Brammo Launch Video

Click here to see the preview video of the 2011 Brammo Empulse zero-emissions electric motorcycle. A sportbike that is capable of sustaining 100 mph.

Soon to be available in three different "green" vehicle models, each bike will have different battery capacities, all utilizing an innovative proprietary array of the Brammo Power Battery and Vehicle Management System. All three Empulse motorcycles will be freeway capable and are claimed to enjoy a top speed in excess of 100 mph.

Each of the three street bikes will offer customers a different average range from a single charge. The Empulse 6.0 is capable of 60 miles (96 kilometers) average range, the Empulse 8.0 is capable of 80 miles (129 kilometers) average range and the top of the line Empulse 10.0 is capable of a travelling 100 miles (161 kilometers) on a single charge.

As with all "green" electric vehicles, motorcyclists riding at lower speeds will realize extended ranges of all three models.

The estimated MSRP for the Empulse electric motorcycles are as follows:

> Empulse 6.0 at $9,995
> Empulse 8.0 at $11,995
> Empulse 10.0 at $13,995

All three electric motorbikes will be eligible for U.S. Federal and State tax incentives and the Empulse 10.0 may cost as little as $7,000 in certain states after Federal and State incentives. Brammo expects to start deliveries early next year in 2011.
