A friend bought an Alta mxr to ride on his lawn with the grand kids in 2019 and its still in like new condition. Never out of mode 1 and never ran hard at all. He is ocd in a great way too so its showroom like condition. I just bought it from him with lots of spares he got just in case like plastics, seats and chain slide. I have to pick it up 18 hours away though. I could get it shipped but going to make it a little vacation and visit some friends. I still want a new 450 too and nothing is better than the sound of fuel combustion but this is going to be fun too.

That is bad ass, also a good investment. I'd imagine that the Altas will hold their value very well.

Very nice! Congrats!

Question, is that a used bike or new? It looks to be like in new mint condition!

Actually, I'm surprised to see so many really fresh looking Altas keeping in mind they went bust, but maybe there were many in the warehouse unsold when they went belly up? Or Alta users not really pushing them, rather bragging wink

An old man with grandkids with ebikes and a huge lawn in a gated community. Thank you for your concern.

It only has 84 miles on it and it was his only offroad bike he ever rode. He keeps his stuff in great condition. Thanks for the replys everyone.

Here was my lawn in a gated community a few years back. This was hidden from neighbors and was so fun. I could only imagine if i had this bike for my lawn back then. Now the sky is the limit for my 38 acres.

Got to ride one at Milestone MX years ago when they were doing demo days. Such a blast. Really wish they could have made it more affordable at MSRP, I think that's what killed them. Hope it's a great time for you.

It sucks people are so ignorant still about electric bikes. They are very cool and I'd love to have one. I don't remember if it was the redbull thing or what but KTM pretty much said they went straight to targeting little kids for this very reason. Older people can't handle change and if the kids learn to like them now then in the future the will keep buying them
