Brammo Empulse Finally Headed for Production – Video

According to Brammo, the BPM can increase or decrease its temperature to maintain peak performance levels.
Why the long delay? Brammo likely wanted to put in enough development time, including experience from its TTXGP North American Championship run.
Check back here on April 18 when full specifications are expected to be released.
