Honda has entered the e-dirt bike category with the introduction of the CRF-E2, after a succesfull partnership with California-based startup company, Greenger Powersports.
The CRF-E2 is an electric dirt bike equivalent to a 50cc motorcycle that caters to young dirt bike riders.
The CRF-E2 is built based on Greenger Motors G12R and G12S that was previously launched in March 2020.
Powered by a 48V brushless DC motor capable of generating 1.2kW (1.6hp) and 2.5kW (3.4hp) maximum power, the motor also pumps out 24Nm of torque.
Honda claims that the 20 AH/960 Wh swappable battery can last up to two hours in ideal condition with users able to fully recharge the CRF-E2 in just four hours with standard charger (2.5 hours with quick charger).
The battery only weighs at 5.8 kilograms making it easier to be swap out by owners.
The CRF-E2 also features aluminium twin-spar frame, rebound and preload-adjustable rear shock with 3.9″ of travel at the front and 8.3″ of rear travel.
Other specifications include a hydraulic callipers mated to a 190mm petal disc, two 12-inch wire-spoke wheels paired to a Kenda Millvlle K771 knobby tires.
Interestingly, parents can adjust the seat height to 24.8″ or 25.5″ according to their child height.
The Honda CRF-E2 is priced at USD2,950 (RM12.3k).
