Brammo shows production e-motorcycles

2012 Brammo Empulse
Brammo, the American electric motorcycle company, has showed off the production versions of its for enthusiasts' electric motorcycle, the Empulse. There will also a carbon-fibre panelled version, the R which will go on sale shortly, followed by the base Empulse next year. The motorcycle uses a 10kWH motor to offer a 160kmph-odd top speed and a city range of 200km, or a highway range of about 80km.
Marchesini supply the wheels, the shocks are Marzocchi and Sachs and the motorcycle looks neat. Brammo also installed a 6-speed gearbox to retain the feel of a normal motorcycle. The prices? The base Brammo is approximately the same price as a Ducati Panigale in the US, the R is another $2000. As an aside, Polaris, the ATV phenom, owns an undisclosed stake in Brammo
