Brammo Motorsports is creating a new level of energy efficiency and emission reduction with the Enertia, a battery-powered, plug-in electric motorcycle. The scooter eliminates emissions completely, using batteries that help provide a top speed of more than 50 mph and a range of 45 miles. Six lithium-phosphate batteries are hidden in the chassis, which uses carbon fiber to keep weight down to 275 lb without sacrificing strength. The batteries, provided by Valence Technology, can be recharged in three hours even after a full discharge.
