I was just looking at your website spec sheet and I saw something that, at least I didn't notice before, which is 120 Ft-Lbs of torque.  I could have sworn it said 36 Ft-Lbs before.  From the videos I saw I knew it had to be more than 36 but 120 is very impressive, well done.
I also saw very quick charging times on a 220V source.  Can you say what voltage the bike runs at?
I saw the video of that Red Bull race which was pretty wild by itself, I've never seen that format, sort of a motocross drag race.  Good showing for most anyone but your first head to head with gas bikes with 100 years of tweaking behind them means you'll be winning out soon.

Thank you for the nice words!
The straight rhythm is indeed the perfect format for electric, and we are happy we had a good showing. I can tell you the KTM dirt race director was not a happy camper.
On the torque figure, it depends where you measure. To put it in layman's terms, my personal record is 3.5 seconds 0-60mph (and I am not the best starter in the company).
Finally regarding the voltage, we're at 350V (http://www.altamotors.co/the-alta-pack/)
