The Enertia Motorcycle

A while ago I did a post about the Tesla Roadster that is sold by Tesla Motors in the United States. This car is a legitimate sports car. A Lotus chassis, 0-60 in 4 seconds, and a top speed of 130 prove it. The kicker is that this car is run purely off of electricity. The only downside is the $100,000+ price tag.

Don’t have that kind of cash, but would still like to own the technology? The Enertia Electric Motorcycle by Brammo is for you. 0-30 in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 50mph make this bike a great choice for commuting. The 40-50 mile range will conquer most home to work distances and once at work you can charge it using a standard electrical outlet. The starting price of $11,995 (add $300 for shipping) is much more attainable for the rest of us. If you want a little more bling on your ride, you can opt for the $14,995 limited edition “Carbon” model.

They will begin shipping third quarter of 2008, so you have plenty of time to contemplate your purchase. They are also planning a scaled down version for campus cruising and a two up version for carrying a passenger.

Edited for Accuracy. Previous version pegged Brammo as the creator of the Tesla when it in fact is Tesla. “Responsible Fundraising” apologizes for this error.

    Good to know that motorcycles are now becoming more and more eco-friendly, while retaining their functionality and form. Good read!

    You are confused. Tesla and Brammo are two different companies. Tesla makes the Tesla and the Whitestar. Brammo makes the Atom and the Enertia.
