Very interested in an EXR.
Have looked all over for detail on the charge port on the Alta.
Is it the standard J1772 port used on EV cars? There are several L2/J1772 chargers around my campus. They are also becoming more common around most everywhere.
This would definitely make the Alta a possibility.

So i'm no expert on Alta but am 99% sure the charger is off bike and would use 220 of some sort.Carrying the charger around might prove cumbersome,the charger for my free ride probably weighs 25 lbs.

Shoot Alta an email. They have good response time and should get back to you in a day or two.

Both chargers they offer plug into a standard outlet at 120 or 240 volts. Not sure if that is feasible where you are.


If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.

Only the SM has a onboard charger, and even then you can’t go directly to a J1772 without an adapter. For an EXR you would have to bring your charger AND adapter so not practical at all. Here is some discussion on the subject if interested...
