    Hi im thinking about buying a new bike and im wondering if anybody has got any experience with the apollo/hyeng brand? I'd like to have your opinon on build quality /construction etc on these and also the availability of parts. The place where im about the order from does'nt sell pre-assembled ones. What should you think about in general when buying a bike on the internet?
    The only bad thing i managed to spot is that the side covers seems to be threaded to the lower part of the tank

    Top speed is only 30 mph that would bother me…..they come with a restrictive on the two stroke and seems its restricted to either 25,30 or 45km/h the top speed is only 30mph? What’s even odder is that it has a six speed the Norwegian site says its limited to 25km/h and with a six speed? That’s 15.5 miles an hour and your shifting through six gear to get there?

    I think if it only goes 30mph then it does not need a 6-speed and for the price you could buy three 50cc scooters.

    For less you could get a similar 125cc 4-stroke and get better performance.


    What does strypt mean…translates to strangled? They have (strypt) next to the Maxhastighet which they have at 25km/h? yeah that makes sense…

    If you know how to unrestricted it and you can get away with doing that then maybe it has something more then 45km/hr and then the six-speed would have some value…but I think it would scream like a banshee up to 50mph maybe? But its interesting because the sixth gear could drop the rpm and unrestricted it could be ok….but its expensive.
