The E-XC is clutchless, which allows for the rear brake master cylinder to be mounted on the handlebar, making it easier to initiate a drift.
Everything from the large sprocket on the rear wheel, to the large boxy area under the seat, to the two knobs and four LEDs on the handlebar is built for efficiency.
This bike makes 78 lb-ft of torque, which might not seem like much compared to some of the other bikes on this list, but is more than the Ducati Panigale 959 makes.
Power delivery is smooth but quite obviously muted because of the preference for the economy. Sport mode kicks things up a notch, performance mode bumps power up even more, and overclock breaks all the horses loose.
A lot of its parts are sourced from mountain bikes, including its MX-inspired seat, the Manitou Dorado front fork, and the Burner RB-RCP rear shock.
The bike is powered by a 2000 watt rear-mounted drive motor. Three power levels (Eco, Tour, Sport) determine its aggressiveness (and range).
