The smaller version of the X160 weighs 7 kg lighter. The width of its tires is 43 cm, the minimum ground clearance is 22 cm, the travel of the rear suspension is 7.5 cm. The engine power is 3 kW, which creates a torque of 220 Nm. The on-board power supply provides a range of 65 km in off-road conditions.
Both e-bikes are equipped with an electronically controlled throttle, adjustable front fork and rear suspension. They can also be retrofitted with standard motorcycle parts.
The large and smaller versions of the Dirt are priced at $ 4, 500 and $ 3, 000, respectively. Electric bikes will be available for purchase in the first quarter of 2020.
