At long last, Oset is busting out a full-sized electric motocrosser, the MX-10 at the Dirt Bike Show, at Stoneleigh (UK) next week. After a lot of excitement over their kid-sized dirt bikes, pretty much designed to teach young riders the basics of bike handling while allowing adults to dial in speed limits, and foregoing clutch and transmission challenges, they've been enjoying some huge enthusiasm. This full-sized bike was teased a month or so ago on the Facebook page, and it looks like the same trials-bike formula. We'll update with specs as we get them, but the official launch date looks like Thursday, Oct 30. We're going to guess it's going to be a 24" size, still running 48V, and possibly with a larger pack to handle more weight - but it's just an educated guess.
"The new bike, dubbed the MX-10, isn’t just a rehash of one of the firm’s existing trial machines, but was designed from scratch as a motocross bike, ensuring that the bike is completely fit for purpose.
"The new bike focuses on geometry, adjustability and power output. It aims to shake up the motocross market by providing a credible alternative to petrol-powered machines. To give the option of versatility, aftermarket wheels and tyres can transform this bike for supermoto, too."
Their current 2015 20.0 Racing model is their hottest offering, so to get a hint on the bar they'll likely look to topping with the MX-10, here's the spec rundown on the 20.0 Racing:
- Wheelbase - 1050mm (41.3”)
