Freeride E in Australia?

Does anyone have any gossip on this?

I have heard no solid rumours for Aus, but the revamped Freeride E is going to be released in Europe properly, as well as the U.S in limited numbers.

It is interesting that the Aus website now shows this: http://www.ktm.com/au/e-ride/freeride-e-xc-1/

Basically, page removed.......

As of a few days ago it had info on the Freeride with a sub line "never say never". I figured this was a hint at a limited release, which I figured would be announced soon.

I'd love to get one. Totally happy with the reviews and info on battery range, would make an awesome second bike.

Alternatively, if it's not coming to Aus and someone has some top secret KTM links in the U.S or Europe who can help get one, feel free to send me a PM

Piece of cake Ben. I can arrange for a new US model to be shipped to your door.
The US ads for the new model have been filmed so they can't be too far off.

I had a reply from KTM Australia when I asked about this bike - "No plans to bring it out to Oz at this stage..".

So we're left with our primitive combustion powered oranges for ripping up walking tracks and disturbing wildlife.

Nice

That would be very much appreciated. Thought you may be the man for the job.
Will be in contact by PM.

Pity they're not coming as a regular model, hopefully it's only a matter of time.
