For 2020 we have a really good kids electric dirt bike lineup
Why you should get an Electric kids dirt bike?
Your kid now can mob around the backyard without the neighbors complaining about the noise.
I really feel that eliminating the sound pollution that a gas-powered kids dirt bike makes is worth the switch to an electric dirt bike.
This is really great for the sport where noise emissions are a concern.
Reasons to get your kids an e-bike
- No gas

NO mess and charge it and go!
Well….which electric dirt bike should you get?
I have a list below that ranks the quality available kid’s electric dirt bikes. The list is in order of what is what ranking I would give them.
Top 5 Best Electric Dirt bikes for Kids 2020
- KTM SX E 5 / Husqvarna EE 5
- Beta Minicross E
- Oset MX-10
- Razor SX500 Dirt Rocket McGrath
- Razor MX500 Dirt Rocket
So these are the TOP 5 best electric dirt bikes for kids. The top 3 are really well built electric dirt bikes.
The #1 best kids electric bike is the KTM SX E-5
#1 2020 KTM SX E 5 | 2020 Husqvarna EE 5
KTM owns Husqvarna and both electric dirt bikes are the same with the exception of the plastic and name.
Ktm is very well known in the dirt bike world to build race ready dirt bikes. For 2020 they have released the 2020 KTM SX E 5 kids electric motocross dirt bike.
KTM built these electric motocross bikes to compete with their gas-powered brothers (KTM SX50 + KTM 65SX).
This kid’s electric dirt bike from KTM is a race ready motocross dirt bike.
KTM SX E5 electric dirt bike specs | Husqvarna EE 5 electric dirt bike specs
- WP AER air forks
- WP rear PDS shock
- Lithium-ion battery
- 70 min charge time
- Front and rear disc brakes
- 48 V – BLDC motor with outer rotor
- Adjustable frame (50SX – 65SX)
- 2 hours of general riding
I fully expect that these KTM electric dirt bikes are more than capable of competing with the other kids Petro powered motocross bikes.
The power might even be better and more consistent. This really helps to keep lap times down. With the KTM SX E 5, you no longer have to worry about gas and messing with the carb.
The KTM 50SX which is a gas-powered dirt bike also has an automatic clutch. These types of clutches are not as reliable as a standard manual clutch basket.
The gas-powered auto clutch basically just slips as you increase the power. It then will get tight enough once you have high enough RPM. This makes the dirt bike harder to ride for your kids.
However, with the E dirt bikes, they don’t have gears either but are reliable and do not have the same issues that the KTM 50 SX auto clutch has.
The KTM or Husqvarna kids electric dirt bikes will be easier to ride.
If you are serious about wanting your kid to have the best kids electric dirt bike on the market then the KTM or the Husky are the way to go.
Like I mentioned before KTM built these e-bikes to race motocross. In fact, I won’t be surprised if KTM eliminates all of the 2 strokes KTM 50 SX bikes for the Junior motocross serious this year.
#2 Beta Minicross E dirt bike
Beta motorcycle makes quality enduro and offroad dirt bikes.
Their Beta Minicross E is geared towards those kids that want to get into dirt biking but maybe need something that is quiet and easy to ride.
This bike is designed like the KTM. However, it uses less sophisticated batteries and motor.
Beta Minicross E electric dirt bike specs
- 750 Watt/36 volt Motor
- 3 lead acid batteries 12v each
- 1 hour run time
- Inverted fork
- Rear shock
- 94.5 lbs
This means that the performance isn’t going to match the KTM. However, this also means that the Beta minicross E is going to be more affordable.
If you want your kid to be able to have fun and ride around on the motocross track or trails.
If you don’t plan on riding out in the middle of nowhere, the Beta Minicross with the larger suspension and better brakes, this would be a better option in my opinion than a CRF50.
#3 OSET MX-10 dirt bike
OSET is well known in the trials bike world and they decided to make an electric motocross bike for kids.
Oset years ago was worried about all the noise when helping their kids ride gas powered dirt bikes.
Oset built a handful of quality kids electric trials bikes.
The seat height of the OSET MX-10 is more comparable to the CRF50 or TTR 50 bikes.
This OSET MX10 electric bike comes with high-quality suspension and brakes.
You can jump and have fun on the MX-10.
This would be a great starter electric dirt bike for your kids. It has multiple different power modes, which allows your kid to grow into the bike.
OSET MX-10 electric dirt bike specs
- OSET 20ah lithium battery
- 48v OSET drive system
- 3 power modes
- Adjustable seat height
*** Note: I haven’t been able to find out what the run time or the charge time is yet.
#4 #5 Razor SX 500 Dirt Rocket – McGrath | Razor MX 500 Dirt Rocket
Both of these bikes are built by the same company Razor. In fact, they are exactly the same just with different graphic kids. Kinda like the KTM and the Husqvarna.
I added Razor electric dirt bikes to this list as I believe that while they are not built as well as the other 3 bikes in this article.
They are good enough and price well that your kids can get A TON of fun out of them.
The Razor MX500 / SX500 are great bikes to get your kids started into dirt biking. You don’t have to invest thousands of dollars into a bike that your kid is going to out grow.
They aren’t too terrible when it comes to build quality but they don’t have the high-quality motor, battery, and suspension that the other bikes come with.
I have personally owned the Razor MX350 and my kids rode it for years. They loved it.
Razor SX 500 Dirt Rocket – McGrath | Razor MX 500 Dirt Rocket electric dirt bike specs
- 15 mph
- 40 min battery life
- charge time 5-7 hours
- Front and rear disc brakes
- front inverted forks
So, now that I have given you the top 2020 best electric bikes you can buy for your kids.
Let’s talk about how much each of these kids electric bikes cost
- KTM SX E 5 / Husqvarna EE 5 $5000
- Beta Minicross E $1800
- Oset MX-10 $3000
- Razor SX500 $659.99
- Razor MX500$659.99
As I mentioned, these are the BEST kid’s electric dirt bikes. Not the cheapest.
KTM built their’s to be competitive with the kids 2 stroke motocross bikes.
So far they are.
Beta and Oset are more geared towards replacing like a honda CRF50 type of gasoline powered dirt bikes.
Either way, if you are serious about your kid racing or riding motocross…
Go with the KTM SX E 5
Just want to trail ride and have fun…..the Beta Minicross and the OSET MX-10 are a solid bet.
