Get ready to for this mouth-watering electric motorcycle (e-motorcycle) straight out of California. Alta Motors, which we’ve covered over a dozen times now, has introduced its Alta 2019 Redshift EXR.
Introducing The 2019 Alta Redshift EXR
Let’s get it out on the table — we love Alta Motors and its high-performance electric motorcycles. The release of its highly anticipated Redshift EXR means quiet and efficient multi-terrain e-motorcycle fun for practically anyone, all the way to the highest level of the sport.
It’s for performance enthusiasts, but is also intuitive and easy to ride so it equally suitable for beginners.
The Alta Motors Redshift platform made an astonishing global debut at the notorious Erzberg Rodeo, and it made history as the first electric bike to ever qualify for the main event. Ty Tremaine positioned his EXR on the front row in 43rd position, ahead of 457 other bikes, proving the EXR’s performance in the most extreme race conditions.
In fact, Ty had to say, “The Redshift EXR climbs ridiculously well. Even on the most treacherous trails, like the Iron Mountain, it’s really intuitive and easy to control. Hands down, this is the best enduro bike on the market and a lot of fun to ride.”
The 2019 Alta Redshift EXR can be ridden on local trails without much noise and certainly without obnoxious smells. An e-motorcycle is ideal for trial or dirt bike riding. It is impossible to stall, very surefooted, and has phenomenal torque. Simply put, Alta’s EXR is a purebred, single-track slayer that can also be ridden on normal streets. Personally, I’ll take one for Supermotard and another one for trails only.
2019 Alta Redshift EXR Packs A Serious Punch
You can expect serious performance with the 2019 Redshift EXR. The platform comes with the company’s R-Packhailed — the highest-energy density battery ever put on a motorcycle. Firmware and software have been upgraded in order to offer more range, increased power, and faster charge times.
Alta’s four unique performance maps allow the riders to change the power delivery, regenerative braking, and flywheel effects. Its Open loop “rate of change” torque control has a response rate of 5,000Hz, meaning you can ideally have the perfect torque for any given terrain.
