Wonder how the power is on these for 200 lbs. I see a new pit bike in my future.

I like that thing

9/26/2019 9:04 AM

That thing is sick!

9/26/2019 9:12 AM

Yep, I dig it...

That little sucker looks impressive. Rather than looking like a pee wee with a car battery in place of where the engine used to be, this appears to have had a lot of work/thought involved. This thing has to have been in the works for quite sometime, everything on it appears to be very much "purpose built", rather than utilize what we already have and strap an electric motor on it.

Looks very good!

9/26/2019 9:15 AM

how much?!??!?!?!??!

9/26/2019 9:15 AM

That looks better than the Husky and KTM

That thing is cool!

Just wait until the minidads grab a handful of diodes and the soldering iron.

That may be the best looking bike Cobra has produced. I’m happy to see the company still developing. It looks like there is a radiator on the right side. Is the motor/battery water cooled?

It appears from the hoses that both are water cooled.

Better looking than their ICE bikes! I want one.

9/26/2019 9:50 AM

$6,499 is my guess!

2021 model / release, is that right?

I thought they were coming out with something now, in competition with KTM / KTHusky.

2021 is correct.

I posted the following in the KTM/Husky E-Mini News thread.

Breaking News

Cobra Introducing New Electric 50-Sized Dirt Bike for 2021.

The electric mini news keeps coming! Cobra, which has been making high-performance 50cc minicycles since 1993, will introduce a 2021 model electric minicycle a week from now at the 2019 AIMExpo. In addition, Cobra will display an E-assist race bicycle.

We've talked to Cobra a bit about this new dirt bike and the process behind it. Cobra and KTM, competitors in the market place, have been working together for a few years to communicate with race officials on classes and ideas for electric motocross minicycles. It appears the time is coming soon, as we have heard about proposed electric-only minicycle classes, and now the market will soon feature new models intended to compete in those divisions.

We'll see the 2021 Cobra CX-E5 next Thursday morning at the AIMExpo. In the meantime, here's today's press release directly from Cobra.

U.S. motorcycle manufacturer Cobra MOTO, LLC is announcing the debut of two radically new products at the 2019 AIMExpo presented by Nationwide next week.

“The entire Cobra team has been working incredibly hard,” said Sean Hilbert, Cobra’s president. “We are never going to stray from our core mission of manufacturing the finest youth competition vehicles in the world, and we have been laser focused on the emerging technologies that will help define our evolving market into the future.”

Hilbert continued, “The all-new products we are debuting this year at the AIMExpo will revolutionize youth racing on two wheels.”

Cobra will first unveil its incredible CX-E5. This is the company’s first battery electric motorcycle, and it is designed to compete in the future Electric Limited youth classes in AMA competition. This incredible minicycle features similar performance to the current Cobra 50cc internal combustion engine offerings, a quick-change battery, and several operation modes so parents can meter out performance according to skill level. This model will make its debut in the 2021 model year.

Second on the agenda will be Cobra’s first entry into the e-bicycle market. The “Iron Man” model e-bike is designed as both a training tool for hard-core minicycle racers and as a race bicycle in its own right. “We’re doing essentially the same thing in the e-bicycle market as we did in the minicycle market nearly 30 years ago,” said Hilbert. “We’re forging new territory by bringing to market a high-end competition e-bike for youth racers.” The Iron Man will be powered by Shimano’s DU-E7000 e-driveline and will feature full suspension, 24-inch wheels, and high-end componentry. It will be ready for the most demanding off-road conditions.

The world will get a chance to see these models for the first time on Thursday September 26th at 11:00am EST at Cobra’s AIMExpo booth (#2415). We’ll see you there!

Here is the way I decipher the model years.

The KTM's are supposed to be releasing the last quarter of 2019. If the Cobra's are 2021 models, then they should be released in 2020. Maybe about this time next year? So, that would be a difference of about 8-10 months of release time between Cobra's and KTM's. I'm just spit balling, so perhaps my interpretation is off.

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Love it. Wish the boy had 2021 on a 50 still, just to try one. Maybe the boy will get to demo at the end of 2020. I told them to make a 65 soon.

Cobra is much smaller than KTM, and possibly they need the additional time to acquire parts, tooling, etc, to mass produce these things. Whereas KTM can attain all the needed goodies in a much quicker time frame. Just a guess.... Regardless, these little Cobra's look way more advanced than the Austrian bikes coming down the pike.

Don’t accidentally open the coolant cap and put some fuel in. 😉

If that thing is gonna be 7 grand, good luck.
It lacks the 2 things that even made me want a motorcycle as a kid.
My 7 year old daughter rides a 19 Husky 85 and started at 4.5 on a 84 KX60 I took all of 1 minute to limit the throttle on, and another 2 to teach her clutch and shift.
