The April 2017 issue of Cycle World
magazine contains three items regarding electric motorcycles. The first is a letter on page 6, titled "Noise Management" by Barry O'Neal of Fort Wroth, Texas discussing motorcycle noise and his silent Victory Empulse TT.
The second item is an odd two-page article by Kevin Cameron titled "Not So Fast" on page 28. I read it, but I didn't quite understand it. Something to do with electric vehicles being the future and then kind of going off the rails when discussion generating electric power and the advantages of modern IC engines.
But the big article was the 8-page one in the middle of the magazine, starting on page 46, titled "Unplug + Play" regarding Alta Motors' new Redshift MX motorcycle, written by Steve Anderson, which contains some nice photos of the Redshift, including an interesting expanded drawing of its motor drive parts. The article presents the Redshift in a good light, while not going overboard with praise. I recommend buying this issue of Cycle World
if you are interested in the MX. My only complaint is that they didn't review or test the ST or SM street models. Hopefully that will be rectified sometime in the future.
