    Does anyone know how the nm torque values advertised by EM are calculated? Is that 600nm advertised at the output shaft that the countershaft sprocket is connected to or calculated at the rear wheel?

    I believe rear wheel.
    Since the larger sprocket models have more torque.

    I am not sure where that is calculated, I just know my 2018 Escape had I think 400 NM and that was enough power to take me where ever I pointed the bike, whether I stayed on the bike or not.
    I also think the power output is determined by the set up in the controller.

    From there web site,
    MOTOR AND CONTROLLER
    The vintage marks a huge evolution in engine / controller torque performance.

    Better feeling, more inertia, we managed to improve control and sensitivity at low revs as well as gain power and explosiveness at mid and high revs.

    The sensations are increased tenfold and the power of your Escape "R" has no limit.

    Mahalo for the info on how Nm is calculated. Agree on the power as I had a chance to demo a 2020 escape which I think was set at 450Nm and had more than enough power to haul my 200lbs around the demo trail.

    Well, that was a surprise, and quick!

    I got a pm on Wednesday. Ms.EM left with new owner Saturday morning. She looked good & had a box of cool spares. I really enjoyed poaching the local hiking trails at night, but she was not quite the trials bike for competition I was hoping for.

    Good luck everyone with your new EMs. I'm really interested in hearing how the clutched models are doing in competition. Please keep us posted.

    Just saw that EM is planning on a street legal version of the Escape for the US for 2021. Plus an Escape Lite (smaller battery, perhaps the same as the trials only models?) for the budget conscious.

    I talked to the importer, yes the plan is for a USA ‘street legal’ Escape. It is in process now. Not that many things to do, just has to have a few things changed to meet Federal standards and of course go through the approval process. Maybe by next summer?
    Some states it is easy to plate one now- but that all depends on where you live. (Washington state is easy, just has to meet the WA standards- not hard to do)

    Where did you purchase it?

    Would you mind telling us the price?

    I’m considering getting a 2nd e-dirt bike and the EM Escape sounds interesting.

    I got it from StrangerCreek Moto in Eastern Washington. I’ve gotten bikes from him before, and he was the only dealer around when I ordered.
    I understand Franks (greater Seattle area) is selling now- and the importer is trying to have buyers get from the closest dealer.
    You can pre-order right from the website.

    If you are interested in a new 2020 he has right now, give StrangerCreekMoto a call. Tell him I sent him.

    I can pass on email to him if you PM yours and really interested.

    Thanks for the info and thanks for the offer to contact StrangerCreekMoto. I'm not ready to pull the trigger just yet, but appreciate it.

    I emailed Frank and he said EM's will be arriving in early November and provided me a link to the models and pricing. Note, I believe the $750 figure is a pre-order number, the actual prices are shown when you click on the models, price range is $8,799 - 10,799:

    They look really sweet, I just wish they had a model that was more of a typical enduro/dirt bike vs the trials/enduro hybrids.
