2011 Enertia Plus

A continuing concern for those contemplating buying an electric motorcycle is the range of the bike. For 2011, Brammo has introduced the Enertia Plus, which has a claimed range of 80 miles on a single charge. 6.0 kWh Lithium-Ion batteries power the $8995 Enertia Plus electric motorcyle, which weighs a claimed 324 pounds.

“I am delighted to announce the highly anticipated next member to our Enertia product line, the Enertia Plus,” Craig Bramscher, Founder and CEO of Brammo electric motorcycles said.

“Taking full advantage of the Brammo Power technology revealed initially in the Empulse, we are now able to offer consumers twice the range in our Enertia platform. At just a $1000 price difference compared to the standard Enertia, we are offering a truly practical EV motorcycle with unprecedented consumer value.”

According to Brian Wismann, Director of Motorcycle Development, “It’s truly been an amazing experience to watch the Enertia’s capabilities as a motorcycle grow in step with the latest developments in EV technology.”

“As with every Brammo product, the Enertia Plus represents the best of what we know. When we started the Enertia development, I never would have believed such a huge leap in range was possible in such a short period of time.”

The Enertia Plus feature a number of enhancements over the earlier Enertia, including simplified charging, improved maneuverability, plus the option to add a center kickstand and rigid Givi motorycycle side bags.

Customers can choose from four new colors–Eclipsed Black, Peacekeeping Blue, True Blood Red, and Aluminium Silver.

It is expected that all five models of Brammo electric motorcycle will be available globally in 2011 through authorized Brammo motorcycle dealerships, including participating Best Buy stores.

As with the recently announced Empulse, one of the first 1,000 customers to pre-order the 2011 Bramo Enertia Plus will receive his motorcycle compliments of Brammo.
