At 64 horsepower, the Brammo Empulse R may not be the fastest bike out there, but for an all-electric, it lays a lot more propulsion down than you’re probably expecting. Fast acceleration and control are maintained at all times thanks to the ultra-light 470-pound weight, an expertly designed chassis, and enough torque for great handling. The goal of the company was to make a bike that handles well, turns fast, and keeps a lean angle throughout.
Most of this is accomplished through the electric drivetrain. Brammo has emphasized power delivery and torque to give riders confidence whether on their daily commute or opening things up for maximum speed. The battery system on the Empulse R features seven on-board BTM 15-90 (15 volts) that give riders capability for 50 miles at optimum speed and 70 to 100 for the daily commute, bringing society one step closer to complete energy efficiency.
