110cc Pocket Bikes
March 30, 2006
A 110cc pocket bike is a miniature motorcycle that is becoming increasingly popular. There are even Pocket Bike races held world wide now, with some of the pros taking home thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. 110cc pocket bikes look like they were built for kids, they are typically 38 to 47 inches long and weigh about 50 pounds, but don't let the small size fool you. The 110cc pocket bikes are specifically built for adult drivers.
The 110cc bikes are made in Italy, and can reach speeds of up to 75 miles per hour. The 110cc pocket bikes have a 30 inch wheelbase, which in layman's terms means that you are barely inches from the ground. This definitely adds an adrenaline rush when it comes to high speed turns! Due to their miniature size, riding a pocket bike offers certain thrills that cannot be obtained on a regular motorcycle.
Pocket bike racing is also the most affordable motor sport in existence today, which is no small part why it is also one of the fastest growing. This draws participants from all over the world, offering them the ability to get in on motor sports, when they might not be able to otherwise. Make no mistakes about it, though, riding a pocket bike isn't like riding a regular motorcycle, even though the concept of balancing on two wheels at high speed is the same. Due to its small size, riding a pocket bike requires more balance, self control, agility, and faster reaction times. The adrenaline rush is a major reason many beginning participants become hooked and life-long fans.
Pocket bikes can be suitable for children over the age of nine, as long as they are very carefully supervised. The bikes were designed for adults, and so are set to support up to 300 pounds of weight. 110cc pocket bikes are not designed or intended for street use, these are bikes made for racing on tracks. Protective gear should be worn by both kids and adults at all times. This includes, but is not limited to, helmet, gloves, knee and elbow pads, and leather clothes in case of an accident. While they may look like toys, the 110cc pocket bikes were designed for extreme motor racing, and need to be treated with the same respect accordingly.
