Electric off-road powersports company, Volcon Inc (NASDAQ:) announced Thursday that it has launched the new Grunt EVO and the Runt LT.

The EVO is the latest edition of the company’s original all-electric off-road motorcycle using Volcon’s Exo-Arch frame and fat-tired design, now affectionately called the Grunt Founders Edition (FE) internally.

The EVO is a leaner, lighter and quieter evolution of the company’s original off-road moto. Contributing to EVO’s stealth is the use of the Gates Carbon Belt Drive system, making it ideal for hunters or tending land with livestock. The Gates Carbon Drive (Moto X9) requires less maintenance and is more energy efficient than traditional chains leading to improved range. This latest edition will have the same torqued, 60V power system and the undeniably valuable IP67 rating, making it water, sand, and snow proof. Another key EVO development is the overall weight reduction of nearly 20 percent.

The Volcon Runt LT features many of the same benefits of the EVO, while also having some unique qualities of its own. The Runt’s low 27-inch seat height makes it a great option for the smaller stature or as fantastic pit bikes. Unlike its predecessor the Grunt, the Runt LT features an in-wheel hub motor, giving riders higher torque and increased control of the vehicle.

The Runt LT reaches speeds of up to 35 mph and 25 miles of range on a single battery charge. Inverted forks, pivotless adjustable rear shock, and hydraulic disc brakes give it one of the smoothest rides of any off-road motorcycle in its class.

“Nothing compares to the fun of bonding with your family in the great outdoors, so to offer a line of products that make that achievable for all kinds of families, regardless of their level of motorcycle experience, is fulfilling, personally and professionally,” said Melissa Coffey, Volcon Vice President of Global Revenue and Business Development. “Giving everyone in the family an option for low maintenance, easy-to-ride, fun is the catalyst for empowering adventure, especially with financing options through our incredible dealership network,” Coffey continued.

Volcon is scheduled to ship the EVO and Runt LT to dealers in Q2 of this year. Customers can start creating builds of both motorcycles on Volcon.com starting March 30, 2023.

Shares of VLCN are up 4.90% in mid-day trading on Thursday.
