Brammo expects 2013 Enertia Plus to reach US in January, puts new Empulse R on the road

Brammo hasn't always had the smoothest delivery schedules, which has us somewhat relieved that its latest generation of electric motorcycles is hitting the road in earnest. To start, the company now anticipates that the 2013 Enertia Plus should ship to the US in mid-January. That leaves one last wait for a commuter e-bike that can peak around 60MPH and last up to 75 miles on a 7.5-hour charge. Others are getting a quicker fix, in more ways than one: as of a few days ago, the 2013 Empulse R has reached a first owner in San Francisco who's more than happy with his $18,995 outlay. He can confirm both the brisk performance and a realistic range of 75 to 80 miles. Between his new ride and the Enertia Plus, it may be a good season for eco-friendly driving on two wheels.
