Would you like to develop your child's balance and coordination?

Has your toddler outgrown the tricycle, but is still too small for those 50cc dirtbikes?

Would you like to see them enjoying hours of fun in the great outdoors?!

This is the bike you've been waiting for!

The Thumpstar TSE 12TR Electric Balance Bike is suitable for children AGES 3 and UP. This bike has more safety controls than any other electric starter bike out there!

The box includes a set of REAL MOTORCYCLE FOOTPEGS (which you can easily attach when your child has learned some basic skill and balance), a charging cord which plugs into a port on the frame, high quality 5.2Ah battery for hours of fun*, and an owner's manual (which is not written in "Chinglish").

Hub Motor

Latest geared 250w hub motor. Smaller and more efficient, high torque but silent. This hub motor uses less power than the mid mount chain driver motors which is why the TSE12 and TSE16 can last as long as 6 hours.


Smooth power delivery designed for children. 3 speeds with another 3 racing speeds that can be adjusted at the controller unit.


Lithium battery designed and tested as longest lasting electric balanace bike battery on the market. 2 - 6 hours depending on conditions and speed settings.


Hi-tech yet simple controller which has many options including adding or removing kick mode for children learning to ride.


Heat Teated 6061 T6 Frame designed not only for beginners but also for the race track. The bikes feature a 65 degree rake, then same angle as a full motocross bike.

Brake Lever

Designed and tested for kids as young as 2 years old.


  • This bike includes Thumpstar's KICK START feature, for added safety, which prevents sudden, unexpected starts. (The rider must start the bike in motion or "push off" before the motor will activate.) As the rider gains experience and skill, the KICK START feature can be disabled by opening the bottom cover and unplugging the clearly labeled "KICK START" wire.
  • 3 Speed Switch on the bottom of the bike, which conveniently allows your child to start slow and increase speeds as they gain skill and experience.
  • Speed Limiter which can be disconnected by removing the bottom cover and disconnecting the easily identifiable "Speed Limiter" Wire. (Be sure to set the above mentioned Speed Switch on the bottom of the bike back to the SLOW setting until your child is ready for maximum performance!)
  • Torque Switch which can be disconnected by removing the bottom cover and disconnecting the easily identifiable "Torque Switch" wire for maximum starting and hill climbing power.
  • Aluminum Frame with Steel Forks make this bike lightweight, but still very durable.
  • Adjustable seat (15" to 18") to allow the perfect fit (your child should be able to place both feet on the ground simultaneously while seated).
  • 6 speed settings (3 in "Limited" mode plus 3 more in "full power" mode).
