We’ve seen a lot of new and exciting electric motorcycles hit the scene in recent years, and while a lot of them focus on commuting and utility-focused applications, a good number of them focus on preserving the thrill and excitement of the two-wheeled lifestyle. A lot of these are off-road specific models, such as those from French company Electric Motion.

We’ve talked about Electric Motion a couple of times in the past, and the brand has made quite a lot of progress, particularly in the off-road motorsports scene. Particularly, it has competed in the FIM E-Xplorer, achieving notable podium finishes and even a championship title. Back in 2022, it was also the first electric manufacturer to compete in the Scottish Six Days Trial. This success accompanied the brand’s expansion, as it’s expected to open its new factory in Southern France in January of 2024.
