    Brammo Electric Motorcycle

    The article never mentions the actual range, but lists 'range' as one of the few cons.

    Taking a whir on Brammo

    Hmm. Interesting article. That's the perennial deal with electrics... people always whine about the 'range', but yes, should have mentioned metrics.... which are:-

    [email protected] 121 miles, [email protected] 56 miles
    Sustained at 19mph and 70mph respectively.

    On the "con" regarding time lost answering a ton of questions".. that is easily fixed with non-attention-getting cowling... however, I suspect that attention is what Brammo seeks

    The batteries are also built in a way to keep them cool (calling on a lot of amperage heats them up right quick) while supplying the output needed to carry the bike to more than 100mph, or 100 miles of relatively conservative (70mph) riding. Lose-your-license speeds will result in lower range levels, naturally.
