The Origin Of Pocketbikes
by: Steve Robinson
The concept of pocket bikes also known as mini bikes, mini motos, or mini
motorcycles) began years ago in Japan, a country known for miniaturizing
full-scale products. As crude mockups of the first pocket bikes were developed
and ridden, a brand new trend and following developed. As the sport spread into
Europe, Italian manufacturer Polini began research and development into
producing high quality racing Minimoto bikes. Throughout the years, the
combination of Japanese innovation and Italian craftsmanship has produced ultra
high performance pocket bikes.
Some of today's top motorcycle racers got their start in the sport of pocket
bike racing. Champion riders started in this smaller scale sport and eventually
dominated all pocket bike racing events throughout the world.. Until recently,
quality pocket bikes were largely out of reach and unavailable to the casual
rider. Prices of pocket bikes reached upwards of $4000.
These astronomical costs were mainly due to research and development costs to
provide optimum frame geometry, motor configurations and dimensions. Today's
manufacturers are able to use the information pioneered by these Italian and
Japanese companies and develop pocket bikes that are essentially configured the
same way including motor setup, frame geometry, braking systems, etc. Because
these upfront costs were avoided, prices of these high quality pocket bikes are
much less expensive today.
