2013 Electric Motorcycle Racing

Team Icon Brammo has unveiled its 2013 Empulse RR lineup of motorcycles that will contend in FIM/TTXGP electric motorcycle racing and the AFM series against gas-powered bikes.

For 2013, the Empulse RR race bikes, which will be piloted by Eric Bostrom and Steve Atlas, the 2012 FIM TTXGP Champions, will feature livery with Zebra and Cheetah graphics.

Brian Wismann (Director of Product Development for Brammo) says: “The Brammo racing team is stoked to be working with Icon again this season as a primary sponsor for the Empulse RR bikes that will be campaigned by Eric Bostrom and Steve Atlas in the FIM/TTXGP electric motorcycle racing series and in the AFM race series.

“Icon was a great partner in 2012 and their willingness to “push the limits” in design, aesthetics, and functionality of the gear they develop has made them a perfect fit for Brammo and the pioneering spirit of driving EV technology forward on the racetrack. We got a ton of positive feedback on the ‘Stack’ graphic that debuted on Steve’s World Championship winning Empulse RR in 2012, and can’t wait to see what people think of the 2013 Zebra and Cheetah!”
