Features

Electronics

  • BATTERY: 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.

Handling

  • FRAME: 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.
  • FRONT SUSPENSION: 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.
  • REAR SUSPENSION: 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.
  • SEAT HEIGHT: 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.

Motor

  • ELECTRIC MOTOR: 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.
  • CONTROL CENTER: 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.

Parts

  • SAFETY: 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!
  • BRAKES: 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.
  • WHEELS: 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.

Style

  • BODYWORK: 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.
  • GRAPHICS: 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.
  • HANDLEBARS: 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.
