KTM Deploys A Pair Of Electric Factory Race Replica Kid’s Balance Bikes

Feb 11, 2021

Declining ridership has been a major issue for the motorcycle industry over the last decade. Not wanting to sit idly by, several outfits have produced small-scale two-wheelers and mini bikes specifically for kids in order to get them riding from an early age and hopefully instill a lifelong passion for riding. One such company is STACYC, a boutique Riverside-based startup that’s produced fully-electric pint-sized balance bikes for kids and toddlers since 2016.

Shortly after being bought out by Harley-Davidson in 2019, STACYC released a trio of Black and Orange-liveried versions of its existing balance bikes, though two years later, the Southern California company has now announced its next moto manufacturer-branded offerings with two KTM Factory Replica electric balance bikes. The KTM STACYC 12eDRIVE rides on 12” wheels, has three power modes, and is aimed at riders from ages three to five while the KTM STACYC 16eDRIVE gets 16” wheels and is for riders ages four to eight. Both models are constructed around lightweight aluminum frames with BMX-style forks and boast a multi-functional throttle with ride mode and battery level displays. Adorned in a replica livery of the Ready To Race Brand’s factory off-road team, the balance bikes are powered by a thermally protected 20V battery that affords 30-60 minutes of ride time.
