EMX is a Dutch electric racing technology company and manufacturer of high-performance motocross bikes.

Mission

 

EMX mission is to make motosport, specifically motocross sport, future-proof with the development and production of high-performance electric motocross bikes and maintaining the looks, feels and experience of a “true” motocross bike.

 

Story

 

EMX Powertrain transitioned into a manufacturer and an independent electric racing technology company in 2021 and contributes to the sustainable motosport industry worldwide.

 

Aided by new perspectives and the extensive experience of its test riders, EMX completed development of the XF30, which became available as limited edition. The XF30 combines the look and feel of proven motocross engineering with the thrill of electric power. It’s designed to let you ride, explore and race electric whenever you like!

 

The XF30 is the first commercial application to be followed by its successor and a street-legal off road bike in 2024.

 

With his engineering company Elmar Dohms started to develop an electric high-performance dirt bike for competitive racing in 2018. In 2019 Dohms Projecten and ELEO Technologies formed a technical collaboration, project EMX Powertrain, and with the support of Yamaha Motor Europe N.V. and the Royal Dutch Motorcyclists Association (KNMV), they tested the EMX Pro, its first prototype and launched it in April 2021. 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. In testing the EMX Pro left great impressions on its professional test riders and proved itself as a promising foundation for the further development of high-performance electric dirt bikes.

 

Elmar Dohms: “I have experienced how motocross sport has developed in the Netherlands and Europe and has become a topic of discussion on account of noise and CO2 emissions. Noise is an immediate threat and has forced several MX tracks to close their doors. Changes are going on in terms of noise and environmental constraints which are limiting the suitability of conventional bikes, which is a worldwide issue. An electric motocross bike that produces no noise makes practicing motocross easier.”

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.
