Lizcat GmbH is a Swiss-based startup company that created an electric conversion kit to transform traditional ICE motocross motorbikes into 100% electric models.
The company owned by Sascha Brodbeck, Daniela Bottega and Leandro Cabarubia based in Winterthur ZH, provides a conversion service that permits one to convert their petrol engine vehicle to electric with a personal chassis setting. Delivery times of the kits are typically 6 to 8 weeks. All components of the kit come pre-assembled. The conversion process is straightforward and can usually be completed within half a day – a conversion video is available to guide you through all the steps necessary for successful installation. Should you desire, Lizcat also offers a conversion service for an additional fee.
Lizcat now offers three electric motocross kits; the first is the “Leo”, with 25 hp gon the rear wheel and a 72 V/2.3 kWh battery (approximately 15 minutes of ride time on the cross slope). The second kit is the “Puma”; this one has 38 hp and a 72 V/4.1 kWh battery, along with 70 Nm torque on the motor (the equivalent of a 450cc motorcycle). Depending on the rider, you can get between 25-40 minutes of racing speed out of it. For extreme use, it can be fitted with an extra fan system for added cooling.
The “Cheetah” with 52 hp and a 72 V/5.0 kWh battery is equipped with liquid cooling. Apparently, according to Sascha Brodbeck, it’s rather intense – he can drive faster lap times with the Puma. All three models have five power maps accessible through a 3.5 inch display that can be selected.
Sascha Brodbeck – Lizcat: “Motocross bikes are a complex product, having been tested and refined for miles and hours to achieve the designs we have today. All of the important elements such as geometry, chassis, handling, and suspension must remain intact. We will not be creating a new bike from the ground up; instead, we’ll focus on the drivetrain with the goal of eliminating issues that diminish performance in the sport.”
