KTM Files Patent For 2WD

11/17/2008 @ 10:09 pm, by Jensen Beeler1 COMMENT

KTM has filed with the German Patent Office a number of patents that cover the used of a two-wheel drive system of off-road vehicles. The patents hold claims for a two-wheel drive system that can be fitted to either an enduro or motocross type of motorcycle. KTM’s patent centers around having a conventional motor to drive the read wheel, and an electric motor for the front wheel.

This would be a different method than the hydraulic method for powering the front wheel that Yamaha has been prototyping for over a year now.

I’m still waiting for the 2WD Akira bike.
