New CE Marked Mini Moto Quad 2013 Model With Easy-Start Pullstart
The new model for 2013 carries a number of upgrades making it the best and most reliable yet. We are about to take delivery of our newly designed model which is exclusive to Petrolscooter, one of the largest retailers in the UK. Re-designed front brakes, stronger axle bearing, stronger front frame and easy-start pullstart mechanism.
The mini moto Cub quad has been designed with safety in mind. Delivering all the features of a larger quad, but at a fraction of the cost. Its good looks, high level of specification and budget price make it irresistible to anyone looking for an introduction to four-wheeled motorsport. The UK has adopted the Cub as a favourite due to its unique size and the ease with which it can be transported in the back of the car.
If you are concerned about throttle restriction, then look no further. The Cub can be restricted to walking pace, if required, allowing the rider's confidence to grow. As proficiency improves simply open up the throttle settings and the machine will allow more performance.
The 2013 model carries numerous improvements including easy-start pullstart (making starting 50% easier), throttle restrictor and CE marking. Only recently released, the latest version includes re-designed Super R fairings, front and rear disc brakes, strong seam welded chassis, 'knobbly' tyres and the proven 49cc replica air cooled engine. Throw in sports chrome exhaust, front and rear suspension, key switch cut off and disc brakes and you have an unbelievably well equipped bike and an unbelievably good price.
The all-new Cub shows itself to be the perfect introduction to four-wheels. Versatile, lively and superb fun, the Cub quad bike is an absolute winner.

The Truth About Mini Motos / Please read this as we want you make an informed decision about buying one.
This goes for every mini moto not just our model, we just believe in telling customers the truth. Mini Motos offer fantastic value for money. They are great looking, easy and light to use, low to the ground, cheap to buy , have good parts availability and are quick. That said, they are made to a price and tend to receive far harder use than they are designed to take on surfaces that may be too demanding for the engine to take, with little to no maintenance.
We do our best to ensure they start and are complete but we are unable to road test bikes. We test start every private sale bike and give them a quick check over.
The cheap price is reflected in the build quality and component reliability. You should expect parts to break from initial start up and for the reliability to be inconsistent.you should only buy one of these types of machines if you have access to somebody who knows the basics of how to carry out repairs. Parts will fail and damage will impact on the bike as the machine gets put through its paces. Repairs are straightforward and there is little complicated to go wrong, but parts like pullstarts, coils, carburettors and clutches may not last long. The engines are good, but can be temperamental. Please remember that these are little two-stroke racing engines.
We would rather be honest and upfront with customers than supply machines that are way under customer expectations. If you have the budget and want real quality then there are numerous machines on the market priced at £500 - £1200 that will offer much better reliability and performance. Generally, four-stroke machines are more reliable, but they come at a price.
This is a motorsport product that requires minor customer assembly. This machine requires the customer to check it over prior to use. We suggest only mechanically minded buyers purchase these machines
Please note that with all Mini Moto products regardless of the issue we offer a 30 DAY PARTS ONLY WARRANTY. Once machines are shipped to you they cannot be returned. If you have any out the box issues we will replace parts only, and you will be expected to fit them. Please only purchase machines if you agree to this. Due to the nature of use, these bikes are impossible to warranty beyond 30 days. These items are expensive to ship so please don't buy unless you have read our terms and checked suitability.
We cannot accept responsibility for any premature wear and tear of any parts beyond 30 days.
All machine nuts and bolts, tyre pressures and steering should be checked by a competent adult before every use. Accident damage should be attended to immediately and damaged parts replaced. Helmets and suitable protective equipment should be used at all times, under strict adult supervision.
The Official Stuff
Please note: all mini moto products are NOT classed as kids toys, they are officially classified as off-road competition-only bikes, due to their design and potential top speed. Their build quality and performance means they are not covered by the Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 or BS EN 71., although all machines are CE marked as standard.
Machines will arrive in boxes that state this on the box and draw your attention to a minimum user age of 14.
Mini motos fall outside BS7407:1991 as they are classified as for off-road competition use only. Officially, mini motos are designed for users over 14 years of age, although parents have the final decision on the suitability for any mini moto product.
Adult supervision and protective clothing is required at all times.

What age range is this quad bike suitable for?
Legally, mini moto products are NOT classified as toys and should only be used by riders of 14+ years old. However, the vast majority of mini motos are purchased by parents for use by children much younger than this. Due to the small size and characteristics of the mini moto quad, it is often considered by parents to be the ideal size for riders younger than 14. Mini motos are understandably hugely popular with children and parents, although it should be stressed that such use is at the discretion of a responsible adult, and it is not the use that mini motos are necessarily sold for. Back to questions
How much assembly is required?
Minor assembly is required. The bike is mostly assembled, but some peripheral components will need to be fitted.
Machines are constantly being upgraded and changed so this detail could vary.
The front suspension legs are in position but the top bolt needs to be fitted. The front bumper uses 4 bolts which will need to be attached. The rear wheel are complete but need to be fitted. Basic check over by an adult to ensure no packaging or parts are fouling the transmission. This should take no more than half an hour. No specialist tools are required, a basic tool kit is supplied with the bike. On a regular basis machines will need a thorough checking over to ensure that all nuts and bolts are tight and that the machine is ready for use. Due to the requirement for ongoing maintenance, we suggest that machines should only be purchased by mechanically minded adults. Back to questions
Will it fit in my car?
Yes, mini motos are small enough to fit in most cars. Back to questions
How fast can it go?
The 49cc air cooled mini moto engine will reach a top speed of around 25mph unrestricted, rider weight and terrain dependant. However, speed can be restricted to suit the user, so inexperienced riders can learn at a safer speed. Back to questions
How will my machine be delivered?
The machine will arrive boxed, requiring minor assembly. It will be delivered by courier on the date of delivery between 8.30am and 7pm. Back to questions
Where can the machine be used?
Mini motos are not legal on public roads. They can be used on any private land with the permission of the land owner. The mini quad can be used on mild off-road terrain such as gravel and grass or on tarmac, although this will increase tyre wear. Use on fields and rougher ground may lead to premature wear through vibration. Back to questions
Can it take passengers?
No more than one person should ride the mini quad at any one time. Passengers affect the machine's ability to handle correctly and may cause loss of control. The extra weight may also cause damage to the machine. Back to questions
Is any protective clothing required?
Riders should always wear a helmet and protective clothing/pads to prevent injury. Helmets are available from our accessories section. Back to questions
Can I use it on the road?
Mini motos cannot be used on public roads. See "Where can the machine be used?". Back to questions
What level of technical support and assistance is available?
We man our phones 6 days a week (9.30am till 5.30pm Mon-Fri, 10.00am till 2.00pm Sat) and our on-site mechanic/s will be available to provide any support or assistance you require during the weekdays. Back to questions
Buying for Christmas?
Please ensure you carry out preliminary test start ups well before the big day. We cannot help you with any teething issues once Christmas is upon us. Warranty replacement parts are generally shipped by first class post, courier services are available but will cost extra. Shipping times around Bank Holidays do vary so be prepared.
