So there we were, on duty at Daytona Bike Week, selling every J&P Cycles part imaginable for your motorcycle, when the folks from Brammo Motorcycles approached us, asking if we’d mind taking their new electric motorcycle out for a test spin.
You don’t have to ask J&P’s Patrick Garvin that question twice. Grabbing up a camera and microphone, Patrick and the film crew walked out to the speedway and climbed aboard a unique looking electric bike. Weaving between palm trees like they were traffic cones, Patrick returned from a spin around the speedway for a quick on-air review of the ride.
Coming from a gas-powered bike, he said, the Brammo Enertia is way different. “The throttle response was really great. It’s got maximum torque and great handling,” said Patrick, adding the bike can do 70 mph and touting it as a great ride for an urban commuter.
Check out Patrick’s review via the video above (he said the hardest part about riding this bike “is getting people to stop talking to me about it.”). As Patrick says, you owe it to yourself to test ride on of these quiet, efficient machines. It’ll put a smile on your face, and that’s what motorcycles are supposed to do, right?
