Off road all day.
Dirt bikes kind of look like supermoto’s, but then even lighter and narrower. And of course they stand on different rims and tires. You use dirt bikes to ride off road, for motocross or to ride enduro (if the bike has some lighting). Dirt bikes are one of the first types of motorcycles kids can come in contact with. You can already ride a tiny dirt bike on a cross track from the age of 5. You have to be 18 and in possession of a motorcycle riding license to ride a motorcycle on the road. Just like supermoto’s, dirt bikes are real fun. Ripping on the cross track, through the fields or through the forest. Nothing is too crazy for dirt bikes.
As you can see below, many dirt bikes are quite high when it comes to seat height. The bikes do have a really narrow and skinny design though, which ensures that your feet reach the ground sooner. So that high seat height doesn’t give you the full picture. And because they are so light of weight, they most often are quite easy to handle. Our advice if you’re interested in a dirt bike; go on lots of test rides. In the end, that’s the best thing you can do to experience the true essence of a particular dirt bike.
