History of the Apollo Delta Jet 2
The Apollo Monsoon is the predecessor of the Delta Jet 2. It has a similar body shape, and similar all around except an upgraded/beefed up front fork and upgraded cooling system. The Monsoon is a great design and was also be fitted with the lower HP ROTAX 582 two stroke 65 hp and a larger ProfiTL 14.5 meter topless wing. This was the basic design of the Delta Jet 2 evolved from.
Before the monsoon was the Apollo Delta Jet. This was the first fully faired trike where the 100 HP Rotax 912 was installed and tested. Delta Jet was the flagship of high performance trikes introduced and imported into the US market 7 years ago. It is still one of the nicest looking, streamlined trikes in existance. It is overall a smaller and more compact trike.
