A Brammo employee recently released a video featuring the electric Empulse R tucked in behind the exhaust of Suzuki GSXR 750 on one of Oregon’s winding roads.

The video shows that the Empulse R is able to keep the pace imposed by the 2007 Suzuki GSXR 750, a formidable challenge indeed.

Who could have ever imagined 5 or 10 years ago that commercially available electric bikes would ever be capable of challenging the pace set by some of today’s hottest gas-burning two-wheeler?

Worth watching too is the second video, which shows the Empulse R’s gear-shifting action.

I wish there were more affordable electric motorcycles. I know people say the same thing with cars. But there seems to be an even wider gap in pricing between EV and gasoline motorcycles. Or maybe that’s simply because when shopping for a motorcycle I’ve always looked at used ones.

I’ve been an old school Sportster rider for many years, but this is tempting!

Are you guys going to consolidate reporting of IOM covering Mugen Shinden & MotoCzysz? 107+mph laps this year seems like compelling progress over previous years.

Cool stuff. I wish you guys covered the electric motorcycle scene a little more.
