Our Story

We like motorcross and we like challenges. The future of motocross has become more and more questionable because of ever increasing environmental restrictions. The solution is electric. EMX Powertrain faced this incredible challenge head-on!

As the future of motocross has become more and more questionable, EMX Powertrain acknowledges the need for change. If motocross is to continue to have a place in our lives, it will have to conform to environmental regulations. The obvious solution to this is going electric.

 

However, while making motocross future-proof, it should still be motocross. EMX Powertrain faced this incredible challenge head-on!

 

Starting as a technical collaboration by Dohms Projecten and ELEO Technologies, the primary objective of EMX Powertrain was to explore the opportunities for developing an electric alternative to a motocross bike with similar competitive qualities as its existing equivalent. With the support of Yamaha Motor Europe N.V. and the Royal Dutch Motorcyclists Association (KNMV), EMX Powertrain developed and tested the EMX Pro, its first prototype.

 

EMX Powertrain transitioned into an independent innovation and technology company in 2021. In testing the EMX Pro left great impressions on its professional test riders and proved itself as a promising foundation for the development of electric dirt bikes. Aided by new perspectives and the extensive experience of its test riders, EMX Powertrain completed development of the EMX XF30, which became available for pre-ordering in May 2022 and will hit the ground in Q1 2023.

Our Journey

May 2022
Market introduction
For the first time, people could now pre-order their very own EMX motocross bike, the XF30. Following two years of development, engineering, testing and production, the bike was introduced to market.
February 2022
Racing
Getting acknowledged by the FIM, EMX Powertrain was drafted in to becoming an official manufacturer for the all-new electric racing series, the FIM E-Xplorer World Cup.
Early 2021
Proving Grounds
Concluding the testing and verification process, the EMX Pro, as it was called now, was put to the ultimate test on the Dutch sandtracks and made an instant impression.
November 2020
Testing
The bike was put on the test bench for the first time, to learn if the hard work on engineering paid off.
July 2020
Conceptualize
The concept of the EMX Powertrain first prototype electric motocross bike was revealed, featuring a Japanese built chassis, a swappable battery pack and, of course, the EMX Powertrain.
March 2020
Engineering
After defining the available space and conducting an initial feasibility study, the engineering process of the development trajectory could start. Based on the defined specifications and space constraints we chose the main components and started detailing the gearing and positioning of the battery pack.
January 2020
Developing
The technical collaboration of Dohms Projecten, SPIKE Technologies, KNMV and Yamaha Motor Europe was set out to develop a competitive electric MX motorcycle based on a Yamaha YZ250F frame. To kick off this project, we stripped the fuel engine and all associated components from the original chassis in order to define the available space for the electric drive and battery pack.
