Brammo Empulse - 100 Mile Range, 100MPH coming in 2011

This is breaking news; and it doesn't even show up on Brammo's own site, yet!

The Empulse 6.0 (60 mile range) will start at $10K, and the Empulse 8.0 (80 mile range) and the Empulse 10.0 (100 mile range) be up to $14K, though there may be federal and/or state incentives/rebates/tax reductions that could reduce the 10.0 down to as low as $7K.

New models

I was happy to see this!

More models and more manufacturers will hopefully attract the attention of the larger manufacturers.

I would think the manufacturing leverage alone of one of these would lower the prices.

It will be neat when these can stand on their own as far as purchase price without the rebates.

Oh, I do hope they're gonna put a windshield and some fairings, that naked look will definitely decrease it's performance/range.

Apparently, they will offer a range of footpeg set ups, and yes a small flyscreen would be great, too.
