We love motorcycles. The best ones make you tingle when you look at them, giggle when you ride them, and even scare you just a little bit. We love going fast. And we love finding new ways and new places to go fast. Our goal is to create motorcycles that are easier to ride fast than anything else out there. We build electric bikes because we love instant throttle response and flat, endless torque. Because we want the next bike we purchase to be faster than our last one.
The first sketches of the Redshift began in San Francisco in 2007. Two riding buddies, Derek Dorresteyn and Jeff Sand, with a few decades of fabrication, engineering and design expertise between the both of them, fell in love with the idea of the smooth, perfectly responsive torque curve. Naturally, they started kicking around the possibilities for building their own electric motorcycle— a motorcycle that could be faster and more rideable than their gas bikes.
