You won't see these bikes on the pro circuit anytime soon, but you just might see the riders who are on these on the pro circuit years from now. These are pretty darn factory for minicycles. - Vital MX


2014 Cobra CX65:  MSRP - $4,988

The 2013 CX65 certainly shook things up in the world of 65cc motocross. Motocross Action Magazine could not say enough good about the bike. On the engine, they gushed, “The CX65 power plant is a rip-roaring machine built for racing and ready to win. The two-piece cylinder is especially cool.” Furthermore, for the chassis, their observations were equally glowing: ”Often, a sharp handling bike sacrifices stability at speed, but that isn’t the case with the Cobra. It is a jack-of-all-trades, giving up very little across a wide range of situations. Most important, the Cobra CX65 is confidence inspiring, an especially critical quality in a bike designed for a mini rider.” With that kind of review, we could have rested on our laurels and cranked out more of the same motorcycle. Fortunately, for our customers, we decided against that. New for 2014 are improvements in every area of the bike…The front forks are lighter and have more travel, the rear shock is dripping with new technology, and the engine has even more power. To top it all off, the entire rider interface is improved (brakes, shifting, clutch, starting) to inspire even more confidence. All-in-all, the 2014 CX65 is big improvement on an already great bike!

2014 Cobra CX50SR (The King) - $3,988

Cobra’s flagship model in 1994 was the King 50. It changed motocross forever by introducing the first true race-ready 50cc motocross bike. Twenty years later, we’re still innovating, and in the time since, the King 50 has kicked off the careers of many of the world’s top racers including Davi Millsaps, Brock Tickle, Darryn Durham, Blake Baggett, Trey Canard, and Eli Tomac not to mention up-and-comers such as Adam Cianciarulo, Cooper Web, and Thomas Covington. For 2014, the King 50 receives several key improvements that will ensure it retains its spot as the bike that launches successful careers. The big news is the introduction of our all new CARD 32mm front fork. This fork is the little brother to the CARD 37mm fork that received rave reviews on our CX65 last year. It’s lighter, suppler, less prone to bottoming, and it’s fully adjustable. Without a doubt, this fork will revolutionize the way Junior takes to the track in 2014. In the powerplant department, an all-new cylinder head improves bottom-end grunt, and of course our patented Cobra Friction Drive (CFD) protects critical driveline components while at the same time improves rear wheel tracking ability. Furthermore, the entire rider interface has been improved with a new bar bend, wider foot pegs, and a lighter, stiff, adjustable rear brake pedal. All this (and more!) will make the 2014 Cobra King 50 the dominant senior-class mini for next year!
