What is the difference between a motocross and a dirt bike as seem classified in different categories?

That is kind of a tricky question. Dirt bikes encompass any bike that is ridden off road plus what are known as dual sport bikes. Most of the manufacturers categorize their dirt bikes as motocross or off road. Basically "dirt bikes" break down like this; 1) Motocross race bikes and woods race bikes. These are both liquid-cooled bikes with aluminum frames and racing suspension (compression and rebound settings, long travel, etc.), the woods race bikes just have some minor changes such as a wider gear ratio, a heavier fly wheel, bigger tank, lights, softer spring rate, etc. 2) Trail/play bikes. These bikes have air-cooled engines, steel frames and much less suspension than the race bikes. 3) Dual Sport bikes. This category is everything from Woods race bikes with a dual sport kit installed to make them street legal to production dual sport bikes such as the Honda XR650L and BMW 650GS.

What is a Dirtbike?

If you have never owned a dirt bike its a motorcycle made for off road and not on road purposes but you may change the tires to go on road. Once you get better you can race one another, free ride, or do free style. I recommend free ride once you get used to the bike. There are also different dirt bikes for example: 50cc, 70cc, 80cc, 110cc, 125cc, 150cc, and 250cc. There are also two different kinds of dirt bikes, Trail and Racing. Trial dirt bikes are for the mountains and free ride but not made for racing they also go slower than racing dirt bikes. Racing Dirt bikes are made for racing and are way faster than trail bikes. There are also 4stroke dirt bikes and 2stroke dirt bikes. 2 strokes take oil in there gas and way faster than four strokes and 4 strokes take regular gas. I was at the trake once with a kid with a 2stroke and I have a 4stroke 80cc and course he beat me to a race not because I'm not bad because I have been riding for about 4 or 5 years its because he had a 2 stroke. but the kid did have more skill than I did because he did actual races. sometimes its not how big the bike is its how much skill you have
