The Future of Motocross? Electric Bike To Make Pro Debut | Red Bull Straight Rhythm


Could this be the clean future of MX? Even without the gnarly growl of a combustion engine, there's no doubt this bike rips. This year Straight Rhythm will feature a unique entry, as Josh Hill will try his hand on an Alta Motors Redshift MX in the Lites Class, becoming the first rider ever to race an electric motorcycle in a national-level motocross event. Although facing off against a 250cc gas-powered bike seems a daunting task, Alta’s Redshift MX boasts a groundbreaking electric drivetrain that delivers over 500 lb-ft of instant torque at the rear wheel from 0 RPM and 40 peak horsepower. The bike has already proven itself more than capable, as rider Kurt Nicoll rode one to victory in the EnduroCross series earlier this year.
