Alta Motors Redshift ST; An Electric Street Tracker Motorcycle Concept

Written By:

A startup electric bike manufacturing company called Alta Motors has recently unveiled the Redshift ST. The new model is an electric street tracker motorcycle, which shares some components with its siblings; Redshift SM and Redshift MX.

The Redshift ST features new seat, handlebars, sub-frame and carbon fibre flat track wheels. The suspension duties are carried out WP shocks. The 19-inch BSR carbon fibre flat track wheels are shod with purposely designed rubbers.

The rear WP suspension has been lowered to bring the seat height down to 31.5 inches. The marque has not revealed the technical specification yet but we can expect the model ST model to be equipped with Redshift SM's engine.

The Redshift SM draws power from a water-cooled 14,000rpm motor which is coupled with a 5.8kWh battery pack. The motor produces around 40bhp of power and 49Nm of torque. The company also claims that the model has a riding range of 80km on a single charge.

The battery can be fully charged in three hours. The Redshift SM has a claimed top speed of 105km/h. The startup firm will also reveal more details about the Redshift ST in the coming month.

Alta Motors was founded by Derek Dorresteyn, Marc Fenigstein and Jeff Sand. The firm has also raised $17 million in funding and the investors include Tesla co-founders Marc Tarpenning and Martin Eberhard. Alta also launched its first model, the Redshift in 2015 and it was the only all-electric supermoto/motocross bike then.
