Coleman CT200u

I'm looking at the Coleman CT200 minibike. The same one that Cabalas had on sale on black Friday for $350. BJ's is selling them for $499.

Coleman CT200U Trail 200 Mini Bike (152435477 |) | BJ's Wholesale Club


some spec's

Displacement 196cc
Combustion Cycle 4-stroke
Bore and Stroke 68 x 54mm
Compression Ratio 8.5:1
Carburetor HUAYI P19 Rated Power 3.8kw @ 3600rpm
Rated Torque 11Nm @ 2500rpm
Idle Speed 1700 150 rpm
Top Speed 20mph (32km/h)
Gear Ratio 10:1

my questions are;

1. The top speed seems very slow , am I going to be able to tweak this thing and get it ti go faster?
2. I see 250lb guys riding doodle bugs all the time, is the any reason to believe exceeding the weight limit by 50lbs will be an issue on this one?

I just seen the MB200 in the other post also for $499

The MB seems like way more bike for the same price.

It looks like they have the same engine set up. The mb is bigger and 30 lbs heavier. I guess the mb has bigger wheels and thats why the higher max speed.

I think I like the traditional look of the coleman better though.

is the MB a better bike?

I never knew that the Coleman existed. I do like the racks on it. More speed more money!

it already has a 6.5 hp motor and a jack shaft (is that a torque converter?). What else would I need for a little more speed?

It is not a torque converter.

Not the type of bike your going to ride down the road -you may find its fast enough for the trails
As for the weight rating, there are safety factors built in but I would expect breaks in the frame and burning out the clutch quicker.

For the money, I would go with the Coleman -just my opinion.

I have this bike - I got the one at Cabela's on black friday. Top speed out of the crate was 18.4 mph (GPS) with jackshaft and my 275lbs a$$. Single best upgrade is the Comet TAV30 (got mine from OMBwarehouse) Took a little work to fit it on but it now does 40 mph and still can pull wheelies, climb hills, etc.

Here is mine:
