Hello felllows. Im choosing a pocket bike/minibike/superpocketbike (not the size as real bikes) Finances are about 2000$ better lesser. Want to get good quality not Chinese *****. I found Polini 910 Carrera 6,2HP H20. Is that good? I want to start race that bike and sometimes go street. Maybe it's better to buy cheaper good quality frame and add engine, air filter or buy cheaper Pocket/super bike and tune it? I hear only NRC super pocket bikes but they are really big... Maybe you know something in size like X19? I mostly like Italian products. And what about cag? Is that good or not? Thanks

You wanna do alot of things....You need atleast 5 different bikes...Its kinda redundant taking something used to compete to use to joyride/hotrod around...Racebike engines have a life based on an hourly timestable.My Polini's gonna need to have all the frame screws that holds it together tapped to the next size up.I get more fun and enjoyability riding my modded cags over my Polini for some odd reason..............Good Luck

Polini 910 Carrena 6.2hp watercooled...............

I'm 5'11 and rode an elite 13 WRS, which is pretty much the tightest, smallest blata you can get. I liked it because I could use my body weight to push the bike into turns harder and faster than with the other euro frames. Check out the B1 Origami, they come in 110cc 4 spd, and you can be a 6 foot 4 monster and ride it comfortably.

Edit: Ied nab the GRC for sale on the Vendor Forum here, those bikes are VERY fast...

:eek::eek::eek: not everybody has 2k to spend on a pocket bike lol u can buy a couple of bikes of Craigslist and still have money to repair them
I guess my brother would like one. Prob im not from USA, I have to ship trough companies to Europe cuz no straight shipping.... 2k is maximum lesser money better, you know the safety gear etc.... I was thinking about GRC or X19 (moded) but they have been discontinued only used ones...

It almost is...Dont they come with 6.5" rims/tires and is considered a midi-moto...Myold blata2.5 is the smallest blata model on 4" rims and was called a mini-moto.............

The B1 immortals are nice bikes but a P I T A when finding bodyparts........





I dont think you are going to find a euro for 200 bucks...
If I told ya what i got my polini for youd probably hate me...LOLIt was uglier and was in bad-bad shape although it ran pretty strong...


My Polini 910 Carena 6.2hp watercooled bike is a mini-moto aswell.....Its got 5" rims/tires

yep gonna need multiple bikes in this case. Also you do know the x19 is made in China right???
Your not gonna get the best of both worlds no matter what bike you choose and how many ways you ask. If you get a good euro pocketbike and ride it on the street. Well i hope the streets you ride it on are really smooth,no bumps or holes. With no suspension i can't imagine on a bumpy road that would make for a good ride or a comfortable ride if it's a long one.
You know i think i found an answer to your delima. You need a scooter! You can build them to race and you can ride them on the street. Tons of tuning parts all day long plus you can ride it to the track. Race it then hop on it and ride home.

Maybe maybe... But I love superbikes. Now with dad we're talking about Metrakit and go race it to the scooter races (engine is still 50cc, I guess they will let) because why? In my country there are no Pocket Bike assosiations and only like 10 people have chinese pocket bikes and then try to sell them..... I was thinkin about scooter but idk, and thanks really for ideas. I'll watch our country used scooters. But Metrakit I think is better. Do you know what is the top speed and how much about new one cost? 2011 or 2012 model. Ty

EDIT: or what about Aprilia RS 50? Are they good for kids? I mean size like Mini GP one?

Lol I raced my friends BWIZ back when I had my elite 13, and he kept getting spanked. he had about 900 bucks of mods in that scooter too, hahahahaha.

Even raced him on the Montreal Gilles Villeneuve F1 Circuit once, since they leave it open all summer as a bike path, and there is no security. lol.

Edit: tell me what you payed for that polini, so I can go gouge my eyes out with a spoon.
