BRAMMO, maker of plug-in electric motorcycles, announced today it is dropping the price of the all-electric BRAMMO Enertia powercycle, to $7,995. Customers are also eligible for a 10% federal income tax credit, further reducing the price to $7,195.
"While this pricing breakthrough is innovative in transportation, it is in line with consumer electronics, where engineering and production advances get passed on to customers as quickly as possible to stimulate adoption of the technology," stated Craig Bramscher, founder and CEO of Brammo.
On Wednesday, October 28, Craig Bramscher, founder and CEO of the Brammo electric motorcycle company, and others will meet with Energy Secretary Steven Chu and other energy officials to discuss energy efficiency, alternative energy sources, and the creation of jobs in similar markets.
The United States House of Representatives has unanimously passed an amendment giving two-wheel electric vehicles manufacturers access to Department of Energy funding for further development of electric vehicles.
The amendment was included in HR 3246, the Advanced Vehicle Technology Act and passed the House on September 16, 2009, 312-114.
For the EV industry this will allow, for the first time, two wheel vehicles to benefit from federal Department of Energy funding.
