Husqvarna Motorcycles announced the launch the new EE 5 – an electric Minibike, five-kilowatt machine perfect for pure beginners and experienced riders alike.
The first-ever electric model from Husqvarna Motorcycles, the EE 5 offers youngsters an environmentally friendly way to learn, compete and have fun. Easily adaptable, the ride height can be simply adjusted to keep pace with an improving or growing rider. The quick-charging EE 5 combines the latest high-quality components with bodywork specifically designed to give young riders an ergonomically effortless, all-electric riding experience. Delivering two hours of riding enjoyment for beginners and 25 minutes for faster riders, the supplied charger takes just 70 minutes to fully charge the lithium-ion battery.
Featuring the latest suspension technology, the EE 5 is fitted with 35 mm WP XACT forks that offer 205 mm of travel and combined with a fully-adjustable WP rear shock ensure exceptional damping characteristics. A high-strength chromoly frame, hydraulically operated brakes, lightweight wheels, tapered NEKEN handlebars and striking graphics complete Husqvarna Motorcycles pioneering, all-new EE 5 machine.
We’re interested to see how this bike holds up especially with more experienced riders on obtaining 25 minutes of riding time while waiting 70 minutes to charge. Although many of us aren’t in the market for electric mini-bikes we think it’d be great to see how the Husqvarna EE5 holds up to an OSET mini-bike. Regardless this is a great step in electric mini-bikes and will no-doubt be further built upon in the coming years.
