In case anyone besides me is interested, here is a comparison of the three ALTA models using the data on their website as of today (06Oct2017). I had read elsewhere that the 2018 models would not have the 4CS WP forks, but current specs show the 4CS on the MX and EX bikes.

I love everything about these alta's and might have considered buying one but not until they get rid of those POS 4CS. :D

The 4CS forks are not as good as the new AER forks, which are simply stellar, but after many years spent doing testing and development with the 4CS forks, I have learned how to do away with the initial harshness and keep them from falling through the stroke too quickly. All it took was a handful of years of my life and 1000+ changes to the internals, including remanufacturing some of the internal components. ::duh:: Working pretty darn well now, but I would gladly pay a little extra in the cost of the bike to start with the AER forks rather than the 4CS.


We will have our first Enduro (EX) model very soon, already have the SuperMoto (SM), and let me tell you, the SM is the best hooligan bike ever. And so quiet you can get away with being a hooligan on it. ::cheers:: ::up::

The EX and SM both have an on board charger, so all you need is a standard extension cord to plug them in for a charge. My personal experience shows the top speed listed by Alta is about 6-7mph lower than actual, and all the Alta's like taller gearing than stock, so add about 15mph to the top speed with a gearing change. The bikes have plenty of torque to pull taller gearing. :)

If you still have yet to ride an Alta, you need to experience them for yourself. Crazy good. ::applause::
