“So much power it’ll wheelie off the throttle at any speed.” If you’re anything like me, you’re a bit sick of the hyperbole that makers of electric motorcycles have been slinging for the last few years. There’s talk of instantaneous torque, practical ranges and performance on par with (small) ICE bikes, but the reality has only been overpriced products that are slow, massively overstate their real world ranges and are, well, just plain crappy. So when Marc, BRD’s CEO, started slinging... adjectives at this supermoto prototype prior to Sean and I riding it in Malibu, I was pretty skeptical. The thing is, he was absolutely right.

"The co-founder and chief executive of BRD Motorcycles, Marc Fenigstein, said the company wants to become a brand as strong as Porsche in its category."

"Timed at over three seconds quicker on the BRD than the KTM (1:08-1:09 range for a personal Best Lap Time figure), the performance component certainly exists for the RedShift" "I have actually ridden the future of motorcycling…and I like it." "BRD’s package on the RedShift is so well-polished with its engineering and components, what you are left riding is a machine that when refined will satisfy your every craving, while opening up a whole new experience for riders."
