We have to apologise to every one else.... but we've done it again!

We've submitted a KTM to a UK magazine to test and against some strong competition in a touch sector, the KTM came out as "Best in Test" again ;)

The KTM Ventura Cross 9 is our entry level eBike with a RRP of just £1599.00, and features a Shimano Steps drive system - however as this review proves, whilst the bike and price are lightweight for an eBike... the performance is certainly anything but!

The guys at Motorhome Monthly Magazine know a thing or two about the importance of eBikes and the needs of their readers so we were pleased when they approached us to test a KTM in the "Lightweight eBike" category test they were undertaking recently.

We know its a great product but its always good to get this confirmed by experience indepentant testers.  Richard Peace tested the bikes and as an experierenced freelance cycling journalist we were very interested to read his thoughts on one of our best selling eBikes.

The bike was also awarded the full 5* for hill climbing ability.
