    Alta R5.8 battery pack article

    The September/October issue of Motorcyclist magazine contains a two-page article, starting on page 32, titled "Alta R5.8 Pack". You get one big photo of the outside of the battery enclosure and 1/3 of a page of text. So you should be able to read the entire article at a magazine stand in about 2 minutes. Or you can buy the magazine for $12. Anyway, the point of the article is to let the reader know that the 2018 Alta battery modules have been upgraded with a unique battery chemistry designed to yield maximum energy release over longer periods at lower temperatures. This new battery pack will allow the Redshift MXR to produce 50 hp and 42 pound-feet of torque, 10 better than the older version, using the identical motor."

    The article also states: "The company won't say what's in the mix or exactly what it changed compared to the 2017 pack. Alta claims that information - and even the identity of the manufacturer of those cells - is proprietary."
    Richard - Current bikes: 2018 16.6 kWh Zero S, 2016 BMW R1200RS, 2011 Royal Enfield 500, 2009 BMW F650GS, 2005 Triumph T-100 Bonneville, 2002 Yamaha FZ1 (FZS1000N) and a 1978 Honda Kick 'N Go Senior.
