Super Cool Mini Electric Pocket Rocket Bikes

Electric Pocket Bikes

Pocket bikes were first popularized in Europe as specialized racing motorbikes. Traffic laws vary by state, but for the most part minibikes are illegal for use on public roadways since most do not carry the necessary equipment (and often size requirements) to be street legal.  The typical rider of these bikes are 13 year old boys who are the right size and mental maturity for the toy.  In the past recent years, gas-powered pocket bikes have become so popular that organized competition called Mini GP Racing are springing up all over the country.

Razor Mini Electric Pocket Rocket

The most popular mini electric pocket rocket bike is made by Razor.  In fact, their mini bike is called the Pocket Rocket.  Basically, it is a small version of a real street bike, in basic general looks and design.  This electric bike can reach the speeds of 15 mph and carries up to 170 pounds.  It can operate up to 30 minutes in a single charge.  Since it is driven by an electric motor, the Razor Mini Electric Pocket Rocket is quiet.  A lot quieter than their gas-powered counterpart.  Much slower, too, but that's beside the point.
