Despite the attractive price, KTM manages to nestle the battery nicely into the down tube with a partial integration. The MACINA RIDE 591 LTD also has a bend in the top tube. This reduces the standover height, which makes getting on and off the bike particularly pleasant. A tribute must be paid to the price, but still: Instead of more stable thru axles, the wheels in the MACINA RIDE 591 LTD are held in the frame by conventional quick-releases.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the Active Line Plus shows. At steep sections, the somewhat weak Bosch motor requires a lot of initiative from the rider. The Bosch Active Line Plus gives off a natural riding feeling. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the KTM MACINA RIDE 591 LTD in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (3000) .

Good damping qualities are shown through the SR Suntour mid-range fork. At the brakes, KTM reaches for the bottom of the Shimano shelf and instals poor brakes with two pistons. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. When it comes to the geometry, KTM does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. The scale stays at 22,5 kg with this model. That makes the MACINA RIDE 591 LTD one of the light Einsteiger-Bikes.

Conclusion


Expirience with the KTM MACINA RIDE 591 LTD

The MACINA RIDE 591 LTD doesn't stand out among the other bikes on the market. It is overshadowed by a mediocre motor and a middle ground groupset.
