This is a fully functional gas powered mini pit bike that takes straight gas (no mixing with oil), is relatively quiet, and you never have to worry about a dead battery. I recommend it for younger riders as the top speeds on four stroke 40cc bikes like this one don't exceed 25 mph.
The bike measures about 2 feet tall, with a seat height of 24 inches. It has 9 inch wheels. Despite the small size, adults even 6 feet tall can and do ride them, just check out some pocket bike Youtube videos to see them in action.
If you are a parent trying to decide between getting an electric or a gas model, don't let the fact that this is gas scare you! Electric pocket bikes that are sold right now frequently have battery problems because they use really cheap, old technology lead batteries. They are susceptible to premature battery failure if you do something as simple as don't charge it immediately after riding. The lead batteries also make the electric bikes very heavy, so heavy that an adult man has a hard time lifting it.
This pocket bike on the other hand is quite light, under 50 pounds. It comes with oil already in the engine, so all you need to do is check the dip stick, add straight gas into the tank, tighten up the handlebars, pull start and ride.
There is no smoke and it is not very loud because it takes straight gas (not a two stroke). Please note, if you are looking to go up hills, or are a heavy rider (over 180 lbs), then you may find any 40cc four-stroke bike too slow for your liking, so this bike is recommended for younger riders that will not be going too fast.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

If there are any defects or problems discovered during the first month, please contact us and we will replace the defective parts for you free of charge. The bike is fairly simple to work on, but if you are not comforable with a screw driver or an allen wrench, we ask that you locate a mechanically savvy person that can assist. We will provide you the part(s) and the advice, but we do not cover 'labor' - so we expect you to work on the bike, with our help of course, if it becomes necessary.
We will happily provide support free of charge as long as you own the bike, and you will be able to purchase all parts directly from us. The parts for this bike are also commonly available on eBay and Amazon, but you are always welcome to contact us for help as we know these bikes inside and out.
For example: pull start ropes, inner tubes, foot pegs, body plastics, chain can all be replaced free of charge, but you will have to put it on.
If you want to take it to a 'professional', we recommend that you take the bike to a local lawnmower shop because the engine in the bike is a string-trimmer type engine that they will be very familiar with and have the parts for (carburetors, clutches, pull starts, etc).
The bike ships in a large box. We do the best we can to get it delivered to you without any damage. Sometimes, a plastic panel can get scratched or even cracked during shipping. If this happens, please contact us, and we will mail you a replacement part free of charge. We have all parts in stock for this bike.
Because shipping for the whole bike is expensive, we don't normally take returns. Instead, we send you the parts and help you replace them - we'll be happy to help you over email or phone, however you prefer.
