husqvarna 2021 EE 5

Redefining Motocross

The EE 5 is Husqvarna Motorcycles' first step into electric mobility, drawing on the brand's rich motocross history combined with modern, pioneering technology. Powered by an adjustable electric motor capable of rivalling its 50cc fuel-powered counterparts, it is perfect for young racers and grassroots beginners. The EE 5 is also fully adaptable and adjustable for height, making it accessible to younger riders. Additionally, low noise and zero carbon emissions make the EE 5 more accessible to younger riders and more accepted in areas where noise emissions are restricted.

The electric motor fitted to the EE 5 produces a peak power output of 5 kW - much the same as its 2-stroke counterpart. The permanent magnet, air-cooled motor features an extremely compact and slim design, which is well suited to the smaller chassis. The electric motor is also air-cooled, water and dust-proof, making it largely maintenance free. Lastly, an integrated control unit (ECU) guarantees a direct, but very controllable and unintimidating power delivery in all conditions.

Ensuring users have all relevant information at a glance, a multi-functional instrument and display is located between the steering head and seat. The user can select 6 different ride modes with different power characteristics suited from beginners, up to experienced racers. In addition, the remaining battery charge is also displayed.

A high-strength chromium molybdenum steel frame houses the electric drivetrain and maintains carefully calculated parameters of longitudinal flex and torsional rigidity. This benefits handling characteristics and enhances the suspension functionality, guaranteeing precise cornering and outstanding stability.

Ensuring stability and safety at the helm, tapered NEKEN handlebars are mounted as standard. With a tapered diameter of 28 mm to 22 mm in the bends to cylindrical ends of 18 mm in the grip area, the narrower diameter benefits younger riders with better grip and less fatigue. The throttle assembly for the electronic drive features a vulcanised ODI grip mounted on the right-hand side, along with a new crash pad on the handlebar brace to protect the rider from any rough contact.
