Brammo Empluse

http://www.brammo.com/store/brammo-empulse/


what do you all think? it could look a little better, but i might look into one or simple fact i've been looking at a new and

the empulse is lighter, better mpg and same price and i hear electric motors have a faster throttle response


not saying im going to for sure get one, but im definitely going to keep my eye on it

been reading most of the stuff on these, they've come a long way and still have a lot of work to do but i'm all for the electrics. very cool.

im pleased that they are putting some cool styling into it as well.

There is a lot of information missing on their website. Information that I would need to see before even considering buying one. The prices aren't all that either, they are not bad but, not good.

once they condense the battery size and weight they'll be pretty nice, i think i would miss having a tranny though.

If I had money to burn I would do this. I don't, so it will be a while.

Remember the capacity of lithium ion batteries decreases rather quickly. You would likely be looking at a 50% of the original capacity in 3 to 5 years depending on the use cycles (1200 charge cycles, less abuse). If you keep it cool (<80F, in Houston?), not full (40-60% charge, now we are down to 50 mile range for the expensive one), and not high load duty cycles (yeah, right. with us speed monkeys?) you could get a half life extended to maybe 10 years. I would still do it if I had the cheddar.

trying to rationalize the range limitations ... its tough because all the good roads in houston take about 30 miles just to get to... that eats up most of a charge already... hm... not quite there yet.. but its definitely on the right track.. i dig it
