 Extensive look at the redesigned 2013 Cobra CX65 as well as insights on the new 50cc models!

HILLSDALE, Mich., (Oct. 8, 2012) – For the very first time in Cobra Moto’s storied history the reveal of the upcoming product line is captured in stunning full-color HD video, showcasing the newly redesigned Loretta’s-winning Cobra CX65 from top-to-bottom for Cobra customers and retailers alike.

Narrated by Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert and photographed and edited by Matt Wozney of MXPTV.com (Moto Xposure TV), the new Cobra Moto 2013 reveal video covers the newly designed CX65’s American made and industry-leading front forks, custom wheels, twin spar tubular frame, extended swing arm and improved suspension, high output 65cc engine and braking that allows junior racers to stop on a dime.

“Cobra Moto is pumped to ratchet up the launch of our 2013 line to include, for the very first time, video of the new bikes and components – plus putting them all in action,” said Hilbert. “Matt Wozney did a great job pulling this all together at Loretta’s and we’re confident the MX industry is going to like what they see in the new Cobra bikes for 2013.”

Filmed entirely at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. during the 2012 Red Bull Amateur National Motocross Championship, presented by AMSOIL, Cobra Moto’s 2013 reveal video features clips from the historic ride of Utah’s Pierce Brown to the first-ever 65cc Loretta’s title won on an America made dirt bike. The reveal video also features California’s Ryder Di Francesco, who became the first-ever racer to win back-to-back 51cc (4-6) AMA 1 class title since the class’ inception in 1997. Di Francesco, racing the Cobra JR50, flat out dominated his class, going 1st/1st/1st in the three moto overall format. 2013 Cobra reveal footage also includes 51cc 7-8 AMA 2 class champ Jaiden Taylor (Michigan), Georgia’s Gage Linville and California’s Jett Reynolds.

Up next for Cobra: 41st annual Thor Winter National Olympics, presented by Pro Circuit, Gatorback Cycle Park, Gainesville, Fla. (Nov. 19-24).

After hopping on the Cobra Moto-inspired STRIDER bike, any toddler will want to tear up the track like their heroes.

If your toddler can walk, the Cobra Moto STRIDER will get your toddler cruising over dirt, grass, and pavement with ease.

Designed to be steady, stable, and safe, the Cobra Moto STRIDER bike is perfect for children aged 18 months to five years. The STRIDER weighs just 6.7 pounds, is easy to control, and features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child. Most importantly, the STRIDER bike teaches your child balance and coordination; and develops a glittering confidence not seen with tricycles or training wheel bikes.

“The new Cobra Moto STRIDER is one of the wildest looking STRIDERS ever,” says Ryan McFarland, Founder of Strider. “We are always trying to design new STRIDERS with an eye towards our youngest riders and Cobra Moto couldn’t be a better fit. The Cobra Moto STRIDER will let any aspiring rider feel like they are part of the race action! After the Cobra Moto STRIDER bike introduces riding on two wheels, Cobra Motocross bikes can build on that new confidence. What a cool connection!”

Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert adds, “I believe the STRIDER bike is one of the coolest new products introduced in years. The little two-wheeler is a perfect platform for learning proper balance and control, and it serves as a great stepping-stone for little rippers who want to make the transition to a motorcycle. Of course, the STRIDER bike is perfect for younger siblings of current Cobra Moto riders as well as any young motocross fan who want to be like their heroes.”

35mm SKF fork seal kits

By | Product Highlight | No Comments

SKF00600Cobra is excited to announce that it will be offering SKF seals and swipers exclusively as replacement parts for its 35mm USD 65cc fork. SKF has done an outstanding job engineering this seal kit for improved reliability and vastly reduced friction. At the heart of the kit is SKFs all new self-lubricating rubber compound designed to provide the following benefits:

  • Increased seal life
  • Enhanced water and dirt protection capability
  • Low and constant friction in operation
  • Reduced wear and air suction

The bottom line is that they really work! Right off the bat the two things we noticed were reduced stiction and much less pump-up during the course of a moto. These seals and swipers are now sold only as kits under part number KKC60002 (one seal, one swiper).

Already impressive Cobra 65 & 50cc lines are fitted with an array of new features and components to make the bikes even that much stronger, faster and more reliable

Already impressive Cobra 65 & 50cc lines are fitted with an array of new features and components to make the bikes even that much stronger, faster and more reliable

HILLSDALE, Mich., (Oct. 25, 2011) – We see it in their faces … that “No freakin’ way” look when a mini dad shows up to the MX track for the first time and his kid – sad to say on another brand – has to face a gate full of Cobras.

Humbling and unsettling at the same time. We truly feel for the kid. But there’s certainly a way around it … We’d love to sell you a Cobra!

For 2012 the already fast, amateur MX national-title dominating Cobra lineup receives improvements in a number of areas – ranging from the CX65’s all-new, game-changing computer controlled electronic power valve 65cc engine to Cobra’s new and improved patented Cobra Friction Drive® – destine to change the competition mini playing field even more in favor of kids on new Cobras. And don’t forget Cobra’s CNC machined mag wheels that set the standard for maintenance-free service – all features that evolved from the Cobra engineering staff taking the time to show at the races with the legions of dads (and moms and grandpas) who keep the Cobra Generation™ running and getting their valuable input on how to improve our bikes.

“Cobra engineers and technicians have been working very hard toward the launch of these models — fender to fender, top to bottom, engine to chassis. We are very pumped to show off the improvements to the 2012 Cobra lineup,” said Phil McDowell, Cobra’s Chief Engineer. “From the CX50 Junior to the CX50 Senior (“King” Cobra) and the CX65, 2012 enhancements will further the lineage of the world’s most successful competition mini cycle line, making them even stronger, faster and more reliable.”

Here’s a look at the changes in store for the 2012 Cobra mini cycle lineup, beginning with the CX65.2012CX65001

CX65

· X-Track aluminium swingarm: Aerospace construction technology delivers light weight and improved rear wheel tracking.

Cobra CX50 Sr., aka the “King” Cobra

· Revolutionary MXT front fork – Cobra’s new Velocity Sensitive Traction Control fork will revolutionize the competition minicycle market.

Furthermore, its action is very supple over small bumps, yet the fork is highly progressive for excellent control through the biggest of hits. Couple these improvements in damping with drastically reduced friction, and lap times will drop!

· Patented Cobra Friction Drive® – no one else has anything close. Cobra’s all new CFD design is much easier to maintain, and it offers reduced gear drag and lower rotating inertia. Of course, the benefits of a well-protected driveline and improved traction and suspension action are retained from our previous design.

· CARD piggyback rear shock with adjustable rebound, adjustable high speed compression, and adjustable low speed compression – more features than most of the big bike shocks!

· Largest air box in its class with a real air filter featuring the largest filter surface area that is vertically mounted for optimal engine protection and maximum power.

· Highly-tuned off-plane stamped pipe = more power, more ground clearance and less prone to damage.

· Cobra exclusive 2012 “Mag” wheels are lighter weight, stronger and, as always, maintenance-free! The new rear wheel is more than 25% lighter than last year.

· Billet triple clamps with adjustable bar mounts.

· Scott soft compound grips.

· Dunlop MX51 rubber.

2012JR001

CX50 Jr.

· An all-new piggyback CARD rear shock with high and low speed adjustable dampening control.

· An optimal combination of bodywork design, chassis layout, and suspension geometry that lets the CX50 Jr. squeeze out 25mm more suspension travel (front and rear) than our competitors.

· New enhanced frame design soaks up even more punishment for 2012.

· All-New Radiator Shrouds – Not only do the 2012 shrouds give the bike a much needed facelift, but they fit and perform better as well! Count on increased air flow over the radiator, improved radiator protection, and more comfortable ergonomics.

· Cobra exclusive 30mm USD forks feature more supple action for 2012.

· New cylinder head design for easier maintenance and improved torque.

· Cobra’s 2012 “Mag” wheels are lighter weight, stronger, and as always, maintenance-free! The new rear wheel is more than 25% lighter weight than last year.
