250cc X31 Gio Pit Bike Review

Article by Tom Stark

Are you looking to get into the pit bike realm? Are you on a budget? You're in the right place because Gio Bikes, a Canada based company, has some awesome deals on pit bikes. While China continues to build mostly worthless pieces of junk, Gio Bikes has been making and selling off-road worthy pit bikes.

A 250cc pit bike is the perfect learners bike for a larger kid or an adult because it has a high enough seat height and has enough power for a bigger rider. Gio Bikes has a few different 250cc bikes, but the 2010 X31 (19"/16") is their most popular 250cc pit bike. You may be thinking, "this is just another cheap look-a-like dirt bike," because it's not as well known as Honda or Kawasaki. Think again, because these pit bikes are Canadian-made with higher quality parts than China copycat bikes.

Engine

The engine in the 2010 X31 is a 250cc air-cooled four-stroke. It has decent torque, but pulls good in the mid to upper rpm. It comes with a high-performance Mikuni carburetor, which is used on the best name-brand motocross bikes. This bike has enough power for anyone to have fun on. It can hold its own in the trails and has enough 'oomph' when messing around with your friends. It also comes with a high-flow exhaust system that provides good power and sounds great.

Chassis

The engine is wrapped around by a lightweight aluminum perimeter frame. It's the style that the big motocross bikes use. The CAD designed frame is made to be abused by adult riders and weekend warriors. It's much stronger than a Chinese pit bike and is light enough so a kid riding it can lay it down in the corners without tipping over.

Suspension

Are you a younger and smaller rider that likes to rip the trails up? A female that wants a good bike to follow the family around? Or are you a bigger guy that enjoys fartin' around on a pit bike and shows off to his friends? If you are any of those, or in between, the suspension on this 250cc pit bike can adjust to your riding style. Both the shock and the forks have fully-adjustable suspension that is Japanese-grade (much better than Chinese). The forks on the 2010 X31 are inverted Fast Ace shocks that have great damping. They probably aren't quite strong enough for motocross or big jumps, but they do get the job done if you stay close to the ground. For the rear, it has an air cell Showa shock absorber. Showa shocks are used on Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, and other big name-brand motorcycles and dirt bikes, so you know it's top notch. Not all pit bikes come with fully-adjustable suspension, let alone adjustable, so that is a huge benefit this 250cc Giovanni pit bike has.

Build-Quality

Almost every part on this pitbike is made with high quality material. This means less sudden breakdowns, unlike Chinese copycats. Just by looking at this bike you can tell that the parts aren't cheap. You will be able to ride Gio Bikes 250cc bike for hours on end, assuming that you do regular maintenance to it as you would any other dirt bike. I would definitely recommend Gio pit bikes for their quality parts as an alternative to Chinese bikes.

Additional...

There is a lot to the X31, but the main features other than the engine and suspension are the brakes, controls and other body parts. Both wheels are stronger than the previous years of this bike, assuring you they will withstand the abuse given to them by adult riders. On the wheels are hydraulic disc brakes to give you stopping power like motocross bikes. The triple clamps are made from high-grade alloy that make the controls softer and more comfortable. Plus, you can get the bike in four different colors!

Final Thoughts

The anodized and motocross style features, the Japanese-quality parts, and the slick look of this 250cc pit bike make you want to go ride. With electric start, anyone that can get their butt on the seat can ride it. If you want a cheap, durable bike that has enough power and suspension to tear up the trails and corn field, go no further. Gio Bikes has auctions where you can get these bikes for dirt cheap (pun intended). If you don't want to wait for an auction to end you can just pay for a bike and they will ship it out to you right away. Also, if you want to upgrade or change a few parts, Gio Bikes has plenty of aftermarket and replacement parts in stock to fit your pit bike. As long as you take care of this bike, it will take care of you. Have fun, and rip it up!
