KTM Macina Action 272 Electric Bike
The KTM Macina Action 272 Plus is a high performance 27.5″ hard-tail eMTB with an enviable pedigree.
A high torque and punchy Bosch Performance CX drives the Action 272. It comes with a 500Wh battery as standard for immense range. New for 2017 is the semi-integrated motor unit and battery. This further enhances the already hugely appealing look of this bike. The ride is smooth, reliable and exhilarating, every time. Air cushioned RockShox Recon Silver suspension forks ensure the perfect balance of absorption and responsiveness. Strong, yet light with a 32mm chassis and 100mm travel. The RockShox Recon Silver sets a new benchmark for value-based performance. Recon’s steel upper tubes are bombproof yet lighter than ever. They just went on a serious weight-loss program. Furthermore, the addition of its now-standard Motion Control™ damper has re-invented the Recon as the new silver standard for fun.
Shimano SLX M7000-11 shadow plus, DM derailleur and shifters ensure that this little beast means business! Its full range of 11 gears set across an 11-42T cassette are more than enough, and cope with everything put in its path. No climb or descent is too challenging. There’s no compromise on brakes either, with Shimano M396 hydraulic discs on 180mm rotors. bringing the Action 272 to a halt when required. Furthermore, this little gem only weighs in at 21.2kg. Smart Sam tyres are both rugged enough for loose terrain, yet provide great all-round performance on a multitude of surfaces too.
All metrics on the KTM Macina Action 272 are easy to read on the Intuvia display, mounted centrally on the handlebars. There are four levels of power assistance, and can be varied by the rider from 40% up to 225% easily, from a thumb control mounted on the handlebar.
The Macina Action 272 from KTM is a great performer with good equipment and worthy of a place in any stable.
