The Spanish motorcycle manufacturer Rieju has caught us by surprise with the release of what looks to be an incredibly promising new enduro model, the Rieju eMR electric dirt bike.
It should come as no surprise that Rieju would eventually release an electric dirt bike of some sort, especially given that the Spanish company also owns Torrot, an electric manufacturer that focuses solely on kids electric dirt bikes. We’ve seen electric offerings from Rieju in the form of eScooters like the Nuuk, a hip looking step-through scooter for urban riders and commuters, but the Rieju eMR steps directly into Rieju’s hard enduro pedigree.
Rieju E-MR Specifications
What We Know
We don’t know a ton about the new Rieju electric dirt bike yet, but what we do know is that it looks almost identical to the steel chassis of Rieju’s MR Racing and MR Pro models that come respectively in both 250cc and 300cc flavors for hard enduro riders. More similarly, the eMR shares the same dimensions and travel to the MR Ranger, a slightly smaller version of the full-size enduro options offered from Rieju. The eMR is sporting a KYB fork with 270mm of travel and a KYB shock with 121mm of travel.
For the eMR power plant, Rieju is claiming an impressive peak power output of 60kW. Although the voltage has not yet been disclosed, the battery is claimed to be 48Ah and has a recharge time of 2-3 hours. It does not appear that the battery is interchangeable but it does claim to have a charger on-board, which is a very intriguing feature that we have recently seen on the new Surron Ultra Bee.
More specifications will be rolling in and expect to see more updates about the exciting new Rieju eMR electric dirt bike.

The 2T models are now marketed under the Rieju brand. The operation includes the intellectual and industrial platform of the Torrot enduro platform.

Example of this are the models MR Racing 250 and 300 cc, the MR Pro at 250 and 300cc. and the MR Ranger at 200 and 300cc.
