Video: Brammo Empulse - 100mph electric bike

Brammo have revealed their new Empulse electric motorcycle, which they claim is capable of 100mph and can go over 100 miles on a single charge. 

Three versions of the Empulse are planned – the 6.0, 8.0 and 10.0. Model names denote range, so the cheapest 6.0 model will go 60 miles on a charge, the 8.0 will do 80 miles and the 10.0 will do 100 miles.

Brammo say the Empulse makes 55bhp, 59ftlb of torque and weighs in at 177kg – not astounding stats in isolation, but pretty impressive for an electric bike that looks set to cost as little as $9,995 for the 6.0 (£6,504 at current exchange rates) when it goes on sale next summer.
