Question What is the right size bike??

     

Looking for advice on a starter bike for my son.
He has no experience riding, 11 years old, 120 lbs, 4 1/2 feet tall. Is a xr70 too small?

I would definately say yes. I'm guessing you're steering that way to try and gain the convienence of the clutchless trans. At 11 I would think he'd be old enough to learn the clutch/shifting routine with some proper training (good bonding time, just remember to be pacient). I would say even the 80 is small and if you want to stick with Honda () I'd look at the XR100 unless he can't touch the ground when he sits on it.

I agree with faded, go with an 80 or larger, take him to a shop and sit on a few bikes, but I would recommend buying used. Let him build his confidence on something already scratched up.
