At a top speed of 100 mph, the Brammo Empluse takes the potential dowdiness out of electric motorcycles.
Brammo Empulse and Empulse R
The 2012 Empulse has a 6 speed transmission as standard equipment. The Integrated Electric Transmission (IET™) – IET™ is a mechatronic propulsion unit that emulates the feeling and performance of a traditional internal combustion engine, with a specially developed electric motor, clutch and gear shift, that enables the 2012 Empulse to accelerate hard from the line up to a high top speed, something that is just not possible to achieve with a single ratio electric motorcycle. The 2012 Empulse is also the world’s first production electric motorcycle to feature water cooling.
