How do you turn Honda’s cute little 125cc Grom motorcycle into a race bike? By dumping the engine and swapping in an electric motor and batteries, of course! Check out the aptly-named Electrobraap channel as they take an electric Honda Grom for its maiden ride.

In place of the standard 125cc Honda engine, the Grom was gifted a power train from an Alta Motors Redshift electric motorcycle. Alta was a popular California-based electric dirt bike company that tragically shuttered operations last year amid financial difficulties.

The Alta Redshift’s motor, controller and batteries had to be modified to integrate into the Honda Grom, including custom fabrication for the unique sprocket splines at the motor.

Notice the giant sprocket on the rear wheel as well, which could almost double as a run-flat! While this was just the maiden run, the team is already looking at a larger rear tire to give more room on left turns and allow the bike to scrape peg before chain.
