The KTM Dukes subsequent section of lifestyles become certain to be electric powered. Hence, it comes as no wonder as an investor record of Pierer Mobility AG, KTMs discern company, has discovered the life of the e-Duke. The upcoming electric powered KTM bare can have the intellectual insanity of its ICE cousins however the specifications arent as promising as of its old petrol powered KTM Duke.
For starters, KTM E Duke shares its powertrain and is based on the same platform as the sister company Husqvarna’s E Pilen concept which was announced last year.
Battery and Motor of KTM E-Duke
The bike is powered by a fixed 5.5kWh lithium-ion battery pack connected to a 10kW (nominal) electric motor. The two electric bikes are based on the same platform, but target two different target groups. The E-Duke has a 5kWh lithium-ion battery, which is fixed and non-replaceable. But according to some rumors flowing around the market, KTM may introduce swappable battery pack of lithium ion if initial manufactured E Dukes are liked by audience and sold rapidly.
Range of KTM E-Duke
According to information provided by big name on automobile, the new KTM E-Duke will be able to give range of more than 100 kms on full charge of its 5.5KWh lithium ion battery pack which is comparatively enough range for an electric bike on this performance driven world of ICE bikes.
For a performance bike, it feels like a big disappointment. Hopefully, by the time the bike hits the road, battery technology should have made enough progress to provide a better range.

Overview of KTM E-Duke
E- Duke is likely to fall into the ICE 200cc motorcycle segment in terms of performance. Besides E-Duke, the investor presentation also featured KTM E10, Freeride E LV and Husqvarna E-Pilen. As this EV is being manufactured by leading motorcycle manufacturer KTM, so we can expect some amazing features on this EV which might not be present in other two-wheeler EV on this segment.
The E-Duke and E-Pilen share many similarities in terms of platforms and powertrains, the only difference being in the bodywork, where the E-Duke gets the KTM’s strongest appeal. Quite similar to how Husqvarna’s Vitpilen and Svartpilen are based on KTM’s Duke line.
The electric two-wheeler space has grown exponentially not only in India but globally, and KTM has dipped its foot in the game with its entry-level E-Duke. It will take a while for E-Duke to reach our shores. Till time let’s wait and watch regarding the development of production of the newest EV from KTM.
