Gas pocket bikes are literally a 10:1 scaled motorcycle. They weigh between 45 to 90 pounds and allow the driver to sit two feet off the ground. They are some of the more powerful mini pocket bikes on the market and are perfect for those who are looking to race pocket bikes.
They are very small and many will mistake them for a toy for their children – but this is one of the few mini pocket bikes you should reconsider for yourself. If these gas bikes are not driven and handled properly you will have a disaster on your hands.
Because they are more often used for racing then pure pleasure they have been designed to reach speeds of up to 45 miles per hour and some can go much faster then this. When considering purchase for one you must remember that they are dangerous to use on sidewalks, street, bicycle lanes, and highways. It is dangerous for them to be ridden on anything that is populated with people walking or larger motor vehicles driving. Many states prohibit mini pocket bikes from being used on streets according to their specific pocket bike laws.
Another reason why you should not consider these for your children – but should focus on them as racing bikes is because most do not come standard with the normal safety features that can be found on electric pocket bikes or even on the full scale motorcycles. This means that they do not come with mirrors, brake lights, turn signals, or any type of reflectors.
