There is one....built with off road racing in mind. They do have the frame strength, so long as you're not trying to jump it like it was a supermoto bike. The Transmission case is baffled and filtered.
The Yamaha Zuma 125
I don't see how those "normal" dirtbikes can survive...what with having an open chain that has to be covered with a dirt-attractant
45MPH up a steep hill is no problem, though I did elect to go with a 155cc kit and a re-gear of the final drive so I could ride on the county roads at 65.
The one thing that the Zuma 125 has going against it for an 11 year old is seat height and width. Most adults are on the balls of their feet at a stop.
