A 5-kW electric motor was fitted to the EE 5 – the same power output as on the 2-stroke version. The electric motor is also air-cooled, water and dust-proof, making it largely maintenance-free. Finally, integrated control units (ECUs) provide an unflinching, direct power delivery under all conditions.

Modern Lithium-Ion Battery
A die-cast aluminium housing houses 84 lithium-ion batteries which power the EE 5 electric motor. In other words, the EE 5 has an energy capacity of 907 Wh/kg, which enables it to race for 25 minutes or ride for two hours at full power. An integrated battery management system (BMS) ensures higher battery safety and long-term durability.
Charger With a Max of 900W
The external charger provides up to 900W and can be plugged directly into the battery pack to charge it. Charge times of 45 minutes (80%) or 70 minutes (100%), respectively, allow riders to spend more time on the bike.
The steering head and seat are connected by a multi-functional instrument and display that provides instant access to detailed information. From beginner levels up to advanced riders, the user can select six different ride modes. Also displayed is the battery charge remaining.
The EE 5 has a roll-over sensor that shuts down power in the event of a fall or tip-over. When an uncontrollable riding scenario occurs, a wrist lanyard key can also serve as a safety net. Using a magnetic key located under the seat, all ride modes can also be saved or locked. A young rider can’t unintentionally activate more powerful ride modes.
Adjustable Seat Height
With a 665 mm adjustable seat height, the EE 5 is ideal for growing bodies and smaller beginners alike. It can be lowered into a 615 mm position in two steps, quickly and easily. In addition, a Suspension Lowering Kit is available from the accessories catalogue, which will lower the seat height to as low as 550 mm for the smallest of riders.
Chromium-Molybdenum Steel Frame
In its frame is a high-strength molybdenum chromium steel system that maintains precisely calculated longitudinal and torsional rigidity parameters. In addition to improving handling characteristics, this also enhances suspension performance, ensuring excellent cornering capabilities and outstanding stability.
Wheels and Brakes
EE 5’s features mirror the full-size motocross range, including a lightweight maxis tire, a hydraulically operated brake calliper, and waved front and rear disc brakes. All conditions are met with progressive grip and advanced braking performance when using this combination.
Standard on the bike is tapered NEKEN handlebars that offer stability and control. A narrower diameter of 18 mm gives younger riders better and less fatigued handling because the bends taper from 28 mm to 22 mm. A vulcanized ODI grip is mounted on the right side of the throttle assembly for the electronic drive, as well as a bar pad on the handlebar brace to protect the rider from rough contact.
Young riders will be able to enjoy the same level of comfort, confidence, and ergonomics as on full-size motocross bikes thanks to the EE5’s bodywork. It is also ergonomically and comfortably designed to allow riders to operate at their best for longer periods without being fatigued.
White, yellow, light blue and neon yellow make up the striking and modern graphics of the EE5. The EE 5 is distinguished from its internal combustion counterparts by its distinctive look. To ensure a premium finish, durability, and quality, the graphics are also applied using an In-Mould Process.
