How old do you have to be to ride a 50 cc motorcycle?
you have to be 16 yrs old or over to ride a 50cc motorized bike It depends on where you are riding it and the type of bike you are riding. For powered bikes such as petrol trial or dirt bikes you can usually ride them at a younger age on private property (with the land owners permission) that the general public does not ordinarily have access to. For riding on the roads or where the general public have access you need to have a license and a road legal bike so check the laws in your region to be sure.

Whats more dangrious a dirt bike or a horse?
It is highly dependent on the situation honestly. Dirt bikes can go faster and further than a horse, people can also become very complacent about how 'safe' dirt bikes are. People are also to likely ride the dirt bike on a main road where they would not venture with a horse. People often flip the bike, get run over, or have accidents on dirt bikes. There is an average of 245 deaths per year from dirt bikes alone and an estimated 4,462 per year for all motorbikes. Horses are large animals with a flight instinct and don't always act predictably. A horse can buck, rear, bolt or flip over in an instant if they feel threatened. They may also go on the attack either on purpose or out of fear and hurt a human. There is an average of 100 deaths per year caused by horses in all activities.
What is the top speed of a 50cc engine?
The speed of the engine is defined as the maximum revolutions per minute of the crank, which would depend on engine design. 50cc chainsaws can rev to over 14,000rpm. The maximum speed of a vehicle with a 50cc engine would depend on its weight, the gearing, the fuel and the environment it is being ridden in. It is possible to tune a 50cc engine in a motorcycle to go over 100mph - but at the cost of engine longevity.
Asked in Motorcycle Safety
Why do off road motorcycles perform better maneuvers than street or dual purpose motorcycles?
Off-road motorcycles perform better maneuvers than street or dual-purpose motorcycles because they were deliberately meant, designed and manufactured to do so. They are relatively light, small and have tires that can grip the dirt pretty good, not to mention the suspension. However if you compare a dirt bike and a sport bike on pavement, the dirt bike would get outmaneuvered in a matter of seconds. Street bikes are designed for speed, and there are no compromises, the manufacturers have to give up all off-road capabilities for the sake of speed. Dual purpose bikes are made to go on both streets and dirt, but that requires lots of compromises, this way you loose some speed and some off-road capabilities, this way you can do both. Off-road bikes are meant to be agile and nimble to climb over things and jump over stuff and turn quickly on dirt... No compromises...
