The competition debut of the Alta Motors Redshift MX bike by Josh Hill was a highlight of the 2016 Red Bull Straight Rhythm. Designed and produced in Northern California, the electric machine is the first true attempt by anyone to take a gasoline burner in motocross. Hill proved that the bike is competitive with his runs in the 250 class and by the end of the night, the MX world was abuzz about the future of the sport.
Before the gates dropped at the Straight Rhythm we learned all about the bike from Alta’s CTO and Co-Founder, Derek Dorresteyn. A technical wizz that knows the ins and outs of MX, Dorresteyn shared the details and plans for the company. If you’re interested in getting one for yourself, contact the company and put your name on a waiting list. Bikes are currently shipping to customers and production will increase in the coming months.
