2014 Brammo Electric Motorcycles [Empulse & Empulse R]

The 2014 Empulse is an evolution of the highly acclaimed, award winning 2013 Empulse. With its unique water cooled motor, six speed gearbox and integrated J1772 rapid charging, the Empulse remains as the market leader in the category. A top speed of 110mph (177kph) and a 3kW onboard charger means the Brammo Empulse retains its crown as the world’s fastest electric motorcycle in serial production both riding and charging. The 2014 Empulse embodies many new and improved components making it an EV technology tour de force.
Fully 10lbs of weight is removed from the Empulse, further improving performance, handling, and range. With the ground-breaking IET integrated 6-speed transmission, the Empulse is able to translate its 90Nm (66 lb-ft) of electric motor torque to over 880Nm (650 ft-lbs) at the rear wheel*. That’s enough forward thrust to relegate direct-drive competitors to the rear view mirrors and compel the motorcycling press to compare the substantial performance to that of 650cc twin class motorcycles.
Brammo, Inc., is pleased to announce that, as part of its European expansion, the much-anticipated Brammo Empulse, Empulse R and Enertia Plus electric motorcycles will be offered for sale in the United Kingdom commencing in the second quarter of 2014 through authorized Brammo dealerships. Brammo will be working with Going Green and Darvill Distribution to ensure success in the United Kingdom.
