EMX: Electric Motocross Bike

EMX Electric Motocross Bike (5)

EMX Electric Motocross BikeBack in 2010 Johannes Hoier, Andreas Hoier, Karl Maier, Armin Heimburg and Alex Steiner all joined forces in a garage located in Austria to create the EMX (Electric Motocross Bike).

At first glance it may look a lot like some of the bikes we’ve featured in the past, bikes like the Stealth Bomber. There’s a huge difference here though. This thing features no chain, gears or even pedals. Powered by a 1.5-kwh Panasonic lithium ion battery pack, the EMX comes in both a street legal and off road version. Both are essentially the same bike, just tuned for different environments. The Cross will reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour, while the Street reaches a top speed of just under 16 mph. The big advantage is the 81 miles per single charge versus the 50 for the Cross.  You can purchase your own EMX for just over $7,600 USD.
