Reviewing the Brammo Electric

Brammo brought its electric motorcycle for test rides at the 5 meeting of the San Francisco Electric Association. and people seemed to what they rode.

I have a motorcycle license, and a one-seater, so instead of a first-hand I interviewed two experienced riders who the Enertia in the videos above first Mike Gaylord, who drives a RAV4-EV, and second Epstein of Mission Motorcycles .
