For the launch, the company only released a handful of photos, but we took our trusty Pentax and this writer's rusty shooting skills and tried to capture the sense of what it's like to see these machines in person. You can judge the results for yourselves in the attached gallery.
What's better than looking at a motorcycle on its stand? Seeing it in action. Though initially unavailable at the launch, Alta has now released footage of its test mule taking flight (literally) and tearing up a pair on tracks – one dirt, one asphalt. It's a bit brief and we can't hear the helical gears whir or the high-RPM motor whine, but we are left with the sense that this is one capable bike.
While we look forward to hearing the various views of reviewers, and perhaps even grasping the handle bars ourselves, for now we'll have to content ourselves with the video that awaits your eyes below.
