Model Description


MC-E 5 2022

 We do electric too! Our MC-E 5 is a no-nonsense junior motocross bike that’s super quiet and super fun. Ideal for youngsters to learn on, it’s fitted with a quick charging electric power pack and offers 6 different ride modes for complete parental control. But make no mistake about it, the MC-E 5 is no toy – it’s a fully-fledged competition bike aimed at both beginners and junior berm bashers. Easy to transport and benefiting from zero emissions and almost zero sound, with its super durable frame, premium WP suspension, overall lightweight construction, adjustable seat height and high-quality parts it’s a bike that’ll ensure hours and hours of fun.
 
BODYWORK
Sharp lines and ergonomics that ensure all young riders and racers feel settled, comfortable and in full control, the MC-E 5 is designed to not only look awesome but allow kids to perform at their best, too.
 
GRAPHICS
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.
 
HANDLEBARS
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 for electric drive is fitted with a vulcanized ODI grip while a non-glue lock-on grip is fitted to the left side of the handlebars.
 
FRAME
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.
 
FRONT SUSPENSION
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.
 
REAR SUSPENSION
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.
 
SEAT HEIGHT
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, alternatively, further adjustment can be achieved by mounting the rear shock in a different position and lowering the front forks. To accommodate riders as young as 4, the suspension units can be lowered further with a Suspension Lowering Kit, available from the Accessories catalogue.
 
ELECTRIC MOTOR
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.
 
CONTROL CENTRE
Some call it a multi-functional instrument, we call it the control centre – the little box of lights and magic that’s placed in front of the seat, close to the steering head. Offering riders and parents a choice of 6 different ride modes, power settings can be selected to suit pure beginners or more experienced racers. The control centre also displays the remaining battery power.
 
SAFETY
Riders make mistakes, it’s all part of the fun! But it also has to be safe, which is why the GASGAS MC-E 5 is fitted with a roll-over sensor that cuts off the power if a rider crashes or falls. With a lanyard attached to both their wrist and the bike, in the event of a rider falling the motor is stopped. Adjustable ride modes can also be set and saved with a dongle, preventing excitable racers from changing to more powerful riding mode before they’re ready for them!
 
BRAKES
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.
 
WHEELS
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.
 
BATTERY
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.
 
CHARGER
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.
