Top Gear: Hunting Bigfoot on a pair of Alta Redshift MX bikes


During last night’s episode of Top Gear, Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris headed into the Californian wilderness to hunt for Big Foot, and test a load of off-road vehicles in the process.

 

Designed as the electric equivalent of a modern 250, the Redshift MX is just as capable its MX2 petrol-powered equivalent – and last night, the lads from Top Gear took to the trails, in search of the Big Foot. And it impressed, with Chris Harris suggesting it’s the most fun he’s ever had on an electric vehicle.
