No matter which model is chosen, the 2011 Brammo Empulse 6.0, 8.0, or 10.0, there will be no color choice. The standard is red and black. Unique design features abound, the most noticable being the missing exhaust pipes. Electric motors don't need them. It is surprising how much that alone cleans up the lines of these bikes. The bottom of the motor housing and the side frame member are in parallel, at an approximate 25-degree angle from the ground. The side frame member, originating at the junction of handlebar and fork, is about six inches thick. It is not round, but has three flat surfaces at angles to one another. Fenders are minimalist. The rear one covers about eight inches of the wheel, with the front edge just behind top dead center. The front is about 10 inches long and is canted slightly back of top alignment. The wheels are also minimalist, with 10 sturdy spokes, creating a very open look. Leaning forward to grasp the handgrips looks like a challenge for the shorter operator, due to what looks like an extra-high hump over the propulsion unit and battery pack.
