Video: the future flies by

Dailies -



Electric motorcycles are slow, boring and silent, right? Not the Brammo Empulse, captured tearing up a rural road somewhere in Oregon.

    I’d like mine delivered yesterday, please.

    The Force is strong in this one…

    Does that bike look tiny to anyone else?

    • Wes Siler

      Yes it does. And that makes it even more awesome.

  • Brammofan

    I couldn’t help it… had to do a bit of editing on the video.

    • Wes Siler

      Help me brammofan, you’re my only hope.

      George Lucas is going to be PISSED!

    That thing is the size of an old Kawi 2 stoke. Seems like it handles better, though, and it sounds just as good! I’ll take mine in Imperial Black, please.

    Where is the extension Cord?

    • Wes Siler

      Squint and you can see it trailing behind the bike.

  • Core

    Sounds like a jet flying over head.

    I went in to my local Best Buy (in Clackamas, 10 miles South of Portland, OR) the other day and asked an associate where they kept the Brammos.
    Blank stare.
    OK, where are the electric bikes?
    OH! They’re over by the appliances.

    Nothing but bicycles. The guy hadn’t even heard the name Brammo.
