Is an electric motorcycle in your future?

There will be, if Craig Bramscher has anything to say about it.

The man who brought the Ariel Atom stateside has now turned his attention to performance vehicles of the two-wheeled persuasion.

Brammo Empulse

Since 2006 the Brammo electric motorcycles have been making headlines and receiving rave reviews. A recent infusion of $28 million from Polaris Industries and others has put the fledgeling motorbike manufacturer on the radar. As well as on the road, possibly as soon as Spring 2012.

The original Enertia was sold through select Best Buy locations beginning in 2009. That bike was called a "powercycle" and had a unique style that was targeted toward the urban commuter. The company's image took a decided turn toward performance with the introduction of the Empulse line. These motorcycles looked like real motorcycles and offered top speeds in excess of 100 mph.

Currently the company is supplying the Hong Kong government with a fleet of their Enertia Plus motorcycles. Production facilities in Hungary are cranked up and ready to produce bikes for riders all over the globe, and a network of U.S. dealers is currently being formed. By Spring the company plans to have 30 to 40 dealers operating in major metropolitan areas.
