2018 Alta Motors Redshift MXR

2018 Alta Motors Redshift MXR

The motocross bike gets big on power and range

The Brisbane, California based Alta Motors designs and manufactured the most advanced electric motorcycles in the industry. Starting in 2010, the firm has come a long way in establishing itself building bikes that prove to be better off-roaders than the petrol-powered counterparts. Until now, their motorcycle line-up included a Supermoto (SM), an Enduro (EX) and a Motocross (MX) electric off-road bikes.

Now, the makers are stepping up their game and have launched a brand new motorcycle called the Redshift MXR. All their current bikes badly needed an upgrade from their 250cc equivalent electric motors that only did 42 horsepower and 120 foot-pounds of torque. Luckily, the chaps at Alta have done just that.

The 2018 Redshift MXR Motocross model ups the ante in all departments and adds a significant change with its electronics package and battery-motor combo. It boasts of more power, less weight, better recharge times, and better heat management to keep the competition in check.

The bike envisioned here is an electric street-tracker model that captures Harley’s values onto Alta’s Redshift platform.

Alta Motors Adds A New Model to Its Lineup

Adding to its electric stable, Alta Motors unveils the Street Tracker, a sibling to its Redshift lineup. Alta Motors is another of these bike companies that sprang from the riding enthusiasm between a couple of friends, namely Jeff Sand and Derek Dorresteyn. It’s also another of these bike builders who recognize the need to protect the environment, though they try to play the performance card and say they’re really just after the power and flat torque curve associated with electric-drive vehicles. Sure man, whatever you say.
