HUSQVARNA MOTORCYCLES LAUNCHES 2023 ELECTRIC MINICYCLE MOTOCROSS RANGE
EE 3 AND EE 5 ELECTRIFY THE JUNIOR OFF-ROAD MARKET
Husqvarna Motorcycles is leading the green off-road charge with its 2023 electric minicycle lineup, offering a choice of two models – the EE 3 and the EE 5. Young riders can step into the exciting world of motocross on the all-new EE 3 to learn off-road skills, while the EE 5 has a distinct competition focus and performance to rival 50 cc gas-powered motorcycles.
The EE 3, the perfect entry-level machine for youngsters, is undeniably a fully-fledged motorcycle, delivering the same high-level of quality for beginners and recreational riders as the competition-focused EE 5 but with reduced power and seat height. With its chromium molybdenum frame, durable WP suspension and advanced lightweight construction, the EE 3 still delivers on performance.
Peak power of 3.8 kW with compliant delivery via an intelligent, state-of-the-art control unit brings the thrills but will not overwhelm younger riders. The electric motor’s permanent drive means there is no clutch or gearbox to master, further simplifying the riding experience. Small diameter 10” wheels add to EE 3’s easy manageability, as do a low, adjustable seat height and hand lever-operated front and rear brakes. A fast-charging Li-Ion battery quickly returns the EE 3 to the action.
Aimed at beginners and experienced racers, the EE 5 is clearly inspired by the TC 50 motocross machine, delivering electric motor performance to rival its combustion engine counterpart. A chromium molybdenum frame, premium adjustable WP suspension, 12” front wheel and advanced lightweight construction make the EE 5 a complete racing machine able to run at the front.
The EE 5’s electric motor ups the performance package with peak power of 5 kW, delivered via an intelligent, state-of-the-art control unit. It eliminates the need for a clutch or gearbox so that new riders can focus on building their off-road riding skills. Run time of the EE 5 is up to two hours of ordinary riding or 25 minutes in flat-out competition conditions, while it takes just 70 minutes to fully recharge the lithium-ion battery. Young riders of every height can hone their skills on the EE 5 thanks to an easily adjustable seat, which can be lowered even further with an optional Suspension Lowering Kit.
