The word

Brammo Empulse

All three models answer the calls of many electric motorcycle purchasers and riders. The Empulse is race-inspired, sitting the rider lower and having a much higher top speed over the standard Brammo Enertia commuter.

The Empulse models will have top speeds over 100mph and the model numbers correspond to the intended range of the option.

The Empulse 6.0 has a 60 mile range, the 8.0 has an 80 mile range, and the 10.0 has a 100 mile range per charge. Prices start at $9,995 for the 6.0 and go up according to options and range.

Much of the design influence for the Empulse comes from the TTR race bike Brammo put on the track last year.

And so ...

So far, Brammo has not released more details such as battery configuration.
