E-Nduro; electric adventure riding for novices or experts reviewed

 

Date reviewed: August 2019 | Tested by: Kane Dalton | Price: from £99 | www.e-nduro.co.uk

 

Electric bikes might well be the saviour of off-road riding. More and more off-road centres are suffering from problems with noise and the whirr of an electric motor is much more sociable than open-piped four-stroke engines bashing against the redline.

But electric bikes have other advantages too. Without a clutch or gearbox to operate they make an ideal introduction to motorcycling for newbies in a safe off-road environment.

E-Nduro in Dorset is one such centre. It’s a great facility with plenty of different options including a five-mile off-road circuit and seven-mile one too. These longer rides make for a proper adventure, closer to an Enduro circuit than a short motocross track where you complete 20 laps in the time it takes to do one five-mile loop of the bigger circuit.

E-Nduro uses KTM’s electric Freeride E-XC, which is one of those bikes that can be both challenging enough for experts but suitable for newbies too.

BikeSocial sent our tame off-roader Kane Dalton along to sample the experience.
