The Brammo Empulse is a technological wonder in the electric motorcycle world. With over 100 years of development, we’re largely familiar with how an internal combustion engine works. But if you’ve been wondering how an e-bike converts electricity into wheel-spinning power, Brian Wismann is here to show you.
In this video, Wismann goes over the critical elements of the Brammo Empulse with this cutaway model shown at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013. He dissects the entire bike, explaining terms like battery cells, electric motors, motor controllers, and more, to give you an idea of just how different e-bikes are compared to their gas counterparts.
