Best Electric Dirt Bikes 2023

Electric dirt bikes are getting better all the time. Choices were limited not too long ago, with price and battery life being the main drawbacks. A competitive model would have set you back 12,000 and may only have delivered an hour or so of usable riding time. KTM was definitely ahead of the curve with their Freeride electric dirt bike upon its initial release.

TeamMA spent some time studying the options for rider who wants something a little different. Electric motocross bikes have started making appearances at major events, and they even have dedicated classes at certain tournaments. With the world moving rapidly towards electric vehicles, electric dirt bikes are the wave of the future.

Best electric Dirt Bikes For Adults

With more options to choose from than ever before, there’s never been a better time to invest in an adult electric dirt bike. As with any dirt bike, they all have their differences in both preferences and cost. Choosing an electric dirtbike brand is an important part of the buying process, and being informed is the first step. Before we look at some buying tips, check out some of the best electric dirt bikes for adults below!

KTM Freeride E-XC – The Best Overall Electric Dirt Bike

The KTM Freeride E-XC just gets better and better in 2023. Giving us a glimpse as to just how reliable electric off-road motocross is already. An 80-minute charge time will return around 60 to 90 minutes of riding depending on the terrain, with power storage and delivery from 360 Lithium-ion cells. This charging constraint does mean that an all-day adventure ride is a tricky proposition, but it’s not impossible if you have enough charged power packs and are riding with support.

The KTM Freeride range is for shorter track or leisure rides. With 22bhp and 42Nm of torque on tap from the brushless, permanent magnetic synchronous electric motor, the power comes in immediately, and it’s comparable with a 125cc gas-powered dirt bike.

KTM has produced two competent machines worthy of any MX circuit. The SX is the more focused circuit machine, and the XC is more of an enduro machine. Neither of these dirt bikes are toys. We spoke with KTM in Plymouth, UK and they describe the Freeride-E as

remarkably quick. It takes you by surprise. I guess the weirdest thing is the lack of engine noise, and the fact it is more like a twist and go.

When it comes to power delivery, there are three mapping modes available. Setting one is the softest and is most similar to a wet weather setting. It has a slower power delivery and a more sedated top end. Setting two starts softly and increases sharply in power towards the top end of the curve. Setting three is the full-fat MX mode, and it’s most comparable to a 250cc four-stroke dirt bike.

KTM has installed moisture sensors that shut down the motor if any moisture is detected, and as such, riding in deep water is not recommended. The Freeride range comes with the same quality of components that you would find on other KTM models. At 97 kilograms, with a 27 kilogram power pack, the bikes handle exceptionally well and turn almost instinctively.

Tracking ruts is effortless, and the well-balanced design means that the Freeride does everything you would expect of a top-end enduro bike. Freeride electric bikes are quickly earning their place among their contemporaries, and they’ll only keep getting better and better.

best, electric, dirt, bikes, 2023

However, let’s be clear here. KTM electric dirt bikes are thoroughbred off-road bikes, and they are fully competitive for short race sessions or casual rides when covering lots of miles is not a requirement. While used is always an option, a new Freeride electric motocross bike will run you around 11,299.

Why we chose this model

Above the other models on this list, the Freeride range was a breakout addition to the electric dirt bike world, and features like the moisture sensor and mapping modes have set KTM apart from their early competitors. Compared to other electric dirt bikes, you’d be most likely to find the KTM Freeride E-XC on the used dirt bike market simply because of how well known KTM is as a brand. As long as you’re aware of the potential conditions and power challenges that you’ll face while riding, we recommend the Freeride for its rugged power and durability.

Battery 18 kW Lithium-ion KTM PowerPack

Best Electric Dirt Bikes – Stark Varg

Stark Future is changing minds about just how impressive electric mx dirt bikes can get. As of January 2023, the Stark Varg has much to brag about. 80 HP beats out the horsepower of most four-stroke dirt bikes in the industry, and the Stark Varg is supposed to offer up to 100 fully customizable power profiles depending on what you need out of it that day.

‘Varg’ is Swedish for wolf, so it’s no wonder this adult electric dirt bike is a beastly competitor. Power isn’t the only thing to boast about on the Stark Varg Electric Dirt Bike. Since this marvel is built around its water-cooled engine, the frame weighs only about half of what a comparable gas-powered dirt bike would. The motor is also encased in a carbon fiber sleeve for even more lightweight maneuverability.

Runtime is similarly increased thanks to the massive 6 kWh battery upgrade that Stark Future has compared to the longevity of a full tank of gas on a 450cc dirt bike. Instead of recharging your electric enduro bike every hour or two, the Stark Varg will allegedly last up to six hours of trail time or a full motocross championship.

Since an estimated 20% of dirt bike tracks have closed due to noise issues, the Stark Varg makes it feasible to ride where it was previously not possible. With no gas or oil to maintain, the Stark Varg won’t need more maintenance than a normal bicycle according to Stark Future.

The Varg features a rugged phone holder on the handlebars, with an optional Android phone to boot. Even if you use your own phone, pop it in to control the many power profiles and select five to have on hand during your day out. The battery is also rated at IP69, meaning complete waterproofing and the wild capability to ride underwater if you end up in a sticky situation.

TeamMA continues to be super impressed by the Varg and all of its potential capabilities. We’ll be excited to see if this new competitor actually holds up to the power that Stark claims. As of early 2023, the Stark Varg is available for reservation from Stark Future for a 100 deposit and is expected in March of 2023. The basic model will set you back almost 13,000, but this is a small price to pay to ride this futuristic model.

Why we chose this model

What’s not to love about the Stark Varg Electric Dirt Bike? So many different companies have attempted to do what Stark Future is doing now, and it will be the most groundbreaking development in electric motocross bikes if their claims hold water. Between the versatility of adjustment in power modes, longevity of riding, superior construction and attention to detail, the Stark Varg is an electric dirt bike to watch out for.

Battery 6 kWh Stark VARG battery

Weight 110 kilograms / 242 pounds
Frame Material Ultralight tubular chromoly steel
Ground Clearance 310 millimeters
Price 12,900

Cake Kalk OR Race

This Swedish made Cake Kalk OR Race electric dirt bike is a bold addition to the ever growing off-road category. They also produce a road legal version. The look/design will make you stand out along with premium Öhlins suspension, 3 braking modes and 3 ride modes, to use as an exploration machine, or an explosive performance tool.

We at TeamMA were impressed by the styling and quality of build and parts, however, it comes at a price, starting at 14,370, it is the most expensive electric dirt bike on this list. For that you get a top speed of 56mph / 90kmh with up to 3 hours of range with only 165-pound weight. It really feels like a game-changer in most respects.

CAKE connect is an app that you can use to help optimise your experience. Service reminders, ride statistics, diagnostics and ride mode customizations really make you feel in control and at one with your machine.

Why we chose this model

With 280Nm (207ft/lb) of torque at the wheel with only 165 pounds/75kg of weight provides instant movement that you can really feel. Combined with premium components, superb build quality and an impressive 11.75”/300mm ground clearance, means you can really be competitive with any gas-powered dirt bike on the market with comparable size. Plus the design is a real “head turner”.

The fact that there are 26 outlets selling/servicing the CAKE brand in the all over the United States alone, means that there is good support and after-sales. Even though they are Swedish based, they have a good reputation and is more comprehensive than much of the competition.

However, the price is as premium as the bike. For over 14,000, you really have to be committed to the experience and would not recommend for the novice. If you do, am sure you will love it, but there might be better options for your personal finances and expectations.

Battery 50Ah/2.6kWh Premium 18650 lithium cells
Weight 75 kilograms / 165 pounds
Frame Material 6061 aluminium – extruded, forged and CNC machined
Seat Height 926 millimeters
Ground Clearance 300 millimeters

Kuberg Freerider Electric Dirt Bike

The Kuberg Freerider is an excellent entry-level electric dirt bike adults and kids alike can test out for a smaller investment. With aggressive motocross looks and fun graphics, the Kuberg is a competent off-roader geared towards both teens and adults. It has a top speed of 46 mph, weighs in at a total 40 kilograms and it boasts up to 2 hours of riding time. Full recharge time is around 1.5 or 2.5 hours (optional extended battery), but slightly over one hour will get you about an 80% recharge.

Kuberg offers different choices in terms of wheels and suspension so that you can tailor your bike to your needs for height, power and wheel base dimensions. In many ways, the Freerider is the perfect electric dirt bike for a newcomer for its price and accessibility.

Based on our ride on the Freerider, the centralized location of the controller and resulting sensitivity really helps you get going in a hurry, and the single speed transmission means there’s no shifting to worry about. Mid-range riders will fit the Freerider perfectly with an 876-millimeter seat height, and 11 horsepower gave us even powerband control without feeling overwhelming.

Why we chose this model

The Kuberg Freerider is ultra-lightweight and ideal for either youngsters new to the sport or veterans who want an easy transition into electric dirtbikes. The Freerider is a solid investment for decent power without being overloaded and you won’t break the bank like some other high-end models.

Battery 14kW Power Force Lithium-ion polymer 48V battery
Power 11 horsepower
Weight 40 kilograms / 88 pounds
Frame Material Poweder-coated steel double-cradle tube
Seat Height 876 millimeters

Sur Ron Light Bee X Electric Dirt Bike

The Sur-Ron Light Bee X weighs in at a modest 83 kilograms, making for quick work and easy handling on your track of choice. The 60V removable battery pack provides an easy recharge that ranges anywhere from 2.5 to 3.5 hours. A slick LCD handlebar dashboard comes standard with a digital speedometer and USB charger for any power emergencies that might arise.

As far as performance, we love that the light weight lends itself to a robust 45 degree climbing range for more aggressive rides on this electric mx dirt bike. The combination of a thicker and wider seat provides a comfortable ride on most terrain types. Though we found that it doesn’t quite scream along like some other models, the Light Bee X is a smooth, dependable ride for a rider new to the game.

Unlike most other models, the Sur Ron Light Bee X comes in a choice of silver, black or blue depending on your desired starting line look. Though it comes with LED lights, we’re still crossing our fingers for a street-legal version of this electric motocross bike sometime soon.

Why we chose this model

The Light Bee X is perfect for beginner riders with its adjustable seat height range, lightweight frame and affordable price point. The quiet ride is a plus for low-noise pollution environments, and while the powerband may leave some to be desired for more experienced riders, it’s ideal for learning and easy manoeuvring.

The Light Bee X is definitely the most “bang for buck” electric dirt bike on the market, with lots of after market mods available to suit your needs.

Battery 6kW Panasonic 60V Lithium removable battery

Electric Motion EM Escape – 2023

Made in the US, the EM Escape is a small but mighty ride. With a 38-mile range and three map settings varying from low to high power, it’s no surprise that this model is described as being best for ‘discrete, long distance backcountry exploration.’

We were impressed with both the ability to toss this 183-pound electric enduro bike around as well as the 46.5 mph / 75 kph speeds. Even though this can cut into your mileage range, it sure is fun to zip around on while you’re riding trails. The enhanced seat doesn’t hurt either, especially after all that time in the saddle.

New for 2023:

ANTI-REVERSE

A significant new safety feature for 2023, all Electric Motion models now feature our Anti-Reverse system. Anti-Reverse keeps the bike from rolling away in the event that the the rider fails a steep ascent. At speeds from 0 to 3mph, the rider can instantly lock the back wheel by pushing the grey button on the handlebar.

IMPROVED BRAKE PEDAL TIP

Now made of aluminum for improved quality, better control surface, and more traction against your boot.

DOMINO THROTTLE

Improved sensitivity and throttle control come from the better mechanical system on the new Domino throttle.

NEW LINKAGE

New linkage ratio for 2023 improve rear-suspension performance and increase rear wheel grip in all situations.

As always, you can easily manage your traction control on this adult electric dirt bike with a switch. The top left of the handlebar controls traction, while the bottom switch controls the map setting. Switch between green (low power), blue (medium power) or red (high power) to set your vibe for the day. You’re also able to choose between a switch that controls the braking system for battery recharge, or a clutch-like lever to cut power to the rear wheel.

The one drawback is that the EM Escape takes a bit over four hours to fully charge, and it’s not as reduced as we’d like even with Electric Motion’s upgraded charger. In case you’re not quite satisfied with the power that the EM Escape electric dirt bike brings, the Escape R is a solid choice for upgrades like a hydraulic clutch and high-capacity battery.

Why we chose this model

Electric Motion has integrated some exciting features into the EM – 2023 and we love to see the result. The low 820-millimeter seat height means almost anyone can get in on the fun, and easy left-hand controls offer a variety of options that aren’t super common yet on electric enduro motorbikes. Just be sure to come prepared with an extra battery or plan ahead for the generous charging time on your day out.

Battery 11kW Lithium-ion 50.4V battery
Power 16 horsepower
Weight 83 kilograms / 183 pounds
Frame Material 15CDV6 Steel
Seat Height 820 millimeters
Ground Clearance 320 millimeters
Price 10,499

ZERO FX Road Legal Electric Dirt Bike

The ZERO FX ZF7.2 for 2023 from Zero Motorcycles has been added to this list as the only Road Legal dirt bike because we felt it deserved this spot for being the most versatile all-rounded dirt bike that you won’t need a trailer for. It’s sold as a dual-sport, meaning it is good for both road and off-road, which can be argued to make it average in both. However, many people appreciate that adaptability.

Peak power of 46hp, peak torque of 78 ft-lb (106 Nm) with a top speed of 85mph are pretty impressive numbers, however, the company does admit that those figures are not maintainable for too long before the battery runs down.

Showa forks and rear suspension, a reasonably light weight of 289 lb (131 kg) combined with a good 7.2KW battery with regenerative braking, makes it a very reasonable deal for 12,995. 5 years unlimited mileage warranty also give you the peace of mind that the company takes it’s quality and customers seriously.

Some not so great things

We can’t help but point out a few down sides… the main one being that you will need to live near your favourite dirt track, with only 69 miles @55 mph combined riding (meaning including stop and starts at lights), it won’t leave you much time to have fun on your best bit of dirt.

Charging times are also very high… 9.2 hours to 95% with a standard charger is extremely high, however with extra accessory chargers, this is reduced to 1.3 hours. However, you really need to keep in mind that with the standard charger only, you will realistically only get 1 ride of between 50-80 miles per day!

However, don’t let its downfalls with battery life and charging time stop you, it is still a great all-rounder as happy on-road as off-road. Easy to use, competent and you can do your daily around town runs with ease and no trailer.

Battery 11 kW Z-Force Li-Ion intelligent integrated
Power 46 horsepower
Weight 131 kilograms / 289 pounds
Frame Material Oval steel trellis
Seat Height 881 millimetres

Best Electric dirt bikes – What you need to know

Whether you’re interested in the fastest electric motocross bike or the best electric dirt bike with the longest range, it all comes down to the battery. The power, capacity and weight of the given battery is critical. Modern design has led to Rapid advances in battery technology, although long distances timeframes are still problematic. Short sessions at a dirt bike race track or sub-three-hour trail rides are about as much as you can do.

A portable generator is always handy if you intend on riding in remote spots, which isn’t a huge addition considering you’re probably already hauling your electric motocross bike on a flatbed or trailer. The principal factor when comparing battery life is the amount of power on tap. Think of the battery as your fuel tank and the electricity it stores as your petrol. Electric is measured in KwH (kilowatt hours), so a higher the KwH rating means you’ll go even further. As with a petrol bike, the harder you hit the throttle, the more juice you will use.

Well balanced weight distribution

Weight distribution is another factor to consider when looking at electric enduro bikes. Lithium batteries are heavy. Then again, so are engines, fuel and frames. The best electric dirt bikes make use of battery weight in the right places, and this creates a low centre of gravity. When done right, the battery can be incorporated into the frame design to help balance the machine.

Finally, you need to look at power modes. Most decent electric enduro bikes will offer power mapping to adjust the rate of power consumption and how that is turned into power at the back wheel. With these basics satisfied, look at the quality of the suspension and the brakes.

Electric Dirt Bikes – The Benefits

Industry leaders are banking on kids starting young with electric motocross bikes. Since so much of older generations have been hooked by the sounds and smell of motocross, it’s clear why they’re not keen on a quiet ride. However, peewee bikes can still have their downfalls with stalling and learning to shift, and this can be a huge road block to enjoyment depending on the experience.

Even with adults, the 4-stroke powerband is often preferred since it’s a more straightforward and dependable ride. As technology advances, electric dirt bikes are improving to the degree of matching the 4-stroke model and almost surpassing it to become the superior ride. Since noise pollution is a barrier for many young riders, electric alternatives offer a chance for youngsters to practice regularly and enjoy their electric mx dirt bikes with friends. Parks, beaches and trails can be rethought as new areas for riding!

Electric dirt bikes for kids are the wave of the future, and we love seeing how this will lead to the evolution of the dirt bike industry. Improvements are made year over year, and we’re hopeful for a more affordable model soon. As the technology becomes easier to create, we’ll cross our fingers for more companies to fill the 3000 to 12,000 void in the next few years!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the fastest electric dirt bike?

According to the claims above, the Stark Varg will be the fastest adult electric dirt bike upon its release in 2023. It’s got the highest powered engine and some of the most state of the art technology to back it up. Until then, the Alta Motors Redshift comes in second at 50 horsepower (if you’re able to track down a used model), and the KTM Freeride E-XC arrives third with 24.5 horsepower.

What is the best electric motocross bike?

As of 2023, the Stark Varg and KTM Freeride E-XC are neck and neck for the title of most accessible and best electric dirt bike for adults.

One positive for the Freeride E-XC is that it’s available now and has already gone through a few iterations and updates for 2023. The Stark Varg’s release is super exciting, but it won’t be ready for another year. The Varg is ideal for updating in the future, but if you want something now, the Freeride is the way to go.

Is an electric dirt bike worth it?

In our opinion, absolutely! Even though motocross started as a gas-powered sport, green energy will most likely overtake combustion engines eventually. While this may not exactly be what some riders want to hear, it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Considering the research and development that’s gone into the electric motocross bikes above, technology is rapidly changing to meet and exceed these previous expectations. It won’t be long before electric dirt bikes are better than the standard gas-powered ones.

Which electric dirt bike has the longest range?

Once again, the Stark Varg wins out when compared for longest range. It’s rumored to run for six straight hours without a recharge, compared to alternatives that only offer 1–2-hours of riding time. Along with coming in second for fastest, the Alta Redshift comes in second for electric enduro motorcycle range as well at around 4 hours riding time.

No matter what electric dirt bike you choose, it will undoubtedly be a new and exciting experience. It might take some extra preparation, but sooner or later you’ll be ripping just like you do on your gas-powered models! We’ll be back with more electrifying advice soon!

Stacyc Long Term Review (Updated 2021)

What we love about Stacyc:

  • Easy to ride: We bought the Stacyc bike for Maddox when he was 4 years old. He was up and riding the bike confidently in about 30 minutes. He had already figured out how to ride a balance bike but wasn’t great at it. He was very excited to get his very own dirt bike and it was light, easy and not scary. It made it so easy for him to jump on and start ripping around the yard in no time. He LOVED it.
  • Light: It is only 17 lbs for the small one and 20 lbs for the bigger one with the battery. That is incredibly light for any type of dirt bike. They have done an amazing job at keeping the weight down. Some of our other electric dirt bikes are just as heavy or heavier than the equivalent gas bikes. This is great for young kids because they are less prone to fall over and if they do fall over, it doesn’t really hurt.
  • All electric: For young kids just learning how to ride electric bikes are the best route to go. This is because there is no heat to accidently get burned, no noise, just flip a switch and you are ready to ride, and multiple power modes for different skill levels. It is also nice for the neighbors if you want to get your kids started ripping around on your back yard.
  • Balance Bike Platform: many kids have figured out how to ride a balance bike at an early age. It was genius to build a electric bike built on this concept. It makes it that much easier for kids to learn how to ride and feel comfortable.

What we dislike about Stacyc:

  • Fuse: I got an older Stacyc bike that has a fuse. It is very annoying; it blows all the time and it is annoying to replace. Luckily all the newer ones have a brushless motor and don’t have a fuse anymore and don’t have this issue. So if you are buying a newer one then this is a non-issue. If you are buying a used one then make sure it does not have a fuse. I would not buy one with a fuse at all.
  • Price: I am mixed on this because if you compare it to a balance bike or pedal bike, they seem very expensive. If you compare it to a 50 cc it is much cheaper. If you compare it to some of the cheaper electric bike options out there it isn’t the cheapest.
  • For Beginners: Some may disagree with me but I feel like these are for beginners. Once you get past the beginner stage then your child will be frustrated with this bike. It doesn’t go very fast, it doesn’t work well in sandy or mountainous/rocky areas.

Overall thoughts:

Overall, I am very happy that I bought a Stacyc bike and would strongly recommend it for a younger kid (3-5 years old) that is just getting into dirt biking. Having some balance bike experience will help them be able to figure out everything a lot faster but it isn’t a big deal to learn balance on the Stacyc bike. Our cousin Will had a 50 cc bike with training wheels for his 4 year old and he didn’t love riding it. After he rode our Stacyc bike he went out and got one for him and he has liked his Stacyc much better than his 50 cc.

Overall, I think Stacyc got it right for the bike they built. It really is the best beginner bike you can get your young kids.

The Best 4 Stroke Dirt Bike For Trail Riding [5 To Avoid]

There’s a lot of bad information on the internet when it comes to choosing which dirt bike to buy. This is especially true about the best 4 stroke dirt bikes for trail riding.

That’s why I put together this simple guide to help you with what I’ve learned over my 20 years of dirt bike riding and owning dozens of motocross and trail motorcycles.

There are different types of trails, so there’s no “perfect bike” for every kind of trail and rider. That’s why we’ll look at what 4-stroke trail bikes are best for each specific type of trail you might ride.

What’s The Difference Between A Dirt Bike And A Trail Bike?

A trail bike is a type of dirt bike that is built specifically for riding on trails. It generally has softer suspension and a smooth engine that’s easy to ride.

A trail bike also can differ in that it has an 18″ rear wheel (allows for bigger knobbies/sidewall), a larger gas tank, armor (hand guards/skid plate/etc.), a wider ratio transmission to make each gear more usable, a different exhaust that’s quieter with a spark arrestor, a kickstand, as well as a head and tail light on some models.

They’re a lot better than a motocross bike for trail riding because they’re more comfortable and easier to ride off-road. The extra accessories are worth the extra weight unless you’re a hardcore racer.

What Kind of Trail Riding Are You Doing?

There’s more than one kind of trail riding. I’ve ridden my dirt bikes on trails that are in the woods, up and down mountains, in desert-like terrain, or just in my backyard and state trails.

Certain models of dirt bikes will work better or worse on different types of trails. If you want to be aggressive and race through the open woods at high speeds, then you’ll want a high-performance enduro bike that is built for racing.

Just want a comfortable trail bike for casually riding up the mountain hills? A simple, low-performance air-cooled 4 stroke will meet your needs at less than half the cost of the race-ready model.

With that said, I still ride a “slow trail bike” aggressively and have more fun than ever! It just needed some suspension tuning to be able to handle the higher speeds and bigger impacts.

What Is Your Skill Level?

Just because you want to ride fast on the trails does not mean you should start out on a 450 race bike. If you’re a beginner, I highly recommend starting out on a dirt bike that is easy to ride with smooth and predictable power.

A slower bike is easier to ride fast than riding a fast bike at slow speeds. Skipping ahead to a bigger 4-stroke and trying to “grow into it” will only slow down your pace of learning.

I learned that the fastest way to become a better rider is to master the basic skills of clutch and throttle control, as well as balance. By learning the proper techniques, you’ll also have more control and be able to ride longer without getting exhausted.

Once you’ve completely outgrown your first dirt bike, then it’s time to look at a more serious enduro trail bike.

What Is Your Size?

Dirt bike size is more important for beginners than it is if you’re an expert level rider. Being able to touch the ground with one foot builds your confidence because it can prevent simple tip-overs.

Confidence is key to growing your riding skill and technique. This is true even if you’re a pro rider.

There are a number of mid-size and smaller full-size dirt bikes if you are shorter than average. Even if you buy a 4 stroke that’s a little too tall, there are several ways to lower the seat height.

Are 4 strokes good for trail riding?

Depending on what type of dirt bike you get and the type of trails you’re doing, 4 strokes can be really good for trail riding. For example, you don’t want to ride a 250F 4 stroke MX bike on tight and technical trails, especially if you’re a beginner.

My video/podcast below shows you what you need to know before buying a 4 stroke dirt bike:

The CRF250F is an all new air-cooled 4 stroke with a dual-camshaft design. It has electric start, but the biggest upgrade is the electronic fuel injection system.

No more pesky carburetor to deal with, as the EFI auto compensates whether you’re starting the bike hot or cold.

The low seat height of 34.8″ helps build confidence, being a few inches shorter than a standard full size 4 stroke.

Other reasons why the Honda CRF250F is a great trail bike:

  • Smooth power-curve with good torque
  • Low seat height; Low center of gravity
  • Very reliable
  • Plenty of mods will be available
  • Shorter wheelbase; makes turning easier

Other 4 stroke beginner bikes that are good for trail riding

Honorable mentions in case you don’t want a Honda include: Kawasaki KLX230R, Yamaha TTR230.

If you’re a new rider, then you’re on the right track to becoming a skilled rider by researching this article for the best dirt bike to start out on!

A 4 stroke trail bike is a great option for learning how to ride, but it’s even more important to learn proper riding technique. To learn the fundamental techniques and build your confidence, tap here to get started for free.

Best cheap used 4 stroke trail bike for beginners

Maybe you’re on a budget and need a cheap dirt bike to get started. If that’s the case, then here are the most affordable trail bikes if you’re looking for your first dirt bike:

Starting out on these older bikes is a great and inexpensive way to get started into riding off-road. If you can find one in good shape, you’ll not only save money when you buy it, but it will also be cheaper to maintain.

What’s The Most Reliable 4 Stroke Trail Bike?

The most reliable dirt bikes for trail riding are going to be the ones that are maintained the best.

All kidding aside, the air cooled 4 strokes are generally the most reliable because they’re the lowest performance engines.

The CRF250F, KLX230R and TTR230 are super durable and among the most reliable dirt bikes if you just keep the oil clean and full, and have a clean air filter.

What’s The Best 250cc 4 Stroke Trail Bike?

There’s many different 250 models that are designed for trail riding.

Honda has the CRF250F for beginner trail riders, the CRF250X for intermediate and experienced trail riders, and the CRF250RX for enduro riders that want a race bike that can still handle technical terrain in the woods.

The best 250 4 stroke dirt bikes for trail riding are:

0 or 450 Dirt Bike For Trails?

A 250 four-stroke is better for riding slower, tighter trails because it’s lighter and easier to handle. A 450 is better for faster, more open trails because it has plenty of power.

While a 450cc dirt bike might only weigh a few pounds more than a 250, the mass of the engine makes it feel a lot heavier. For example, when I went from a 200cc enduro bike to a 450cc, I got exhausted MUCH quicker because I’m not very strong.If you don’t need the extra power, it’s not worth the extra effort, in my opinion.

Best 4 Stroke For Fast Trails/Racing

The CRF250RX, YZ250FX, 250 XC-F, and KX250X are among the best enduro 4 strokes for high-speed and aggressive trail riding. They are lightweight and based on the 250 motocross bikes but are set up for off-road riding.

The motocross bikes listed above in the “worst 4 strokes for trail riding” can be used for riding in the woods, but they do not have the key traits that make it much more enjoyable.

For example, compared to the YZ250F MX bike, the YZ250FX has a wide-ratio 6-speed transmission, a larger gas tank, an 18” rear wheel (better for off-road), a kickstand, suspension that’s tuned for off-road racing, and an engine tuned for broader power.

All of these differences add up to a much better riding 250 4 stroke on the trails.

Can you race 4 stroke dirt bikes?

Absolutely! There are many 4 stroke enduro and motocross bikes for racing, but you can even race a “slower” 4 stroke trail bike.

I’ve raced a CRF230F “girls bike” at some hare scramble and enduro races and was still competitive in my class. As long as the suspension is set up for you, it’s more about YOU the rider, and your riding ability than what bike you’re riding.

Best 4 Stroke For Desert Trail Riding

Desert riding usually requires a bigger and more powerful bike. Sand and high-speed riding need more torque and horsepower or else you’re going to be doing a lot of shifting to keep moving at a fast pace.

Yamaha’s WR450F has always been a solid bike, but it’s improved yet again. The engine has plenty of horsepower, based on the YZ450F engine. You can also tune the ECU from your phone to get the exact feel that you want.

The Honda CRF450X is another great option for high-speed desert or Baja-like riding.

KTM’s 500 XCF-W is another step in the direction of high performance. If you’re looking for more than 450cc of power, the KTM 500 is the ultimate do-all bike.

Tuning the ECU may be required to get the most out of it if you get a “smogged” bike with all the EPA-restrictive parts.

Best 4 Stroke For Tight Single Track

Are you looking to get the ultimate woods weapon? Your best bet is the lightest bike with a shorter wheelbase.

Unfortunately, there’s no high performance option available unless you modify your own bike, such as a modded CRF230F.

The Honda CRF250F and Kawasaki KLX230R are great for tight single track riding, but they fall short in suspension and overall performance in stock form if you want to ride aggressively.

Yamaha’s WR250F has come a long way in the past 10 years, using the YZ250F powerplant but tuned for smoother power.

However, it’s still a tall bike with a full size seat height and wheelbase, so it doesn’t have much of an advantage over another 250 4 stroke trail bike.

Best lightweight street legal trail bike

Maybe you are limited to just one dirt bike due to space or your wife’s rules. Whatever it is, having a street legal dirt bike can be really beneficial so that you can ride to the trails, but there’s just one problem…

Dual sport dirt bikes are heavy, which makes for a poor trail bike, in most cases.

So, that’s why I want to show you the lightest available street legal dirt bikes that are still good for trail riding. With that said, you need to know which motorcycle is good based on your experience level. For example, just picking the lightest bike isn’t necessarily good for a beginner because it’s a high-performance model.

  • KTM 350 EXC-F (experienced riders) – (est.) 243 lbs/229 lbs dry
  • KTM 500 EXC-F (experienced riders) – (est.) 254 lbs/240 lbs dry
  • Suzuki DR200S – 278 lbs
  • Honda CRF450RL (experienced riders) – 291 lbs
  • Kawasaki KLX230 S – 297 lbs
  • Kawasaki KLX300 – 302 lbs
  • Honda CRF300L – 306 lbs

Looking to buy a used 4 stroke dirt bike?

Maybe you’re on a budget and can’t afford to buy a brand-new bike. That’s okay, but buying a secondhand dirt bike can leave you with some major problems if you don’t know what to look for.Check out my video (or podcast episode) below so that you know what to look for when buying a used 4 stroke:

Simple steps to get start dirt biking on a budget

Whether you’re brand new to dirt biking, just getting back into it, or coming from a street or mountain bike, finances are often an issue when getting into this hobby. You can easily spend 10-15k just buying a bike and gear to get started, but I want to show you how to do it for a fraction of that while still having just as much fun while being safe.

Sunday 30th of April 2023

I’m 54 and road 2 strokes back in the day. Powerband city. Hadn’t ridden since my 20’s. Been riding sleds (850cc) alone in winter ever since. Decided to get back into it (trail riding in Maine) and was worried I didn’t still have and bought CRF 250F. In about a week or two I was looking for more power and much better suspension. I’m all set to go KTM XCF-250 but reading they’re race bikes and getting the same feeling I did before the 250F. I know XCF-W is the way to go but they’re ridiculously hard to find. Thoughts on the straight XCF? Will they lug? Am I going to flip on the first whiskey throttle if I tug on the throttle a little to much? Transmission wide ratio enough? Any input would be appreciated.

Sunday 16th of April 2023

where can we paypal you a donation for all of this awesome info? also, why no mention of the KX-250X trail bike?

Monday 17th of April 2023

Hey Bill, I really appreciate your support and encouragement. No need to donate, though. If you wish to further support me, I have online courses that you can get access to so that we can both help each other out 🙂 You’re right, I did forget that model. I’ll have to add it to this list. thanks for letting me know, Bill!

Friday 17th of March 2023

gosh am i glad u came up #1 in google what dirt bike is most comfortable? LOL. i was just about to purchase the 2023 Honda CRF250R (8K) for casual slow trail exploring. i saw a utube saying the CRF250F (5K) was for beginners, the R was better for experienced. the F was lower to the ground. i joined races like Virginia City but only to have fun. our club trail rode and i was always last. at 62 now i just want the most comfort in a trail bike which i only learned is diff from dirt bike from your article! most shops i contact the sales people don’t ride much or at all so it’s like asking Home Depot employees for help!

decades ago i started on Honda XL125, XL250, XL600 on/off then figured out full offroad is better and loved my KTM125 2-stroke but it was loud and don’t want anything like that now! i want a 125 now but the shops tell me moving to 4-stroke i need at least a 250 (which sounds right). i’m only going slow trail ride, looking for less vibrations, more comfort, and need power in rare instances! but in oregon we do have hills and often wet. i will never be going fast which i’d guess on trails that means never over 30mph?

i plan on purchasing the Echo motorcycle trailer EMC-7-12, do u have an opinion on this model? (i have a 1 1/4 hitch and small toyota with 1500lb limit.

thank u (really, for the great information)

here is a pic of my old KTM if u allow images. https://imgur.com/d4KRtlY

Monday 20th of March 2023

I’m glad to hear that too, Ed! Sounds like you got it figured out 🙂 I don’t have personal experience with that Echo trailer, but I’m somewhat familiar with it and it should be a good choice for what you need as long as you can put a 2 ball insert on that hitch. That’s a sweet shot on the old KTM. thanks for sharing, Ed!

Thursday 1st of December 2022

Hello I’m looking to get into Dirtbikes I want to trail ride I don’t really have an interest in riding track. I’m torn between the klx300 or the klx230r or in the Honda side I was wondering about the crf250f. I am 235lbs and 6’5 was wondering what u recommended. Thx for the help!!

Thursday 1st of December 2022

Hey Skylar, thanks for reaching out! Based on your weight, the KLX300R would be a better fit. They’re all going to feel soft and small, so you’ll probably want to make the suspension stiffer on any of them after you build up some confidence. A taller seat will help make it more comfortable. When you’re ready to ride, I highly recommend grabbing my free basic techniques guide. What do you think, Skylar?

Saturday 19th of November 2022

I’ve ridden heavy pigs for 50 years on mountain trails. but recently came back to trials bike. 165 pounds instead of 400 pounds. similar to the 70’s Spanish trials bikes, now mono suspension Montessa 300rr with high seat mod and larger gas tank, 4 stroke Honda engine, mega torque and use any rpm. pleasure to ride, hard to find.

The Best Electric Dirt Bikes of 2023

Remarkably, only one of them went for the Dirt-E joke.

best, electric, dirt, bikes, 2023

The motoring world is going electric. And it’s not just fancy, 1,000-horsepower, six-figure electric trucks. Electric motorcycle options have been increasing over the past few years. And even the relatively humble and underpowered dirt bike segment now offers a proliferation of emissions-free options — and we’re here to help you separate the battery-powered wheat from the chaff.

Why You Should Get an Electric Dirt Bike

Helps Save the Planet: Smaller motorcycles are far from the most fuel-thirsty vehicles. But electric dirt bikes still reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and every little bit helps.

Less Maintenance: Electric motors require far fewer moving parts. That means more time riding and less time (and money) replacing parts. You also don’t need to buy things like oil.

Less Noise: Electric dirt bikes do make some noise, but they make less than internal-combustion dirt bikes — noise that can diminish the enjoyment of being in nature for riders and those nearby.

Accessible to New Riders: Like electric cars, electric dirt bikes do not need a manual transmission. This may disappoint some riders looking for a traditional feel. But it’s also way easier to manage while off-road.

Torque: Electric dirt bikes tend to have a lot of torque, and it comes on instantly. This helps them accelerate rapidly and feel quick in everyday riding.

What to Look For

Street Legality: Like combustion dirt bikes, many of them will not be street-legal. And you may live in a municipality that will confiscate and crush them if you try to use them for that — electric or not. There are dual-sport electric dirt bikes (lighter than adventure motorcycles), which can also be used as commuter bikes. But make sure you clarify that before buying.

Battery Range: Range is a significant drawback to any electric vehicle. You want to ensure you have enough range to do the amount of riding you’re planning. expensive electric dirt bikes will have range that can exceed what most drives can handle physically. But that may be costly.

Battery Charging: A nother important factor beyond range is how long it takes to charge the battery. Shorter is better. Manufacturers may offer accessories that improve charging speed. Some dirt bikes can instantly swap in a newly charged battery and return to the trail.

How We Tested

Gear Patrol writers and editors are continually testing the best electric dirt bikes on a variety of terrains to update this guide looking at features like comfort, ease of use and riding characteristics. Our testers have spent time riding the Zero XF and the Cake Kalk INK so far; however, we’ll be updating this guide as we continue to test more models.

Zero’s FX isn’t a one-trick pony; it’s good at a little bit of everything. It’s fast but torque-heavy up front. For comparison, it’s nimble but still about 50 pounds heavier than KTM’s 350EXC-F. And it’s quiet, which anyone who’s ridden a dual sport before knows has distinct advantages and downsides. (Upsides include not disturbing nature as you ride through and saving your eardrums; cons include being unable to announce yourself to other riders on the trail or cars on the street.)

The FX’s ride is very smooth — from city streets to rutted-out trails and even completely off-road in the ungroomed wild. The tires grip well on city streets, even after a light rain. The FX can reach a top speed of 85, but I rarely found myself pushing it above 65 — this is a great cruising bike built for the trails as much as it is for the road. The acceleration feels torque-y until you get the hang of the feeling; I’d recommend starting in Eco until you get a feel for how the bike handles, experienced rider or not.

The profile is lean and mean, just as advertised. Your tester is 5’4” and weigh 110 pounds, and she could handle and maneuver this bike with relative ease, although she did make sure to get comfortable on the bike on uncrowded trails before taking it to the streets. Zero says the charging time is 1.3 hours, but I found it to be much longer than that. the bike was delivered to me with an 80 percent charge, and it took more than two hours to get it full. The range is 91 miles which is a solid day’s ride, but unless you have the means to give the bike a good overnight charge, you’ll be SOL the next day. And that 91-mile range is in the city — if you’re riding on the highway at 70 mph without starting and stopping, it drops to 39 miles per charge.

We’ve been fans of Swedish manufacturer Cake — and Stefan Ytterborn’s helmet/eyewear/apparel brand, POC — for years. Founded in 2016, Cake has consistently put out smooth, innovative electric bikes that offer both gorgeous looks and purpose-built function.

The Kalk class of offroaders, however, is much more about play than work. The street-legal Kalk INK picks up quick thanks to 252Nm of electric torque, while reliable suspension (200mm of travel) and beefy dual-sport motorcycle tires help you keep the shiny side up from the road to the trails.

  • Removable battery charges from 0 to 80 percent in two hours, 0 to 100 percent in three
  • Three ride modes and three braking modes adapt to your style and environment
  • Not exactly the cushiest seat on the planet (or this page)
  • You must come to a full stop to adjust ride and braking modes

The Top Electric Motocross Bike Brands of 2023

If you’ve been following the motorcycle industry (or reading our blog), you already know that electric motorcycles are booming in popularity. The industry is expected to hit 40 billion by 2026, fueled by the rise of mainstream electric rides from Harley-Davidson, Honda, and seemingly every other major motorcycle manufacturer. But as the electric motorcycle space matures, exciting new niches are emerging. One of our favorites? The electric motocross bike.

What is an electric motocross bike?

Electric Motocross Bike Under the Magnifying Glass

Of all the electric two-wheelers out there, the electric motocross bike is in a league of its own. But before we dive into what it is, let’s clear the air on what it’s not.

An electric motocross bike is not an electric dirt bike, which is heavier, similar to a traditional motorcycle. It’s not an e-bike, which has skinny tires and no suspension, and is designed for riding on paved roads. And it’s not an electric mountain bike, which has pedals and electric motors that assist the rider when going uphill.

What is an electric motocross bike? A lean, light two-wheeler designed for affordable off-road fun. If you’re looking for all the thrills of a traditional motocross bike but with an eco-friendly edge, this emerging class of electric two-wheelers could be the ideal partner for your next rough-terrain ride.

How to find the best electric motocross bike

The electric motocross bike is still new, which means your options will only get better (and more affordable) as the market matures. But if you’re looking to buy one now, there are plenty of high-quality options to make your next off-road ride a whole lot of fun.

We’ve surveyed the landscape to find you the top 5 electric motocross brands of 2023: Kuberg, Bultaco, Cake, Sur-Ron, and Electric Motion. Read on for more on how these innovative brands are delivering the motocross bikes of the future.

KubergThis Czech company is turning heads with its wide range of electric two-wheelers designed to offer the rider an all-out outdoor adventure. Its high-performance electric motocross bikes are clear standouts. For adults, Kuberg’s gem is the Ranger, an electric motocross bike designed for short off-road rides. Mid-power and lightweight, the Ranger offers 60 minutes of adrenaline-pumping ride time powered by a 48V drive hub delivering 8000W of power and a top speed of about 34mph. Its battery has a lifespan of 1000 charges, and its Wi-Fi connectivity makes it a standout. (Explore the Kuberg Volt mobile app for a glimpse into this ride’s slick user experience.)Want your kid to experience the joy of riding? The Kuberg Start is designed for 3-to-5-year-olds just being introduced to the world of two-wheelers. Control your kid’s top speed and torque via a Wi-Fi adapter sold separately, and explore a wide range of seat options to ensure the Kuberg Start grows right along with your young rider. With a one-hour battery range and a 15mph top speed, the Start could be just the electric motocross bike to spark your kid’s love of off-road rides.

Every motocross fan will know the Bultaco Pursang MK6 that Jim Pomeroy rode on his way to win the 1973 Spanish MX Grand Prix. It’s a testament to the times that Bultaco has reinvented itself and come out with a new range of electric motocross bikes. The Bultaco Brinco line offers six models, all of which are sleek powerhouses that offer you absolute control to get your heart pumping as you hit that dirt road. The one notable downside? These electric motocross beauties can be tough to find in the U.S. at the moment. Whether you’re on a dirt road or an urban trail, a Brinco bike can take it all. All models have three riding modes: Sport, for up to 23 miles on a single charge; Tour, for about 46 miles; and Eco, which offers a 62-mile range. The dual adjustable suspension lets you tweak the precharge and shock absorption, helping you achieve the ideal riding experience. The Brinco’s high-quality lithium-ion battery charges up in just three hours, and its companion app offers geolocation and a host of other real-time ride metrics. Want the ultimate Brinco experience? The Brinco RB and the Brinco Discovery, Bultaco’s top-of-the-line models, can clock up to 37mph and come with other next-level features to elevate your adventure.3. CakeThis Swedish company’s mission is to redesign green vehicle technology for the great outdoors. The result? A range of electric motocross bikes that sit at the apex of innovative design and off-road fun. Cake’s Freeride and Race lines offer seven models with a range of off-road exploration capabilities. The Freeride series was designed with backcountry exploring in mind. Described by the brand as “an agile, lightweight, and torquey off-road bike,” the Freeride Kalk OR features a 51.8 volt, 2.6 kWh battery and an 11kW motor capable of delivering 206 nm of torque. Its three ride modes range from top speeds of 28mph with Explore to about 55mph with Excel. The battery can charge from 0 to 100% in three hours, a figure comparable to other leading electric motocross bikes on the market today. What’s not comparable with Cake electric motocross bikes? Their premium, Scandinavian-inspired designs—and premium price tags.4. Sur-Ron

Sur-Ron Electric Motocross Motor

Sur-Ron is gaining major traction in the emerging electric motocross bike market for its surprisingly rugged all-terrain bikes. Case in point? Its Sur-Ron LXB line, which features five well-equipped electric dirt bikes (including one for kids). No roundup of Sur-Ron electric motocross bikes is completed without highlighting the Sur-Ron Light Bee LBX. This lightweight-yet-powerful ride delivers more than 6kW of peak power and weighs just over 100 pounds. It can hit a top speed of 45mph and a range of up to 60 miles per charge depending on its mode, making the Sur-Ron Light Bee LBX ideal for short rough terrain rides. With an acceleration of 0 to 30mph in just under four seconds and an advanced Intersect TR suspension system, there’s a reason why riders around the internet have been raving about the Light Bee’s “fun” factor. Joining the Light Bee LBX in the Sur-Ron LXB line are the L1E LBX, a road-legal electric motorcycle moped; the Storm Electric MX Dirt Bike and the Storm Electric road-legal model, both available for pre-order now; and an electric motocross bike for youth.5. Electric MotionThe aptly titled Electric Motion makes green motocross bikes that are silently brilliant. The all-new Escape R is a rough-terrain delight with a maximum speed of about 47mph, peak power of 11 kW, a blistering 600 nm torque, and a 38-mile range. Add in its signature Hydraulic Diaphragm Clutch, and you’ve got a system for perfectly modulating your ride’s power. The design stays true to motocross bike roots. The result? A two-wheeler that can take you on one wild outdoor adventure. The Epure Race model sits just below the Escape R with a maximum speed of 44mph, a 26-mile range, and 600 nm of torque. The Epure Race weighs in at about 165 pounds, a few lbs shy of the Escape R. Whichever model you choose, you’re getting an electric motocross bike designed for speed, comfort, and off-road agility.
