Dirt Track

Speed and engine

It is a style difficult to see captured on neoclassical motorcycles, only used by a few daring people looking for a more extreme racing look. A style coming from American lands that proposes a totally groundbreaking concept and opposite to some of the most popular classic styles. Only suitable for a few.

Origin of Dirt Track

Dirt Ovals

The origin of the Dirt Track style dates back to the early 20th century in the United States. The Dirt track began to take shape with the emergence of races that took place on wooden ovals with an inclination of 45 °, although at that time they were known as Board Track races and the participants raced on bicycles.

Soon after, motor and speed began to be introduced, which turned these races into extraordinary high-risk shows.

High-risk shows

The tilt of the slopes caused the riders to tip over towards the inside of the track, making it impossible to evacuate the riders in the event of an accident. In an attempt to reduce these safety problems, it was decided to move these races from the wooden enclosures to the dirt ones, keeping the same oval shape on the track.

Thus, began one of the disciplines with the greatest presence in North America and which, subsequently, would continue to expand throughout the rest of the world.

Dirt Track Bikes

The most daring at the track

Dirt Track bikes are characterized by their great personality in design, flashy colors for those fans of racing motorcycles. A finish faithful to its origin but, unlike the original Dirt Track bikes, have been designed to enjoy driving and not to compete.

Motorcycles with noticeable aesthetic lines inherited from the purest current of dirt racing competition, far removed from the classic canon of other styles. To achieve a Dirt Track conversion, an extra level of risk is required by opting for a more radical and personal set of parts.

Characteristics of Dirt Track bikes

More radical and personal

An off-road character, accompanied by more aggressive lines, focused on unpaved areas. A concept highly demanded by those looking for a transgressive motorcycle designed for action. A style that includes customizable parts, such as the numbered front end and the square side covers on the sides.

In addition, its silhouette is also characterized by mixed tyres and a single-seater seat. All these features are intended to create the most aerodynamic position possible to increase speed.

Dirt Track engines

Who will win?

If you are one of those intrepid riders for whom the Dirt Track is the option you were looking for, the next step is to know which engine you need to start your conversion. Typically, the most commonly used bases for this type of conversion are Triumph Scrambler or Triumph Bonneville.

On the one hand, the Scramblers already have those off-road characteristics we mentioned before, so the conversion to the Dirt Track style is much simpler. On the other hand, the versatility of the Bonneville allows them to be adapted to almost any type of classic style without further complication.
