Dohms Projecten B.V. has been working for some time now on the development of a competitive high-performance electric powertrain for motocross, the most practiced branch of motor sport that takes place off road. An innovation that contributes to noise and CO2 reduction because future mobility must become more sustainable.
The idea for a competitive electric motocross bike came about beginning 2019 at Dohms because there are changes in the field of noise and environment that are at the disadvantage of dirt bikes with a combustion engine.To secure the future of motocross, Dohms Projecten B.V. researched alternatives. This showed that there are possibilities in the electrical field. At the basis of this development are specific requirements such as high performance, zero-emission, driving experience and reliability. Dohms Projecten B.V. and Spike Technologies B.V. join forces and with their technological and innovative ingenuity have already made great strides in the development of the drivetrain and the weight distribution of the EMX dirt bike.
The new electric MX machine has enough battery capacity to perform well. The big advantage of an electric motor is that the torque is much higher. This gives it more pulling power. In addition the battery is easy to replace so that a second moto session can be driven immediately. The battery that will power the EMX dirt bike is being developed by Spike.
The prototype should be ready by the beginning of 2021. The EMX dirt bike is a joint development project of Dohms Projecten B.V. and Spike Technologies B.V. and is supported by Yamaha Motor Europe N.V. and the KNMV.
