So you are looking at a list of the best Electric Dirt Bikes for Adults in 2020 and are in the process of trying to figure out which one to get.
Well….Here is 3 options that I think are high-quality electric dirt bikes you should consider.
I wish this list was longer but, right now we only have a few solid options for adult-sized electric dirt bikes.
The kids are getting all the attention when it comes to the different options for electric dirt bikes.
In fact, major dirt bike brands have released 2020 kids electric dirt bikes that can go toe to toe with a gas-powered dirt bike. (Yeah I am jealous)
There are prototypes of full-sized adult electric dirt bikes from Honda and Husqvarna (Not sure if the Husky is real or not).
The Alta Motors Redline electric dirt bike is/was the closet adult electric dirt bike that could go toe to toe with a full-sized gas-powered dirt bike.
Will these electric dirt bike prototypes be released for 2020 or 2021?
We can hope.
So, now that we have the wish list out of the way lets talk about what electric dirt bikes you CAN get for 2020.
Top Three Electric Dirt Bikes for Adults for 2020
- 2020 KTM Freeride E-XC
- 2020 ZERO FX
- USED Alta Motors Redline (I know right)
The 2020 KTM Freeride E-XC is an fun choice for any adult
KTM has designed the Freeride E-XC to be a hybrid between a full size enduro / motocross bike and a trials dirt bike.
KTM doesn’t make a trials bike….for now (KTM just purchased 60% of Gas Gas who makes a trials bike)
The Freeride E-XC is a high-quality electric dirt bike that comes with all the quality tried and true parts you come to expect from KTM Factory.
The KTM Freeride is a capable gnarly single-track dirt bike.
Quiet and tons of torque with NO gears make this electric dirt bike very very capable in the tight single track.
The suspension is set up with KTM’s unique WP PDS suspension.
The WP PDS Shock sets on top of the swingarm. This allows for more travel and fewer things for the bottom of the shock linkage to hang up on stuff.
So, why is this electric dirt bike built for you?
This is for the guy who is into riding single track and gnarly single track.
The KTM Freeride was NOT built for those who want to hit the motocross track.
However, KTM claims that electric Freeride can handle jumping with no problems.
Overall this is the VERY best adult Electric Dirt Bike you can buy!
If it was my money the KTM Freeride E-XC is what I would buy.
2020 KTM Freeride E-XC Specifications
- 24.5 max HP @ 5000
- Xplor 48 PDS Shock
- Lithium Ion KTM PowerPack
- Removable battery
- 110 minutes for a full charge, or about 75 minutes for an 80 % charge
- Single speed automatic
- Liquid cooled
- Seat Height 35.82
2020 ZERO FX Dirt Bike, The VERY best adult electric dual sport bike built
Now, we are shifting gears so to speak….
The KTM is an offroad enduro single track slaying dirt bike…..
The 2020 Zero FX electric dirt bike is not…..a single track slaying dirt bike.
Zero Motorcycles has built on and off the road dual sport electric dirt bike. More closely related to a street bike the Zero FX still has some off roading capabilities.
Its probably more capable on the road vs off the road but who cares…
In my opinion, the 2020 Zero FX electric dirt bike is the VERY best adult electric dual sport bike built.
You can ride this from your house to the trails.
All in stealth mode!
You can commute to work and they “get lost” on your way home.
Just make sure that you are close enough to make it back to your house
|ZERO FX ZF3.6 MODULAR||ZERO FX ZF7.2|
|46 miles (74 km)||91 miles (146 km)|
The 2020 Zero FX electric dual sport bikes come with Showa forks and Showa shock.
Showa makes high-quality suspension.
2020 ZERO FX ZF7.2 Specifications
- Range 91 miles City / 39 Highway
- 46 hp / 78 ft lbs torque
- Showa suspension
- Integrated Battery
- 1.8 hours (100% charged) / 1.3 hours (95% charged) – Max chargers
- Seat Height 34.7 in
2020 Zero FX ZF3.6
- Range 46 city / 19 highway
- 27 HP / 78 ft lbs torque
- Ultra fast recharge
- Showa suspension
- Swappable battery
- 1.6 hours (100% charged) / 1.1 hours (95% charged) – Max chargers
- Seat Height 34.7 in
In my opinion, the 2020 Zero FX is the best adult sized dual sport electric dirt bike.
2020 ALTA Redshift MX, The Grown-ups Choice that you can’t buy.
oh wait….they don’t make a 2020 ALTA Redshift…..
People didn’t buy enough of them and Alta Motors closed up shop.
So, you are wondering why I included it in the best electric dirt bikes for 2020?
Its the ONLY electric dirt bike that was built to compete straight up with a gas powered motocross bike.
You can jump it ride it just like you would your motocross dirt bike.
Its not a “Hybrid” like the KTM Freeride or a “Dual Sport” like the ZERO.
I full-blown race bike.
Now….Alta motors did make a dual-sport electric dirt bike as well but I really just want to focus on the motocross version.
For all the reasons mentioned above is why I included it, but really I want one of the big 5 dirt bike manufactures to make one like the Alta E dirt bike.
You can still buy the Alta RedShift MX electric dirt bikes.
In fact, one of my local Powersports dealers has one for sale right now.
