Enertia Electric Motorcycle

Illustration for article titled Enertia Electric Motorcycle

The Brammo Motorsports Enertia is a 100% electric bike. Charged by normal plug in a speedy three hours (faster than my Macbook Pro), six lithium phosphate batteries can store up to 45 miles worth of riding. But at a top speed of only 50mph, the chain-driven Enertia is more of a decorated moped than a motorcycle (though the Brembo brakes sound nice). Hitting stores next year, a limited edition carbon model will run $14,995 with the standard priced at $11,995. Because it takes green to go green.

DISCUSSION

Here's the deal with these Brammo fools. Craig Bramsher (the owner) is a big computer geek that got lucky and got his company bought out in the tech bubble. Looking for something entertaining to do after he has spent Millions of his money and investors and returned NOTHING and he never will. He's not a businessman, this is a hobby for him.

Aftet failing with his "rogue GT" concept and then the "Ariel Atom" he moved on to build an electric moped with a carbon fiber frame.

No one in his entire organization including him is a motorcyclist so you can imagine how slow this thing is (it does look kind of neat though). As soon as his self admitted A.D.D. kicks in again he'll move on to his next "great idea".
