Brammo Empulse Electric

The Brammo Empulse, the Oregon-based latest electric motorcycle

Brammo Motorsports has announced the of its all-new Empulse electric Comprising a new three-model lineup, the new electric bike makes performance claims over its the Enertia, most notably its 100-mile range and 100 mph top speed. USA gained exclusive access to the new at the manufacturer’s home base in Oregon.

Headlining the new design is water-cooled electric powertrain, the company claiming status as the water-cooled electric powerplant in production. Like the Enertia, the sources a permanent magnet AC but the new unit is capable of higher and current capacities, with a rise in power output. A radiator and less than a of engine coolant keep running smooth in the new motor.

The system doesn’t need to be as the inherent efficiency of an electric (Brammo claims 90%) very little waste A traditional internal combustion operates at around 25-30% with the majority of energy as heat.

The key to the Brammo Empulse’s higher claims comes from the energy densities in its battery which range from 6 to 10

The Empulse motor harnesses from a more efficient pack, developed in-house and off the firm’s Enertia TTR racebike competed in the inaugural Zero The batteries are governed by Brammo’s battery management system. The range between the three Empulse is dependent on the energy density of the battery packs, 6 kWh, 8 kWh and 10

The increased energy densities and motor are what increase thresholds to more palatable than those of the previous model.

“The Enertia has 3 kWh hours onboard. This as it’s shown here, has 8 kWh on Brammo’s Director of Product Brian Wissman, when USA arrived to view the new Empulse. of that increased energy on board we get increased range.

We can get 100 miles out of the bike, and we also get in power. So these batteries, with this water-cooled allows the bike to easily over 100 mph.”

The new 100 mph and 100-mile range stats are benchmarks the previous Brammo couldn’t match, with the sporting a 45-mile range and 50 mph top when we tested the prototype our 2008 Brammo Enertia Ride ). At the time, we said of the ride “Double the range and add 30-40 mph to top speed and the Enertia from short-distance commuter to a playbike.” It seems Brammo has exactly that.

and hear it running a brief reveal near the company’s Oregon headquarters.

Says on the Empulse’s new range and top speed “Talking to customers and with also being a performance-based to begin with, we really like those are thresholds we need to get over to offer a good value to consumers.”

The improved performance does with a significant drawback, time increased to 8-10 for a full cycle from a 110V wall plug. Wissman promises steps are taken to make a faster option via a 240V plug. As the Eneritia, the new Empulse will for easy plug-and-tune electronics, via USB on the dash mount and under the

Low center of gravity and mass promise a light handling for the electric design.

Claimed weight is 390 lbs, than the curb weight of a Supersport, with the bike’s quite narrow. Wissman the low center of gravity and weight make for a quick-turning machine: we found putting professional on this bike [Empulse], as as the TTR bike, is these electric ride lighter than actually are. A lot of guys compared these bikes and the of Man bikes as feeling like 250 GP quite a bit lighter than 390 So we think this a benefit of the mass centralization and narrow

From the drawing board to Brammo expects the new Empulse to be by mid-2011.

Style-wise, the Empulse a more familiar-looking motorcycle its predecessor, the new radiator being a bit of gear for the traditionalists.  Brammo’s frame with stacked anchors the overall design, the Empulse lacking a prominently and no exhaust at all, both features such a critical role in two-wheeled designs. Instead the motor is buried beneath the not a prominent feature at first

Brammo continues to out to motorcycle dealers for a more service network, but has sourced a distribution method with Best Buy stores selling bikes. “It’s a learning for both groups,” says of the Best Buy partnership, “but been really good. service techs are great. learning how to sell motorcycles, learning how to work with a big partner.”

Brammo says the will first reach the at select dealers, with delivery dates in mid-2011. It also be sold at those select Buy locations during 2011. can place their order for the new online now at

Located in Oregon, Brammo Motorsports its new Empulse exclusively to Motorcycle USA at the shoot in the hanger of nearby Brim

In the more immediate future, the is set to make its public debut at the Red USGP at Laguna Seca, this month. The Ashland-based is also set to debut a racing of the Empluse, dubbed the Empulse RR, where it will compete in the FIM Series race. The Empulse will make international appearances at the EICMA Show in November and the Macau Prix in China.

Stay tuned for future
