OSET 2017 updates and MotoGP launch
UK motorcycle manufacturer OSET officially launch their updated #electric Motocross bikes at Silverstone GP on the 1-4th September 2016.
The popular MX10 (RRP £2750) aimed at kids aged 4-7 has seen a ‘ground-up’ redesign on its geometry and features an adjustable seat that automatically changes the geometry as it raises or lowers. The front forks, rear shocks and brakes are specifically lightweight and the power map has been made linear in delivery by the supervising adult so as to not overawe a novice rider.
Electric motorcycles have a natural advantage for kids; no kickstart, no hot exhaust and it’s super light weight means that generally the rider can pick it up by themselves. Both models see OSET’s Lithium battery’s fitted as standard. Lighter and producing more power and a greater ride time, the batteries represent the culmination of a lengthy R & D exercise that owner Ian Smith says

It’s taken several years of development and testing to arrive at this stage. To manufacture lithium batteries correctly is a long process, requiring careful selection of materials, cells to be used, structure, and with ease of use and reliability of utmost importance.
The OSET battery (48v / 20 amp/hour) has an inbuilt battery management system to prevent over-heating and over-discharging.
The OSET 24.0, available in both Adult and Junior versions. The Junior version is aimed at riders aged 9-14 and up to 61Kgs. It allows juniors to still ride competitively once they have grown out the 20.0.
