Final Thoughts

I would say this is a great mid-level electric motocross bike. It has a weight limit of 175, which means there are some older riders that could use it. However, it may be too small for those riders that are really tall. This runs off of a combination of three batteries, so you have a longer ride time and the power you need to get up hills. How fast and well depends on size of rider that is operating it.

You will not be disappointed in this bike, it is a great bike for those who just want something to ride and do some rough terrain with. Just don’t expect to be doing any competitions with it. It is not made for that. You will get plenty of enjoyment out of this bike though for quite some time with minimal upkeep and that alone is worth it.
