Off-Road

Off-Road

There are various types of off-road motorcycles, also known as dirt bikes, specially designed for off-road events.

The term off-road refers to driving surfaces that are not conventionally paved. These are rough surfaces, often created naturally, such as sand, gravel, a river, mud or snow. Compared to road-going motorcycles, off-road machines are lighter and more flexible, having long suspension travel, high ground clearance & seat height and are geared higher to provide more torque in off-road situations. Wheels (usually 21″ front, 18″ rear) have knobby tires, often clamped to the rim with a rim lock.
