    lol, yup, ur right. However, most power to weight ratios comparison are reported as dry weight. If we add on a 150 lb person, that ratio would drop to around 0.17 for this bike and ~0.27 for the ferrari

    Now where have I heard that term before? "Break-even point".. I think i've heard that in the maths classroom sometime ago.. but probably wasn't paying attention..

    me too if i go pure dirt riding.
    However, i would buy a scale down version of one those FX bike for city commuting, like 85 cc since 11.5 hp more than suffice. Weight might drop down to 90 lbs too. Anyone who can mass produce it and sell them for less than 1.5k will be rich. An exotic mountain bike(human powered) can cost 2-3k already.

    This pit bike 4 stroke 125cc 7hp only cost 1400 USD retail

    hey red00, how about this new toy?

    spec
    19 hp
    weight: 140 lb lead acid, 110 lb Li battery.

    low maintenance, cheap to operate. (1 cent per mile), low noise, no pollution

    check out their videos, http://www.electricross.com/
    comparable to a honda crf 125 -150.

    cost 5500 US. If this bike can be mass produced in china, likely ~3k

    nah......that isn't my cup of tea cooler. it just look like a bike with a air-con!!!! which is a bit ugly!
    don't really care about the noise though. so, i still prefer the one with a traditional touch! like those with a kick start gasoline powered engine.

    yes, at lease one privately owned dirt course in the new territories (rural area of hk).
    for me, if i got some money. most likely, i will buy a street legal supermoto bike. (motocross bike with street tyres). it looks really sexy to me!

    this thing is electric power.

    special reason:
    - 19 hp vs your lawnmower gas engine is 3.5 to 6 hp, electric mower ~ 1 hp.
    - electric means it's street legal (with lights add on) where as it's not with gas powered x-cross.
    - i rode a mtn bike before, it's no fun when the rider is tired.
    - can u maintain 40 mph on your mtn bike for 20-30 mile?
