A decision

A reader of this has asked me what I believed the options are instead of a Beta Alp 4.0. Of there are a myriad trail to choose from but I’ll an outline of the decision process I through.

To begin with, are you starting from? I had a well-loved Serow and a much maligned Kanguro. Both are old designs and not The Serow is tiny and very to handle and is well known to be than the sum of its parts.

However mine was showing its was painfully slow on long and finally I was bored with it. The is just an indifferent machine, work and best ignored for the of this post!

So to improve on the I wanted something that was easy to handle but with a more grunt for both on and off so perhaps a modern DOHC 250 or an 350. A bit newer so that weren’t worn out but perhaps with a little quirk to the orange tide. Naturally it had to be start and also affordable.

Let’s think of a quick

DR350, all old and many possibly out.

DR400Z, a good a number of add-ons available, a bit for trials?

XR400, supposedly an machine, lots of add-ons, not start unless you spend on an upgrade

KTMs, all excellent, light machines but owners seem to the service schedules, a bit of a cliche?

New a 250cc now, but not quite as thought out as the venerable XT225

a possibility, a bit more umph, all grey imports, a bit tall?

Alp excellent LDT machine, poor lack of power and road

Alp 4.0, heavy, mediocre quality, few add-ons, dubious costly new

Husaberg/Husquavana, like only more so?

I’d a review of the Alp 4.0 in TBM which was fairly They specifically commented on road manners and good low control but that conversely the couldn’t cope with speed use. The DR350 is well respected and importantly that engine-related parts can be from your local dealer.

I watched eBay for a few and a 4.0 appeared with low mileage, no use and at a significant reduction in price new. So fate put me in that

To date I feel the biggest with the Alp 4.0 are its excessive weight and average suspension. However it is a compromise between a machine will do hundreds of kilometres per day on and one which will climb up a bank when requested.

I think I’d pay new price for an Alp 4.0 as due to unpopularity and lack of ‘credability’ values are modest.
