2013 Team Icon Brammo Empulse RR Livery Revealed
Icon and Brammo made a big splash last year with eye-catching livery for their TTXGP racebike, with Steve Atlas riding the black-and-white patterned “Stack” graphic Empulse RR to a TTXGP world championship. The riding apparel maker returns to sponsor Brammo’s team again for 2013, introducing two new designs for Atlas and teammate Eric Bostrom.
Atlas’ Team Icon Brammo Empulse RR will be clad in a red cheetah-themed “Sauvetage” livery (pictured above). It features a red-on-red spotted pattern with a gaping mouth with fangs running from under the seat to the belly resembling the design of fighter planes of the World War II era “Flying Tiger” 1st American Volunteer Group. The livery is paired with red wheels and frame.
Bostrom’s race bike keeps the black and white with florescent green from last year’s Empulse RR but features a new zebra-themed design called “Big Game” (pictured below the jump.)
Atlas and Bostrom will compete in the 2013 FIM/TTXGP electric racing championship as well as the American Federation of Motorcyclists (AFM) series, competing against gas-powered competition.
“Icon was a great partner in 2012 and their willingness to ‘push the limits’ in design, aesthetics, and functionality of the gear they develop has made them a perfect fit for Brammo and the pioneering spirit of driving EV technology forward on the racetrack,” says Brian Wismann, Brammo’s director of product development. “We got a ton of positive feedback on the “Stack” graphic that debuted on Steve’s World Championship winning Empulse RR in 2012, and can’t wait to see what people think of the 2013 Zebra and Cheetah!”
According to greentechmedia.com, Best Buy and Brammo (the maker of the Enertia electric bike) have plans in place to sell the $12,000 Enertia electric motorcycle at five of the electronic chain’s West Coast stores in May. Back in September, Best Buy Venture Capital invested $10 million Brammo so this deal was the next logical step. […]
