The TSB70 is the perfect bike for kids to learn on. Feng-Hong have long delivered an engine package which provides the traditional Thumpstar thump, giving you the peace of mind that your bike will consistently start. The semi-automatic 4 speed engine gives your child a gearbox which allows them to select gears via the standard gear lever without a clutch. This makes it much easier to ride for beginners, giving them more ability to focus on learning braking, throttle control, and when to change gear. With regular maintenance these engines go for years, typically lasting far past your child's need for a bigger bike as they grow.
