Re: AlphaSports Mini-Kolt 50?
My mini 50 Kasea is sold in the UK under the name "Buzz Mini 50". They have a new SE model that has working headlights and a remote kill. I am trying to get the parts to update my mini Kasea from my UK contacts. I also contacted SMC (Standard Motor Corp) in Taiwan, who makes the Kaseas and also sold as Blasts in the US and the Buzz and Ram label in the UK. They told me they could sell me the remote kill, but I also want the headlights (for safer daytime riding only), but I also inquired about the lack of front brakes. The owner's manual states front brakes (optional). So I don't know if they have them for it or not.
I'd say, if you're looking for a starter quad for a 3-6 year old (that you can hand down) I'd go for the Alpha Sport mini Kolt if you like it. You're not looking for speed and MX capability for these youngsters in any of these micro minis. But once you want a full size youth ATV, get a Kasea SkyHawk 90. It has a rear foot brake (very important) and has a ton of aftermarket parts to go as fast as you want, and more importantly, handle much better and safer. It is also pre-wired for headlights/taillights and you can get the kit for like $50.
The Kaseas are very reliable. My sons mini 50 is hopped up to do @24 mph. It doesn't handle the jumps very good (its not made to), but for flat track, trails, riding in the yard/fields and hill-climbing .... it rocks.
