KTM files patent for two-wheel drive

We've got the patent image, but the question is, when will we get to ride the bike?





KTM has filed patents for a two-wheeled drive off-road bike. The patent protects the idea for the new drive system fitted to either an enduro or motocross bike.

The plans show the bike as having a standard motor to drive the rear wheel and an electric motor to take care of power to the front. According to the words attached on the patent plan: "The invention shows a vehicle with a front wheel propelled by an electric motor and the rear wheel powered by an internal combustion engine."

Filed the patent? We reckon they've probably already got the bike finished. When do you think we'll see this bike up and running, and ready for sale then?
