Ive found that i just use my sense of speed on all my bikes now, both electric and gas. It took all of about 3 laps to get used to jumping with electric.

Lack of clutch is actually a luxury! The throttle mapping on the Alta is so well done that you feel like you have a connection between your right wrist and the back tire. There no lagging build up of power that you get even on a 450. On the flip side ... more »

Triumph acquired mini electric dirtbike company OSET. Could this be an indication of their commitment to electric MX? https://www.vurbmoto.com/triumph-announces-it-has-acquired-electric-two-wheeler-manufacturer-oset/

People are getting wayyy too hung up on the maximum claimed power output of the Stark Varg while ignoring the fact that the power characteristics of an electric motor are highly tuneable. This isnt Josh Hill's hillclimb yamaha with a monster street bike ... more »

Dude ive raced many local races that were 18minutes +1 lap (which is long for local races, usually they are only 4 laps) and my Alta MXR used about 70% battery with me pushing as hard as i could the entire time. The Varg has a bit better battery design ... more »

The throttle control on electric is more precise than gas. Your right wrist feels connected to the back tire, and the power is amazingly manageable. You could get max power at any time by wacking the throttle WOT, but power delivery can also be progressive ... more »

I can answer this from the prospective of an alta owner. The difference in jumping electric vs gas is a couple things, but the speed is the same. I think "needing more speed" coming into a jump is an illusion due to electric having no transmission and ... more »

The bike looks phenomenal. Really cool that the charger is intergrated into the bike stand, and it comes with the bike! I cant wait to ride it. ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️

Cahuilla creek is almost the perfect example. Flows so well (speed pretty consistent) , loamy dirt, elevation change, nice mixture of fast and slow corners, floater jumps, nothing crazy difficult.

Gutted for Dylan. Leaves the SX season early to focus on outdoor prep to defend his title, only to have that effort pretty much thrown out the window on press day the week before the opener. Imagine how frustrating that would be. He was looking really ... more »

No false neutrals with an electric bike. I hit false neutral going through a rhythm section at Pala in 2018 on my KX125 and took a trip to endonesia (thankfully not the hospital). The next week I bought my Alta MXR. People can hate all they want on electric ... more »

I guess he since deleted the post, but a few days ago he posted a video on a different Yamaha with a caption like "feeling sendy today" .

The MX had 4CS (i call them the 4 crap shitty). The MXR came with AER48. I really like the suspension on my MXR with RaceTech GoldValve and pro mx valving.

If the bike ends up only being on par with the Alta, thats not a bad thing. The Alta MXR is already capable for 90+% of the riders out there. That said, the info that has been publicly released thus far suggests it will perform better than the MXR, plus ... more »

That's a lot of wear on the ignition cover for "under 10 hrs total on the bike". Care to explain?
