Better technology, more control and advanced safety features, these are the best electric dirt bikes for kids.
I grew up in rural South East Queensland on a little piece of land called Jimboomba. My whole family were really into dirt bikes at one point, yup even my mother and my sister, which meant family dirt bike adventure holidays – good times.
I got home from school one day and found my parents unloading a second hand CR150, it was perfect for a reckless 13 year old. My father, brother and I spent the afternoon testing it out and tearing up the Logan river bank that backed onto our property.
Now that I’ve been working with the Australian Electric Motor Co. I found myself thinking about this next generation of rural kids discovering the epic fun of a dirt bike riding weekend and the new wave of electric dirt bikes that are available for kids.
Why electric dirt bikes for kids over gas bikes?
Electric dirt bikes for kids make a whole lot more sense if you’re thinking about buying their first bike. I can’t even tell you the amount of time my father and brother spent out in the garage taking apart engines, replacing parts and fixing this or that. They were lucky enough to have a good grounding in small engine mechanics, I couldn’t even imagine the maintenance costs if they weren’t so experienced. And even though kids dirt bikes don’t take much to fuel, petrol is another cost you have to factor in – not to mention the safety factory. It isn’t exactly something you really want groms handling next to hot engines.
One of the best things about kids electric dirt bikes is they are ‘set it and forget it’ type of bikes. They take no more maintenance than a bicycle because there is so much less that can go wrong in an electric drive train vs an internal combustion engine.
Oh and the real bonus electric dirt bikes have over gas bikes… noise. Electric dirt bike engines make a much quieter winding sound which is generated from the motor, the belt/chain and the tyre hitting the dirt. Think of a louder remote control car. No pissing the neighbours off at indecent hours because there’s a two or four stroke engine revving. It was one of the biggest complaints we got from our neighbours as kids.
As any parent should know, dirt bikes aren’t the safest toy in the world. Dangerous riding and reckless behaviour leads to crashes and serious injuries, I’ve witnessed this first hand. As funny as it was watching my brother lose his mind talking gibberish with a green morphine whistle in his mouth – the bone sticking out of his ankle wasn’t. Take the time to either teach your kids safe riding practices or get them involved in a social group with mentors who can teach this sort of stuff.
Australia is lucky enough to have a pretty good extreme sports culture, so if you look around on Google, or event meet up sites, you should be able to find a local MotoX group that will be able to give your kid some pointers. And this should go without saying but, safety equipment – helmet, chest plates, boots, the works. Don’t skimp when it comes to protective gear.
One more thing to keep in mind is that the nature of electric motorcycle technology means the motorbikes can be a lot more powerful. The speed and torque on these things have been turned up high which can be very dangerous off road. Again this is an opportunity to teach your kids about safe riding, how to find their limits and getting some mentoring in a social setting.
Now we got that out of the way. Here is our list of electric dirt bikes for kids that are currently available in Australia. This list contains a mix of mini bikes for younger kids, and bigger bikes for teens.
OSET comes first on our list because of their proven track record in competition. Their multiple youth championship wins all over the world would make them a great choice for any kid interested in trials and competitive riding. The OSET electric bikes are a great introduction motorcycle from 2 years up to 16 and as a company their FOCUS is on discipline, balance, brake and throttle control instead of pure speed and power.
There are five models on offer from OSET that range from mini bikes suitable for the smallest riders, to the biggest kids. These bikes are designed from the ground up for technical ability and safety. One of the best safety features available with electric motorbikes, specifically the OSETs, is that the power, throttle response and top speed can all be controlled to suit the rider. This makes it easy for new riders to master the controls in stages, and it also allows for parental control. Like most electric dirt bikes the OSETS also offer adjustable seat heights, which means your bike can grow as your child does.
OSET Australia are currently taking pre-orders for 2023 so if you’re thinking ahead to your child’s next birthday, Christmas or starting them in trial riding, it would be well worth looking into.
The adult electric motorcycles by KTM had a limited run in Australia, we’re hoping they will be back soon, but there is still plenty on offer for young riders. These are probably the most accessible electric dirt bikes for kids because of the amount of dealerships KTM has around the country.
KTM has two electric dirt bikes on offer in a mini-cross style, the SX-E 3 and the slightly more powerful SX-E 5. There are also two balance bikes available through KTM if trials is the way you want to go.
The SX-E 3 is perfect for those grass roots level riders just getting started in their mini-cross obsession. It is the lower end of the mini-cross dirt bike KTM offers, the SX-E 5 being the more advanced in power and capacity. Like the OSET’s the KTM’s come built in with a number of safety features and ride modes that make them a great offering for young and inexperienced riders.
Even though we mentioned that electric motorcycles don’t need much maintenance or repairs, one of the benefits of having a KTM bike is that because the brand is so established in Australia with a number of dealerships and repair centers, if something does go wrong it’s much easier to access the right mechanics.
The home grown heroes on this list. Takani are a family owned Australian brand that were developed in the Samford Valley, not too far out of Brisbane. What we like about these bikes is that they are built for the kids who love to get out and have fun on weekends. A lot of the electric dirt bikes for kids can either look like big glorified toys or are geared toward the racing market – meaning power and speed are the FOCUS. Over 30 years Takani developed their bikes for Australian kids and their two dirt bike options are pretty awesome.
Their two electric bikes, the TK1412-15 and the TK1210-13 are a great option for your teenage riders, 13-16 minimum. The top speed on these bikes reach between 30-40km/h, with no noise, no pollution and no home mechanic skills required. These electric dirt bikes also come in at the lower end of the price tag, the higher range TK1413-15 sells for 1,999. Not too bad for a modern electric dirt bike.
My heart goes out to Takani because they’re local manufacturers who are building bikes for the kids in areas I grew up in. Tried and tested on rural Queensland properties without pissing off the neighbours due to noise.
Segway have produced two electric dirt bikes, the X160 and X260 that would be more suited to experienced teenage riders. Their impressive compact and lightweight dirt bikes look like they would be a whole lot of fun winding down narrow trails and mountain treks. Segway has officially said that these bikes are for adults, but we had bikes that definitely weren’t for teens once we got our experience up. We think these would be great for riders in their late teens/young adults who like to really open up on dirt bike trails.
The Segway’s have the technology to support it too. The premium X260 model has a top speed of around 75 km/h, 120km range, 250 Nm of torque, advanced suspension and handling, and swappable battery technology. Get these bad boys out for a weekend trail ride and you’re in for a good time. The price on these bikes is getting up to around the 7,000 mark, which is why you need to be serious about your riding if you’re thinking of getting a Segway electric dirt bike.
Which of these electric dirt bikes do you think your kids would like? Or which bike do you think would have liked a go at? There’s a part of me that’s a little jealous of all the options available for young riders today, zero pollution, no noise and advanced riding features, it’s a brave new world and we’re excited to see what comes next for electric dirt bikes for kids.

The 10 Best Electric Dirt Bikes to Ride in 2023
Over the last decade, the electric vehicle segment has experienced enormous technological leaps and bounds, giving way to increasingly powerful and compact motors and battery packs. It’s only been within the last year or two, however, that this technology has finally become potent and advanced enough to genuinely lend itself to use in off-road motorcycles. So, while this segment may not have even really existed half a decade ago, there’s recently been a major influx of new, ever-more-capable models hitting the market on a regular basis — the latest and greatest of which we’ll be counting down in this curated guide to the best electric dirt bikes.
While the sheer number of available options on the market currently gives riders a diverse selection of proton-powered machines from which to choose, it’s also made it increasingly difficult to hone in on the bike that best suits you and your intended riding use — especially to the uninitiated. In an effort to streamline the experience of shopping in this emerging segment, we’ve broken it down, delving into the benefits of electric dirt bikes and what to consider when shopping, before diving into our picks for the best battery-powered dirt bikes currently on the market.
The Upsides Advantages Of Electric Dirt Bikes
There are numerous areas in which modern electric dirt bikes are objectively superior to their gas-powered counterparts — seven of the most crucial of which we’ll be unpacking below.
Unparalleled Power: At times boasting more than ten times as much torque as standard 450cc dirt bikes, electric models offer what are truly remarkable, otherwordly amounts of torque. And, as an electric motor without a powerband, the gobs of stump-pulling torque produced by EV dirt bikes are unleashed instantaneously — rather than over a gas-fed engine’s rev range.
Minimal Noise: And, as much as we enjoy the roaring four-stroke or the ringing of a two-stroke engine, the lack of an internal combustion engine does admittedly allow the rider to better appreciate their surroundings when riding out in nature — not to mention the fact electric dirtbikes don’t annoy neighbors or attract unwanted attention from park rangers and/or law enforcement. With that said, electric dirtbike motors are far from silent, producing a whirling sound that increases in pitch as RPMs go up — not unlike a gas engine, albeit markedly quieter.
Reduced Maintenance: With far fewer moving parts, no need to change out fluids, spark plugs, or filters, and no cams or timing chains to adjust, motorcycles that are kicked along by EV powertrains require far less maintenance than regular gas-fed dirt bikes. This makes ownership a much more convenient experience, especially compared to two-stroke models that need top-end rebuilds after every couple dozen hours of riding.
TwistGo Throttle: Without the need for a clutch and gearbox, electric powertrains are markedly more approachable than their manually-shifted counterparts, lowering the intimidation factor and making riding more accessible to novices. Rather than having to work a clutch and shift lever, electric dirt bikes boast an automatic, “twist-and-go” style throttle — which can often have its sensitivity adjusted.
Smart Tech Future-Proofing: Because electric powertrains are regulated by modern, computerized controllers, the motor’s performance characteristics can be adjusted, with elements such as throttle response, traction control, and “engine braking” able to be dialed in on the fly. As rolling Smart devices, electric dirt bikes also often come with capabilities such as geofencing and tracking, remote locking and unlocking, and firmware updates that can be received over the air, largely future-proofing any one particular model.
Environmentally Friendly: While it probably goes without saying, since zero-emission vehicles don’t produce any combustion, electric dirt bikes are almost always tremendously more environmentally friendly and sustainable compared to gas bikes. With the right equipment on hand, some of these bikes can also be solar-charged.
Freedom Of Design: Traditionally, the layout of dirt bikes has been dictated by the positioning of vital components such as the engine and gas tank. Electric dirt bikes, on the other hand, aren’t limited by this layout and can have their motor and battery pack(s) strategically located in a myriad of different places, giving designers and engineers markedly more freedom, along with the ability to experiment with outside-the-box ideas and setups.
Factors To Consider When Buying An Electric Dirtbike
Whether it’s an enduro, supersport, or an electric dirt bike, purchasing your first motorcycle can be a daunting task, especially if you didn’t grow up riding. Knowing this firsthand, we’ve generated this handy primer on the eight most important areas to review before buying your first — or next — electric dirt bike.
Battery: Batteries obviously play a crucial role in the overall quality and performance of an electric dirt bike. Areas such as capacity, voltage, and the number of cells will collectively determine specs such as range, recharge times, and the number of lifecycles. It’s also worth exploring if a battery is swappable, as well as what types of outlets or chargers it’s compatible with.
Motor: As the heart of any electric dirt bike, its motor is extremely important. When shopping for a battery-powered motocross machine, you’ll want to explore factors such as the type of motor, how much it weighs, how it’s cooled, and where it’s mounted on the bike (typically the swing-arm or frame).
Power: The immense power produced by electric dirt bikes is undoubtedly one of the segment’s biggest benefits over traditional petrol-powered models. As such, it’s well worth exploring an e-MXers horsepower and torque figures — the former of which is often measured in kilowatts.
Running Gear: While a dirt bike’s power and acceleration are primarily owed to its powertrain (and gearing, to some extent), its other riding characteristics mainly boil down to the running gear — or components — with which they’re equipped. This includes elements such as an e-dirt bike’s suspension setup, chassis, swing-arm, and braking hardware — all of which play a pivotal role in a bike’s handling and stopping power.
Size Weight: Just like with traditional dirt bikes — that are typically offered in everything from 49cc up through 450cc sizes — electric models come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, with a slew of different seat heights and riding positions. These battery-powered bikes can also weigh in at anywhere between around 100lbs all the way up to two-wheelers pushing 400lbs. When reviewing this particular area, you’ll want to consider your height, skill level, intended riding applications, and whether or not the bike’s ergonomics (and/or seat height) can be adjusted.
Smart Tech: GPS tracking, remote unlocking, and on-the-fly parameter adjustments are all frequently featured on late model electric dirt bikes, allowing for more personalization. What’s more, similar to smartphones, today’s electric dirt bikes also often come loaded with sensors such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, wheel speed monitors, and GPS sensors — all of which feed data several hundred times every second into an advanced processor.
App Connectivity: A growing number of dirt bikes are now being offered with connectivity to dedicated smartphone apps that allow users to adjust settings and parameters of the bike, such as power output, throttle response, traction control, or ABS levels. Many of these apps can also be used to download over-the-air updates.
Experience Level: No matter what type of motorcycle you’re purchasing, your search should always be limited by your level of skill and riding experience. Starting on a machine that’s too large and too powerful isn’t just inconducive to learning, it’s downright dangerous — plus it limits the amount of fun the rider has, as they’re forced to FOCUS on keeping the bike in check rather than perfecting their technique and advancing as a rider. The good news, however, is that quite a few of today’s electric dirt bikes can have their power level and throttle response adjusted (i.e. lowered) in order to be compatible with novice pilots.
SUR-RON Light Bee X
Tipping the scales at just a tad over 100lbs (plus the weight of its 60V, 176-cell Lithium-ion battery), SUR-RON’s Light Bee X is a lightweight, entry-level electric dirtbike that boasts a 47mph top speed and a range of up to 60 miles on a single charge — depending on what riding mode is being used.

Also produced in street-legal dual-sport and supermoto variants, the Primo’s perimeter-style aluminum cradle frame has been paired with a custom-designed cast swing-arm, an Öhlins’ twin-tube-tech-equipped TTX mono-shock, and a top-shelf 48mm inverted KYB fork.
Alta Redshift MXR
Despite producing what at the time was unquestionably the most advanced, cutting-edge, and capable electric dirt bike in existence, Alta Motors sadly shuttered its doors in late 2018, putting an immediate end to all operations, including production. With that said, if you’re shopping for an electric dirtbike, Alta’s Redshift models — including the MXR — are still well worth considering. And, while it may require some legwork and patience, Alta’s dirt bikes can still occasionally be found at select dealerships, as well as on eBay, Craigslist, and auction sites like Bring a Trailer.
GRID Cycles E-Scrambler
Created by Purpose Built Moto’s new EV division GRID Cycles, this honorable mention offers the performance of a modern electric dirt bike along with the appearance of a retro-inspired scrambler motorcycle with a replica Yamaha XT500 tank, a scrambler-style seat, and a classically-styled circular headlight shell housing a 5.75” Flashpoint LED beam. The E-Scrambler is based on KTM’s FREERIDE E-XC, and as such its power and range figures go almost entirely unchanged. The E-Scrambler also sports a black livery contrasted via an orange frame and red and orange accents — a nod to 1970s race liveries.

This criteria covers each bike’s throttle and brake response, as well as handling. We also add points for bikes with single-gear transmissions and instant acceleration.
This factor consists of the bikes’ design and originality. We also take note of unique details and add extra points for bikes with great details.
Like with aesthetics, we also lay out points based on how visually appealing the bike looks or if it has references to pop culture (such as an electric dirt bike that looks like something out of Mad Max).
We provide points based on standing torque and top speed, and also the duration in which the bike reaches peak speed.
We take note of the bike’s battery level or operation time as well as range distance. We score bikes higher for having special features such as brake regen and extra reserve power packs.
Lighter bikes get more points, and vice-versa. The last thing we want is a 900lbs off-roader.
We take into account the range of services a dealer or manufacturer provides and the responsiveness they can offer a customer after purchase. Additional points for reliable services, warranty support, quick-replies to inquiries, and visitable locations.

Runner-up — Segway X260: A Stark Contrast to the Sur Ron X?
The Segway X260 is a medium electric dirt bike meant for narrow off road trails and tracks. The bike’s 31.1-inch adjustable seat height allows both teens and adults to safely operate the bike.
The Segway X260 light electric dirt bike features a dual drive system which uses both a belt and a chain to propel the bike. This increases the torque at the wheels to provide stronger acceleration.
The Sur Ron Storm Bee is a full size electric motocross dirt bike built for adult professionals and beginner riders. The Sur Ron Storm Bee is also Sur Ron’s second production dirt bike — right after the Sur Ron X. The Sur Ron Storm Bee sports an authentic dirt bike look (or close enough).
Judging from the details on the table, the Luna Cycle Sur Ron Storm Bee performs pretty well when it comes to power and range. It’s 260-lb weight isn’t bad for a pedalled bike. I guess all you gotta watch out for is the price tag.
The Enduro eBikes 12000W electric dirt bike is a medium size trail/enduro ebike for both adults and teens. Its rugged design and tough build makes the 12000W a great option for aggressive off road riding.
The Enduro E Bikes 12000W features a Sine Wave controller which provides smooth power delivery depending on throttle input. This is the same controller used by the Stealth B-52 “Bomber” and other Stealth electric dirt bikes as well.
The Segway X160 is a medium light electric dirt bike intended for shallow dirt tracks or the local trails. The bike’s size and seat height suggests both teens and adults can operate it, despite Segway’s recommendation for adults. The bike’s features include: smartphone connectivity and configurability, built-in headlights, adjustable and flexible frame length seat height, and a modular frame.
The HPC Typhoon Pro is a large hybrid e dirt bike built for the trails and dirt tracks. Featuring an aggressive black gold steampunk look, and scrambleresque styling, the HPC Typhoon Pro is a great option for stylish riders.
The Zero DSR is a large electric adventure dirt bike known for its sleek and aggressive design, as well as convenient features. It is Zero’s base bike in their adventure lineup preceding the Zero DSR/BF which is a beefed up version of the DSR with built-in utility boxes.
Like all of Zero’s bikes, the DSR boasts a high tech arsenal of convenient features. One of these features is performance configurability with Zero’s mobile app using a connected mobile phone. Another is the ability to switch batteries on the fly (provided you bought the power tank accessory provided by Zero).
The KTM Freeride E-XC is a full-sized electric dirt bike in KTM’s off-roader lineup. The KTM Freeride electric dirt bike shares the same aggressive profile with its petrol-powered counterpart, the KTM EXC.
It also features a 5/8 x 1/4″ drive chain for stable off-road riding, a liquid-cooling system, and a regenerative braking system for additional range.
The Delfast Prime 2.0 is a hybrid electric dirt bike made for traversing all terrain. It’s got an adjustable seat height that varies between 29 and 36 inches so riders of all sizes should be able to set the bike’s seat height up based on their preference.
The Delfast Prime 2.0’s best feature is its 236-mile range on Eco mode. The Prime 2.0 holds the record for an electric dirt bike with the longest range.
The bike also features street legal accessories. So you can ride to your favorite track or trail using main city roads. Just don’t forget to gear up.
If you want a lightweight adult electric dirt bike that can keep up with the big boys, then it’s time to meet the Zero FXS. With a curb weight of just 250 pounds and a powerful motor capable of reaching 70 mph in seconds, this electric motocross bike will get you where you need to go—fast.
In terms of power, the Zero FXS delivers. Its high-torque Z-Force motor is driven by lithium ion batteries that are almost twice as powerful as standard batteries found on other electric bikes. What’s more, the battery charge lasts for longer than most competitors’ offerings so you can ride for longer without needing to recharge.
On the down side, however, the Zero FXS is also one of the most expensive electric dirt bikes on the market. Its steep price tag means it might be out of reach for some riders, and its lack of traditional features like a throttle or clutch mean you won’t get an authentic motocross experience when riding it.
Overall, though, the Zero FXS is an impressive electric dirt bike that should have no problem keeping up with more traditional models. If you can afford its hefty price tag, then this could be the ideal option for you.
The Zero FX motorcycle is another large-size electric dirt bike by Zero Motorcycles with several top of the line features.
These features include an onboard charger, which simplifies recharging by allowing riders to park right next to a power outlet and start charging. There’s also an option to add a second battery which can then switched to on the fly without taking out the power pack.
The Zero FX motorcycle also features connectivity and configurability with mobile phones through the use of Zero Motorcycles’ mobile app which is a perfect feature given that the FX is a dual-sport bike and performance flexibility is a must.
If you’re in the market for an electric dirt bike, the Stealth H-52 is a great choice. It’s powerful and lightweight – weighing just around 70 lbs – making it easy to maneuver on any terrain. Plus, its price tag won’t break the bank; you can buy one for under 2,000.
The Stealth H-52 has plenty of features that make it stand out from other electric dirt bikes on the market. Its advanced lithium battery technology provides a longer riding time and faster charging speed than most others available.

When it comes to buying an electric dirt bike, the Cake Kalk OR is a style-conscious rider’s dream come true.
With its clean lines and sleek design, this eco-friendly model stands out from the crowd and will turn heads when you hit the trails.
But that’s not all – the Kalk OR offers plenty of features to get excited about, too! It has a long range battery life, adjustable suspension settings for improved agility on challenging terrain, and fast shipping times if you need your ride in a hurry.
However, one thing to consider before taking the plunge is that this bike isn’t suitable for riders under 16 years old.
This electric bike also features an onboard charger. This is a fairly uncommon characteristic among electric bikes in the market. It simplifies the charging process and allows you to park charge at any outlet without having to pull out your battery or carry an external charger.
The Kalk is Cake’s second dirt bike in the Kalk series, right after the Kalk OR. The Cake Kalk is street legal, meaning you can use it on the main road without getting fined.
As a street legal bike, the Kalk comes with accessories required by city laws when driving on city streets. These include side mirrors, headlight, tail-light, light reflectors, and a plate holder. The Kalk’s performance matches the Kalk OR.

The Stealth B-52, with its sleek design, state of the art electronic and mechanical parts, and peak performance is a technological marvel.
The Stealth B-52 looks different from its peers due to its elongated swing arm and rear hub mounted motor. The ebike’s frame lives up to the name, comprised of aircraft alloy.
The Yamaha TY-E Electric Trials Dirt Bike is a dirt rocket with some noteworthy features.
It has an electric motor for propulsion, paired with a manual gearbox so you can go full throttle on your ride. With the help of its adjustable suspension, the bike’s handling is said to be great and it is lightweight enough for easy maneuverability.
Additionally, this Yamaha model comes with a guide that will provide helpful instruction about getting started on electric dirt bikes, and electric scooters and riding safely.
On the other hand, some users have reported that the battery range proves to be short when using all available power – making it less than ideal for long-distance trips or extended rides.
Nonetheless, if you’re looking for something small and nimble that can take on a variety of terrain, the Yamaha TY-E might be for you.
With its adjustable suspension and powerful motor, this dirt rocket is sure to thrill.
Kalashnikov UM-1 Electric Adventure Bike
Whenever you hear the word “Kalashnikov”, the first thing on your mind would probably be guns. That’s not the only thing they make apparently. Kalashnikov also makes electric off road motorcycles and this big beauty is one example.
The Kalashnikov UM-1 is going to be an electric adventure bike capable of long range travel (longer than those of Zero Motorcycles’ adventure bikes according to how Kalashnikov promotes it). The gun manufacturer originally planned the UM-1 for military use, but it stole so many biker’s hearts that they simply had to develop a civilian version.
Though the lack of development updates from Kalashnikov on the UM-1 is pretty disheartening, we can only hope that this badass beauty gets released before this year ends. Besides, the bike has been in the development phase for over 2 years now. It won’t be long before we can finally see it in person.
Honda Mugen E-Rex
The collaboration of motorsport giant Honda and world class custom ride specialist Mugen brought us this little badass. The Honda Mugen E-Rex sports the ultimate in off road motorcycle styling — the prehistoric concept.
The Honda Mugen E-Rex features a rugged, but unique design that will probably net a lot of biker hearts when it gets released. No updates yet from Honda, but we’re pretty sure it’ll come out soon enough. Big disappointment for Honda if it doesn’t.
We hope you enjoyed reading our nifty list of the best electric dirt bikes for adults and that you are much closer to making a choice. Have fun bombing trails over the weekend or sliding through traffic on your way to work with one of these awesome electric dirt bikes for adults.

Yamaha XE4 Electric Dirt Bike First Ride Review
Electric dirt bikes have been making waves in the motocross industry in recent years. While new bikes like the Stark VARG and Flux Primo have garnered a lot of attention, the loss of Alta has left many wondering when Honda, Yamaha, and KTM will enter the full-size electric dirt bike market.
Amidst this yearning for new technology, it’s easy to overlook the decades of perfectly tuned chassis that have been developed by the best engineers, test riders, and racers in the industry, and they are ripe for electric conversion. Luckily, we’ve got some companies trickling into this space to make electric conversions that bolt on to some of the most proven motocross bikes that our industry has created.
Enter the Yamaha XE4 Electric Dirt Bike, built by Xtreme Electric MX (XEMX).
After experiencing a few successful electric conversions (and with other future ones in the works, wink wink), our attention has been captivated by the XE4 Yamaha, expertly crafted by XEMX. Our intrigue was piqued after witnessing JoJo Toole’s remarkable performance on the bike during the ECR eMoto Race at the 2022 Red Bull TKO.
XEMX Yamaha Electric Dirt Bike Specifications and Details
XEMX makes 2 different kits, the XE2 (air cooled) and the XE4 (liquid cooled).
The XE4 is a bolt-on conversion kit that is compatible with the Yamaha 250 and 450 YZF and YZFX bikes from 2014-2019 for the 250 chassis and 2014-2018 for the 450 chassis.
The liquid-cooled version utilizes the stock YZF radiators with a small 12v pump to circulate Engine Ice. Liquid cooling is the best way to keep the motor cool, making the XE4 more efficient the cooler it runs. The XE4 also features a proprietary fast-change battery swap technology, which is the fastest battery change on the market, taking less than 10 seconds to swap fresh batteries.
The XE4 bike that underwent our testing process is built upon a 2016 Yamaha YZ250F Chassis. XEMX currently utilizes a 12T front and 52T rear Sprocket, sometimes replaced by a 12T-54T combination. The bike’s components, such as sprockets, plastic, suspension, and grips, are all stock Yamaha parts. Front sprockets are sourced from a stock YZF450.
XEMX is currently experimenting with several different controllers to determine which one provides the best overall performance. The controllers under consideration include the Curtis 1236SE, Votol EM-260S, EBMX X-9000, Fardriver, Kelly, and the A5, which is a Curtis clone. All of the controllers will undergo racing tests to verify which one works best for the bike.
The Curtis 1236SE controller, rated at 450 amps at 72 volts, was the controller we tested on our bike.
XEMX’s batteries are rated at 72V nominal and 600 Amp max output, with a total capacity of 4.3kWh. Since the batteries are custom-made, XEMX can modify the type and amount of cells to meet the customer’s needs.
XEMX has developed proprietary fast-change battery swap technology that utilizes a modified aerospace connector, delivering 600 amps per terminal. The battery compartment features the lid formerly used for the Yamaha YZF gas cap. It’s a clean, straightforward design that takes less than 10 seconds to swap fresh batteries.
The bike has three ride modes that are fully programmable, as well as a reverse, auto regen braking, and options for lever regen braking. Additionally, the bike offers optional motor sounds with a speaker, a feature we’ve never encountered before.
The XEMX Yamaha XE4 is a custom order bike, but kits will be for sale once beta testing is complete. You can see below for a breakdown of cost options for the kits.
Riding the Yamaha XE4 Electric Dirt Bike
While we’ve had the opportunity to ride the Stark VARG and Alta Redshift, it’s more common to see the ECR crew on the KTM Freeride EXC and smaller, modified electric dirt bikes like the SurRon Lightbee X.
The XEMX Yamaha XE4 provides an incredible experience. The Yamaha YZF Chassis has become a reliable platform over the years, largely due to its unique reverse motor design that creates horsepower unmatched by the other manufacturers in the pro MX scene.
Since the motor is replaced by the electric powertrain in this bike, the gas power plant is no longer a talking point. However, the design allows XEMX to adapt the space for their motor and battery.
The Yamaha chassis is renowned for its stability and surefootedness in rough terrain. The proven KYB SSS suspension is sought after by many riders and comes stock on Yamaha YZF bikes.
Riding the XEMX Yamaha XE4 is an experience that lives up to all the hype that the Yamaha YZF chassis has received in the stability and suspension department. The bike feels incredible, especially after riding sub-150-pound electric dirt bikes that struggle in rough sand whoop terrain in Florida. It’s like you’re riding a Yamaha YZF250F, albeit with an electric powertrain, which is a great thing.
If there’s any complaint about the YZF chassis, it’s that the bike sacrifices some front-end steering for stability. It’s a bike that is notoriously known for benefitting from riders that “steer with the rear”, or those who prefer stability over a sharp turning bike like KTM, Suzuki, or Honda. Needless to say, we are simply splitting hairs here, and adjustments can be made to improve the turning characteristics and front-end feel of the YZF chassis.
In our video about the Yamaha XE4 electric dirt bike, we did encounter some issues. The bike would fault if we hit a sand whoop too hard when we were hard on the throttle. Mark from XEMX explained that the sensor and magnet in the motor were slightly misaligned from each other, causing the bike to shut off intermittently. This can be a common issue in new motors, and XEMX has resolved 99% of the issue since filming, claiming it is just an issue with the older style connectors. Regardless, it’s is an issue that will be resolved before kits will be sold.
In the field, Mark from XEMX made some changes by dialing the power back as much as 20%. In other words, only 80% power was being used when we tested the bike. This particular controller we were testing was only rated for 450 Amps, and the batteries have the capacity to put out 600 Amps. Needless to say, there is a lot more power that can be created on this platform.
XEMX Yamaha XE4 Electric Dirt Bike Pricing
