This question is a little hard to answer. It all depends on the different factors involed, so there really is no hard answer.

The average you could expect to recieve from a brand new 12 volt sealed lead acid battery, with a 50 pound kid on pavement, should be a little over an hour. Here comes the it depends part. If the battery is older, then not as long. If the kid is lighter/heaver, then longer/shorter respectively. If it's ridden in grass/uphill/rough surface then shorter run times could be expected.
