Brutus V2 Rocket Electric Motorcycle Pikes Peak Run – Video
The 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is already behind us with new EV records. Now, the first videos from the race are beginning to arrive.
The first is a Brutus V2 Rocket on-board video. Jeremiah Johnson, with a time of 12:20.448, won the Electric Modified Bike class, however we must note that this racing machine was slightly slower than the Zero S motorcycle.
Brutus was equipped with a sound signal, which could wake the dead, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
“We finished first in Modified Electric Motorcycle class. The race rules require a sound emitter of 120 db. The siren is the best solution for racing. If the sound annoys you, turn your volume down.”
And now something sedating:
“This is the return trip after everyone has raced up the mountain.”
As it turns out, Brutus V2 Rocket is available for sale from ~ $26,490:
