first bike for my 8 year old

Recommended Posts

Looking for recommendations for a first bike for my 8 year old. He rode around on a friends ktm 50 pro senior yesterday and did really well. I'm just not sure if there would be a better first bike to start with. I've read a bunch today and it seems like people think that may be a little much for a first bike. A lot seem to recommend a crf50. Are there specific features that would make that a better bike for beginners? I'm open suggestions for other bikes as well. Thanks in advance.

Video of him on the ktm about 15 minutes after he started riding. I think he did pretty well for never riding anything with a motor before...

I would say a 50 is too small. Ttr 90 would be good. My 8 year old is on her third bike an xr 80. It is surprising how crazy fast she is. Scares me..... a lot.

Honda gas a 110 with an auto clutch now. Good size for a kid in that size range. Big enough and small enough
