All Orion & Apollo brand dirt bikes, pit bikes and ATV's come fully assembled and tested.
This means we put the unit together and mechanically test the bike to ensure it works properly. Unfortunately because of freight shipping companies hazardous material restrictions, we can not add gas and start the bike but we do change the oil and turn the motor, wheels, etc to make sure it operates properly.
