    I have a Roketa (chinese) go-kart which was restored from 20 years of torture and was impressed with it so i went for this this is my first bike but i have ridden friends bikes before but this has insane power is built 20x better than a honda. at the tripple clamp the frame wraps around the yoke to be extra strong. it starts first kick but i use the electric start anyways assembly from the factory was easy but i would recommend using a jack or stand. the clutch is great, straight out of the factory its racing quality. the parts are so cheap and are compatible with hondas or honda parts. it has a nice loud pop and the power of a 2 stroke 250 throttle response is amazing im 14, 5’7″ and 140lbs so i wouldn’t recomend this bike for anyone under 5’5″ it IS a full size not small or medium but FULL size. My dad 6’3″ loves the bike he is 52 but raced motocross for 20 years and has been riding 35 years and he says its built better than anything out there. before i found this we thought dirt bikes were out of the question given their price but this was on http://www.roketa.com and i found it here and sold some things to get the money. its amazing. i’ve dropped it once im pretty stong so its not so bad for me to pick up. the tires are simply the best my dad wishes he had them in motocross races. THEY WILL NOT LET GO OF THE GROUND.

    This review is from: New Apollo Dirt Bike 250cc Agb-36(apollo)(l08)
    I’ve been riding Japanese and Euro Bikes since I was 10yo. I remember when the Japan bikes cam onto the scene. People thought they were horrible…cheap…junk. When you bought one, you had to figure on days of getting the thing up and running. Well, people are saying this about the motor-sport items from China now. Here’s the big difference between the old-days of Japan and these early days of Chinese bikes: The China-bikes took all the best technology and methods from current-day Japan and employed it into their products. There is no better example of this than with Apollo.

    Keep in mind the old saying: “Everything is built in China now.” Yes…that’s true…even true for Japan’s bikes. They all use commodity parts (common) to create their not-so-unique product. Japanese companies are now publicly-held entities and thus, have huge responsibility to return huge profits to the shareholders. Their overhead is really high…they became fat, slow and complacent. The economy changed around them, and they have no adjusted…not in the USA or any other global market, They STILL charge massive prices for their products, essentially barring entry for the not-so-wealthy and/or those just wondering if dirt-riding is for them.

    My son would NOT be riding a dirt bike today had it not been for Apollo Orion and their quality…oh…and their pricing…oh and their vision. Leave the USA, and you see Apollo bikes everywhere, especially in developing nations. The US market is not dead yet…but it certainly is very small. The USA is about all that Japan has left for dirt bike consumers…and the baby-boomers are not buying them any longer. But with the price of the Apollo AGB 36 (250cc), anyone can have a fantastic and fully legitimate dirt bike, without fear of random whacky failure as we see with KTM and the Japanese bikes yet again. The Apollo frame is solid as a rock. The parts are ALL common to the current-day japanese bikes. The engine is a perfect clone of a Honda vertical 250 4-stroke. “Perfect clone?” Not really….it actually IS a Honda engine, built by the folks in china who made them for Honda, Many Honda bikes today come fully from China.

    The guys who race serious motocross will likely never ride an Apollo. That’s cool! But the average Joe out here will never be able to pay the Japanese prices either. And this average Joe will not have to hemorrhage cash to feed a Japanese bike its steady diet of expensive parts either. The Apollo is built to last and to not crack in half!

    So we have two Apollo 250s now. I remain amazed by them. And I AM a dirt bike surgeon.

    Mine came through one of the very few online dealers, ATVs-n-More. The riskiest thing about any heavy purchase is shipping. One of the bikes came through one of the American LTL shippers, who still think its funny to see if a pallet of Crystal Glasses can fly. ATVs-N-More took care of some shipping damage in spades!!!! I’m gonna hug that guy if I ever see him.
