Slovenian armed forces acquire STRiX world’s hardest enduro e-motorbike


After rigorous testing of the prototype by numerous NATO EU member armies and the US Navy, the Slovenian Armed Forces signed a contract to acquire the hardest enduro e-motorbikes available. The aim is to fully integrate STRiX e-motorbikes in the operative use of the Slovenian Armed Forces, after successfully completing an additional in-depth verification period. The e-motorbikes were specifically designed and developed for military applications, surpassing current heavy-duty combustion versions in every aspect. The design and production of STRiX e-motorbikes are carried out by RTC d.o.o. with almost 25 years of engineering experience in the automotive industry.

The brutal STRiX e-motorbike character is defined by RTC’s proprietary engine and powertrain technology, delivering an exceptional 95hp and 1,050 Nm of torque, offering a top speed of 130 km/h. STRiX’s performance levels are 35% better than any 450 CC four-stroke hard enduro bikes. It features a 6.3 kWh exchangeable battery with CCS fast charging capability. Despite its brutal power and performance, STRiX leaves almost no sound or thermal footprint.

The STRiX riding app enables various riding modes, including “Training” mode, where trainers can monitor the driver's skills and gradually increase the motorbike's capabilities. Its “Stealth” mode optimizes power, sound, and thermal footprint for special military operations. “Sport+” mode enables 100% capacity of all parameters. Unlike traditional internal combustion engines, the STRiX e-motorbike can be laid down on its side or cross deep waters with automatic adjustments of its electrical components. The military STRiX version is equipped with customized gun and equipment holders and special lights. The brutal power of STRiX enables the installation of a snow track system for extreme winter conditions.

Upon the most rigorous testing in May and October 2022, the Slovenian Armed Forces conducted successful testing of STRiX hard-enduro e-motorbike leading the Ministry of Defense to sign a contract for the purchase. By acquiring the STRiX e-motorbikes and complementary snow track systems, the Slovenian Armed Forces are enhancing military capabilities with NATO quality standard equipment that empowers soldiers to successfully execute tactical tasks in the most challenging conditions. After successfully completing an additional in-depth verification period, the intent is to fully integrate STRiX e-motorbikes into the operative use of the Slovenian Armed Forces. STRiX military hard-enduros and belonging snow track systems are specially intended for use by reconnaissance units, snipers, special forces and other specialized forces.

With an official order from a NATO member army, STRiX now also has a NATO Stock Number (NSN). Sašo Emin, CEO of STRiX eMotors, expressed his pride in supplying the Slovenian Armed Forces with such advanced and reliable equipment: "We are honored to have been selected by the Slovenian Armed Forces to provide state-of-the-art STRiX e-motorcycles.
