There is something unprecedented going on here with the Alta Redshift EX. No, it's not because it is a street-legal, electric dirt bike. It is unprecedented to have a closed-course, competition-only model become a street-legal machine with so little work. You don't see any of the Japanese manufactures turning their MX bikes into dual-sports. The European makers are closer but they are typically off-road bikes going to a road-ready version. The Alta Redshift EX is unchanged from the MX, other than softer suspension settings and the necessary street legal hardware (lights, blinkers, horn, mirrors). Being an electric bike has its advantages here. There is no extra hoops to jump through with CARB or the EPA. No massive exhaust can to put on, no evap canister to hide somewhere, and no noise regulations that come close to being surpassed.
