The original King 50 was one of the most controversial bikes in motocross history. It was the very first truly race-ready 50cc motocrosser to hit the market, and it was so much better than all of it's competitors that many lobbied to make the bike illegal for competition! The drama subsided, and in the ensuing years this little monster kicked off the careers of many of the world's top racers including Ryan Dungey, Eli Tomac, Blake Baggett, Davi Millsaps, Trey Canard, Cooper Webb, Adam Cianciarulo, Thomas Covington, and Brock Tickle (just to name a few). For 2017, the base model King receives many of the improvements that the groundbreaking Factory Works King brought to market just a few months ago including:
NEW! Frame - For 2017, our flagship King 50 receives updated steering geometry for improved straight-line stability and better tracking under rough conditions.
NEW! Engine - The King will receive Cobra's new Venom Series 50cc powerplant for 2017. This thing rips! Cobra engineers designed a 'no-compromise' torque curve featuring massive amounts of low-end torque for launching off the gate and out of corners, this in addition to Cobra's classic over-rev that provides that '2nd gear' for wide open situations. This little beast offers more power, more torque, less weight and a smaller, lighter package.
NEW! Off-plane Tuned Expansion Chamber - Packages tight, features D-shaped header for minimal flow losses.
NEW! Lightweight Wheels - Cobra has taken its lightweight and maintenance-free wheels to the next level. Lighter wheels mean less rotating and un-sprung mass which translates into improved acceleration, handling, and flight control.
NEW! Micro Handle Bars - Cobra is proud to announce the addition of Pro-Taper's innovative Micro Handlebars across our 50cc lineup. These bars will revolutionize the way that young riders control their motorcycles by offering a reduced diameter grip area that inspires confidence and reduced fatigue.
