Dirt bikes for the youngest of mini shredders don't get much better than the GASGAS MC-E 5! Ideal to learn on, yet equally as capable when it comes to racing, this miniature red rocket does it all. With an easily adjustable seat height and no less than six ride modes to really customise the power delivery, it can be fine tuned and personalised as any junior racer grows in size and confidence. Powered by a modern lithium ion battery, which is housed inside a robust die-cast case, the MC-E 5 offers up to two hours of uninterrupted riding time and needs just over an hour to fully recharge. Built with quality parts just like its bigger brothers, the MC-E 5 is finished with an all red, classic GASGAS look.
The flat seat profile on the MC-E 5 encourages youngsters to quickly learn the fundamentals of sitting and standing correctly with the sleek bodywork allowing for completely unrestricted movement on the bike. With a cool, all-red look, obviously!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Quick. Simple. Clean. Needing just 60 minutes for a full charge or 45 minutes for an 80 percent charge, the MC-E 5 comes with a 110-230 volt worldwide charger, which plugs straight into the battery pack for easy charging
Some call this a multifunctional instrument but we like to call it the Control Center! It's where you can toggle through and activate one of the six pre-installed ride modes based on rider ability, from pure beginner all the way through to those competing in Junior E-Motocross races.
Mistakes happen while learning to ride, which is all part of the fun! This is why the MC-E 5 has a roll-over sensor that stops the motor if the bike hits the deck. There's also a lanyard attached to the rider's wrist and in the event of a fall, this stops the motor. A final layer of security is the dongle located under the seat. This little device overrides the Control Center and saves the selected ride mode, which prevents excitable youngsters from changing to a more powerful setting before they're ready for it.
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.
