High purchase and maintenance cost of dirt bikes

The high cost of dirt bikes is a major factor that restrains the growth of the dirt bike market. Dirt bikes are typically outfitted with high-performance shocks, brakes, and engines that can withstand the demands of off-road riding. As a result, dirt bikes can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. Also, dirt bikes require regular maintenance to keep them running correctly. Hence, the upsurge in adopting dirt bikes in other than developed countries, such as China and the U.S., is limited by high costs. Therefore, high maintenance, as well as the purchase cost, is a significant factor that restrains the growth of the dirt bike industry.
