Based on the specs, it would become the most powerful electric motorcycle in India; The title of the most powerful electric motorcycle currently belongs to Tork Kratos R.
E-Duke is expected to be based on Husqvarna’s E-Pilen, a concept bike shown last year. Which will turn into a production bike of its own. According to, Media reports indicate that the Husqvarna E-Pilen and KTM E-Duke share most of their underpinnings, internals, and powertrain components. Subsequently, when compared to petrol-powered motorcycles, the E-Duke is expected to be comparable to the KTM 125 Duke. Which produces 11kW (14.5hp). As for the battery pack, the E-Duke will be featuring a class-leading 5.5 kWh fixed battery pack.
This offered capacity from the Austrian brand is sure to triumph over the capacities of vehicles like the Tork Kratos R, which will come with a 4kWh battery pack, Simple One with 4.8kWh battery, and also the Ola S1 Pro’s 3.97kWh battery pack. As exciting as that sounds, we must remember that it will be a while before the KTM E-Duke is launched.
A launch date for the upcoming electric bike has not yet been decided by the automaker. Considering the E-Duke is still in the development stages. It is no surprise that we have yet to see a test mule of the KTM e-bike. We’re sure it won’t be long before a spy shot or two makes its way online.
