“The impressive Alta Motors electric motocross bike was a sensation at the Red Bull Straight Rhythm – the combination of Josh Hill and the Redshift MX blew fans away, and the battery-powered beast has started to rack up a lot of fans too.

So when the cool people at Alta Motors said come and pay us a visit, we said hell yeah!”

The second video (below) is more detailed look at the machine with presentation from Alta’s CTO, and features a test drive on the track.

In the next stage, Alta Motors will begin production of SM bike and then also some 1-2 new models.

    Ecxiting thing!

    It is good to see someone give Zero a bit of competition. Victory sure has been a huge disappointment in that regard. They bought out Brammo and since then have done nothing with the Empulse. 2017 is just a few days away and they still show the Empulse as a 2016 model.

      Alta doesn’t compete with Zero.

      Both companies sell different class of bikes. In fact the Alta guys would probably feel insulted if you told them they compete with Zero bikes ….

        Oh, I dunno. Alta’s bikes are obviously (a lot) more track capable, but I could see some overlap in the street market where a lot of supermoto sales are found. I think Zero has the advantage there, as even their pretendy supermoto FXS has more energy on board than the Alta bike.

    Great bikes … unfortunately the price kills the enthusiasm rather quickly. I mean 15K US$ is not something many weekend dirt bikers can afford.

    I don’t think you will find many people disagreeing with the advantages. There’s many, except for the one … price. It’s such a huge gap that it’s a question between riding on not riding …

    Yo mxs

    $15,000.00 to win the Holeshot, now that is priceless.
    Your odds of going home with a victory, a trophy, and a cash prize just increased exponentially.
    And for the weekend rider, electrons will always cost less than gasoline.
    MX speeds at mountain biker quiet will keep all the other trail users happy as well.
    Just another perspective for you to consider.
    Cheers.

  5. Alta called me, since I have a deposit on an MX bike.

    Maybe it’s ready?
