Electric motorcycles are becoming more and more popular, with great e-bikes out there. But if there's one sport where the electric motorcycle should excel it's trial. You don't need a long range, you need a lot of torque and a light bike.
That's what GasGas thought, and since they are a leader in trial bikes, they made an electric version of their trial motorcycle; the TXT-e. They handed it over to Frenchman Thierry Raoul who put the bike through its pace.
Here's the video of him having fun with the GasGas. Notice how he can manage to move it sideways as if it weighs nothing. Climbing obstacles seems to be no problem for the electric bike. Quite impressive.
The bike weighs 67 kg, including the batteries and has a 14 kW electric engine. Click here to read more about the gasGas TXT-e
