    It looks like they are seeking bankruptcy protection. It would explain the lack of dealer support, inability to get parts and owners issues getting warranty claims processed. Also explains why they have not released anything on 2020 models.

    I knew that getting one of these was a gamble, but I wasn't expecting them to go BK. Well I guess we will see if they emerge from it or end up liquidating.

    I can't say I am surprised. After the rotten experience I had with them, and the piece of junk they sold me. I had all kinds of lies told to me, and was lucky when they finally refunded my money, to avoid being drug into Lemon Law Court.

    Hopefully one of the other underdog companies will merge with them and get things straightened out. Just another example of poor management costing others many problems and finnancial losses.

    As a member of the Powersports industry I will just say weekend warriors should know what they are talking about before writing. While it's not my place to say exactly what happened here with the bankruptcy, things are not always as they appear. If you go to a website for "Sportsman Country ", you will find Odes has merged with one of the largest Powersports companies in the world. BTW, I love my Ravager If you do proper maintenance, you will not have problems.

    You will have fewer problems, it wont remove problems! Look carefully at the issues under consumer complaints and you will find a number of quality control issues, that preventative maintenence wont fix.

    Glenn, I reported the facts that are out there - Odes has filed for bankruptcy protection in a Texas court. Merger or not, this is a company with some problems. Take a good look on this site & you will see people that are having some major issues without recourse or resolution.

    As for the weekend warrior thing, I am done laughing so I will end there.

    Proper maintenance will stop the problems. Excuse me while I ROFLMAO. The one I had, I did not have time to do any maintenance except to change the oil the first time. It stayed in the shop, NOT getting fixed. Best advice DO NOT BUY ODES.
