Brammo Enertia Electric Motorcycle Is Now Officially Available (VIDEO)
Electric motorcycles are catching on like wildfire. Traditional motorbikes are pretty fuel efficient by design but they still burn petrol and have harmful emissions. So, if you are a looking for a chance to do your part to save the planet, check out the new Brammo Enertia. This is an electric vehicle that runs on lithium phosphate batteries, has a power output the equivalent of 13.7 horsepower and a top speed of 55 mph.
A full charge takes only 3 hours, for which you are anointed with a 45 mile driving range. Battery life is always an issue, but these are good for 35,000 miles of driving, meaning the average user will get 10 years of use out of them. Most people will probably have upgraded to the next generation long before failure. However, if you are someone who buys things and uses them until they disintegrate, at today’s market prices, a new set of lithium phosphate batteries would run you around $3,000.
The price of the Brammo Enertia is rather steep at $11,995, but like all things high-design, part of the cost goes towards the cool factor. The bike features a single headlight, narrow frame and chopped tail. Everything is blacked out except for the orange trim around the “fuel tank” aka battery pack. The Enertia weighs only 280 pounds so it’s very manageable for smaller framed men or women.
This is an exciting offering in the marketplace and I’ll be very interested to see what happens with subsequent generations as battery technology and electric motor functionality improves. If the driving range can be raised to over 100 miles and the top speed up to 65 mph, the Brammo Enertia will be a true contender against its gas sipping brethren.
