Electric Commuting Has Never Been This Fun
The Enertia electric motorcycle by Brammo is getting a substantial upgrade for 2011. The company is announcing today a new model called the Brammo Enertia+, and while it will cost $1000 more (from $7,995 to $8,995) than the non-plus version, it will have double the range, going from 40 miles to 80 miles. The most impressive thing about it is that they accomplished this without increasing the bike's weight. Who said battery technology isn't progressing? Check out the video below to see the Enertia+ in action.
"In addition to the new 6.0kWh Lithium Iron Phosphate battery pack, Brammo has also tweaked the handling with a increased fork offset and decreased trail, also positioning the handlebars 1-inch further back, this should make the Enertia Plus a touch easier to steer. Brammo also claims the Plus has a tighter turning circle." (source)
Brammo offers a $2,500 rebate to all existing customers. In the U.S., there's also a 10% federal tax break and state tax incentives of up to $1,500 (depending on the state).
