MiniGP racing began its rise in popularity in the early 90s as riders realized the many benefits of racing minibikes. New riders could learn the fundamentals of riding a real motorcycle. Since riding on MiniGP bikes uses the same techniques as those used on Superbikes or GP bikes, experienced riders could confidently push their limits to hone their skills without the associated risks of doing so on a full-sized motorcycle given the MiniGP’s smaller size and lower speed.
Kayo’s MiniGP was designed to fill a void by providing a race quality motorcycle at an affordable price. Its ease of transport and lower running costs make it the perfect bike for enthusiasts to get involved without the huge investment: for young riders to learn on and use as a stepping stone, and older ones to get out and race, but still be able to be back at work the next day.
