Brammo Electric Motorcycle History

I saw this post on Brammoforum and wanted to share it here, Brammo was a pretty amazing company its unfortunate what happened with Victory:

I just received the .pdf file linked below from Adrian Stewart, who in turn received it from Charles Lee, Brammo employee and amazing photographer. Lots of fun looking through the photos, seeing familiar faces, remembering major milestones. I hope you enjoy it too.

Saw this one parked in outside the building next door today. Must have dusted it off for Bike to Work Day, it is not usually there...

Nice I've actually never seen a Brammo Empulse in person besides the Victories I've ridden. Were the cooling fans buzzing away?

They were not running when I saw it but I asked a guy I know in that building if he knew who owned it and he said "it was making a strange noise like a fan or a pump was running" when he pulled in the parking lot earlier in the morning. I am sure it was the fans doing their thing...

The Level 2 charger it is plugged into is free to use, not sure why the owner doesn't ride it in more and take advantage. There is a guy with a Zero in the building next door, he rides in almost every day.

I rode the Victory version and was sadly disappointed. First off it was slow! Neutral between second and third is silly. Riding position and seat firmness was ludicrous!
