Forget its tiny stature, the electric pocket bike is big in performance and the craze is catching on in the States and around the world.
Already popular in Asia and Europe, miniature versions of speed bikes might be smaller than their full scale counterparts on the market but don’t be fooled; these pocket bikes have all the features to make them super-fast and they pack one heck of a punch, at a fraction of the cost, making them a popular choice for adults to buy for their little ones.
Pocket bike racing is one of the fastest growing motor sports in the country but it’s not only these little pocket rockets taking the bike scene by storm; super pocket bikes, electric scooters and quad bikes and even mountain bikes are growing with more and more people using them for recreation, sports and effective modes of transport.
What is a pocket bike you ask? Well, quite simply they are designed as per their bigger counterparts, from the design and style through to the features, just on a smaller scale.
Sometimes referred to as mini motorbikes, their size and power put them in a class of their own but still very much in line with racing bikes.
Going beyond their looks, electric pocket bikes are built for racing and they can reach speeds of up to 32 miles per hour, with some going as fast as 50 miles.
If you are thinking about getting one of these little beasts you will need to know what to look for from standard specs and features to performance and any limitations.
A lot of pocket bikes have a 47cc two stoke or 40cc four stroke engine; they’re lightweight, durable and built for performance.
Most come with front and back disc brakes and are made for super-fast acceleration. What some people make the mistake of is thinking because they’re pocket sized they’re suitable for smaller kids and even toddlers, but with possible speeds of 50 miles p/h they’re definitely not for beginners or little ones that can’t control what is essentially a machine built for speed.
Electric pocket bikes are a huge amount of fun but it’s important to remember children should only ride with an adult supervising and with all the necessary safety gear.
As cute as they are, they’re pretty powerful and serious injuries can be incurred if they’re not treated with the respect they deserve.
