Brammo Launches New Electric Motorcycles With Six-Speed Drivetrain
The Integrated Electric Transmission (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.
“Electric motorcycle design has always been a bit of a balancing act in direct drive systems where great acceleration performance comes at the expense of low top-end speed,” stated Brian Wismann, Director of Product Development at Brammo. “The IET system provides the best of both worlds and is the perfect complement to Brammo’s industry-leading Brammo Power battery and vehicle control technology to maintain our position as the world’s leading electric motorcycle manufacturer.“
Pricing for the new models (all featuring the IET and swappable Brammo Power battery packs) are listed below:
• Engage MX - dirt bike competing in MiniMotoSX - anticipated price $9,995
• Engage SMR – Super Moto Racing – anticipated price $9,995
• Engage SMS - Super Moto Street - anticipated price $11,995
The fourth model, Encite MMX PRO - mini dirt bike competing in MiniMotoSX - has not received a price tag yet. The Engage and Encite join the Enertia and Empulse. Brammo continues to expand its dealership network in North America and will be adding many new dealers over the next 90 days.
