Brammo Empulse 100% Electric Motorcycle

Brammo, the makers of the enertia electric motorcycle are releasing what I consider to be a ground breaking Electric Motorcycle and here is why I think so:

  • Most electric motorcycles these days leave a lot to the imagination as far as design is concerned
  • Knowing you can only reach 60 mph is dis-heartening
  • Knowing you can only go 19 miles before you have to turn back around is even worse

The Brammo Empulse looks a lot closer to a conventional streetfighter or modern sportbike then any electric motorcycle I have seen yet. Plus it can go approx 100 miles before needing a recharge. It can also go over 100mph if you so please. And last but not least, they are implementing a clutch and 6 speed transmission to maximize the high torque electric motor. All great reasons that would persuade me believe that this motorcycle will be referenced in the future as one of the firsts that could compete with today’s market. It does still cost a bit more then a regular motorcycle but I could see BMW or Ducati riders purchasing these as well as the triumph crowd. For as loud as this bike looks, it is whisper quiet.. so hopefully that is not a deal breaker for motorcycle enthusiasts who like it loud.

What this bike has that the ‘zero’ bike does not:

  • good looks
  • speeds over 60mph
  • longer range possibilities
