KTM: 2-Wheel Drive Patent
Via RILYSI, it looks like KTM, the respected Austrian Motorcycle manufacturer, has applied for a patent for a 2-Wheel drive, hybrid motorcycle. Even more interesting is that they’ve apparently fast-tracked it to production sometime in the next 24 months.
The word is that it will have an internal combustion engine driving the rear wheel, and an electric engine driving the front wheel.
Coming on the heels of KTM’s expected zero-emissions Enduro racer, it looks like KTM should change its flagship color from orange to green.
Except that Kawasaki already took that color.
