MX-10 or KTM

OSET MX-10

This page has not been created to take anything away from the KTM. Anyone who knows kids dirtbikes, knows that the KTM is the bench mark. 

Here at MK Off Road, we're passionate about all motorcycles, and own both petrol and electric bikes! 

The MX-10 is only criticised for one thing, the price. And while it may seem high, when you look at the spec involved you can justify it. We just want to highlight that the OSET MX-10 is an option when looking for a new bike, and that it has a lot of benefits once you take a good look at it. 

This page exists to highlight the cost savings going forward when purchasing an OSET. 

Please note! All prices are estimates. Fuel, oil, parts etc prices change often. Deals can be had, and different kids will ride more or less often and different paces.

£0

Like any bike, the chain tension will need checking and adjusting accordingly, the brakes checked for safe operation, the throttle checked for smooth operation. Tyre pressures etc etc

 

KTM

£5 per plug if needed

Gear oil £2.50 every other ride

Air filter oil cleaning kit approx. £25 (will last a while)

Similar to the MX-10 in terms of checking moving parts

In addition, the air filter will need to be cleaned and oiled

Check gear oil level, change every 2 rides.

Check coolant level

Change spark plug if necessary

Forks will need to be checked for leaks (the OSET is packed with grease rather than oil)

Fill with fuel

A new OSET MX-10  is potentially £1375.68 cheaper to buy and run than a new KTM 50 Mini in it's first year.

Aswell as that, there are also the below benefits 

·         ​No pollution or fumes to breathe in

·         No noise to upset people

·         No kickstarting

·         No running to kickstart them should they need help

·         No leaking fuel or oil, especially if the bike is on it’s side

·         No need to dispose of old oil

·         No hot exhausts or parts

·         No carb to clean

·         No need to plug airbox/exhaust when washing

 

 

·         MORE time riding in areas where noise/fuel wouldn’t allow

·         MORE time to do other things than oiling filters, changing spark plugs, pistons etc etc

·         MORE time riding means kids learn faster

In the second year, the gap in expense will grow further. As the need to rebuild the crankshaft, replace reeds, throttle cables, clutch/fluid, cylinder replates etc etc.
