2012 Brammo Empulse R Video
Brammo recently released a new video showing their flagship electric sportbike – the Empulse R – in action on back roads in Malibu in in downtown LA.
The Empulse R has been all the talk regarding electric motorcycles. Why? Brammo claims the machine has a top speed over 100mph, and gets 121 miles to a charge.
With these numbers, the Empulse R is the highest-performance electric sportbike, taking the top spot from the Zero S ZF9 (114-mile range, 88mph top speed).
The Empulse R (and standard Empulse) was also the first electric motorcycle to have a drivetrain specifically built for a production motorcycle. Along with this drivetrain, the Empulse features a water-cooled permanent magnet AC motor, IET 6 speed gearbox and Brammo’s unique BPM 15/90 battery modules.
