A look at the Chinese ATV Market
Are you looking for an inexpensive ATV? As the market for Chinese motorcycles has grown, along with it has come the ATV market. Some people are looking for Roketa ATVs for sale. Roketa is one particular brand of chinese made ATV's. There are other brands too, and many factories produce these machines in China. There are now many different models ranging from 50cc kid's models up to 250cc (and BIGGER) adult machines available to purchase. These seem to be popping up all over the place, and they can offer a lot of machine for a little money.
Similar to Chinese motorcycles, it is important to do some research to try to determine which Chinese factory produced the ATV you are considering. Make sure that you also explore the parts supply, so that you can be better assured that you will be able to repair your ATV in the future. There are a lot of dealers with Roketa ATVs for sale, but just make sure that the dealer you are working with actually has parts available. Some people with Roketa ATVs for sale (and other Chinese brands) claim to have parts, but the reality is that many of them do NOT actually have them in stock. If they can get them, then it will often be weeks or MONTHS before you will actually get them... IF you ever get them. Keep this in mind while searching for Roketa ATVs for sale. Keep that in mind for any Chinese vehicle! It's no good having a machine that is 99% complete, but have 1 small part prevent you from being able to ride. Just make sure (very sure) that you can get parts! Try to figure out a way to verify the dealer's parts availability more than just asking: "Do you have parts?".
Some of these ATVs are powered by small 2 stroke engines (like 50cc) with automatic CVT transmissions. Typically the small Chinese ATV have the 2 stroke engines and CVT transmission. As you go bigger in size and engine displacement, then the bigger Chinese ATV can come with 150cc, 200cc, 250cc, and larger 4 stroke engines. Many are rear wheel drive. Some of these have manual shift, manual clutch, multi-speed transmissions and there are even some 250cc twin cylinder powered machines. Almost all of the engines found in these machines are clones of Japanese engines (which is a good thing), so the basic designs can be very good. The engines found in Chinese ATV can be air cooled, forced (fan) air cooled, or water cooled. As long as the factory that manufactured the engine had good quality standards, then these engines should serve well for many years if they are properly maintained.
It is possible to buy one of these machines at a fraction of the price of a comparable Japanese machine. The Chinese ATV may not be as refined in all areas and may not have the same level of quality, but they can offer a tremendous bang for your buck in terms of features for the money. If you don't plan to run your machine a lot, then the difference in quality may not be that important. However, if you are planning to work with your machine every day and rack up a lot of hours, then you want to make extra sure that you are buying a good quality machine. If you are in the market for an ATV and are looking for Roketa ATVs for sale or other Chinese brands, then be sure to buy one from a reputable dealer. Check out their parts supply chain. Do your homework up front and then make a choice that will offer you the best deal for your hard earned money. Thankfully, you can get a lot of machine for your money. Just be careful. Make sure they really do have parts available, and try to find other people that bought the particular Chinese ATV brand you are considering, and see what their experience has been.
