Great starter/trainer for 'lil ones
Regardless of what it says on the box for the lawyers ("ages 12+"), this bike is for FIRST TIME riders ages 4-6 IMHO. The dimensions, power, controls, seat height, etc all lend themselves to ages 4-6. Even the number plate... says, "5". Co-inky-dink?
My son (5yrs) zips around on this thing, standing, sitting, cornering, pavement, grass, etc. It FITS him.
My daughter, (8) can barely ride it because her longer legs are folded up, and with her size it takes off so slow in grass that it's hard to balance/wobbly. She likes it, but it's clearly too short/slow for her height/weight. Ages 7-12 should step up to a larger version like the MX500 or even MX650. Trust me, not the lawyers.
I'm an experienced motorcyclist, non-freak, with a whole gaggle of kids, so it's good information... :)
It runs for a solid 30-40 minutes continuously, as advertised.
Cons: #1) Expected for the price point, but there's no shocks MX350/400; it's rigid frame. "It's bouncy", says my son. Does he care?- No, and nor do I. Just be aware that there's no shocks, but IMO it doesn't really matter at the speeds this reaches. No one is going to be tackling technical areas where shocks are paramount on this lil' nugget of a bike. #2) The brake lever (bar-mounted rear only) is darn hard to grab for little hands. Big deal?... Ehh. #3) Has rear-brake only, and this can lock up and skid if applied forcefully. These are all in line with the price-point, size, and intended "put-put" usage IMO.
Major Pro: It's electric, so your city kid can ride this daily in front of the house or at the park- no having to drag a gas bike out to the country so you can ride "once in a while", nor listen to the constant requests..."when can we go riding, Dad?"... "when can we go?"... "how about today, Dad?"...gaaaaahaa! Electric= open your garage door... and the kid is riding.
You're welcome, Razor. That last sentence probably just sold 50,000 units for yas. Send me a check.
