Mini motorcycles provide entertainment for everyone. They are smaller sized, less expensive, and not as dangerous as a dirt bike and can be used for racing in a vacant parking lot or part of an outdoor activity at your next backyard get together. They are great training tools in motorcycle skills for young people and give the chance to teach your child proper safety techniques before they are too old to obey. Most models will cost a few hundred dollars, but it is possible to find a mini motorcycle for 100 dollars. If you can not afford to buy one, having the right strategy will help you find a bike that will not leave your wallet empty.
Prior to shopping, you must list all of the features that you want. Some may greatly affect the bike's cost. One debate among riders is whether to purchase a gas powered or electric mini motorcycle. If price is an issue, battery power is the best option. Most batteries are rechargeable so you will only have to buy a limited number over the life of the motorcycle. Also electric motorcycles are usually less expensive. Gas powered bikes have more power and a more real motorcycle experience which can add safety.
When you decide what you are looking for, you can begin to search through different models. For under 100 dollars, the Razor Pocket Rocket can be purchased used rather than new. It is popular among children and is a great entry level mini motorcycle. The BAJA Doodle Bug gives more power and is targeted to teens and adults. It is considerably more money, but comes with disc brakes and off road tires.
The internet may feature the best prices for mini motorcycles. For a cheap price, consider sites like eBay for used bikes or old fashioned newspapers for ads that list such items.
