This electric dirt bike for kids costs Rs. 4 lakh
KTM-owned Husqvarna has unveiled its all-new electric dirt bike, the Husqvarna EE5. Designed especially for novice riders, the electric bike packs a 5kW motor which gets its power from a 907Wh battery. According to the company, it produces enough power to go up against 50cc dirt bikes with combustion engines. Here is our roundup.
On the design front, the Husqvarna EE5 sits on Chromoly steel frame and sports a naked design with narrow seats, spoked wheels, and wide tires. Notably, it has been designed to give a good riding experience to the young riders. Hence, even the seats of the electric bike can be adjusted to match the kid's height.
The Husqvarna EE5 packs a 5kW electric motor which is backed by a 907Wh battery. It also gets a quick charger which takes around 70 minutes to fully charge the battery. However, the bad news is that the battery is not swappable.
The Husqvarna EE5 comes equipped with hydraulic disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. For suspension duties, it houses 35 mm WP XACT upside down forks (USD) on the front and a fully-adjustable WP mono-shock unit on the rear. Further, the bike offers two hours of riding time if driven in easy mode, and almost 25 minutes if ridden in expert mode.
As for the pocket pinch, the Husqvarna EE5 is available at GBP 4,499 (approximately Rs. 4 lakh) in Europe. However, it's still not clear if the bike would hit the Indian roads or not.
