KTM Macina Action 271 Electric Bike (2018)
The KTM Macina Action 271 is a no nonsense, high performance 27.5″ hardtail eMTB with an enviable pedigree.
A high torque and punchy Bosch Performance CX drives the Action 271. It comes with a 500Wh battery as standard for immense range. It features a semi-integrated motor unit and battery for sleek lines and great looks. This further enhances the already hugely appealing look of this bike. The ride is smooth, reliable and exhilarating, every time. The combination of Bosch’s CX and 500Wh battery ensures a hugeky powerful performance with extensive range to match. A nice pair of Suntour XCR 32 suspension Boost forks ensure the perfect balance of absorption and responsiveness. Strong, yet light the Suntour’s absorb the nuances of gritty trails and unforgiving surfaces with absolute ease.
A Shimano Deore M6000 GS shadow plus 10-speed derailleur and shifters ensure that this little beast means business! Its full range of 10 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. Shimano M396/395 hydraulic discs on 180mm rotors clip the Action 271’s wings when required. Agile and relatively lightweight, the Action is very much at home on or offroad. 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 271 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 271 from KTM is a great performer with good equipment and worthy of a place in any stable.
