To us, the Japanese all look alike. When you've seen one Japanese dirt bike, you've seen them all. Water-cooled engines, maintenance intensive power valves, rear wheel-mounted disc bra kes and complicated shock linkages. Scramble the logos, change the colors and even their own mothers couldn't tell these bikes apart. At ATK, we knew there must be a better way. So we built a better bike. And kept it simple. No technology for the sake oftechnology. Instead ofa bulky water-cooled engine, ATK gives you the dependable, air-cooled Rotax power plant. No power valves to mess with. No radiator, no hoses. Nothing toget hot about. Our unique rear brake features a lightweight counter-shaft disc that saves five pounds of unsprung rear wheel weight. Five pounds. Plus, our side-mounted, maintenancefree rear shock combined with our patented Anti Chain Torque Eliminator led Cycle World to say, "the suspension is almost magical." And instead of puttingthe air filter under the seat, inthe way ofshocks and chains,we've elevated our one-of-a-kind Snorkel system up behind the front number plate. So you'll keep run ningsmoothly while the competition's busy playing submarine. At ATK we make it simple. We make itwork. We make it win.
