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.

The batteries, provided by Valence Technology, can be recharged in three hours even after a full discharge.
