    The Storm Bee is out!

    Maybe watch the video then, might give you some insight to what they have to say. He does mention the Alta is heavy, doesn't mention the Storm Bee is heavy. Doesn't bash the Alta, doesn't even compare them. Mentions the Storm Bee is his favorite between the 3 e-dirt bikes, that's as close to a...

    The Storm Bee is out!

    Ebikezilla in Quebec has the Storm Bee listed, but not in stock yet, for USD $7,399.99. https://ebikezilla.com/en/sur-ron-storm-bee/13000-electric-motocross-sur-ron-storm-bee-off-road-sr-003-mx-sur-ron.html?SubmitCurrency=1&id_currency=2 Interesting that there is no Storm Bee info is coming...

    The Storm Bee is out!

    The Altas are heavy, they're porkers, so what's the problem? That he didn't also call the Storm Bee heavy? Ok, big deal. He mentions some negatives of the Storm Bee, doesn't like the seat, bars were too high. I don't understand all the cry babying about these reviews. I'm interested in...

    The Storm Bee is out!

    Agreed. Easily dealt with by some type of guard though. Not a show stopper for me if I was shopping for one.

    The Storm Bee is out!

    So David Knight and Geoff Ballard are being paid to provide positive reviews of the Storm Bee? Seriously? Is it possible they actually like the bike? The riding vids look legit to me. The bikes are doing what dirt bikes do. For the skeptics, what in the vids is not legit?

    The Storm Bee is out!

    Interesting. And I’ve never heard of him, guess I was living under a (Aussie) rock: 12 ISDE medals, 3 US national offroad titles, I think he knows what he’s talking about. Interesting that both he and David Knight really like the Storm Bee. Ballard's Offroad Race Team & History | MXstore

    When will one of the majors bring an E-bike to the market

    California is already very strict about monitoring what people are riding off-road in CA, lots of rangers and patrols, heavy fines for riding illegal bikes. I don’t see people bringing non-compliant bikes into CA. CA already has their hated red sticker/green sticker off-road bikes system which...

    When will one of the majors bring an E-bike to the market

    Exactly. KTM and the FIM are already setting the stage for this. At the Supercross races, the minis are now on KTM SX-E-5 electrics, and they added an even younger class for the ankle biters on the Stacyc electric balance bikes. The Stacyc races are hilarious, giant kid heads bobbing all over...

    When will one of the majors bring an E-bike to the market

    I bought my MXR a couple of years ago because for me life is too short to wait around for something that may or may not happen. I decided if I bought the Alta and one of the majors dropped an Alta killer and the value of my Alta plummeted that I would be ok with that. Just like when I've...

    Bad Bug with a Bad Bike

    Gotta beef up those wheelie bars a bit, Lol. I've been fantasizing about an EV West Baja Bug conversion lately. Expensive and completely impractical, but so much fun. Hadn't considered that I could haul the Alta with one.

    Installing the KYB SSS fork on the Alta Redshift

    I installed '15 KTM 500 EXC triples/stem, offset is 20 mm. '18 Alta MXR stock triples/stem offset is 22 mm, can be set to 18 mm. I didn't notice any difference with the offsets doing the casual trail riding that I do. Its an easy swap, I detailed it here started with post #13 if you're...

    This thread shows an Alta with a KTM subframe, this is what I will do if my subframe ever bites the dust, but I would try to add the side number plates to cover the open area around the shock: Subframe modification/replacement Looks like a relatively easy fab job to weld the KTM subframe onto...

    Installing the KYB SSS fork on the Alta Redshift

    Well I would say that is HUGE! Lol. The KTM/Husky triples swap is easy peasy. You do end up with a slightly different offset, and its not adjustable like the Alta, but I think the trade off of getting the SSS forks makes all that a non-issue.

    Installing the KYB SSS fork on the Alta Redshift

    If you used the bolt on KTM ‘13-‘15 triples I wonder if you could avoid modifying the spacers, caliper brackets, bolts, etc when installing the KYB SSS forks on the Alta? Conversely, I wonder if the Yamaha triples would bolt onto the Alta headstock, then use everything from the SSS forks setup...

    I've joined the Ranks

    Hmm, I have an extra wheelset I've been wondering what to do with... And to the OP, welcome, great community here, you'll love the Alta.

    Mortch E-motos and YZ250F Conversion

    Right on Bayo, some beautiful parts of NJ out there. And 5kw with a 4 sp tranny, sounds interesting.

    Mortch E-motos and YZ250F Conversion

    Bayo, as a former/fellow east coaster, born in the Bronx, raised in North NJ, I'm counting on you to go see this Kolter Banshee thing and take it for a test ride. And report back to us immediately. Like before you drive home. Lol.

    The Storm Bee is out!

    Did you watch the David Knight video? He really likes it. The riding he's doing on it looks fairly gnarly. It looks way more capable then a Zero FX. From what I've been learning about the Storm Bee it looks like a budget Alta. Not as powerful, not as much range, about the same weight, not as...
