2020 Husqvarna EE5 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

POWER UNIT

Drivetrain

The permanent magnet electric motor features an advanced design and excellent reliability. Producing a peak power of 5 kW, the motor is powered by 84 Li-Ion cells, which provide a capacity of 907 Wh in a low 48 V configuration. An intelligent, state-of-the-art control unit is integrated within the package and guarantees a spontaneous, but controllable power delivery. The use of an electric motor means there is one permanent drive, eliminating the need for a clutch or gearbox. This results in a simple and uncomplicated riding experience for young riders.

Electric motor

Producing a peak power of 5 kW, the permanent magnet motor features an extremely compact and slim design that is well suited to the smaller chassis. Due to its dust and waterproof layout the air-cooled motor is wear and maintenance-free. The integrated control unit (ECU) guarantees a direct, but very controllable power delivery.

Multifunctional instrument panel

A multi-functional instrument panel located between the steering head and seat allows the user to select six different ride modes, with different power characteristics available to suit pure beginners and experienced racers alike. In addition, the instrument panel displays the remaining charge of the battery.

Battery

The EE 5 is fitted with 84 modern lithium-ion cells, in a robust die-cast aluminium casing mounted just above the motor. The stored energy is 907 Wh, enough for more than two hours of riding for a beginner and 25 minutes for the fastest riders, depending on the terrain and conditions. The integrated battery management system (BMS) ensures the safety and longevity of the battery pack.

Charger

The external worldwide charger supplying up to 900 W can be connected to any 110 or 230 Volt socket and plugs directly into the battery pack for easy charging. Charging time for 80% charge: 45 minutes Charging time for 100% charge: 70 minutes

Safety

The EE 5 is fitted with a roll-over sensor kill-switch that cuts off the power when needed. A lanyard attached between the rider’s wrist and the kill switch stops the motor when removed, or in the event of an unexpected fall by the rider. The ride modes can be saved with a dongle located below the seat, which prevents younger riders from changing to more powerful ride modes on their own.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS – CHASSIS

Bodywork

The bodywork of the EE 5 is modelled on the successful full-size motocross range. This allows smaller riders to experience the same ergonomic feelings, instilling confidence and comfort in all riding conditions. Additionally, the ergonomics and comfort allow riders to perform at their peak for extended periods of time.

Frame

The high strength chromoly steel frame is slightly adapted to house the electric drivetrain and integrates carefully calculated parameters of longitudinal flex and torsional rigidity to benefit handling and suspension functionality. It guarantees easy handling and precise cornering, along with outstanding stability.

Front Suspension

Featuring the latest in suspension technology, the EE 5 is fitted with the revolutionary WP XACT forks. Besides being very light weight, the 35 mm USD air forks feature exceptional damping and comfort characteristics, allowing riders to push their limits with complete confidence.

With 205 mm of wheel travel, the air unit in the left fork leg can also be adjusted easily with the use of an air pump. This allows for quick adjustment due to rider preferences, weight or track conditions.

Rear Suspension

Linked directly to the swingarm, the WP monoshock is matched perfectly to the front forks for the very best balance and damping characteristics. Additionally, the rear shock offers 185 mm of suspension travel, is fully adjustable and can be tailored to rider preferences or track conditions.

Brakes

Featuring the same level of technology offered on the full-size motocross range, the EE 5 is fitted with hydraulically operated brake callipers and waved front and rear brake discs. The system ensures advanced brake feeling and stopping performance in all conditions.

Wheels

Mirroring the full-size motocross range, the EE 5 uses lightweight, black anodised, aluminium rims that provide the highest levels of strength and reliability. The standard MAXXIS tyres ensure progressive grip on a variety of different terrain.

Seat height

The EE 5 allows the seat height to be adjusted at multiple levels. The standard model comes with a seat height of 698 mm, which can be easily reduced in two steps to 653 mm. This is done by lowering the bodywork/seat and then mounting the rear shock in an alternative position, together with lowering the front forks in the triple clamps.

In addition, with a Suspension Lowering Kit from the Husqvarna Motorcycles Accessories catalogue, the suspension units can be further lowered for a minimum seat height of just 556 mm, which accommodates four-year-old riders, or even younger.

Handlebars

The tapered NEKEN handlebars are made of high-quality aluminium alloy for strength and safety. From a central diameter of 28 mm to 18 mm at the ends, the bars are fitted with a lock-on ODI left side grip, while a newly developed throttle assembly for the electronic drive, with a volcanized ODI grip, is mounted on the right side. The thinner diameter of both grips increases control and reduces fatigue for younger riders with smaller hands. A new handlebar pad offers chest protection.

Graphics

Modelled on the full-size motocross bikes, the EE 5 features striking and modern graphics in white and yellow, with light blue to differentiate its electric drive. Additionally, the graphics are applied using an in-mould process to ensure the best durability and quality.
