HUSQVARNA LAUNCH EE 1.20 ELECTRIC BIKE
Husqvarna has dropped the latest addition to the Husky family – the EE 1.20 2023 by STACYCTM, an electric balance bike designed for children up to 12 years old. Navigating the world of motorized minicycles can be challenging for novice riders. However, the EE 1.20 presents an exciting solution, facilitating a seamless transition for young enthusiasts into the realm of full-blown motocross machines. This innovative offering aims to simplify the learning curve and enhance the riding experience for junior riders across all age groups.
The all-new Husqvarna Motorcycles EE 1.20 by STACYCTM allows quick and easy mastery of a twist throttle. The previously introduced EE 1.12 and EE 1.16 already meet the challenge for the youngest learners. With the thrill and excitement of power delivery from a twist-action throttle, learning becomes fun. Skills grow fast and tentative first steps quickly lead to confidence in control. All on machines that channel the competition style of the best offroad competitors.
All of the skills necessary to ride a powered two-wheeler can be honed on the Husqvarna Motorcycles EE 1.20. Once the new rider can push, balance and coast with the power off, it is time to switch on the 36 V motor to work on throttle control and go feet-up on the tapered footrests.
The Low/Training power mode caps top speed at 16 km/h, and at 15 kg the EE 1.20 is easy to push and lift; provided young riders have an inseam of 60 cm or more, they will be able to get both feet on the ground. As confidence and control develop, two quicker power settings can be accessed, topping out at 32 km/h in the High/Advanced mode.
An all-aluminium TIG-welded frame marshals the output of the electric motor, a Manitou J-Unit Machete front fork with 80 mm of travel absorbs the bumps, while hydraulic brakes front and rear guarantee safe stopping. Innova pneumatic tyres on 20” wheels provide confident grip as young riders master their machine.
Husqvarna Motorcycles EE 1.20 by STACYCTM embodies everything that riding a powered two-wheeler should be – fun, exciting and stylish. This new model is the perfect bridge from the smaller EE 1.12 and EE 1.16 to the EE 3 and EE 5 accessible electric minicycles, the next step when junior riders have the confidence to test their newfound skills in competition.
