Today OSET Bikes officially launched its new Motocross bike ? the MX-10. Although many have asked and expected OSET to dress? its Trials machines as motocross bikes and pretend it was suited for the task ? the company instead started with a fresh sheet of paper and designed a new machine from scratch.
The ground up design has seen the team analyse the ideal off-road geometry for children aged 4-7 and design components and systems to achieve optimum performance.
Ian Smith, founder and CEO of OSET Bikes, said: ?We knew what we wanted when we started the project and the team is confident the MX-10 delivers on every aspect ? we?re incredibly proud of the bike we?ve produced!?
The market today revolves mostly around a petrol starter machine that is a simple, drum braked, gasoline powered 50cc machine that has remained virtually unchanged since its introduction in 1981. With few alternatives, these bikes have sold in great numbers. The OSET MX-10 aims to provide a new and improved option!
The MX-10 features an adjustable seat height ? giving even the smallest riders more confidence as they can touch the ground. When lowering the bike, the geometry alters to provide more stability for raw beginners. The front forks, rear shock and brakes are all designed to suit the bike and young riders ? they?re lightweight and adjustable because one size does not fit all.
One of the biggest hurdles young riders have to overcome when riding a traditional petrol starter machine is the power delivery. With most of the power at the top of the rev range, many kids are simply too scared to give it a handful. Ian adds: ?The MX-10 resolves that issue. The power, throttle response and top speed can all be easily altered to suit the rider. The very youngest riders can build confidence and speed safely. The linear, electric power is easy for children to master and allows for parental control.
?And we?re not finished there! Electric power means no kick start ? which means no more running across a track to help get the bike restarted. It also means no hot exhaust, so no one is going to be scorched accidentally. And the weight means when they inevitably slide off, they can pick the bike up relatively easily and get started on their own.?
As practice locations become increasingly scarce, the virtually silent MX-10 opens up many more options than its petrol counterparts. It means more time on the bike, more skills and more fun!
And, to give the option of versatility, aftermarket wheels and tyres can transform this bike for Supermoto too!
Ian concluded: ?OSET?s intention is to never enter a market with a half-hearted machine. We want to build the best machine we can ? be it for trials, enduro, play riding or motocross. We want kids to have fun on motorcycles ? safely!?
