We do electric too! Our MC-E 5 is a no-nonsense junior motocross bike that’s super quiet and super fun. Ideal for youngsters to learn on, it’s fitted with a quick charging electric power pack and offers 6 different ride modes for complete parental control. But make no mistake about it, the MC-E 5 is no toy – it’s a fully-fledged competition bike aimed at both beginners and junior berm bashers. Easy to transport and benefiting from zero emissions and almost zero sound, with its super durable frame, premium WP suspension, overall lightweight construction, adjustable seat height and high-quality parts it’s a bike that’ll ensure hours and hours of fun.
Sharp lines and ergonomics that ensure all young riders and racers feel settled, comfortable and in full control, the MC-E 5 is designed to not only look awesome but allow kids to perform at their best, too.
It’s got to look good, right? Just like every other GASGAS motocross bike the MC-E 5 has a striking look, modern graphics and lots of red, our favorite color! There’s also a splash of blue, to signify its electric drive. All graphics are applied using an in-mold process to ensure long lasting good look.
Youngsters need to feel confident, in control. That’s exactly why we’ve fitted tapered NEKEN handlebars to our MC-E 5. Fitted with smaller diameter grips, junior riders can get a good grasp of their new pride and joy, increasing their control and reducing tiredness. An innovative throttle assembly designed especially for electric drive is fitted with a vulcanized ODI grip while a non-glue lock-on grip is fitted to the left side of the handlebars.
Wrapped around the 5kW motor is a super tough chromoly steel frame. Giving youngsters all-important stability, ease of handling and precise cornering, our engineers have designed each frame to deliver just the right amount of flex and stiffness.
With 205mm of travel the lightweight WP XACT forks deliver seriously impressive, and progressive, front-end damping performance. The 35mm USD forks feature the latest internal tech, allowing youngsters to focus on riding and having fun. Fully adjustable with just a hand pump, the air unit in the left fork leg can be adjusted to suit rider preference, weight and, when they start racing, track conditions.
Quality parts run throughout the MC-E 5, like the WP monoshock, which is linked directly to the swingarm. Set-up to be perfectly matched to the WP XACT forks, the fully adjustable shock offers a massive 185mm of suspension travel to deliver precise rear-end damping.
Being able to put both feet on the floor is essential for young riders and racers. The MC-E 5 has a variable seat height, which can be adjusted from 665mm to 616mm. Quick and easy to do by lowering the seat/bodywork, alternatively, further adjustment can be achieved by mounting the rear shock in a different position and lowering the front forks. To accommodate riders as young as 4, the suspension units can be lowered further with a Suspension Lowering Kit, available from the Accessories catalogue.
Smooth and powerful, the 5kW motor is super compact and the perfect fit for our smaller chassis. Air-cooled, dust and water resistant it’s also wear and maintenance-free. The integrated control unit (ECU) guarantees a direct, but very controllable power delivery.
Some call it a multi-functional instrument, we call it the control center – the little box of lights and magic that’s placed in front of the seat, close to the steering head. Offering riders and parents a choice of 6 different ride modes, power settings can be selected to suit pure beginners or more experienced racers. The control center also displays the remaining battery power.
Riders make mistakes, it’s all part of the fun! But it also has to be safe, which is why the GASGAS MC-E 5 is fitted with a roll-over sensor that cuts off the power if a rider crashes or falls. With a lanyard attached to both their wrist and the bike, in the event of a rider falling the motor is stopped. Adjustable ride modes can also be set and saved with a dongle, preventing excitable racers from changing to more powerful riding mode before they’re ready for them!
To slow youngsters down and to stop mum from worrying, the MC-E 5 has serious stopping power. Fitted with hydraulically operated brake calipers matched to waved front and rear brake discs, the system ensures powerful brake performance in all conditions.
Just like our full-size motocross bikes, the wheels fitted to the MC-E 5 guarantee strength and reliability. Featuring super cool, lightweight black anodized aluminum rims, MAXXIS tires provide the grip, no matter the riding surface.
Our lithium ion battery does two things – powers the MC-E 5 and keeps youngsters smiling like every day is Christmas! A total of 84 modern lithium ion cells are housed within our robust die-cast battery case, which is mounted above the motor. The 907Wh of stored energy is good for two hours of riding for a beginner or 25 minutes for riders that rip. The integrated battery management system (BMS) ensures the safety and longevity of the battery pack.
