Run time depends on many factors, but as a rule of thumb we say between 1 and 2 hours. However, for ‘Trials’ riding by beginners set to half speed, we’ve had a single set of batteries last for 4+ hours of stop-start riding.
For normal Trials riding in the back yard or at an event, perhaps 2-3 hours. It’s difficult to be precise, as the batteries generally outlast the kids! For full-throttle Motocross riding without stopping, run time comes down to 30-40 minutes.
There are many factors that determine run time; the weight of the rider, the terrain, and type of riding. We have purposely designed these machines around inexpensive sealed lead acid batteries that can be switched out in less than a minute. Having a backup set makes perfect sense in many riding situations.
