Oftentimes people confuse dirt bikes with sporty street bikes like motorcycles and vamped up scooters, so we are here to give you a rundown of all the differences to clear up any confusion.
The appearance of a dirt bike is a good way to be able to set it apart from other street bikes – that is, if you know what to look for. A dirt bike is usually smaller, slimmer, more compact, and more lightweight because of the nature of how it is ridden. You will notice a higher saddle on dirt bikes that is closer to the front of the vehicle.
Dirt bikes have much more knobby tires than street bikes. This is because dirt bikes require a lot more traction since it is driven on the uneven and sometimes “loose” ground, like piles of dirt. These tires wouldn’t be seen on a street bike because they have smoother tires since they are only driven on the road. Street bikes’ tires would look more like the ones you would see on a car.
If you are watching someone ride, you can often tell the difference between a dirt bike and a street bike based on how the rider is positioned. Dirt bikers tend to lean forward with the bike, and they are often seen standing up while riding. This is all due to the better performance the rider receives based on the structure of the bikes and the hills and dirt.
