Electric Trials bike?

Anyone know of an electric trials bike out there yet? I see that Zero has an MX, but I am searching for a electric trials bike.

Thanks...

Aren't most electric bikes automatic? I know of one that has a standard shifter, etc but the name escapes me. I would think that an automatic would be a lot more hard to work on the tough sections of the course.

Then again, what do I know? I've never rode a trials bike, just watched vids.

Electric trials

Have a gander in the trials thread there's a few already being actively discussed, particularly for the kids like mecatecno. Can't recall the adults version but there's one I saw at a local comp that certainly covers teenagers sizes.

Most so far have been single-speed, no gearbox. The Brammo Empulse is a shifty. There'd be no need for shifting on an electric trials bike since you never go fast enough to go beyond the RPM range of an electric motor.

I've tried the GasGas TXT 4820ETA- really nice to ride, takes some time to get used to it. No clutch and no shifting, and you can twist the throttle both ways. (Engine braking and energy recovery)

Cheers!

Electric MTBs are a big deal in Germany with trials types sure to follow.
