A helmet and safety suit should be worn an at all times when riding a mini dirt bike, and riding without these is dangerous and fool hardy. As long as you pay close attention to safety of rider, though, mini dirt bikes are incredibly good fun and a really good way to get adrenalin pumping.
How much do mini dirt bikes cost?
The bike itself is comparatively inexpensive, when compared to a full size dirt bike, and you can expect to pay anywhere between £150 and £300 (roughly $300 and $600) depending on make, model and specifications you require. You also need to buy a strong helmet and protective clothing if you want to take this seriously and safely. These can vary dramatically in price dependant on whether you want outfit to match bike, whether you buy a well-known brand and whether you buy new or used.
Obviously you have to pay for petrol but this is next to nothing because a two-stroke 47cc engine will literally run for miles on a litre of petrol. Apart from that, repairs or new parts are really only other price you need to take into consideration and again, these are relatively inexpensive.
