Just interested in some different thoughts. They are both on sale for a little over $1000. Heckler comes with a Fox Float R, Motolite comes with a Fox RP23. The riding here in Florida is mostly short technical climbs and decents.
Both are fantastic bikes. Moto-lite is more on the XC end and the Heckler is more on the AM/Freeride side of things. Titus Horst Link design is excellent (I own two Titus bikes and they pedal extremely well) but the Heckler pedals pretty damn well for a single pivot. Both bikes carve turns very well. You won't go wrong with either. I would pick based on your tendency to prefer more XC stuff or more AM/Freeride stuff.
