DirtFirst Racing Offers A Competitive Electric Motocross Race Bike- The 2023 KTM Freeride Supermini

DirtFirst Racing and Hollywood Movie Bikes have teamed up to offer the first race ready Supermini Electric motocross bike. Aimed at 12-16 year old Mini MX racers, this ground-breaking bike starts as a production KTM machine that is then modified to the specifications of the Team’s race-winning bikes. The Freeride EXC is a true KTM product that has been available to the public for almost ten years, until recently only in European markets. This bike has the rock solid reliability and worldwide parts network you would expect from any KTM product. This same chassis has been the basis of not only the Freeride EXC, but also the Freeride 250cc and 350cc gas-powered models.

Over the last two years, DirtFirst Racing has race-tested and developed the production KTM Freeride EXC into a bike capable of competing head to head with Supermini-class gas bikes in AMA competition. The Supermini classes are traditionally the final step before racers graduate to full size race bikes, and the Freeride Supermini begins to fill the gap between the smaller KTM SX5E and the full size electric race bikes that we know are on the horizon.

Team DirtFirst riders Rocco Morse and Tommy Luera have competed in MX, GP, and desert races throughout Southern California, helping the Team gain the valuable real-time race data that the major electric motorcycle manufacturers have yet to openly pursue. That’s right, we have been at the track working on suspension, battery swaps, quick charging, gearing, basically all aspects of racing electric bikes in real-world situations.

DirtFirst Racing has stocked their inventory to supply a limited run of these unique machines. These bikes have the high-quality components and cutting-edge technology that only a private race team operation can provide.

Many electric bike manufacturers have visions of their bikes winning races, but DirtFirst Racing has actually done it. Get a head start on the coming Electric Revolution with the only competitive Mini MX racing bike currently available.
