Twice the power will for just 12 percent more

Crediting batteries double the power of those with its Enertia Powercycle, announced today another leap for the budding electric industry in the form of its 2011 Plus.

The new model will and weigh essentially the same as the Enertia, but will incorporate a few and chassis tweaks, have options available, and – most – will offer a traveling of up to 80 miles on a charge, instead of the model’s claimed 40 or so.

At a projected the new bike will cost more. Assembly for the first units from Brammo’s Ore. assembly line is for some time in the spring, to company founder and CEO, Bramscher.

No increases over the 63 mph top speed will accompany the new however. In a nutshell, Bramscher that taller gearing cut unacceptably into off-the-line for the single-speeder.

Bramscher said changes to the existing platform an unspecified increase in fork and decrease in trail. New forged triple clamps will with the handlebar moved rearward. Last year’s shock is to be replaced with a Performance unit.

The source for the bike’s otherwise uptick in performance is a variation of lithium ion chemistry Brammo is calling “Brammo Power” These have the same to be used in the already announced sportbike. also due some early next year.

The Enertia Plus battery nominally rated at 6.0 kWh, actually push a few fractions than this number, and slot in place of the existing six-cell 3.1 kWh Valence-branded batteries.

“It out that we’ve essentially the energy density in the same Bramscher said. As a result, the Plus did not have to be re-engineered and is to beat the clean-sheet-design Empulse to

When it hits that not only will the Enertia boast twice the original’s it will also have 50% energy than its only competitor made by Zero

The 2010 Zero S Electric has a 4.0 kWh battery, top speed of 67 mph, of $9,995, and no significant changes for the model year have yet announced.

Bramscher said the Enertia – which underpowered or won Motorcycle.com ’s first-ever Electric Shootout over the Zero S – continue along side the Plus. If the new bike steals too sales from it, or other feedback deems it necessary, he they might stop it, or retrofit a lighter battery to it, or it for foreign markets or fleet Time will tell on question.

As a result of the Enertia Plus’ energy, Bramscher said he is many more converts to the motorcycling fold as the company assaults the primary reason why interested people still purchase the original Enertia.

pretty excited. we’ve had a lot of rides, we’ve had a lot of sales of the and it doesn’t take you too long on the interviews, finding out, the issue, why aren’t you writing a Bramscher said of those who sampled but did not buy.

“And you the number one reason people said no is 40,” he said of the approximate range.

In fact, some owners have higher range on a single the original Enertia’s advertised range is achieved under case circumstances, and was first following a very gentle cycle by federal testers. In many would consider to real world use, we and riders have depleted its in well under this

But that’s all history, Bramscher as he characterized feedback from customers for the original Enertia: miles, I think it’s most of the time, but I’d really to see 60,’” he said, “And so we heard that, we thought, let’s see how far can we go beyond 60.’”

As is true with fuel the new bike’s electrical consumption vary, he conceded. Depending on weight, and how hard they actual range could dip 50 miles, but with double the regardless, the new bike ought to much better for getting to and

“The idea is it’s an urban commuter,” Bramscher “It’s not really designed for you long freeway commutes of the speed.”

An ideal usage already being fulfilled for by the existing Enertia is one in which a would ride the bike to at a moderate pace, and if needed, it while it’s parked.

But after closely listening to feedback, Bramscher and crew are sure they have a that will satisfy more people than the model. “I think the Enertia will be a real solution,” he

The new bike may offer an optional terminal, Bramscher said, an on-board fast charger at point is too bulky to fit. options will include a and Givi luggage. As is true for the bike, the Enertia Plus have enough reserve to power electrically heated in the cold season, Bramscher and the new bike will offer a 12V outlet added to the handlebar and option as well.
