Motain bike

Anyone seen these? I thought these looked like a lot of fun. Kinda expensive and hard to get, but a neat design:

Kind of reminds me of a trials bike but with a seat. I can't see it taking the abuse a dirt bike will over time but I like the concept!

Yeah I agree, its no dirtbike, but would be fun on some super tight MTB trails...of course there probably arent many that would let it on.. Only way it would be a practical buy is if you were rich and/or it became a huge standard and parts were cheap and abundant.

It would be fun if it could be made road legal. They advertise great MPG and that thing would be a HELL of a lot more fun than a scooter.

For sure, But I wonder if it would require license, tags, and insurance since it is over 50cc? If so, I would just go with a DR-Z 400. (which I still want)
