Electric motorcycles have been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, especially in urban environments. Interestingly, however, there has been a growing number of electric two-wheelers aimed at the off-road sector. In fact, it makes perfect sense, as there has been an increasing amount of criticism of off-road motor sports due to noise and fire hazards. Electric off-road models virtually eliminate all of these problems.
What’s more, the high power and torque of electric motors have proven to be a useful tool off-road. Take, for example, the Strix, a high-powered electric off-road bike designed primarily for military use. The powerful electric bike has a torque of 1050 Newton-meters and 70 kilowatts. Best of all, it weighs just 118 kg. The motor’s power can be adjusted via various driving modes and a smartphone app that allows you to fine-tune the settings to your liking

According to Strix, the bike has been tested by the US Navy, NATO forces and the Estonian army. Silence, however, is not the only feature of the Strix. The bike also operates at a much lower temperature than internal combustion bikes, so it does a good job of hiding from heat detection and infrared equipment
As far as the battery is concerned, the Strix has a 6.3 kilowatt-hour battery that allows for incredibly fast charging. More specifically, the company claims that the battery can be charged from 20% to 80% in just 10 minutes. The motor and battery are installed in a chrome-plated steel frame that ensures a rigid but lightweight construction.
