Brammo Inc. announced that its Empulse electric sport bike has been chosen by Popular Science Magazine editors to receive a Best of What's New Award for 2011 in the Automotive category.
The Brammo Empulse was designed in Ashland, Ore., and production will commence there in early 2012. The Empulse has the ability to go more than 100 mph and up to 100 miles on a single charge, and almost 2,000 customers have already pre-ordered the Empulse. It features a water-cooled electric motor and a six-speed transmission.
"This is a true honor, and we are delighted to be recognized in this way by Popular Science Magazine," said Craig Bramscher, founder and CEO of Brammo. "I know the whole Brammo team has worked tirelessly on the Empulse, and they will be very excited to hear about winning this prestigious award. We are very much looking forward to seeing the Empulse on streets all across the U.S.A. next year."
