The rear suspension feels a little springy having a travel of around 8 inches, however when operated at full speed, the shock is performing gracefully. With a 170lbs rider on top, it can take a while for the bike to get up to speed and it reached around 13 miles before the battery died. The smooth and quite operation of any Razor electric dirt bike is miles better than a gas engine powered bike.

This bike is designed for a more older riders ages 16 and older and a maximum weight limit of 220 lbs. However like any other Razor electric dirt bike, the heavier the rider the slower the acceleration.
Our kids tried this bike out and they have not let go since! Once the package arrive we had to install the handlebars and the front tire after that you're good to go. The first time we tried it we were surprised at how quite this thing rides. The fastest we got it to go was 22mph and under our clumsy hands the bike got dumped numerous times and nothing is broken.yet. The disc brake worked beautifully. However riding the MX650 on the street will accelerate the tire wear since this bike is mainly designed to be ridden off-road.

5. MX400 Dirt Rocket Razor Electric Dirt Bike
If you are looking for more of a starter Razor electric dirt bike, then look no more, the MX400 is perfect for you. It will provide enough power for you to have fun but not too much that it will intimidate beginners. The MX400 as the name suggests, is powered by a 400watt electric motor that will push you to 14mph. This much smaller Razor electric dirt bike has a lower supported weight of 140lbs, perfect for kids ages 8 and older. The bike is chain driven and operates super quite so your next door neighbor wont be pissed.
The 400watt motor is capable of going off road on 12" knobby pneumatic tires for an efficient performance. However be warned that this smaller bike does not have any suspension. The battery life is expected to be around 50 minutes of continuous ride, the bike will come with a charger. There is minimal assembly when the package arrived with a step by step instructions provided in the manual, it only took us around 20 minutes to fully assemble.
However this bike is a little too small for an adult to ride on. Because the seat height is around 2ft from the ground which wont allow taller children to put their foot on the pedals. Even though the manufacturer states that it is for kids ages 13 and up, we think it is more appropriate for children ages 9 due to their height.
In addition to that, another complain we have is since the bike does not have any suspensions, the ride is very rigid and can be a pain if prolonged use on rougher terrains. Furthermore the throttle is not variable speed, instead it is a twist version of a light switch producing jerky movement of the bike.
If you are looking for a Christmas/birthday gift for you 8 year old son then this bike is the prefect choice.
