VIDEO: First Victory electric production bike (TT podium bike for the road)

Victory has launched the Empulse TT, which is a production electric motorcycle built around the same platform as the Brammo TT bike that bagged a podium in this year’s TT Zero race.

Heres’ what Victory is saying about the bike (basically, this is what you want to know about charge times, range etc):

The Victory Empulse TT is capable of top speeds over 100 mph and it has a high-capacity 10.4kWh battery. The bike has a built-in battery charger and an easily accessible SAE J1772 plug atop the bodywork to the front of the seat.



The bike’s Brammo Power Lithium Ion battery fully charges up in just 3.9 hours using a Stage 2 charger (available as an accessory utilising a 240V outlet).

In typical riding, the Empulse TT battery provides riders with a range of about 65 miles and a range of 100 miles is possible with throttle management and use of the bike’s regenerative charging. In preliminary testing, the bike demonstrated a Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) city range of 94 miles. The bike delivered an MIC “combined 70 mph highway and city range” of 57 miles.
