KTM Macina Force 272 Electric Bike
The KTM Macina Force 272 is a high performance 27.5″ hard-tail eMTB.
This monster of an off-roader delivers hugely at a very competitive price. Make no mistake, this little beast doesn’t compromise on performance or quality. Driven by the acclaimed high torque Bosch Performance CX drive system, the KTM Macina Force 272 delivers an exhilarating ride, every time. Powered by an immense 500Wh battery means endless journeys on the trails and day long fun. Simplicity defines the Force. Simple lines, but smart looks. Integrated cabling, sleek lines. Airframe silver finish. Beautiful. It boasts being a KTM with the addition of KTM’s instantly recognisable ‘orange’ flashing across the bike. This little beauty is a ‘just get on and ride’ ebike. No fuss, just thrills.
The Force 272 is fitted with RockShox XC30 suspension forks with 100mm of travel. They can be adjusted easily to suit a multitude of differing terrain. Perfect for loose ground, trails or even hard surfaces like concrete. The Force is equally at home as a commuting bike or simply for leisure. Shimano Deore M615 GS-shadow plus 10-speed gears and shifters are a delight. Each gear change is slick and immediate, just when required. There’s no compromise on brakes either, with Shimano M315 hydraulic discs bringing the Force 27 to a halt in a highly responsive manner when desired.
Continental X-King Sport tyres at 27.5″ provide the perfect base. Grippy when needed yet easy rolling too, this high performance tyre is a great all-rounder. A Selle Italia X1 Flow saddle ensure comfort with a sporty feel and complement the Force 272 perfectly. The Bosch Intuvia display mounted centrally provides comprehensive rider information. Functionality is controlled via a simple switching system within thumb reach on the left.
Weighing in at a mere 20.7kg makes the Force 272 one of the lightest eMTBs on the market. It’s agility and simplicity have a great appeal.
