1 cent per mile fuel costs—how does that compare to your current ride?

Brammo’s two-wheel EVs are being offered in three different versions, but unfortunately none of them are the Racing version (Brammo Empulse RR) that just won the Infineon Raceway installment of the TTXGP Formula GP. Still Brammo seems to have the best stock electric motorcycles and easily the most attractive promotion girls on the tradeshow circuit.
According to Brammo:
The Brammo’s Empulse builds on the strengths of their previous electric motorcycle model the Enertia. The Empulse features Brammo’s new Digital Drivetrain technology, which enables all models of the Empulse to exceed 100mph for sustained periods. The Empulse is also the world’s first production electric motorcycle to feature water cooling.
Brammo’s Empulse comes in three different models (6.0. 8.0 & 10.0) which relates to the expected range (based on the size of the battery pack).
Empulse 6.0 Range = 60 miles (90km) with the 6kWh battery pack (Price $9,995)
Empulse 8.0 Range = 80 miles (128km) with the 8kWh battery pack (Price $11,995)
Empulse 10.0 Range = 100 miles (160km) with the 10kWh battery pack (Price $13,995)
One thing to keep in mind is that the range of EV’s (just like most any other vehicles) is affected by the total weight carried (rider & cargo), road conditions, traffic and riding style etc.

It seems to me that Brammo doesn’t even need their popular Brammo promo girls when they can just advertise 1 cent per mile fuel transportation costs.
