It turns out, there is not only one model of a dirt bike or what is also commonly called a dirt bike, but there are many kinds. Each model has its own characteristics.

OTOSIA.COM – Trail bikes are no longer competitive in Indonesia. Many manufacturers have marketed these scratching motorcycle products, such as the Honda CRF series, Kawasaki KX Series, and Viar Cross X.

It turns out, there is not only one model of a dirt bike or what is also commonly called a dirt bike, but there are many kinds. Each model has its own characteristics.

Reporting from Reddit.com, here are some types of dirt bikes:

1. Pure trail

Actually, the Kawasaki KLX and Honda CRF circulating in Indonesia are not classified as pure trail bikes. The reason is, both have various standard road equipment, such as headlamps, number plate holders, and turn signals.

In fact, the Kawasaki KX series does not have all of that. In fact, some pure trail bikes are not equipped with a key, but that doesn’t mean it’s keyless.

Usually, pure dirt bikes have engines with abundant torque. However, the maximum speed is lower than motorsport with the same engine capacity.

2. Trail street-legal

Kawasaki KLX and Honda CRF and Viar Cross-X are actually in the street-legal segment because they are equipped with various mandatory components for motorbikes circulating on the highway.

However, some parts are still the same as a pure dirt bike, such as the suspension and the front-rear gear ratio. In addition, the design is also not much different.

The engine on a street-legal trail bike or it can also be called a light trail. Therefore, the kitchen spur is made not as sharp as a pure trail, adjusting to the needs of the highway.

3. Adventure Touring

This concept combines touring with trail bikes. The reason is, some people like to drive far without paying attention to terrain conditions.

So, the advantages are almost the same as the light trail, it can be used on asphalt and off-road roads or sand and stone. Therefore, this type is also often called a dual-sport motorcycle.

In appearance, the adventure touring motorcycle looks much bigger and more powerful than the pure trail or light trail. Some examples of dual-sport motorcycles are the BMW R1200 GS, KTM 990 Baja, and Ducati Multistrada.

4. Supermoto

The super motor concept was born from a dirt bike mated to a sportbike. Because it has a tall posture, then its weight is lighter than a sportbike.

In addition, the traction and suspension is better than a typical dirtbike. However, the engine that is carried is not as good as a sport-fairing motorbike.

Some of the supermoto motors circulating in the market are the Yamaha XT660X, Ducati Hypermotard, and Aprilia Dorsoduro.

5. Scrambler

The scrambler motorbike is identical to the retro aura because of its rounded appearance, both on the tank, lights, and side body covers.

Actually, this concept is a combination of a city bike front tank with a dirt bike. Because of this, the appearance tends to be standard but has some trail bike components, such as under-seat exhaust and hoe tires.

Currently, there are still many motorbikes circulating that have been born scramblers without modification, such as the Triumph Scrambler, BMW R ninT Scrambler, and Ducati Scrambler.
