Sure the production is pretty late compared to the others, but I don't think that means it will be 2011 technology in 2014. The great aspect of the e-bike is the ability to upgrade batteries if new developments happen. KTM could make late changes to the battery, it doesn't seem that difficult. Sure the battery suppliers need lead time to make them, but every company faces that. I guess time will tell whenever they really do release it. Maybe their motto of race ready hinders them. I actually do not race, but I buy and ride motorcycles.
