2011 Brammo Enertia Plus Base

Intro

The 2011 Brammo Enertia Plus is an improvement on the Brammo Enertia. The original model can travel around 40 miles on a full charge, and the Enertia Plus can get as many as 80 miles from a single charge. The actual distance and amount of time that the charge will last depends on how the bike is ridden, the weight of the driver, and other factors like how often the bike has to stop and start. For high speed driving, a 40-mile range is more realistic. The Brammo Enertia is run completely on electricity, and as such, the top speed is only around 60 miles per hour. As such, the Brammo is not ideal for offroad uses, but it makes an excellent commuter in the city.

The Brammo Enertia Plus has a battery that can store as much as six kilowatt-hours. The plug-in method is simple, and while charging isn't insanely quick, it isn't insanely slow either. The ignition is a key, and the design is simple but attractive. The engine is the most powerful electronic motor available in 2011, with more than double the power of the closest competitor. While the batteries can hold twice the charge, they are also only good for 500 cycles. In comparison, the original Brammo Enertia's battery is good for 2000 cycles. The Enertia Plus, like the Enertia, has enough reserve power to heat electric clothing for additional warming qualities in the winter and inclement weather. The weight is 324 pounds, and the engine produces about 30 lb-ft of torque.

The Enertia Plus is extremely well built. All the parts are of high quality, and the ride is balanced and light. Acceleration is smooth, and the engine is extremely quiet, especially for a motorcycle. The mirrors may be a little small and skinny, and the lack of storage may be a bit off putting. While the price is a little high, there are often tax rebates associates with electronic vehicles. While it outclasses all the competition for this model year, the Enertia Plus and electronic motorcycles still have a long way to go before they are ideal for touring usage. As such, this is a commuter bike through and through.
