It is most likely a private label for one of the big Chinese manufacturers.
They will make vehicles for companies here and put any name on them the buyer wants. I could not find any real info on them other than advertising.

Be very careful buying an ATV from an on-line seller. Make sure you find out what the warranty covers: some will cover parts but no labor.
So if you aren't a decent backyard mechanic you will have to pay someone to install any parts they supply. And also make sure they carry a full line of such parts. An ATV that sets for 6 months waiting on a part to arrive from China is pretty much worthless.

I have heard some "horror" stories about online ATV purchases, so beware. You would be much better off finding a seller locally, so it is possible to get "in their face" if there is a major problem.

They are a local company with a show room and give a 6 month full /2 yr. limited warranty. They are a supplier of parts and repair facility, however like you said what good is that if it ends up being a machine I cant ride. I have a friend that bought a Manco Talon from Tractor Supply and it has been broke almost since he bought it. Thanx for the advice.
Maybe I should just quit being cheap and buy a Honda.
Thanx again, John
