2020 TRS On-E Kids First Look: Youth Electric Trials Motorcycle

One of the best ways to get a youngster started on motorcycles is an observed trials bike. Speeds are low, which increases safety, and a young rider can practice in a backyard that is modest in size. With the 2020 TRS On-E Kids trials bike, it makes home-riding even more practical, as it uses a nearly silent electric powerplant. Thanks to the use of many bicycle components, weight is kept to a minimum.

2020 TRS On-E Kids First Look - Electric Motorcycle for Youth

Although designed for riders from six to ten years old, the On-E Kids motorcycle is a sophisticated machine. There are four power modes, with a range designed to work for everyone from an inexperienced rider to an expert competitor. The motor cranks out 24 ft-lbs of torque, which is impressive for a motorcycle that weighs just 55 pounds, and will have a lightweight rider.

The monocoque frame is made of cast aluminum, as is the swingarm. Suspension travel is nearly four inches at the front and 4.5 inches in the rear. The suspension has damping adjustments, as well as spring-preload adjustment for the DNM shock, which gets help from linkage. Shod with Rebel XBike Trial block-pattern tires, the 20-inch front wheels will easily roll over most youth-level obstacles. Braking is by Shimano, with MT400 hydraulic calipers working on a 160mm disc on each wheel.
