Ok "other" questions, if I may, cause you got my interest (Not trying to be a smart azz here) Where can you get a charge up if on the road? Can this bike be charged at some of those electric charging stations that I see every once in a while at some parking areas?? How long does a charge take to be 100%?? What would a charge up cost an owner if using a public charging station??The original maker was Brammo the Polaris purchased the company and still retains ownership of this model. It's a direct competitor with the Zero and livewire however the performance is closer to the zero. It's different in that it has a 6 speed manual transmission but you take off in any of the lowest 3 gears without the clutch. It will go zero to 80 using just 3rd gear but 114 in 6th. This is a 2003 so they have been around for quite a while. Range is 70-90 miles between charges depending on how hard it's pushed. I am going to double the battery so 150-160 should be reasonable and enough for chasing around.
I'm not going to touch that!!!I installed the app on my phone and there are charging stations all over the place. I can pretty much ride anywhere and do short breaks to top off the charge and possible do 400 - 500 miles a day. Most stations are free or super cheap. But we will see once it gets here. In any case I think it will be interesting at the least.
The Brammo is also the cheapest electrics as you can pick them up for under 7k compared to the livewire at 36k and they are comparable. Except the livewire has a seat vibrator to mimic a V-twin running, I though that was kind of humorous.
