USA company Brammo Motorsports today announced the Enertia, a machine they claim to be the world's first production, zero-emissions and battery powered plug-in electric motorcycle. 

The Enertia's range of 45 miles significantly exceeds the daily commute for the average U.S. consumer of 29 miles. Battery charge time is 3 hours to full re-charge.

Borrowing from racing technology, the Enertia utilizes a carbon fiber chassis producing an ultra strong, light-weight vehicle platform of just 275 lbs. The chassis integrates six lithium-phosphate batteries from supplier Valence Technology that together produce the power to propel the Enertia to a top speed of over 50 mph.

Paul Seredynski, MSN autos said, "For those looking to make a lifestyle change, or for a cool 'green' machine to get around town on, few options exist that can compete on so many levels."

"We believe consumers are eager to adopt vehicles that have a fraction of the carbon footprint of a today's cars," says Craig Bramscher, Chairman & CEO of Brammo Motorsports, "Our Enertia electric motorcycle empowers people to make this choice today."

Brian Wismann, Brammo Director of Design said, "It is extremely satisfying to design a vehicle that people can both feel good about using and appreciate the way it looks."

Brammo's Enertia is the first of a line of plug-in electric commuter, commercial and recreational vehicles under development.
