Brammo Brings 6-Speed Transmission to Engage and Encite Electric Bikes [Video][Photo Gallery]
With SMRE Engineering and Brammo entering into a strong strategic partnership and the latter acquiring an exclusive international license for the Integrated Electric Transmission invented and patented by SMRE Engineering, 6-speed electric bikes are now real.
The new Brammo Engage and Encite series will be the first to have the IET technology and of course, a gearbox. Brian Winsmann of Brammo adds: “The 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 Brammo motorcycles 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."
This new approach to riding an electric bike brings back one of the things riders were missing and creates and exceptional ground for future development of even niftier bikes.
The new series machines are already on pre-order from Brammo: Engage MX - dirt bike competing in MiniMotoSX - anticipated price $9,995 (€7,625), Engage SMR – Super Moto Racing – anticipated price $9,995 (€7,625), Engage SMS - Super Moto - anticipated price $11,995 (€9,150), Encite MMX PRO - mini dirt bike competing in MiniMotoSX - no price announced.
