The new battery technology of motocross bikes for sale
Motocross bikes and the technology behind them is changing everyday. Thanks to improved battery technology, electric motocross bikes are assuming an ever growing place in the ranks of the motocross industry and are garnering a larger following of riders every year.
The electric bikes have so many advantages over their gasoline powered counterparts. One big plus is that the electric bikes are completely silent. Gone is the terrible sound of the two-stroke bike plowing through the dirt. The whine from the old gasoline powered bikes can be damaging to both the rider and the environment around him or her. Many motocross bikes have actually been restricted from use in cities and populated rural areas due to this noise pollution.
Since the battery technology has improved by leaps and bounds over the last few years, the electric bikes have become lighter and lighter. Now, the electric bikes weigh less than their gasoline counterparts giving them a huge advantage in competitions. The weight advantage can be almost 50% when compared to a similar gas powered bike. This translates not only into faster and more controlled riding but a higher degree of safety.
The battery packs on the newer electric motocross bikes are removable for ease of charging. Being able to take the battery pack out can aid the owner by allowing him or her to charge the batteries is less time. Charging times can vary from 8 hours for a trickle charge to 40 minutes for a speed charge. The bikes even come with a switch that lets the rider cut power by 50% to conserve battery life. This can come in handy for those long rides out in the country.
The one thing that many riders find disconcerting about the electric motocross bikes is the absence of the noise and vibration from the engine. This noise was often how the rider judged throttle position and RPMs. It takes some time for rider to adjust to the lack of audible feedback and the powerful electric motor but it comes with a little time. The electric bikes are not a toy and are so powerful that they deserve respect from the rider.
Because electric bikes have few moving parts that can break or need maintenance, they are very easy to take care of. As more and more riders discover the benefits of electric motocross bikes, we will gradually see more on the competition circuits and in recreational riding circles.
