Brammo qualifies well for Isle of Man TTXGP

Excitement is building at the inaugural TTXGP on the Isle of Man as Brammo’s two production-based Enertia TTR race bikes took second and third in yesterday’s final qualifying sessions.

The world’s first no-emissions motorcycle race is now just hours away as the 23 teams from around the world hit the track tomorrow, June 12. For additional information about the event, visit www.ttxgp.com.

Team Brammo Enertia Best Buy Racing manager, Brian Wismann, who’s also Brammo’s director of product development, is thrilled with the progress the team has made and said, "Our crew is working smart to further refine the settings on both Enertia’s to achieve the right balance of speed and range, and we believe that we’re close to having the optimal mix. Starting with the same Brammo Enerita that customers can buy instead of a one-off, high-budget garage project has both challenges and advantages but we felt it was important to demonstrate the capability of a commercially available product and advance the category of electric powered transportation."

Andy Leisner of Hardcard Holdings, the motorsports management firm that is assisting Team Brammo, said, "The experience on the Isle of Man has been incredible and we can’t thank Best Buy enough for all of their support they’re providing us, both from all of their infrastructure and promotional. I have been associated with some of the top racing programs in the world and the Brammo organization has brought a new level of wisdom and thinking to the sport. It’s no wonder they’re a leader in the design and production of electric motorcycles."
