KTM all purpose cross bike – Price Reduced by 15%
Sporty and dynamic , this was one of our most popular bikes in 2016. We have 3 left in a small (46 cm frame with lower, cross bar), medium (51 cm) and large (56 cm.) With the price now below £1700 this represents excellent value.
The motor on the bike is (new for 2018) the Bosch Active line. This is lighter than the other motors in the Bosch range and while it is less powerful in the high levels of assistance (maximum of 250% assistance) it is lighter and there is no resistance. This means that if you are using the bike with no assist it is easier to pedal, and apart from being a bit heaver than a normal bike it is otherwise the same. This is ideal if you are looking for a bike that will give you some assistance when you want it but will also let you work a bit when you are feeling like it. The 400Wh battery can carry you for up to 75 miles depending on terrain and the assistance level used, and is easy and quick to charge, taking 4.5 hours from flat. If used in mixed levels of assistance and on variable terrain the range of the battery will be between 40 and 50 miles.
Components on the Bike
This is a sporty looking bike – indeed with its suspension and forward sitting position it is close to being a mountain bike but still very practical for the roads as well.
It is equipped with 9 speed derailleur gears, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and 80 mm travel front forks. It also has tyres, which at 42 mm wide are a good hybrid tyre.
It does not come wth mudguards but these can easily be added together with a rack, The combined price for these, all fitted is £80.
This range of bikes from KTM has been our most popular bike for the past 3 years. KTM make excellent bikes and are better built and better value than a number of the better known brands. At £1699 this is superb value.
