledged electric off-road motorcycle. It is available in two versions; the E-SX (for closed course riding) and the E-XC (which can be registered for riding on public roads).

These two models are aimed at a vast array of riders including those wishing to ride in urban areas, or complete beginners to motorcycling and is also capable of satisfying the more seasoned off-roader.

E-SCAPE brings together a unique mix of technology, style and off-road fun in an easily accessible location. The aim of the facility is to introduce off-road riding to those who are completely new to the sport and provide high quality riding tuition so that riders get the most enjoyment out of these next-generation off-road bikes. The motorcycles on-site are charged from 100 per cent renewable energy sources.
