Craigslist Brammo Inertia 2009
 
2009 Brammo Enertia Limited Silver (100% electric)

Been there for a while, probably some kind of scam. I wonder how the battery would be holding up at 3 years age and only 250 miles. I have not tried to contact the seller.

If its close, try to get an address and at least take it for a drive.

It's about two hours away. I sent the "seller" an email asking how much range was still available.

It might be ok if it has been plugged in the whole time. What were they new? $6700 when Best Buy had them?

$9,000 or more I thought.

I got a reply from the seller. He purchased it new from Brammo directly on Nov 21 2011, so I am assuming it was not made in 2009 (should have a VIN and production date). He invited me to arrange a test ride. After some research my big issue is my daily drive is 40 miles with a one hour (approx) brake between the return trip (20 miles each way). This would seem to be the absolute range limit of the bike, so I would probably have to recharge in the one hour interim between rides.

With 6 vehicles licensed right now and the range limit I would be approaching every time I rode the bike, it just seems to be right on the edge of practicality. If it had 10 more miles range it would make a huge difference. While I can hypermile the bike and it would probably work, there seems to be little margin for error.

I think I'll pass until my situation changes. I need to get rid of 3 bikes, then maybe I'll give an electric bike a try for a while. It does seem like a good deal for someone who had less of a range issue. I think the bike was 8k new, seems like a lot of depreciation for such a low number of miles, many riders on the Brammo forum are in the 5k range.

If anyone here is interested, go for it, you won't aggravate me in the least and maybe both parties would be happy.

$8,000 I guess is what it was.

It would be a good deal at $4000 if the batteries are sound. The only way to tell would be to get a 40 mile test ride.

Good reviews left over on Best Buy.

In that one hour of recharging you'd probably get about 6-7 miles of additional range. This assumes a 1000W charger and the bike getting ~150 Wh/mile which I think is about right for a motorcycle.

Seller informed me it sold today.
