Husqvarna Motorcycles Launches All-New EE 1.18 and EE 1.20 Electric Balance Bikes

Eseential riding skills made easily accessible to junior riders.

With the launch of the EE 1.18 and EE 1.20 by STACYC, there is now an electric balance bike in the Husqvarna Motorcycles lineup for every child up to 12 years old. 

The sometimes-tricky transition from pedal to motorized power has never been simpler than it is with the Husqvarna Motorcycles EE 1 range. While the EE 1.12 and EE 1.16 already meet this challenge for the youngest learners, the arrival of the EE 1.18 and EE 1.20 means there is an offering for all junior age groups to hone their skills in preparation for the transition to full-blown motocross machines.

The new EE 1.18 is the next choice in the balance bike lineup for riders progressing across the EE 1 range. Sized to suit riders between the ages of eight and 10, the EE 1.18 is complete with 18-inch wheels; hydraulic disc brakes front and rear; and a strong aluminum frame paired with a steel, BMX-style fork. Capable of handling off-road terrain with ease, the EE 1.18 is the perfect model for riders looking to take their skills to the next level.

Featuring three selectable ride modes, the EE 1.18 offers easy progression for all skill levels. For riders new to two wheels, the training mode has a top speed of 9 mph. The standard mode is set at 13.5 mph for those developing their skills, while more experienced riders can select the advanced mode for speeds up to 18 mph. The removable lithium-ion battery with a user-friendly power-tool style interface delivers 30 to 45 minutes of riding time with quick and easy changes to keep the wheels turning.Weighing just 31 pounds including the battery, the EE 1.18 is lightweight and keeps most of its weight positioned low on the frame to ensure it is easy to handle, boosting a rider’s confidence.

All the skills necessary to ride a powered two-wheeler can be honed on the Husqvarna Motorcycles EE 1.20. An all-aluminum, TIG-welded frame marshals the output of the 36-volt brushless electric motor, a Manitou J-Unit Machete front fork with 80 millimeters of travel absorbs the bumps, and hydraulic brakes front and rear provide confident stopping power. Innova pneumatic tires on 20-inch wheels provide confident grip as young riders master their machine and the terrain. 

With the ability to select between three ride modes ranging from 10 to 20 mph, the EE 1.20 allows riders to learn the basics of their machines or open things up to a dirt-turning pace. With a light yet serious build, the EE 1.20 can unlock endless riding potential. 

Husqvarna Motorcycles EE 1.18 and EE 1.20 electric balance bikes embody everything that riding a powered two-wheeler should be: fun, exciting and stylish. These new models are the perfect bridge from the smaller EE 1.12 and EE 1.16, along with the EE 2, EE 3 and EE 5, to the full minicycle range and the next step when junior riders have the confidence to test their newfound skills in competition.

Beta’s prototype testing has been going on for more than four years, and the manufacturer from Florence, Italy, is ready to release the production model to the masses. The wait is over for the all-new 2024 450 RX Motocross model.

Beta has kept no secrets in its desire to chase the world of motocross, with the early U.S. introduction of the 300 RX two-stroke model in 2021 about the same time as the first shots were taken of the prototype 450 RX four-stroke model racing in the MXGP championship. It is officially the first four-stroke motocross bike built by Beta; the 450 RX model was designed to carry on the Beta tradition of rideability: to offer a ride that is more forgiving while still providing performance that will encourage aggressive riding.
