We've already brought you pictures of and specs for the Brammo Enertia TTR, but now we can bring you high-res images (click the photos above to expand) and more details on what lies beneath the shiny green fairing. The TTR shares the upcoming Brammo Enertia's extruded aluminum frame, but upgrades the battery capacity from 3.1 to 8.1kWh as well as fitting more race-oriented suspension. That regular Enertia will go on sale at Best Buy in the very near future.
"We could have started from scratch and thrown a whole lot of money at
the project," explained Craig Bramscher, Brammo's CEO to Wired.com.
"But rather than go all out, we wanted to show the heritage of the
Enertia and show where it is headed."
Brammo plans to release two additional models later this year, which could include technology from the TTR.
In addition to the extra battery capacity and more powerful motor --
good for 90mph -- the TTR gains custom Traxxion Dynamics forks, radial
Brembos, an Elka monoshock and forged magnesium Marchesini wheels. The
whole thing weighs in at 360lbs.
"Our goal is to be the best handling bike and the one that goes through
the curves the fastest so we've got the highest average speed," says
Bramscher. The TTR is likely to be far slower in a straight line than
both the Mission One, the street version of which is said to hit
150mph, and the MotoCzysz E1pc with it's 10 battery packs and three
motors. We've already seen the E1pc hit 122mph on a dyno.
Range is a concern to all the competitors in the TTXGP, the inaugural
zero emissions motorcycle race on the Isle of Man. ""Hopefully 37-1/2
miles," jokes Bramscher when asked about the range, in which case it'd
need to coast the final 2/10 of a mile to the Mountain Course's finish
