Description

Czech native Pavel Blata first got involved with minibikes making parts for the Vittorazi minimoto company in the early 1990s. Expectedly, Blata was quickly hooked; before long, he was selling a line of his own bikes bearing his name.

Come 1996, Pavel Blata organized his own one-make class — the Blata Cup Racing Series — to be held throughout the Czech Republic. Equally represented by junior racers, female riders, and semi-pros alike, the series has seen winners go on to compete in the minimoto European Championships with great success.

Over the years, Blata has manufactured everything from scooters to pocket bikes to 125cc enduros. The Elite 11 stands out as one of the most performance-oriented pocket bikes that Blata has made. With its advanced engineering and precision manufacturing, the Blata 11 delivers impressive performance in a lightweight package. Powered by a two-stroke design, it produces a remarkable amount of power and torque relative to its size, making it an ideal choice for riders seeking a thrilling and responsive ride.

The example you see before you was meant to mimic the ever-appealing Ducati 748. Beneath its yellow bodywork, it’s powered by a 39cc two-stroke single — mated to an automatic clutch and a Dell’Orto 14 carb — good for a whopping 16hp and 8Nm of torque. While those figures might not sound like much on paper, they’re more than enough for a claimed 40mph top speed.

This example is VIN: CZ12095JF. We do not know the model year.

The true mileage is unknown.
