AUSTIN, TEXAS | February 4, 2021 – Volcon ePowersports, the first all-electric, off-road powersports company, today introduced a new two-wheeled, kid-friendly model, named the “Runt.” The Volcon Runt – a smaller version of the company’s first electrified off-road model, the Grunt – allows families to join together in off-road powersports adventures, creating lasting memories and setting the groundwork for a lifetime of off-road fun, all the while instilling confidence in new riders and their parents.
Beginning today, the Runt can be pre-ordered by clicking here.
The Runt is an all-electric, two-wheeled mini bike that’s capable of exploring the outdoors in all-terrains. In addition to three riding modes, allowing a customized experience based on the young riders’ abilities, the Runt is equipped with app-driven geo-fencing controls, remote monitoring, performance limiters and tip-over notifications, giving parents peace of mind when their kids are riding. Accessory Runt seats and handlebars with different heights allow the bike to grow with the child.
The Runt is capable of a 35-mile range, with recharging possible in only two hours with any household outlet. Pricing will start at $2,995 (MSRP).
“With the addition of the Runt, the entire family can experience off-road powersports adventures through Volcon’s two and four-wheeled models,” said Andrew Leisner, Chief Executive Officer of Volcon Inc. “The no-clutch, single-speed, electric powertrain is easier for young riders to learn and the new app-based controls will give parents the ability to monitor their children and regulate the power of the motorcycle. The Runt paired with our Grunt will bring new families into the freedom and fun that off-road powersports provides.”
The Volcon Runt is available for pre-order now, with deliveries beginning Spring 2021. The full-size model, the Grunt, will also be delivered to customers beginning in Spring. Four-wheeled Stag and Beast models will follow in late 2021 into 2022. Specifications and technology details will be communicated in the near future.

Based in Austin, Texas, Volcon joins many major electric vehicle manufacturers, such as Tesla, Ayro and Hyliion in what is becoming the electric vehicle capital of the world.
