Exclamation Pocket Bikes and Pocket Bike racing

I dunno how many of you have read about the Pocket Bikes that Vega is launching in the market........Most of the Auto mags featured them in their february issue.

The Ducati ones cost upwards of 1.6Lac whereas the Vega ones cost 65K!

Pocket bikes are real cool..... you get 2 stroke and 4 stroke versions.....
the last time I saw a pocket bike was in Dubai, at the City Centre.This philipino toy shop was selling this chinise made pocket bike for Dhs 2000. A steal, but he warned me you could ride it only in the parks n stuff like that. Get such bikes only from comptent brands, since many manufacturers produce them, and quality counts for mini bike such as these.....

Default Hey guys...why cant we have Pocket Bike racing here?

Guys...Just a question...

Whay don't we have Pocket Bike racing here in Mumbai if we can get Go-Karts? We should just show a 2 wheeler license and the ride...that would be fun.

Any particaular reason?

I guess we have to wait for it to be launched in India first...have my eyes set on that since quite a while....We could also have race tracks for them then...like go-karts...I think the Ducatis do a top end of 80 kmph...

Not street legal. You can find them in almost every mall/toy store.
The look great and the cost upward of $400.00, gas powered with a top speed of about 35 mph. NOT STREET LEGAL. You cannot drive them on side walks either.

Instead of a pocket bike id rather get a gokart. Any idea how much theyre for? IMO ittl be a lot of fun to drive around Hiranandani ina Gokart at night.
