KTM Macina Fun 9 P5 Electric Bike (2018)
The Macina Fun 9 P5 from KTM is an individually styled touring e-bike with bags of features and stunning good looks.
Most noticeable on this beautiful creature is the centrally located battery position. KTM have engineered a unique frame design to facilitate a central location, and low centre of gravity. This provides even greater levels of stability when riding. Unobtrusively positioned, the huge 500Wh battery can be charged both on and off the bike. Removed with ease, the semi-integrated battery is seated within the sleek contours of the frame.
The KTM Macina Fun 9 P5 is designed for just that – fun! Packed with features and touring kit, the Fun is an affordable trekking e-bike that uses the powerful Bosch Performance drive for smooth, uninterrupted delivery of acceleration. It’s also semi-integrated into the frame, enhancing further the aesthetics. Combine that with a whopping 500Wh battery and the result is a powerful hill climber with fantastic range.
The Bosch Intuvia display is the perfect on-board computer with a crystal clear display and separate, thumb-controlled unit. In addition, the Intuvia has a USB port enabling the rider to charge a mobile phone or MP3 player whilst on the move. There’s even a ‘walk-assist’ feature that allows the bike to be wheeled under its own steam. The Shimano Deore 9-speed derailleur gears work in harmony with the Bosch Performance motor, thanks to its ‘tuning derailleur gear’ function. This means that smooth shifting is guaranteed, thanks to the way the sensors operate inside the drive unit. No jerky, clanking gear changes!
The quality of the build and attention to detail is second to none. The Macina Fun 9 P5 is designed for comfort. It features a sprung seat-post and super comfy Selle Royal gel saddle. The Suntour front forks are very forgiving and absorb all those nasty bumps and hollows.
Featuring wide Schwalbe Energizer Plus tyres for stability and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, the KTM Macina Fun 9 P5 is hard to beat.
