[widgetkit id=2753]

After a few setbacks Brammo have finally unveiled it’s latest Empulse electric motorcycle.

The Empulse electric bike has a 6 speed transmission as standard equipment. The Integrated Electric Transmission is a mechatronic propulsion unit that emulates the feeling and performance of a traditional internal combustion engine, with a specially developed electric motor, clutch and gear shift, that enables the Empulse to accelerate hard from the line up to a high top speed, something that is just not possible to achieve with a single ratio electric motorcycle. The 2012 Empulse is also the world’s first production electric motorcycle to feature water cooling.

Aside from the standard Impulse model Brammo have also announced the released The Empulse R which uses carbon fibre for headlight shroud, front and rear fenders, top panel and the rear light housing.

Prices are $16,995 for the standard model and $18,995 for the Empulse R and will launch early next year.
