All i know is that its smaller than a 125 but bigger than a 50... they are fun just to fool around on and not get to hurt if you crash.

kinda like a mini bike of sorts. got their name as they're used to run around the pits of motocross events and such.

I used to help my dad haul fuel to Dirt track car/truck races and a bunch of guys used them to get around. much faster than walking!

We have "pit bike" races there a good time! Bikes under 125cc
think big guy little bike. It stemed from guys riding little bikes around the pits at race tracks, then they started racing them
I used to have a 1972 honda z50 for a pit bike while I drag raced but it caught on fire unfortunatly lol
THis is my buddies helmet cam from the last one we had

Most of this is actually inaccurate... Pit bikes started out as 50cc bikes for mx racers to travel on in the pits. But naturally competition ensued, so they got bigger, badder, faster. In the following years "pit bikes" were built up little bikes. But more recently, people have gone more extreme with them. Now "pit bike" Is anything on a 50cc-110cc frame. People have started producing there bikes with 450cc engines, on a 110cc chassis, meaning it is still a pit bike.

I've wanted a pit bike for awhile. Small frame bikes, usually with modifications to fit full size adults.

Normal 50cc


Typical looking Pit Bike


Many even have slick motard tires for asphalt riding.
