Making an electric dirtbike look good is tough, but this one looks like they put wheels on a breaker box.

It's crazy how much this looks exactly like what I pictured in my mind when I read the thread title.

Good to have another manufacturer coming in BUT.....

Look closely at the frame, the build quality is so far off....then they will at some point need linkage and in my opinion, the achilles heel is the electric motor. Note how the swingarm pivot bolt runs through the motor. A complex design and most likely prone to catastrophic failure.

Hats off to them for the effort. If they have the budget to race and develop then all the better.

I won't mention the 3" thick glob of half-ground slag under the footpeg... Or the overspray on all the parts from the everything-assembled rattle can job...

So how 'bout that wiring harness?

Beat me to it. Nothing like riding a Dirtbike with a desk top tower connected to it. That looks like shit.

I don't know, it looks like it could make ice cubes on the fly. I may be in.

Well when the product looks like shit from the sidelines, it’s really, really easy. My friends University class made an electric trials bike that looked way tidier and “production” than this.

Looks like they pulled the front end and shock straight off a Kawi so rough draft is a good assumption.

It’s ugly as phuque but it does leave a lot of room for sponsors stickers wink

Footpegs at a 15-degree angle for that extra dose of "slip off the pegs" -iness.

B*tch b*tch B*tch , darn, some of you guys are relentless. Life is that miserable hey?
This seems to be the Russian equivalent of Alta. Interesting. They go pretty gnarly in testing. Not afraid to go in water and even show in the video what looks like a bike failure...
The swingarm pivot is concentric with the drive, like BMW did with their 450?
It would be nice to get some specs. Also, this was from last year. I wonder about the progress so far.
It has some sort of cooling, either the motor or the battery. Spotted some sort of radiator behind the front number plate.
Thanks for the post.

Check out their youtube channel, they did also make a glider which took off from its own power...

This bike has been around for a while. I guess they're calling it the CM250 now but originally it was the Milandr SM250 Obviously it's still being developed but it definitely packs some power. Would love to see this (or really ANY of the multitudes of e-bikes we see prototypes of) actually come to market some day.
