For sale is my KTM Macina Cross 8 E-bike- 2014
The bike is now running a Lipo 42V pack and VESC set to 45a- so torque and top speed are considerably increased from standard
Its good for 35mph (where legally permitted) and a range of around 30-40 miles depending on rider weight and terrain etc.
The throttle is now a thumb throttle that can be engaged at any time
I have also added an onboard DC transformer that runs the Front Cree LED headlamp and rear Led lighting
Due to the increased power now available I have also increased the front sprocket to a 22T which allows much better use of all the gears.
The bike is fitted with an 8 speed Shimano Nexus internal hub gear set and the gears changes seamlessly- it’s a wonderful piece of kit
I have also fitted a new set of 175mm alloy crank arms and Oddesy Bear trap pedals for increased foot platform
The frame is a large – I am 5” 10” and I can ride it comfortably
The bike will come with a 2a 10s charger ,higher rating power supply’s can be bought on Ebay but this charges easily over night or whilst your at work for the ride home.
I have put over 350miles on the bike commuting to work and it performs flawlessly.
I have a set of mudguards ,spare chain a 19T and 18T front sprocket and original hand grips and some ancillary parts from the original electrical system including the original speed controller/torque sensor that was housed inside the gearbox
The bike also has a 3D printed Phone holder (Galaxy S7 Edge)and smaller front mudguard fitted
These in standard condition go for over £1400 on ebay
I have videos of it in action and a full build log if your interested – please just PM me.
The only reason for sale is to fund a new project.
Local pick up only as the bike is obviously quite heavy and I would prefer to show the buyer around the bike before the first ride.
I am based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
