July 16th, 2010 by GreenDan Leave a reply »

Brammo, an electric vehicle company with headquarters in Ashland, Oregon, United States, has recently presented an electric motorcycle called Empulse.

The motorcycle boasts a 50-horsepower motor and can reach a speed of over 100 miles per hour and a range of 100 miles on a single charge.

Probably the most interesting feature of the bike is its price that is rather low considering the performance of Empulse. The price starts at $9,995. However, the 100-mile-range battery upgrade increases the price of the bike till $13,995.

In order to make the motorcycle more lightweight (Empulse weights 390 pounds), Brammo decided to develop its own batteries. It is worth mentioning that the company will launch 3 models of its electric bike. Each model will be available starting next year.
