If you require a new battery (after the full two-year replacement warranty expires) and you surpass the 1,000 operating hour life of the battery it will cost you around $3,400.

The battery is a 10-minute swap with basic hand tools. The Owners/Repair manual for all Alta Redshift Models can be accessed for free on their website: https://www.altamotors.co/ownersmanual/

Depends on the rider and track conditions:

Here is what we are seeing with the previous generation Alta (i.e. less efficient):

Offroad enduro/singletrack - We are averaging 2 hours with a fast rider 3-4 hours with an intermediate rider
Motocross - A pro rider can get a 30-45 minute moto on a deep track, intermediate riders are getting close to 1.5-2 hours between charges.

The new R spec bike has the potential to get better times without any heat limiting issues.

Don't discount the advantage of having less rotating mass. This is not apparent in the specs but very noticeable when you are riding the bike.

It seems that way on the surface, but the Alta is less about "green" and more about better power and durability. The MXR was designed with performance in mind, the electric power plant was chosen based on power delivery. Better for the environment is just a happy coincidence.

Yes, we did use a skid plate. We worked with John Seehorn at SXS Slide Plates to develop an Alta specific full coverage skid plate with built-in linkage guard. We should have these available for sale ($169.99) very soon.
