2014 Limited Edition CX65 and King

ComEdKing65

It’s been twenty years since the first Cobras rolled onto the starting gate at the famed Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Tennessee. The year was 1994, and the presence of the little 50cc rippers was not without controversy. Cries of ‘Not Fair’ and ‘They didn’t build enough to be legal’ were soon put aside as the reality sunk in that the world’s first race-ready 50cc automatic motorcycle had made its way to market.

In the ensuring years, the little yellow bikes attracted both the attention of the best minicycle racers in the world as well as many competitors. Companies like KTM, LEM, Polini, Macbor, PRC, Factory Bike, Conti, and Metrakit all have attempted to throw their hat in the 50cc competition ring, and most have failed. Riders named Millsaps, Baggett, Tomac, Durham, Izzy, Canard, Tickle, Bowers, Web, and Cianciarulo have all used their Cobras as launching pads for their careers with a new generation graduating every year that will certainly make their ways into the hallowed ranks of professional racers.

Over those two decades, the little company from Michigan has managed to carve out a niche to serve not only the top minicycle racers in the USA, but also those from all over the world.

ComEdKing65_2 The CX50SR and CX65 Special Edition bikes serve to both capture the history of the brand with styling cues that commemorate twenty years of motocross lineage in addition to celebrating the technological advances that have kept the brand on top of the minicycle world. Each unit will be custom fit to the rider, and every frame will be emblazed with a unique number that ensures the owner has received only one of 50 units produced. Race them, collect them, enjoy them!

Cobra Jett! Cobra Moto’s Jett Reynolds dominates Loretta’s

The pride of Bakersfield, Calif. sweeps the 51cc & 65cc 7-9 divisions, going 6-0 in motos … Tennessee’s Casey Cochran adds the 51cc 4-6 title for Cobra Moto

Cobra Moto staff with Jett L to R John Penrod, Phil McDowell, Sean Hilbert and Tyson TenEyck HILLSDALE, Mich., (Aug. 6, 2013) – The American-made Cobra Moto competition dirt bikes enjoyed a 1st place-sweeping performance this past weekend at the Red Bull Amateur National Motocross Championship, presented by AMSOIL at famed country singer Loretta Lynn’s Ranch.

Leading the charge on the Cobra Moto bikes was California’s Jett Reynolds, an eight-year-old in the 7-8 age 51cc and 7-9 65cc divisions. So dominant was Reynolds – going six-for-six in 1st place moto victories – that Reynolds’ effort was rewarded by the AMA, which bestowed upon him the coveted “Youth Rider of the Year” … an award never before given to an eight-year-old.

“Absolutely amazing,” said Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert of Reynolds’ effort this past week/weekend at Loretta’s. “You saw history being made with Jett every time he took off out of the gate.”Cobra Moto's Jett Reynolds

Reynolds was most convincing in the second moto of the 65cc 7-9 class, coming out of the start sideways and in 39th (out of 41) place, only to pass back up to the front a mere three laps (of seven) later. Reynolds then crashed while passing into first place, got back up and was in the lead by the end of the same lap he crashed on! And this was against the best 65cc racers in the world, including Cobra Moto’s former 51cc Loretta’s champ Gage Linville (Georgia).

Joining Reynolds on the 51cc 7-8 podium was New York’s Reed Cooper in 3rd place, while Missouri’s Brock Lassiter (3rd) made history for Cobra Moto in the third 7-9 65cc moto when he joined moto winner Reynolds on the box – giving the American-made Cobra CX65 its first-ever double 65cc class moto podium Loretta’s!

Cobra Moto's Casey Cochran The intensity didn’t fade one bit in the 51cc 4-6 class with Hilbert calling it the “The deepest 4-6 field I’ve seen at Loretta’s in the past decade.” Cobra Moto’s little guys on the 50JRs were led by Tennessee’s Casey Cochran, who ho raced a very consistent and fast 2nd/2nd/1st three motos. Joining Cochran on the 4-6cc Cobra Moto podium sweep at Loretta’s were Arizona’s Noah Gordon in 2nd and California’s Haiden Deegan – son of MX/FMX great Brian Deegan – in 3rd place.

“Casey was just flat out fast – and got faster as the week progressed,” said Hilbert. “Noah had two strong motos to help him to 2nd overall and Haiden, after a tough first moto in the mud – which is doubly hard on anyone from California – came back strong for 3rd. Again, there were ten kids in this class that really stood out, where in past years there were maybe three to four.”

Scoring Cobra Moto’s final overall podium at Loretta’s – aboard a six-year-old oil injected Cobra 50JR – was Pennsylvania’s Levi Leatherman, who placed 3rd overall in the 51cc 4-6 Special Limited class.

Gate drops on 20 years of Cobra Moto @ Loretta’s

The American-made dirt bikes, which debuted on Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in 1994, are set to stand tall against the rest of the field in the 50 & 65cc classes

 

Cobra's Reed Cooper HILLSDALE, Mich., (July 29, 2013) – The Super Bowl of amateur motocross racing kicks off today in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., and the world’s premier competition mini bikes – built right here in the United States by Michigan-based Cobra Moto – will take center stage in this the company’s 20th anniversary of racing the great Red Bull Amateur National Motocross Championship, presented by AMSOIL at famed country singer Loretta Lynn’s Ranch.

As always, Cobra Moto’s loaded-for-bear at Loretta’s, this week featuring another all-star lineup like past ones that have delivered to Cobra more 50cc class championships through the past 20 years than any other mini cycle brand, as well as – by far – any American-made motorcycle company.

Cobra's Ryder Di Francesco “Loretta’s is what we work for at Cobra … why we catch a couple hours sleep slumped over at a desk in our design room, living with perpetually sore backs and bloodied knuckles, all in the name of designing and building the best competition mini cycles possible for these kids,” said Sean Hilbert, President of Cobra Moto. “Loretta’s is our Super Bowl, our Daytona 500 and World Series – all wrapped into one week of the best amateur motocross racing you’ll find in the world.”

Last year at Loretta’s Utah’s Pierce Brown – aboard the Cobra Moto CX65 – made history when he won the first-ever 65cc class amateur national motocross title on an American-made dirt bike. Brown was joined in the exclusive Loretta’s champion circle by Cobra 50cc racers Ryder Di Francesco (California) and Jayden Taylor (Michigan), giving Cobra Moto three major championships in 2012.

2013 Cobra Moto Loretta’s preview

50cc

Returning to lead Cobra Moto and with two more shots at championships in the 7-8 50cc class is Di Francesco. One of the heralded “Bakersfield Boyz,” Di Francesco will have to deal with a red-hot Cobra Moto factory stable mate in Jett Reynolds, who flat out dominated both the Vegas Mini GPs and Ponca City (Okla.) this year, sweeping the Stock & Mod classes at the GPs and winning an unheard of 16 of 18 motos – in one day – on his Cobra King 50 & CX65 at Ponca!

The ever-consistent Reed Cooper (New York) joins Di Francesco and Reynolds as a favorite to podium at Loretta’s in the 7-8 class, along with Californian’s Brock Bennett and Tyler Blankenship, Florida’s Evan Ferry (son of MX great Tim Ferry) and Missouri’s Brock Lassiter.

Cobra Moto’s 50JR is expected to again run the table in the 4-6 50cc class with what Hilbert called the “One of the deepest fields in recent years.” Leading Cobra into battle on the little bikes will be California’s Haiden Deegan, son of MX/FMX great Brian Deegan, and Jordan Torres, Arizona’s Noah Gordon, Tennessee’s Casey Cochran, Texas’ Codee Samples (who won the 50cc Stock Limited class last year at Loretta’s) and Tommy LeClere and Michigan’s Cole Kish.

65cc

Cobra Moto’s picking up right where it left off in 2012 with, and it bears repeating, the first-ever 65cc Loretta’s MX championship won on an American-made bike. Top Cobra names from the 50cc 7-8 class contesting the 65cc 7-9 class include; Reynolds, Lassiter, Bennett and Cooper along with super-seven-year-old Evan Slosser (Washington), Iowa’s Gage Steburg, Colorado’s Cade Britt and New York’s Hunter Layton.

Cobra Moto Flashback … With good starts and relentless pursuit of the racers in front of him, Brown didn’t just win the 65 7-9 Stock class in 2012 – he ruled it.

Leading the first moto by nearly 30 seconds at the end of the race sent home a message – one that even a fall (and subsequent 15-second margin-of-victory over 2nd place) would back up. Two more motos with roughly nine-second victories later and Brown and the Cobra CX65 had swept the class with a 1st/1st/1st effort for Cobra’s first-ever 65cc class overall win at Loretta’s.

So can Jett Reynolds duplicate Pierce Brown’s effort from 2012? Stay tuned as action gets underway tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. (CST) at Loretta’s in the 65cc 7-9 class!

Motocross Action Magazine Tests the 2013 CX65

Cobra's Jett Reynolds Smokes a Turn at Lake Elsinore It’s been ten years since the nation’s original MX Mag tested a minicycle. Needless to say, the Cobra Crew was nervous when we handed over the bike…We’ve read bike tests from MXA for decades, and we know they don’t pull any punches. After delivering the bike, we went as far as making some suggestions as to who they might pick for riders. We have several team riders on the West Coast, and we figured they would have some fun seeing their picture on newsstands around the country. Unfortunately for our team kids, MXA didn’t see it that way. They chose test riders they were familiar with…All of whom had another brand of 65cc race bike in their garage.

The test report blew us away. Every kid that rode the bike loved it. MXA spent five pages of coverage ogling over the engine and suspension. To check out the story in detail, pick up the June 2013 issue which hit the newsstands this week, or subscribe to the digital version here.

Below are some excerpts:

Engine:

“Every test rider agreed the CX65 ran like a scalded cat. The power plant was the testers’ favorite attribute of the bike. The engine has bottom-end hit and a solid pull through the range. Power really spikes once the electronic power valve opens, and it surges into the top end.”

“The CX65 power plant is a rip-roaring machine built for racing and ready to win. The two-piece cylinder is especially cool.”

Chassis:

“The CX65 chassis is very balanced front-to-rear.”

“The steel chassis is very forgiving in corners, and riders were very impressed with the CX65’s handling characteristics.”

“Often, a sharp handling bike sacrifices stability at speed, but that isn’t the case with the Cobra. It is a jack of all trades, giving up very little across a wide range of situations. Most important, the Cobra CX65 is confidence inspiring, an especially critical quality in a bike designed for a mini rider.”

“It’s hard to believe what Cobra has done with the CX65 suspension…”

Overall Impression:

“Imagine a motorcycle that is ready to race right out of the crate, at the highest level, and requires very little investment beyond the initial purchase price. The bike can legally compete in the stock class, and has won numerous championships under the fastest youngsters in the sport, and is made in America.”

“The Cobra CX65 is a winner through and through.”

Cobra Moto salutes its Amateur National Arenacross Championship champs!

Cobra Moto racers rack up the titles at Las Vegas’ South Point Arena this past weekend, led by New York’s Reed Cooper who won both 50cc & 65cc titles!

Dane Morales Las Vegas AX action 1 LAS VEGAS (May 10, 2013) – The 14th annual AMSOIL AMA Amateur National Arenacross Championship had a decided Cobra Moto appeal to it in the junior classes as kids on their American-made Cobras nailed national AMA titles in three 50cc class championship divisions, as well as a national title in the 65cc class.

New York’s Reed Cooper was the top dog for Cobra at the ANAC, taking division titles in both the hotly-contested 65cc 7-9 class, as well as the overall No. 1 position in the 50cc class’ senior 7-8 division. Cobra Moto’s Dane Morales (Calif.) – who doubles as one of the nation’s top young BMX racers when he’s not ripping on his King 50 – would reign supreme in the 50cc 4-6 class. And Pennsylvania’s Cole Bader would add Cobra Moto’s impressive fourth title with an overall victory in the 50cc 4-8 class.

 

1st – 50cc (4-8)*: Cole Bader – Quakertown, Pa. – Cobra

1st – 65cc (7-9)*: Reed Cooper – Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y. – Cobra

1st – 50cc (4-6)*: Dane Morales – Huntington Beach, Calif. – Cobra

1st – 50cc (7-8)*: Reed Cooper – Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y. – Cobra

 

Adding solid podium finishes for Cobra Moto at the ANAC were California’s Ty Freehill, who was the runner-up in both the 7-8 50cc and the 4-8 50cc classes. New York’s Ryder Cooper, Reed Cooper’s younger brother, placed 2nd in the 4-6 50cc class and California’s Chandler Jones rounded out Cobra’s scoring at the ANAC with a 3rd place finish in the 7-9 65cc class.

Up next for Cobra: The Monster Energy Mammoth (Calif.) Motocross, June 21-30.

Cobra Moto’s Jett Reynolds cleans house @ Vegas Mini GPs – wins 5 classes!

Cobra Moto racers absolutely dominate the competition at the Mini GPs, winning Jr. Stock/Mod, Sr. Stock/Mod, Super Pee Wee, 65 Jr. Stock/Mod championships!

Cobra Moto racer Jett Reynolds MESQUITE, Nevada, (April 19, 2013) – What a week/weekend of racing for Cobra Moto’s Jett Reynolds! The superfast Californian was The Man (despite only being eight years old) at the Vegas Mini GPs, winning all five classes he entered on his Cobra King 50 and CX65 race bikes to achieve a feat only the likes of Jeff Ward and former Cobra Moto great Adam Cianciarulo have accomplished in the 40-some year history of the World Mini GPs!

“Jett was absolutely phenomenal. Certainly one of the better performances at a major amateur national race in the history of Cobra Moto,” said Sean Hilbert, President of Cobra Moto. “He’s definitely going to be one of the riders to beat in the 50cc Senior class at Loretta’s this summer, as well as being a threat to podium as well on his CX65.”

In all Reynolds captured the 50cc 7-8 Stock and Modified classes, the 65cc 6-8 Stock and Modified classes and the all-star Super Pee Wee 6-9 class. And right there with Reynolds were a couple more of the Cobra-mounted “Bakersfield Boyz” – California’s Brock Bennett and Tyler Blankenship – both of whom picked up multiple podium finishes on their Cobras in the classes Reynolds won.

As is always the case when the amateur national MX circuit heads west, Cobra Moto enjoyed seeing some new names and faces in high-placing positions on their Cobra JR50s, King Cobras and CX65s. California’s Haiden Deegan (Brian’s son) and Arizona’s Noah Gordon swapped wins in the 50cc Through 6 Modified and Stock classes, respectively, while California’s Jordan Torres and young BMX great Dane Morales (son of former BMX champ Brian Morales), along with Colorado’s Wryder Huffman also put up some excellent numbers on their JR50s.

“It’s always great to see the new fast Cobra kids from California and the other western states show up for their first big national event,” added Hilbert. “Our little guys swept the top ten spots in both of the Junior classes and really set the stage for what’s going to be a great East/West battle the rest of the year at places like Mammoth, Ponca City, Loretta’s and the Mini Os.”

Up next for Cobra: The Monster Energy Mammoth (Calif.) Motocross, June 21-30.

Brraapp! There go the Cobras as the gate drops on the 2013 amateur national MX season

California’s Ryder Di Francesco and Jett Reynolds lead the Cobra Moto assault on the nation’s top amateur MX events beginning this weekend in Florida and Texas.

2013 Cobra Moto Team

HILLSDALE, Mich., (March 8, 2013) – Though they still have a couple feet to grow and a hundred or so pounds of muscle to pack on, the guys you’re going to read about here – Cobra Moto’s 2013 Team members – could very well be the same guys making up the top ten overall in the Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship series’ 250 class a decade from now.

Putting the pen to yet another chapter its legendary legacy beginning this weekend in Daytona Beach, Fla., this year’s Cobra Generation represent the best-of-the-best in the nation’s 50cc Jr. and Sr. classes, along with some title contenders in the 65cc classes as well.

“Once again the Cobra Moto roster is stacked with talent from top to bottom,” said Sean Hilbert, President of Cobra Moto. “We’ve recruited the fastest riders from coast to coast in the United States – from Bakersfield, California to the eastern seaboard, Midwest and deep south. Cobra Moto’s 2013 Team are represented by every region of the United States, truly our nation’s best young racers all under the Cobra Moto banner for 2013.

Here’s a look at the Cobra Moto-backed racers for 2013, beginning with the tandem from Bakersfield – Ryder Di Francesco and Jett Reynolds.

Cobra Moto Team

Ryder Di Francesco: Simply put, only one other racer in the history of the Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Championship (besides Ryder) has won the 50cc class National Championship twice – and that guy’s leading the Monster Energy Supercross 450 title points chase right now. Ryder had a spectacular year on his Cobra King 50, dominating the 4-6 class. This year Ryder will be a young 7-8/7-9 50cc class racer, but expect him to challenge the bigger kids all summer long.

 

Jett Reynolds: Though a couple falls kept Jett off the podium at Loretta’s last year, the Mini Os were Jett’s races to shine – sweeping the MX and SX classes on his Cobra King 50. The highlight for Jett’s weekend in Gainesville, Fla. – and possibly his season last year – was when he tracked down, caught and passed the then older Cobra racer Gage Linville to win Mini Os’ 50cc SX crown.

 

Jaiden Taylor: Michigan’s top 50cc racer, Jaiden won the 7-8 50cc amateur national title last year at Loretta Lynn’s – giving Cobra another sweep of the class (along with Ryder’s 4-6 title). Not having the luxury of riding his King 50 outdoors much during the winter months in Michigan, Jaiden trains with freestyle BMX and has become quite the little ripper on the ramps. Come summer he may take a couple motos to shake the winter rust off, but soon hits full stride and will challenge the amateur nationals’ titles in the 7-9 65cc class.

Nicholas Romano: Battling with fellow Cobra Moto racer Ryder Di Francesco all summer long, Romano would score the first amateur national win of his career at the end of 2012 – finally getting the better of Ryder at the Mini Os. The New York-based Romano will join Di Francesco as two of the nation’s top seven-year-olds in the 7-8/7-9 50cc classes on their Cobra King 50s this summer.

Reed Cooper: Another New Yorker on Cobra Moto’s National Team, Reed was 2nd at Loretta’s last summer with three solid motos. And though he had to miss the Mini Os because of Hurricane Sandy, watch for Reed – who’s one of Cobra Moto’s more consistent racers – to come out of the gate fast as a veteran eight-year-old in the 7-8/7-9 50cc classes this summer.

The rest of the Cobra Moto Team members: Brock Bennett (Bakersfield, Calif.), Cade Britt (Highlands Ranch, Colo.), Noah Geyer (Fredericksburg, Md.), Daniel McCullon (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.), Ryan Pruett (Greenville, S.C.), Codee Samples (Midlothian, Texas), Gregory Stewart (Elkhart, Ind.), Johnny Weber (Kenosha, Wis.), Chase Yentzer (Carlisle, Pa.) and Hunter Yoder (Murrieta, Calif.).
