Electric Motorcycle Debuts at Sunset Strip Nightclub
Nothing says L.A. like a motorcycle cruise down the Sunset Strip. Unless maybe... the motorcycle was as high performance as it was eco friendly.
We're guessing this is why the new Brammo Empulse, an electric motorcycle that can go at least 100mph and as far as 121 miles on a single charge, made its big debut this week at Boulevard 3, a lavish Hollywood club at Sunset and Cahuenga.
Brammo's CEO told the Los Angeles Times that the bike is the first viable motorcycle that just happens to be electric. Production starts next month in Oregon, but fortunately for L.A. bike enthusiasts, one of the company's three U.S. dealerships is the Bartels Harley-Davidson in Marina Del Rey.
Preorders for the basic model start at $16,995.
