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!
