At first glance this 2012 Brammo Empulse R may look like your typical motorcycle but this one is actually an Electric motorcycle. In this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Jay features the 2012 Brammo Empulse R electric bike. Among all the battery and efficiency-oriented upgrades Brammo have made for their motorcycles, the “proper transmission” is by far the most important step. According to Craig Bramscher, the founder of Brammo, they realized that one of the most important elements when riding a motorcycle is shifting so they added a great transmission system to it. Just like Jay Leno said, driving this e-car feels like like a traditional bike in terms of operation and shifting, but with the added silent operation and instantaneous thrust available when throttling right off idle. Watch Jay Leno take this Brammo Empulse R on a ride in the video below!
