FULL DETAILS

‘5’ represents the kilowatt output and while CC refers to cubic centimeters on fuel-driven bikes, EE stands for ‘Electric Engine’ on this model.

Drivetrain
The permanent magnet electric motor producing a peak power of 5 kW, the motor is powered by 84 Li-Ion cells, which provide a capacity of 907 Wh in a low 48 V configuration.

Battery
The EE 5 is fitted with 84 modern lithium-ion cells, in a robust die-cast aluminium casing mounted just above the motor. The stored energy is 907 Wh, enough for more than two hours of riding for a beginner and 25 minutes for the fastest riders, depending on the terrain and conditions. The integrated battery management system (BMS) ensures the safety and longevity of the battery pack.

Multifunctional instrument panel

A multi-functional instrument panel located between the steering head and seat allows the user to select six different ride modes, with different power characteristics available to suit pure beginners and experienced racers alike. In addition, the instrument panel displays the remaining charge of the battery.

Charger

The external worldwide charger supplying up to 900 W can be connected to any 110 or 230 Volt socket and plugs directly into the battery pack for easy charging.
Charging time 45 minutes (80%)
Charging time 70 minutes (100%)

Safety

The EE 5 is fitted with a roll-over sensor kill-switch that cuts off the power when needed. A lanyard attached between the rider’s wrist and the kill switch stops the motor when removed. The ride modes can be saved with a dongle located below the seat.

Frame

The high strength chromoly steel frame is slightly adapted to house the electric drivetrain and integrates carefully calculated parameters of longitudinal flex and torsional rigidity.

Front Suspension 

The EE 5 is fitted with the revolutionary WP XACT forks.

Rear Suspension

Linked directly to the swingarm, the WP monoshock is matched to the front forks for the very best balance and damping characteristics. Additionally, the rear shock offers 185 mm of suspension travel, is fully adjustable.

Brakes

Featuring the same level of technology offered on the full-size motocross range, the EE 5 is fitted with hydraulically operated brake callipers and waved front and rear brake discs.

Seat height

The EE 5 allows the seat height to be adjusted at multiple levels. The standard model comes with a seat height of 698 mm, which can be reduced in two steps to 653 mm.

Handlebars

The tapered NEKEN handlebars are made of aluminium alloy. From a central diameter of 28 mm to 18 mm at the ends, the bars are fitted with a lock-on ODI left side grip, while a newly developed throttle assembly for the electronic drive, with a volcanized ODI grip, is mounted on the right side. The thinner diameter of both grips increases control and reduces fatigue for younger riders with smaller hands. A new handlebar pad offers chest protection.
