Electric dirt bikes are a fantastic idea – machines like the Zero FX, Alta Motors Redshift and even the Stealth H-52 can give you serious off-road giggles without pissing off neighbors and locals. Plus, while range concerns still make electric roadbikes a tough sell outside the commuting arena, batteries are good enough for an hour and a bit of off-road use, which’ll give you some good laughs and a decent bit of a workout.
Italy’s Armotia is getting set to throw its hat into the ring with a pair of e-bikes that bring some special abilities to the table.
The Due X weighs in at 125 kg (275 lbs), about 8 kg more than a fully fueled KTM EXC-F 250 enduro bike. Continuing that comparison, the Due makes just 15 horsepower while the KTM makes 37 – but where the Kato makes about 23 Nm of torque, the Due can put out as much as 200(!). Tight trails will be less work, with no clutch or gearbox to fiddle with, and the Due can put its power down through both wheels.
