Agressive Pricing on Alta Redshift Models
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:26:30 PM »

Hey Everyone,

I received a new price sheet from Alta and wanted to give you a quick update. The Redshift has proven to be a very competitive model in 2017. But, the major factor holding many consumers back is the price. Alta has adopted a very aggressive pricing structure In an effort to put the Electric platform within reach of more riders....

So, without further ado:

2018 Alta MX $10,495 (reduced from $14,995)
2018 Alta EX $12,995 (reduced from $15,495)
2018 Alta SM $13,495 (reduced from $15,495)

All offroad models (EX and MX) will require a charger, you will two options for this:

Base (currently shipping with the Alta MX and EX) $499
Upgraded (will have some additional features) $799

All SM models will continue to feature onboard charging and do not require a separate charger purchase.

Alta has also given some incentives for 2017 models as well (these prices may vary depending on dealer) here is what we have available:

2017 Alta Redshift MX (Demo with 66 hours) $8,900 (includes charger)
2017 Alta Redshift MX (brand new) $9,900 (includes charger)

To give you an idea of how competitive these prices are, the 2018 KTM Freeride E-XC will likely retail for over $13K! The Alta Redshift, in almost every way, is a superior motorcycle for a lot less money!

I will do my best to keep you updated on any changes for 2018 as soon as they become available. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the Redshift lineup or would like to schedule a private demo.

Do you want to edit the ex price to the same as the Alta website?

How about a diesel electric hybrid two wheel drive like the military?

Can the Mx one be delivered with an 18 inch wheel?

Whenever I see a huge drop in prices for new electric motorcycles, I start thinking about Brammo and Victory and then wonder what comes next.  ???

Having gone through the Brammo experience, yup this is exactly what I thought. Really rooting for Alta though, they seem to have a great product, hope there's enough of a market for it.

Its pretty much a standard, the lower the price the more potential buyers.  Maybe the price will come down enough to where I will be thinking to buy one and not just interested in the thing.

Hmm, hope it works, as an owner of the SM that paid almost full price for the bike just months ago, I find it a little upsetting but if it helps the brand move forward, I'm all for it.  When I was looking to sell my SM, I spoke with my dealer about doing a trade for the EX and he claimed to have 3 SM's on the floor and that he wouldn't be interesting in mine so sales might need a little jump start, hope it works for the brand, they have an exciting product and mine has been faultless.

Thinking about purchasing the EX.
I'll be the first and only owner in the area.
Worried about repairs, spare parts and updating the bike's firmware.
My Zero do need these things from time to time. Any known issues or dealer's maintanance I should know about?

In addition, are all parts Alta specific? For example, foot pegs, sprockets and so on? Do they share these components with other brands?

I would imagine that other than the frame and electric drivetrain, all remaining parts are commonly sourced. Alta is a small company, it would be pretty sill to design those parts in-house.

I also thought the same about the Zero, but than found out that even the foot pegs are Zero specific and can not be found elsewhere..

Hey Judas....  Appears that you are in a position to shed some light ????  A good, honest state of the union would be valuable for Alta and potential customers....  I feel like I got hoodwinked by Polaris and will never buy from them again....
