Thoughts on a electric dirtbike

I know im on the wrong platform but thought someone could help me with picking the correct moror to be equivilant to a 250cc i was think of something like this. I want it to be liquid cooled so i can push it to its limits😎

KTM has an electric dirtbike called Freeride E-SX/XC (dirt bike and enduro). It has almost as good acceleration as a racing 125cc 2 stroke. A 250cc 4 stroke will be just a bit faster than a 125cc 2 stroke, so if you want to have similar power output as a 250cc 4 stroke, you would want ~20kW peak, and 15kW continuous. If your looking to compete against 250cc 2 stroke, you would want something similar to the Alta dirtbikes, which claims 50hp peak.


Yeah i was hopeing for something like altas 250. A 2504stroke was more of the aera i was aiming for. I read the a crf250r which is the race bike outputs max 40hp so from what u said i think a 15kw motor would be able to support this. Although alta gives all theis specs here. Just no the motor of course😑

As far as I know Alta never sold their motors alone, only premade bikes.

I know of some guys that have used this motor:

It should handle about 20kw continuous, and 45kw peak. Would make for a beast of an electric dirt bike.


Dual motor dirt bike!!

Following this because I want to do a go kart. Going to get a mario outfit and hoon round the streets of the neighbourhood. See if I can get in the local paper. Has to be electric because the one time I rode a 2 stroke skateboard round here they called the police in 2 seconds


You’ve obviously watched this then…

And part 2


Haven’t watched part 2 thankyou!


Just get a Zero

The dude is crazy. +50mph on a set of plastic sleeves, no brakes and no helmet.

Some of the best and more entertaining content on youtube


I love him tbh. Brent hates him. Too close to home I reckon. Seperated at birth


Don’t tease me dude.


But its soooo worth it lol. Fuck the Harley! Get a Zero lol

@dareno @J0ker3366 Zero doesnt have any dirtbike though. The FX model is the closest one, and is more of a motard style bike.
The Altas were great dirtbikes, too bad they’re out of business.

Yes i have seen almost all of his videos😂

When did alta go out of business?

Couple months ago I think

Anyone in San Francisco looking to make an electric bike Can I help?! I want one.

Get a supermotard or dirt frame and weld a mount and then bam

Are we talking about Cuntin Furryz here?

I cannot stand his face, his voice, his Barry Scott enthusiasm, his scripted lack of skill. I hope one of his talented team of engineers who make him look like he’s good at making things realizes what a tosser he is and blows his balls clean off so that he can’t reproduce and make more little shitstain children to ruin the internet for us.


Got any evidence to back this up? I like his videos but it wouldn’t surprise me if he was some kind of Youtube “plant”
