The motorcycle or motorized bicycle was invented in Britain in 1884. In the time since many different types of motorbikes have been developed for different uses. The dirt bike is one of them.

The dirt bike is an off-road motorcycle. It is designed for use on rough surfaces such as gravel or dirt. These bikes are lighter than other motorcycles, with a high clearance to avoid obstacles.

Dirt bikes are often used in motocross, or off-road motorcycle racing. It is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world, as the rider uses almost all of the body's muscles to maintain balance. The first of these competitions were held in the early 1900s.

In addition to sport, these motorbikes are also used for transportation and recreation. In some parts of the world, roads are so rough and narrow that dirt bikes are necessary. They are used as city taxis in some countries, as they are small enough to pass easily through crowded streets.
