Different suspensions on all models.

Never understood the negativity/hating on these bikes. If they’re not for you then fine, carry on with whatever floats your boat instead of raining on someone’s parade. I guess it’s fear that they could eventually take over and force a persons favorite ... more »

Chevy Express packed with one full size and one big wheel mini and all sorts of other adventure “stuff”. I love it, vans are the perfect moto hauler

Very fair evaluation, I completely agree.

Added reply in a thread Alta thermal limiting....Any one notice it before? 8/29/2018 4:06 AM

I believe I’d contact Alta on that one and let them know what you are experiencing. That sounds unusual.

Added reply in a thread ALTA OWNERS: Would you do it again? 8/24/2018 9:19 AM

Well that certainly depends. A 10 year old gas bike with hundreds of hours you might have a hard time getting much back out of, so it depends how you look at it. Right now I’m told the Alta battery would set you back $3200, in ten years who knows. There ... more »

Added reply in a thread ALTA OWNERS: Would you do it again? 8/24/2018 6:35 AM

Thats not exactly true. It would be best practice to NOT run a lithium ion completely down. The software in the bike is supposed to keep the battery in a safe range so when it’s “dead” it’s not really dead anyway. So the short answer is charging between ... more »

They rate the battery at 1000 charge cycles before a noticeable decrease in range would be realized. Dare I say very few people would ever come close to those kind of hours. Even at half that it would take me close to 10 years at the rate I put hours ... more »

Cool. What kind of ride times do you get out of it?

Added reply in a thread 2018 Alta MXR vs 2019 Crf 250R 8/3/2018 10:51 AM

Seems like the average range guys are getting off-road is 30-35 miles. So many variables come into play on range but I’d say figure low so you aren’t disappointed. There is a lot of confusion with the chargers... they both run on 120v or 240v. The “rapid” ... more »

Added reply in a thread Question: Charge port on Alta? J1772? 8/3/2018 7:13 AM

Only the SM has a onboard charger, and even then you can’t go directly to a J1772 without an adapter. For an EXR you would have to bring your charger AND adapter so not practical at all. Here is some discussion on the subject if interested... https://altaownersforum.com/threads/240v-plug-to-110v-plug-adapter.205/ ... more »

Added reply in a thread When will the Alta... 7/27/2018 12:27 PM

I think it will be years yet till a top level pro is racing one, mainly because I think it will be years before the AMA decides what to do with them.

It’s also worth noting that there can be charging opportunities at tracks that you might not realize. Many tracks have RV sites with electric services you may be able to utilize or there may be outlets at service buildings you can get permission to use. ... more »

They have this IP67 rating which means they are supposed to be able to be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes without an issue. Pressure washing mine is less trouble than my gas bikes, no exhaust plugs or air boxes to concern yourself ... more »

Map 4 is what I will use if I need that “shot out of a cannon” feel. There are other owners who feel map 4 is too much but for me it’s perfect for a tight SX style situation. The torque really compensates for the lack of a clutch.

It feels like an ordinary throttle, perhaps a bit more precise as there is no potential cable slack issues, but definitely returns as you would expect.

Haven’t heard any talk of anything changing yet on the MXR. Doesn’t mean there won’t be.
