Modified mini dirtbikes, same height as a 50cc bike, and completely different about everything else. Modified mini's have their 2hp engines replaced with 125cc engines making much more power.

Is the entire mini motorcycle thing just a craze? A trend? Or is it really the next "big" thing?

McGrath and Pastrana are racing mini bikes...when was it that people started ditching their full sized bike for these little 50cc bikes?

A typical 50cc Honda dirbike, stock, will cost about $1300...but then I see heavily modified mini racebikes going from $6,000 on up to $10,000+

The AMA even sanctoins the Las Vegas Mini Moto SX.

So are these mini motorcycles a novelty or for real?

Being 6'2" tall, I consider the current crop of sport bikes to be mini bikes. They just keep shrinking them and shrinking them. Hope my "full size" 12r never dies.......

I would ride one! I'm only 5'9" 160lbs. so I'm pretty sure I could pull it off. "A man down needs fear no fall"~John Bunyan 1628-1688
