Basic Introduction:

A dirt bike is designed for off-road and trail riding. Dirt bikes are typically made of steel, aluminum, and plastics. Dirt bikes can be ridden on a paved road (generally not encouraged, as it does damage to the dirt bike) but feature knobby tires and gearing that allow for torque and drive on loose dirt and gravel trails. Dirt bikes are single-track vehicles; their narrow tires make riding them on paved roads difficult. They are lightweight due to no extra parts or accessories required.

Dirt biking has been around since the early 1920s when riders originally mounted tubular steel rims with wooden wheels and achieved stability by adding wider than normal handlebars using lengths of bicycle chain wrapped around each end of the bars, for added grip between the rider’s hands and the bars – thus pioneering what was eventually to become known as ‘flat track’ racing. Although initially developed in California, the sport achieved major popularity in the late 1960s and early 70s when American riders were competing in motocross events across Europe. The motorcycles are built especially to take part in racing on dirt tracks, hence their name “dirt bikes”. They must be able to travel both forward and backward since they will race by turns. It is an advantage for races because racers can use reverse action during the turns to keep moving forward quickly.

List of Top Dirt Bikes:

In the dirt biking world, the Yamaha YZ 450F is one of the best bikes on the market. It is a motocross dream machine that performs well in just about every category important for riding off-road. The 450cc of engine displacement delivers more than enough power to keep up with all other bikes on any track or trail at 50+ mph speeds. Thanks to a rearward slanting single-cylinder engine along with a lightweight aluminum twin-spar frame, this bike can handle even better at top speeds.

Also known as the “CRF450X”, this Honda entry-level four-stroke motocross bike features an ergonomically sound chassis with extremely low seat height along with top-notch suspension components for maximum cornering, acceleration, and braking grip. This machine comes with an air-cooled 449cc engine that delivers smooth power delivery throughout the rpm range.

The Suzuki RM-Z450 is the ultimate motocross bike for riders who want a great overall package from their dirt bike. This particular model is known for its’ amazing acceleration and cornering grip; not to mention that it handles superbly on all types of terrain. The power delivery of this 450cc 4-stroke engine starts very smoothly throughout the entire rpm range while having enough torque anywhere in between to blast through muddy tracks, deep sand, or steep inclines depending on which type of riding you prefer doing with your motocross machine.

Before you say “Hey! The CRF250R is not a full-sized motocross bike!” understand that this particular model was designed for riders who want just enough power to cruise on trails while also being capable of racing in light dirt track events. With that said, the specs on this machine make it one of the best dirt bikes overall, and honestly; we had a hard time picking between this and some other models (including the above-mentioned RM-Z450). It does have a more powerful engine with an awesome throttle response along with rear disc brakes which give it more stopping power compared to most entry-level dirt bikes. However, if you’re willing to spend a few extra bucks; the CRF450R is an even better choice.

The Yamaha YZF-R3 is one of those motocross bikes that should be taken very seriously by other manufacturers because it will eat into their sales for entry-level and novice riders looking to buy their first bike or upgrade from something like a TaoTao ATM 50 D/150QE, Buddy 50, Baja 90, etc. This model is designed with modern features like fuel injection along with ABS & CBS braking systems which save money over buying separate parts that do the same job.

The Kawasaki KX450F is for sale for between $8000-$9500+ depending on your location, although if you shop online then you may be able to find one under that price. This motocross bike has a very smooth engine that will pull through any gear without hesitation or stalling which makes it great for all types of riding. It also features electronic fuel injection and an electric starter which makes it easy to start no matter what the weather conditions are like outside (especially during cold days).
