MOTO 3 rider, John McPhee picked up his new OSET 24.0R at Moto GP this weekend. The Scottish rider, who previously enjoyed an OSET 20.0R received the upgrade in front of a packed crowd at Day of Champions.
The young Scot, said: “I absolutely rode the legs off the OSET 20.0R and it just kept going – a brilliant bike! I’ve had so much fun on the smaller model, I can’t wait to give the OSET 24.0 a go. I literally rode it off the stage and round to the OSET area straight away!
“For me, they’re an ideal practice, fun bike. I come from a dirt bike background so to get back on one that’s loads of fun and no hassle is ideal – the most difficult part is getting the smile off my face!”
John is backed by the Racing Steps Foundation, a not-for-profit fund supporting the best of upcoming British motorsport talent. He races for the British Talent Team on a works Honda NSF RW 250cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke as #17. Clearly thriving, McPhee enjoyed brilliant consecutive second place finishes in Qatar and Argentina before he fought his way through from 19th on the grid to third in Assen.

OSET Bikes are all about giving kids the very best foundation no matter what form of two wheeled sport is right for you. OSET gives kids time on a bike, which is essential for developing ability from a very young age.
“And now, the OSET 24.0R has been developed to allow big kids to have a load of fun too! At the moment, demand is outstripping supply…it’s the bike everyone wants!”
