I don't know if there's been video posted of these bikes actually running before if you go to Jarvis's Instagram there is video of guys riding them

Hell yeah. What's the process for swapping out batteries? How much do spare batteries and spare chargers cost?

I would love to try the boy on an electric for his last year on 50's.

I've been wondering if these KTM / Husky electric minis could start a new generation of pit bikes. Not sure what the price will be, but most likely it would be too high for most people to consider one. Hopefully when the play bike market makes its way to electric power, they will be well enough built for adults to enjoy them too.

I thought they weren’t coming out for another year? KTMs getting released first and then the Huskies later. Hell, maybe it’s been a year since I read the press release.

they're racing them at MEC. late last year i heard from a dealer that both were hoped to be ready for mid summer. doesn't look like thats still the plan.

Price on bike. Price on spare battery. That is what will determine if this will be our next purchase.

Yeah I read about the MEC. I thought the KTM was a fall 2019 release and Husky a summer 2020 release, but I guess I was mistaken. Just looked and the PR I read was written in 2018. This is getting exciting. lol

i'd be shocked if they weren't at the same time. but i could be wrong.

So if they are the same price as gas which one do you buy?

I would still buy gas.

Most likely electric, just from the fast 50 horror stories I’ve read. lol

fairly certain close pricing won't even vaguely be a deciding factor.

I’d go electric 100% in that case! I know my kid will be able to sleep on he gate and still pull the holeshot on fuellys.

If the price was the same, I'd go electric for my boys. I wouldn't pay more though because the gas ones are already too damn expensive.

That thing looks like a PW 50 speedwise, kids wont even be able to jump them.

Im guessing 6-7k range. Thanks, but no thanks. Iwill most likely get my kid a 110L for his first bike. 2k (110) vs 6k+ (electricc 50) vs 4k+ (KTM 50).

I reckon you could easily justify maybe $750-$1k more and pretty much save that in petrol, oil, servicing and working on the thing time.

The Oset is about $3000, and the 2017/2018 GasGas was $2000. The 2019 GasGas is a new design and Idk the price. Anyhow I'm hoping it's not much more, or even less than a gas 50.

Neither are race bikes and neither have the name of KTM/Husky. I bet at 4 grand they would be gone instantly. if AMA legal.

Compare prices of go karts. I was looking into them a little for a go kart track investment, if I remember correctly gas karts that went around 50 MPH were $2500-3500 new. Electric were I believe 5-8k.

If an e50 is under 5k I would be absolutely shocked. I still think you will see around $6-7k, but for a 50 I would certainly prefer to see a price much lower than that.

I won't be purchasing one if they are that price. $4k is appropriate if they would like to start a revelation. This new concept should be focused at acquiring existing and new participants due to accessibility (quiet) , ease of use and affordability. Even if they don't turn a profit on this particular model they would benefit in the long run.

The alta mxr was 11,999. A KTM 450 is $9899. Roughly 20% increase. So a ktm 50sx is $4349, so a 20% increase = $5218. Plus KTM has the existing platform so manufacturing should be cheaper to produce than Alta. Cost At $5218 would be an error if they are looking to grow the sport. $4k out the door.

I wish! A KTM/ Husky 50 is about $4,500 US msrp. Unfortunately I can't see an E50 being any less than that. If the KTM JR SX Challenge is replacing the 2 stroke 50's with an electric equivalent, that speaks volumes. If we can expect to see a similar price point that Alta had vs what they were competing with, it'll more than likely be $5,000- $6,000. Which is a lot! Especially when you take into consideration that it's the current 50 platform with an electric battery and motor retro fit into that chassis, rather than an entire motorcycle built around the idea of electric to begin with (Which I'm sure will come in time) The positive to note is that it's not equipped with anything inferior to the gas 50, in that regard, from what I've found. I'm all for something that costs less than what a new 50 does right now and since they didn't have to put much R&D into anything other than the motor, battery and charger, maybe suspension settings, it could be more affordable than we think. $7,000 is a number that I could see being presented if it was a full blown race ready Alta 50 built from the ground up that weighs about the same as a gas 50 with an hour+ of ride time that comes with a spare battery that can be changed out relatively easy and a reasonable charge time.

My kid just got on ktm 50 mini, and rides pw's still too. Id buy one of these if I he could race it, not sure how that will work though. Sure a lot of moto dads would be protesting. Wouldn't want my kid being in some "special class" with like one other kid, while 50cc 4-6 has like 20 riders.
