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.
