This post will be broken down in to three sections, to give you all the information you need to know. From general information every owner should know, then to mini scramblers reviews then to the kids super bike reviews.
What are pocket bikes?
Pocket bikes also known as mini motos are smaller versions of adult bikes. You can buy them with 43cc 47cc 49cc engines. And they come as a mini super bike or a mini scrambler. They must be ridden on private land & dirt bike tracks and not on public land.
How fast does a 50cc pocket bike go
The speed depends on which one you buy, and which engine it has. The water cooled engine ones are the fasted but they are made for racing. But the average speed for a kids mini moto is 20-30 MPH.
Are they safe to ride?
As with anything your child rides they can hurt their self, but the only way to stop that is to banned them from everything with wheels. The best way to keep them safe while riding, is to buy all the safety equipment. And to buy a pocket bike that has the most safety features.

Crossbike Cross Dirt Bike Pocketbike Orion
Another great seller amongst the pocket bikes within the UK. With a floor to seat height of 62cm, and 10-inch wheels. This one comes with a stronger metal full start, as the plastic ones usually have to replace.

MT4A 50cc 46cm Blue Orange Mini Moto Racing Bike
One of the smartest i have seen, is the mt4a 50cc, thats the reason why this has made it on to my list. Comes with performance racing tyres for better grip than the standard tyres.
With all bikes the top speed depends on the weight of the rider, but the average speed you should see is 20 to 30 mph.
Weighing only 25kg, you can easily put this in the back of any boot to get to your destination. Being only 46cm from floor to seat, no matter what size you are your more than likely to be big enough.
- 20-30 mph
- Throttle restrictor
- Performance can be upgraded
Super Motard 50cc Motorbike
The super motored 50cc is an unusual one, that i haven’t come across before. While doing my research i found that this one is really liked by a lot of people.
This is like a cross breed mini moto race bike and a scrambler version, so if you can decide with one you prefer theres always this option.
It is a bit bigger coming in at only 48cm, got to be more comfortable than the smaller versions.
- 2-stroke 49cc tuneable engine
- Front and back suspension
- Race exhaust
- back and front disk brakes
- 48 cm
