First Look: 2021 Cobra Moto Models 4

It's getting close to Loretta's time, and the Cobra crew have a whole new batch of goodies to unleash.

First Look: 2021 Cobra Moto Models

What’s New & Improved on the 2021 Cobra CX50P3 and CX50JR

 NEW! Steering stop design with built-in cushion.

NEW! Forged and anodized wheels made of aircraft-grade Aluminum. These wheels are lighter and stronger featuring an all-new spoke pattern resulting in reduced unsprung weight and improved handling. 10” front and 10” rear.

NEW! Mega Flo Yellow Plastic.

Venom Series Engine  – Both the P3 and JR are powered by Cobra’s Venom Series 50cc powerplant. This thing rips! Cobra engineers designed a  ‘no-compromise’ torque curve featuring massive amounts of low-end torque for launching off the gate and out of corners, this in addition to Cobra’s classic over-rev that provides that ‘2nd gear’ for wide open situations. This little beast offers more power, more torque, less weight and a smaller, lighter package.

Micro Handle Bars - Cobra is proud to offer Pro-Taper’s innovative Micro Handlebars across our 50cc lineup. These bars will revolutionize the way that young riders control their motorcycles by offering a reduced diameter grip area that inspires confidence and reduced fatigue.

Spectro-Factory Fill – Cobra and Spectro, two proud American companies with a long history in motocross, have teamed up to ensure that each Cobra model comes from the factory with the finest in lubricants and chemicals. This includes everything from wheel bearing grease, to brake fluid, to suspension fluid, to the oil on the air filter.

5Gx Freewheeling Clutch - Precision engagement, durable, freewheels for increased corner speed and easier starting.

Forged Aircraft Grade Aluminum Triple Clamps – All of our 50cc models receive new clamps in 2019. These clamps are lighter, impart less force onto the fork tubes for improved suspension action, and they provide a clamping feature onto the steering stem for improved steering feel.

Frame Head Tube and Steering Stem – A thinner wall head tube and a 7075-T6 Aluminum steering stem work together to reduce weight and centralize mass.

Dunlop Geomax MX33 Intermediate-Terrain Tires – Dunlop is at it again. In 2019 they have introduced the completely re-engineered Geomax MX33. Enhanced grip, improved slide control, and a larger contact patch with the ground all add up to reduced lap times. No corners cut here!

IMPROVED Front Brakes – Further refinements on the CARD front brake system include a more powerful 9.5mm master cylinder piston, improved master cylinder bore finish for better brake feel, and a thinner, more ergonomic brake lever to better fit small hands.

Coil Mounting – The ignition coil is now moved further away from the engine to keep the critical electronic components cooler.

IMPROVED Air Box – A reshaped airbox opening allows easier installation of the air filter.

Lightweight Fasteners – Several fasteners have been re-engineered from aircraft grade 7075-T6 Aluminium for even more weight savings.

What’s New & Improved on the 2021 Cobra King 50

NEW! Forged and anodized wheels made of aircraft-grade Aluminum. These wheels are lighter and stronger featuring an all-new spoke pattern resulting in reduced unsprung weight and improved handling. 12” front and 10” rear.

NEW! Hybrid Oval twin spar/Backbone frame with revised structure and removable aluminum subframe. The new chassis reduces weight, improves handling, permits a twin radiator system, eases maintenance, and is stronger.

NEW!  Twin radiator system improves cooling, reduces power loss to heat, and increases ground clearance.

NEW!  Longer wheelbase improves high speed stability.

NEW!  CARD rear shock has revised valving and improved reservoir design that tucks in better creating a slimmer mid-section.

NEW!  Quick change air filter with vertical orientation reduces the chance dirt encroachment into the engine.

NEW! Air boot/Air box design provides over 2x the volume of clean air between the filter and the carburetor resulting in more power everywhere.

NEW! Steering stop design with built-in cushion.

NEW!  Ergonomics provide a slimmer, flatter seat for easier fore-aft transitions and accommodation for a larger range of rider size.

NEW!  Works style tuned pipe for increased power and a flatter torque curve. The result: earlier clutch engagement for improved rideability and more over-rev for enhanced top speed.

NEW!  Ergonomic hand holds that make lifting the bike easier both at the starting gate and onto the stand.

NEW! Exhaust pipe and silencer combination: Pipe layout and tuning spec add both low-end torque and top-end power.

NEW! Chassis geometry: Longer wheelbase for improved stability. Shorter swingarm for reduced rear-end kick over braking bumps. Increased rake provides both improved stability and smoother cornering. Lengthened head tube stiffens front end for enhanced steering feel.

IMPROVED!  Fork settings resulting in improved handling on the roughest of tracks.

NEW! Mega Flo Yellow Plastic.

5Gx Freewheeling Clutch - Precision engagement, durable, freewheels for increased corner speed and easier starting.

Revolutionary MXT “Smart Leg” Front Fork – Cobra’s exclusive 32mm USD CARD cartridge fork is the finest fork in minicycle racing! The Smart architecture simultaneously provides supple action over small bumps, and progressive control through the biggest of hits…A feature especially important for minicycles that run on tracks torn up by bikes twice their size! This fork also features fully adjustable rebound and compression damping and bottoming control adjustment not found on any other fork of any size!
