Yesterday was the official launch of the OSET MX-10, (which we mistakenly guessed would be a full-sized motocrosser last week), and we get the release of this new video and a bunch of photos:
Still, this is going to make a whole lot of young would-be MX kids very happy indeed.
"The MX-10 features an adjustable seat height – giving even the smallest riders more confidence as they can touch the ground. When lowering the bike, the geometry alters to provide more stability for raw beginners. The front forks, rear shock and brakes are all designed to suit the bike and young riders – they’re lightweight and adjustable because one size does not fit all.
One of the biggest hurdles young riders have to overcome when riding a traditional petrol starter machine is the power delivery. With most of the power at the top of the rev range, many kids are simply too scared to give it a handful. Ian adds: “The MX-10 resolves that issue. The power, throttle response and top speed can all be easily altered to suit the rider. The very youngest riders can build confidence and speed safely. The linear, electric power is easy for children to master and allows for parental control."
Stay tuned for more details, like full specs, in a few days. You can read a little more about the bike and launch here, on the OSET site. Still, we weren't entirely wrong though. From the OSET site:
"In addition, the firm will also display a concept 24” machine at the show. Ian Smith added: “We have been working on a larger bike for some time and are now in a position to demonstrate a working concept to the public."
You can see the OSET MX-10, as well as the 24" bike at the 2014 International Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh Park near Coventry in the UK.
