The OSET 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.
What’s New for 2017:
Updated sticker graphics.
New style thinner grips, suitable for smaller hands.
Padded chin guard fitted to the stem.
Magnetic kill switch fitted.
New black footpegs.
Side panel Velcro straps design changed to allow easier refitting of panels.
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 2017, improvements include new thinner OSET grips, a padded chin guard covering the steering stem and several detail improvements. An all new magnetic lanyard cut-out switch takes the place of the handlebar switch. A strap goes around the child’s wrist, so that when the lanyard is pulled, power is switched off. A separate key switch is easily removable by the parent when it’s time to take a break!
Naturally, safety features are paramount 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.
