    Hi everyone,
    sorry to keep asking your opinions on pit bikes but I'm back on the pit bike market after the CRF50 deal fell through (sold, god damn it!:mad: ). I've been fixed on the Pitpro 140XR of a while now and all research has resulted in all round great reviews for the PP. But only recently I've found the Pimpit Industries bikes, they seen to be well built and according to the spec sheet consist of "quality components", both the Pimpit and pitpro have a Lifan 140, virtually the same seat height and have mostly the same components, at least that's what I gather from the Pimpit Industries website and the spec sheet on ebay for the PP. So if any one owns a Pimpit please tell me how they stack up against the PP or even how much they cost, maybe i"m not looking hard enough but the Pimpit website don't seen to have any prices:confused: . I would hate to buy a Pitpro only to find I could have gotten a far better Pimpit for a few bucks extra......I've put up the links to the spec sheets for both the Pitpro and the Pimpit if anyone is interested.

    Cheers Kyle.

    Yes the Pimpit has all very good quality parts including good suspension. The 140cc is $1400 and I think the 150cc is $1500. I would go for the Pimpit over the Pitpro!

    Thanks for the responses guys, this might be a stupid question but what is the pipe beside the exhaust head in the pimpit pics?

    Cheers Kyle

    If u mean the pipe next to the muffler it spits out any oil overflow. Great for the riders behind u lol but I think its just a gimmick

    Don't be fooled by the BS and kiddies that are sucked in by the pretty colours on the pimpit bikes. Take you time and have a closer look at them and you will see for yourself that they are pretty average and have been slapped together from the parts bin.

    for a bike with all that billet work on it it sure is cheap, alot spent on billet parts less spent on frame and engine9the croutial parts) that bike is all just looks nothing else, pitpro 140xr looks good but handles and runs even better

    Pitpro xr
    Yeah i thought that too, supposedly the pimpit bikes are TDR motos and, from the looks of the TDR website, aren't really a recognized pit bike manufacturer and seem to be fairly low key, I've certainly never heard about them before. taking a closer look at the frame on the pimpit it doesn't seem to reach out to the rear plastic, whereas on the Pitpro it does, and I won't have much money after buying it to replace broken plastics:( . For all the good looks, I think they're just dressing up a poor bike to begin with, or maybe I'm wrong, does anybody else agree with binking and Pitpro xr? I've attached a pic of the area around the rear plastic and a link to the TDR moto site.

    Cheers Kyle

    That's because the subframe is on top of the guard which is GOOD ........ NO dirt and crap sprayed up under the seat ...... I like the Pimpit .... Email the seller and ask for a pic of a bike with the seat and tank OR the complete plastics removed so we can get a sqizz at the frame ........ :)
