Southern California-based Greenger Powersports has teamed up with American Honda to produce the CRF-E2, a new mini electric motorcycle for kids. The bike will be available at participating American Honda dealerships around the country starting at $2,950.

The off-road bike mimics the styling of Honda’s larger CRF line of motocross machines and is powered by a 20 amp-hour/960 watt-hour lithium-ion battery and 48V brushless DC motor. It’s capable of producing 3.4 hp and up to 18.4 pound-feet of torque and has two drive mode settings; the lowest limits the E2 to 10 mph, while the highest setting allows riders to reach 20 mph. The battery can run for up to two hours between charges. A full charge will take four hours, or 2.5 hours with the optional quick-charge system. The battery is also swappable, making longer days in the saddle possible.

The 106-pound machine utilizes a twin-spar aluminum frame and features hydraulic disc brakes front and rear. It’s suspended by a 33mm telescopic fork and a DNM shock with adjustable preload and rebound damping. Brake levers are adjustable, as is seat height, which can be set at 24.8 inches or 25.5 inches. The maximum rider weight for the CRF-E2 is 99 pounds. Kenda Millville K771 tires are wrapped around two 12-inch aluminum spoke wheels.

“We’re pleased to partner with Greenger Powersports to offer an innovative, approachable electric dirt bike to our customers and dealers,” American Honda Senior Manager of Customer Engagement Bill Savino said in a joint press release. “One of Honda’s mission statements is ‘ensuring the joys for the next generation,’ and the CRF-E2 clearly aligns with that objective. We look forward to working together with Greenger to grow motorcycling well into the future.”

Greenger Powersports Manager of Sales and Marketing Brad Chapman said, “The CRF-E2 will expand the enjoyment of riding off-road on two wheels to more families. The appeal to traditional enthusiasts is obvious, as it’s just a cool little dirt bike. At the same time, it breaks down barriers with people who wouldn’t otherwise consider powersports, but who are already comfortable with electricity’s increasingly ubiquitous role in our society. We can’t wait to see more kids getting the chance to discover what dirt bikes are all about.”
