The Empulse and Empulse R utilize the world’s first drivetrain to be designed and built for a production electric motorcycle. It features a water-cooled AC motor, IET™ high performance 6 speed transmission and Brammo’s unique BPM 15/90 battery modules. This drivetrain package endows the Empulse and Empulse R with rapid off-the-line acceleration, sustained high speed and industry leading range.
Unique for a production electric motorcycle, both Empulse models also have a J1772 Level II on-board charging system, allowing riders to easily take advantage of the growing number of charging stations being installed in cities around the world. Just two hours of Level II charging will take the Empulse from 20% to 80% state of charge. Every 10 minutes of charging adds 5 miles of range.
With its head turning good looks and two up carrying capacity the Empulse and Empulse R are the most desirable production electric motorcycles in the world.
