BRP acquired part of Alta Motors assets
BRP acquired certain assets of Alta Motors as part of its plan to explore alternative energy sources
February 20, 2019, Valcourt, Quebec. BRP has announced the purchase of certain assets of Faster Faster, Inc. (Alta Motors). BRP has a long history of interest in new technologies and alternative energy sources for the motorsport industry.
The deal acquired intellectual property rights, patents, and some physical assets from a company that manufactures and designs electric motorcycles. BRP was given the opportunity to do further research in this booming industry. BRP is not interested in resuming production of Alta Motors and is not responsible.
BRP is actively promoting innovations that can improve the driving experience in motor vehicles. BRP has already started serial production of side-by-side electric ATVs, created an electric and hybrid prototype of the Can-Am Spyder tricycle, and joined the development of electric karts with Rotax.
As a reminder, BRP owns brands such as Ski-Doo and Lynx (snowmobiles), Can-Am (ATVs), Sea-Doo (jet skis), Evinrude outboards and Rotax engines.
