If you haven’t noticed Orion Pit Bike Sales is spreading its wings a bit. We have introduced a few new products over the past several weeks and they aren’t exactly your traditional pit bikes. With our time in this industry we have been exposed to a few ideas and manufacturers that are worthy of our customers. We call these products “Brand X”. We hand pick these products because we believe they offer quality fun at affordable prices and fits the Orion culture. These products include our new 150cc mini UTV and the 125cc XK go kart. We have been dedicated to pit bikes and the pit bike industry for 6 years and will remain committed. Our goal with branching out is to offer the same great products, warranties, customer service and tech support that we have offered for years on our traditional pit bikes. We hope you like our new products and enjoy them as much as we have. Stay tuned because you neved know what we will come up with next.
Did someone say “free”? Usually when you see the word “free” it means you’re about to get something that’s probly not worth anything. And you are right most of the time. The latest one we have seen is a online company offering a free set of no name riding gloves. These are the same gloves we can buy overseas for $1.50 and they say they are worth $29. Its no wonder anybody trust’s when they hear the word “free”. This is one of many offers you will see that are designed to take the focus off the product, the warranty and the customer support or lack thereof.
At Orion Pit Bike Sales we actually give you something you can use when you purchase a pitbike from us. With any pit bike purchase you receive two quarts of real Maxima oil (this is so you can do your initial break in), Thread lock, extra NGK spark plug and a free starter tool kit. And with a few of our models we are even giving away a free pit bike performance pipe. At Orion Pit Bike Sales we believe in providing value not gimicks.
We wanted to make the general public aware that we have found a lot of online sellers using our name illegally to market other pit bikes and dirt bikes.
The latest is a company called Sunny Sports. This company also sells under the website scooterdepot.us and buyscooter.com . We have found that if you do a search with terms like “orion pit bike sales” or “orion pit bikes Texas” this company is doing some targeting to try and lure unsuspecting customers in with our name. This company clearly doesn’t offer our product but in their advertising they use our name.
Let us be very clear…..we do not dealer sell our products to any online sellers. The only place to buy guinuine Orion Pit Bike Sales products is directly from us. We don’t want our product pushed thru these mega dealers that sell anything with wheels. Most of these online sites that are like this would never be able to provide the specialty support necessary. Plus they are only interested in quantity not quality.
“So what’s the deal with this new Mini/Kids 150cc UTV?” you ask. Well it’s simple, this was such a fun product we just couldn’t resist.
We did our research and found a lot companies selling a 150cc mini UTV but there was really only one manufacturer in China that we trusted to build a reliable machine and back up production with parts supply. We really like the idea of this machine and hope to grow this segment of the industry more. Who’s to say what the future will hold but we expect big things. With the GY6 engine there are plenty of upgrades available. We will also be working on non-engine upgrades in the future as well.
We were surprised at how it performed with an adult on board. It was surprisingly quick and agile. Safety was another big issue to us and the 150cc mini/kids UTV has really addressed the safety concerns we have always had when buying a Motorsport product like this. The full roll cage, safety belts, safety nets and throttle control makes this a better choice over an ATV for some kids. With proper riding gear ( helmet, boots, etc) you should be fairly safe…..unless you do something stupid in it of course; which we have been known to do.
We hope you enjoy the Mini UTV as much as we have and will be updating our blog with more post on it in the future.
We get a lot of calls with people needing parts for their “Orion” pit bike. The first question we ask is what model. The typical answer we get is, not sure it just says Orion on it.
We would like to make this a public service announcement and let everybody know that just because it says Orion on it, doesn’t mean it is our pit bike. We have found at least 10 different factories in China that have built pit bikes and put “Orion” stickers on them in the last 5 years. This doesn’t mean that our parts won’t fit though. Luckily the factories have done a good job at standardizing the parts they use so it gives the customer a better chance of a parts match. The problem is when there is the customer who buys the imposter bike and has lots of problems with it because the manufacturer used an inferior motor or other parts. This has given our company a bad rap in the past because they actually think they have our pit bike. Unless you bought it directly from us, it would be safe to say you probly don’t have one of our bikes.
So if you are not sure what bike you have, just email us and we can help you identify it. While we can not guarantee a 100% match on parts on a bike we didn’t make, we can possibly come close enough to help you get your pit bike up and running.
