If you are in the market to buy a new mini bike you will have two options available to you, which are mini gas motorcycles and electric pocket bikes. As I am sure you have already guessed gas bikes are powered by gas and electric pocket bikes run off a battery.
Both types of mini bike offer a lot of fun and entertainment, as well as some thrills and spills (hopefully not too many) however mini gas motorcycles have the upper hand and are a better purchase than electric pocket bikes. The reasons why I say this? Well carry on reading for the some of the main advantages in owning the mini moto powered by gas.
You only need to stop riding mini gas motorcycles when they need filling up with gas, a process that takes a few minutes. Electric pocket bikes run for thirty to forty five minutes on a single charge and will then need recharging for four to five hours, meaning you have to stop riding.
Mini gas motorcycles are more powerful, and hence faster, than electric pocket bikes. What’s more is you can buy loads of trick parts and engine modifications to make your mini gas motorcycle even more powerful and even faster. How cool is that?
Sine mini gas motorcycles have more powerful engines they can be used by heavier riders and still have the ability to go fast enough to be fun. Electric pocket bikes will tend to struggle with heavier riders.
Since mini gas motorcycles are more powerful than electric pocket bikes they are more versatile and can be used in more hilly terrain, and on rougher surfaces. You can easily use mini gas motorcycles where you would struggle with electric pocket bikes.
When mini gas motorcycles break down and require repairing there are plenty of places you can go to get spare parts and accessories, such as eBay, Amazon and many specialist online stores. Finding parts for electric pocket bikes is more difficult.
There are loads of mini gas motorcycle racing clubs you can join. These clubs allow you to race against other riders in a safe and controlled environment. These clubs are for mini gas motorcycles only and will not accept any electric pocket bikes. There are far fewer electric pocket bike racing clubs and finding one in your area may prove to be a challenge.
The above are only a handful of the advantages in owning mini gas motorcycles, and there are plenty more besides. So, if you are thinking of buying a mini bike or mini moto head straight for mini gas motorcycles and don’t even bother with an electric pocket bike.
