The OSET 2017 16.0 Racing was a revelation on it's introduction, and is often the bike riders and parents choose to enter the world of OSET Cup competitions. A lot of effort has been put in by the OSET design department to create a bike that is functional, ergonomically correct, and able to grow with the rider.
The 16.0 Racing features a powerful 800w OSET motor, air/spring forks, compression and rebound adjustable shock, powerful and reach adjustable hydraulic disc brakes and custom OSET designed Kenda tyres with a different profile for the front and rear. Alloy hubs, handlebars, steering stem, foot-pegs and more ensure that weight is kept to a minimum. High quality bearings are used in the headset, swingarm and wheels. A sturdy steel frame combines with all other components to make a bike that will be good for years of use. It is no coincidence that used OSETs retain an exceptionally high resale value. These machines are built to last.
For 2016, improvements include an all new battery securing system, an improved steering lock plate allowing tighter turns, improved motor sealing, an improved rear splash guard, a new 'map' which provides smoother acceleration and deceleration, and stunning new graphics that match the new range of OSET riding gear.
Naturally, safety features are paramount. On on/off handlebar switch is easily operated by the rider, while the separate key switch is easily removable by the parent when it's time to take a break! The OSET controller has been designed for our exclusive '3 dial' system, which allows parents to easily adjust the characteristics of the bike. By simply removing the rubber bung in the 'tank' area, the responsible adult can adjust the speed, power and response of the bike. It can be set from a very mellow machine at walking pace and low power, all the way up to a competition level machine with maximum power. For those learning to ride, the throttle response can be set so the reaction of the bike to throttle openings is softened.
The OSET 16.0 Racing is a dream machine for 5-7 year olds. From the tires to the handlebars the bike is covered in custom parts designed by OSET specifically to suit young riders. This bike helps riders to develop skills very early and gives them a head start before stepping up to bigger machines.
