Crossfire Motorcycles Review
Chinese pit bikes and dirt bikes have become all the rage in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. When the Japanese and Euro manufacturers like Honda and KTM are charging a fortunate to Australian families, someone has to fill the gap.
After all, you want the kids to be out there and having fun as we did during our younger years, instead of scrolling on Wastebook and showing off a little too much on Instagram.
That’s why companies like Crossfire exist. They want to bring affordable dirt bikes to Australians who can’t afford the fancy gear nor the expensive servicing and repairs.
Crossfire Motorcycles are Made in China but have some Italian influence. Their final assembly is done here in Australia, otherwise everything is built in Chinese factories and exported. This explains why they are so cheap.
What They Offer
Cheap thrills. When you could spend months or years saving up for your kids’ dirt bike, you could instead be seeing them out there riding within the next month or two.
You’ll find dirt bikes, quad bikes and go karts in their range, as well as some seriously cool buggies too. The engines are reliable, though not so powerful and they lack that ‘oomph’ in each powerband. Certainly no 2-stroke!
What most people don’t realize is that Crossfire Motorcycles are illegal to be ridden anywhere except for private property. No problem if you’ve got a few acres or take the bikes to a riding area, but if you’re looking to ride these in state forests…then you’re outta luck.
It would be good to see ADR compliance on their 250cc varieties in the near future. It seems as though Braaap is working on one at the moment, though that company has had its fair share of problems too.
Did you notice a few negative reviews and experiences like we did when researching? Well, it’s all quite straight forward. Most people won’t detail positive experiences online yet are quick to leave a negative experience. As a brand, that would be quite frustrating.
What you’ll notice that Crossfire uses a network of dealers across Australia. So it could be the dealer themselves that is being a slight pain when the product itself is perfectly fine.
Likewise, Crossfire is working towards increasing their processes and reputation. It’s already pretty strong having been running now for around 12 years. They’re not just distributing in Australia either – as they are becoming quite popular in Canada.
Crossfire is a good company that’s building themselves a good reputation. Sure – they’re not impressing everyone but the volume of happy owners is apparent. What they build actually works and you can buy one for the fraction of the price of the equilavent of a Yamaha or Honda.
And now, they’re not the only company in town. But for parents looking to help their kids getting started offroad without the huge expense and burden, then this is a great starting point.
