The craze originated in the early 2000s when riders would buy CRF50s, install bigger engines and stronger suspension and race them on the weekends. Updating was expensive and time-consuming, so Thumpstar decided to manufacture Pit Bikes so riders could get a new bike designed for adults right out of the box.
Today, Thumpstar has a full range of Dirt Bikes from kids 50cc to full-sized 250cc, used for all types of riding conditions. Thumpstar's most popular Pit Bike is the TSB 125-C. This model has been around for a long time and is popular because of its price tag and having a 125cc engine, which is much more powerful than the original 50cc that started Pit Bikes.
Thumpstar makes it easy to buy a Pit Bike through an authorized dealer.
