Pitbike Info from 4/23 TPM Trackday - April 25, 2007, 08:14 AM

Here's the site link:

http://mxpitbikes.com/

I'm considering the 214XR for the fall.

I'm not sure if they would do a group buy or not but I will not be getting one until the September/October timeframe.

They have better numbers than the pitster as far as top speed but I didn't see a HP rating. The pitsters are between 8hp and 9hp for the top of the line bikes and those top out at 40 and 45mph respectively.

From what I can tell the top end is a bit faster on the 214XR. Usually, they have a few improved parts.

I need to do more research...from some thumpertalk hits I've read good things. Basically they have the same motors as the pitster, thumpstar...etc...

So why spend double the money for basically the same bike.

The 214xr lists the power at 5.7kW, which is about 7.64HP.

Thanks...I took a quick look. So it's down a bit from the pitster but for the price which is nearly half I think I could live with that. The main thing you need is the low range power to get out of the corners fast. For the most part the tracks are more concerned with corners so the low end is where you'll make up time. Of course, top speeds of the pitsters are 40 to 45 so if this bike hits 59mph...that power difference will be made up on the top end if the straight is long and of course you could always change out gears or upgrade!
