World’s first carbon-neutral motorcycle manufacturer revealed
Branson is claiming to be the first ever carbon neutral motorcycle company.
The brand was launched at the Motorcycle Trade Expo at the weekend, and emissions from building the Denmark designed and developed, Chinese-built commuter machines are claimed to be offset by green initiatives within the company.
Branson says most of the range is manufactured exclusively for them, and a dealer network is currently being established. All bikes are fully road legal and come with a three year parts and labour warranty.
The range is topped by the BS250 Glider, an automatic 250 four-stroke single maxi-scooter. Like the rest of the range, the Glider has a Bluetooth function that tells you when your phone is ringing, plus underseat storage and a useful fuel gauge. Price is yet to be decided.
The BS125 Boulevard is expected to be the biggest seller in the range, and is powered a 125cc four-stroke single with CVT transmission. Twin slim panniers are fitted as standard, and there’s underseat storage too. It’s expected to cost £1618 on the road.
