We were accused the other day of not having enough “dirt” related stories, so we thought we’d correct that by having both our Favorite bike and WTF bike be about dirt. Thus, this 2015 race ready mini moto.
Since so many of the riders we’ve profiled started out riding dirt bikes, and that trend doesn’t seem to be letting up, we wanted to see what kinds of small bikes were out there. At just over $4000 MSRP, this is probably not the cheapest mini out there, but it’s also not the most expensive. (You’ll spend another $1500 for a similar size KTM.)
You’ll get good ground clearance (13 inches), decent fuel capacity (1.3 gallons) and a seat height (33 inches) that might stretch a young riders dismounting ability, but didn’t we say this was a dirt bike?
