At Orion Powersports and Pit Bikes supplying great bikes, ATV's, UTV's, Parts, Apperal and Accessories is the most important part of our business and to this day our passion lies with you in the thrill of riding. Since 2005 we have continued to supply great products at great prices that maintain that same kind of "Fun Factor". We are excited about our products and hope they add some passion to your riding life. Whether its winning a national event or spinning laps with your buddies, Orion Powersports and Pit Bikes has you covered.
We also believe in "riding what you sell". Before we introduce a new pit bike model we ride it, wrench on it and put it thru rigorous testing before we put it into production. Because of our R & D facility and our multi-factory sources, you can trust that the highest quality products are always available to you at the best prices. Matching our products with our industry leading customer service & support has made us the #1 choice for Pit bikes , Dirt Bikes, ATVs , UTVs & Powersports Parts & Apperal.
While other companies take short cuts and use gimmicks like paid BBB accreditations, inferior warranties, hidden fees & cheap junk giveaway items.......we focus on our nearly 10 years industry experience of providing superior customer service, tech support, parts support, unmatched product warranties, and quality innovative products. You can count on us to take care of you every step of the way!
"For all those who love the sport as much as we do our company is dedicated to you!"
Our pit bike models have participated in races along with other brand name bikes and have captured 1st place multiple times. We recently put our bikes to the test at a 6 hour endurance race, where we had a podium finish with no mechanical problems.
Whats going on at Orion Powersports?
As you have probably noticed there are a lot of changes going on at Orion. We recently did a huge website redesign, added the SSR pit bike line, added the new Orion race series bike line and the ODES UTVs just to name a few.
We have spent the last 10 years making the name Orion mostly synonymous with pit bikes. What you may not know is we also have a full service powersports, off road and truck accessories store under the name "The Fun Factory" right here in Granbury Texas.
We have decided to merge the two into Orion Powersports and offer the same great products on our website as we do in our brick & mortar storefront.
We have access to over 500 brands & 13,000 + powersports, ATV, UTV, motorcycle, Jeep, truck & offroad accessories so you will see a lot of new products in the near future. We will be adding areas to our website that encompasses everything we do in our service and technical areas as well. We service and sell parts for major name brands like Polaris, Can Am, Kawasaki, Yamaha and Suzuki. We also sell and install truck and off road accessories including lift kits, tires, wheels, LED lights and sound.
We will also have an area for our two flagship UTV/SXS brands that we offer in our storefront, ODES UTVs and Massimo UTV's. These are two of the hottest brands in the USA right now and we want to lead the front with an online presence for both of these brands.
As you can see our website and online presence will be changing a bit in the future. We will always be a dirt bike & pit bike company at heart and now we plan to bring the same great online sales/service to the other areas of our business. Feel free to call or email us if you have any questions and as always, thank you for your continued support.
P.S.....make sure you follow us on Facebook.
What is a pit bike?
Pit bikes are smaller versions of their big dirt bike cousins. They have been around for many years, and the numbers of fans continue to grow.
Originally, the pit bike was designed to be used by racers and mechanics to get in and out of the pits at motocross races. They started out as Honda CRF 50 and Honda Z50 models. They were easy to maneuver and fast enough to get around during the heat of a big race. Of course we begin to race the pitbike just like our big bikes and the evolution of the modern pit bike began. Most of these bikes have a 4 stroke, horizontal engine and basic suspension but riders began to push the limits with modified motors, suspension, etc. You can easily swap and change exhausts, carburetors, and even wheels to modify both the style and performance of you bike.
There are many benefits to owning a pit bike. They are a lot less dangerous than a full sized dirt bike because they are not as fast, lighter weight and lower to the ground. If your kid is bugging you for a dirt bike, but you are concerned about safety, pit bikes may be the best answer. Because it is less dangerous than a big dirt bike, this is also a great alternative for adults that want to ride as well. Pit bikes are especially beneficial for beginner riders.
Another benefit of a pit bike is ease of transportation. They are typically smaller so you can easily put one of these in the back of your truck and still have room for camping gear, riding gear, etc. If you’ve got a decent sized car or SUV, you could possible put a pitbike in the trunk.
Finally, pit bikes are much cheaper to buy and maintain than traditional big dirt bikes. Depending on your budget, you can pick up a decent pit bike for less than $1,000. The cost to maintain your pit bike is fairly cheap as well. If you have a little bit of mechanical know-how, pit bikes are very easy to maintain.
As the popularity of these bikes increase, more and more are being mass produced in China. There are several brands, including Orion pit bikes, that are producing quality pit bikes that are budget conscious.
