If you are planning to shop for a new 50cc pocket bike, you need to know
what exactly it is you are searching for, and the right questions to ask
before you visit a store, or even before you shop online, if that's your
preferred method. Not paying especially close attention to specific
features, or not asking the right questions can result in you buying a
50cc pocket bike that you don't really want, or even worse, can't use.

First, know exactly what you want your 50cc pocket bike will be used for.
Will it be fun and recreation, or will you be racing? This decision has
to be firmly set in your mind before you go out to make the purchase. If
you will be using the pocket bike for recreational purposes, and you have
no intention of racing, you can expect to pay about $400 or a little
more. A very reasonable price. It's a completely different story if you
want to race. If you eventually plan to race, you may find that you need
to pay up to a full $7000 to get what you want. The price difference
shows you pretty quickly why you have to know what you're investing in.
Generally you will find that any pocket bikes you are looking at were
made in one of two places. There are the pocket bikes that are built in
Italy, and there are pocket bikes that are manufactured in China. The
bikes made in Italy are typically among the highest quality bikes.
Higher quality also brings a higher price, but once again what you should
be willing to spend on a 50cc pocket bike depends on what you are going
to use it for. If the bike is going to be used solely for recreational
purposes, then look at the ones made from China, because the difference
is not that large if it is just for fun. If you're looking to race, buy
from Italy.

Keep in mind pocket bikes are not very comfortable, due to their small
size - unless you are very small or a kid. So, comfort isn't what you
need to look for, however, you still need to be comfortable enough to
ensure that you have full control of the bike at all times. Take the
bike for a test run, and make sure that your body isn't touching anything
that it shouldn't, like the exhaust pipe, and that you're comfortable
controlling the bike.
Talk to the pocket bike dealer to find out what spare parts are available
for the bike, and how hard those parts may be to get. Find out what
parts need to be replaced often. Remember, they sell 50cc pocket bikes
for a living, and they are probably the best experts you are going to
find. They will be able to tell you all you need to know about what the
bikes need, and what they don't need. Also, find out if there is a
mechanic at the dealership, or in the town, that is capable of making
repairs should they be needed, and inquire about warranties as well, the
same types of information you would want for a new car. Make an informed
decision based on your needs, and you will find a pocket bike an
enjoyable investment.
