Next week we will get to see the Brammo Empulse R officially and publicly unveiled in Los Angeles, but the eagle-eyed lens of Brenda Priddy & Co. and the pages of AutoMoto have caught the electric motorcycle during a movie shoot for its upcoming launch. With an “R” emblazoned on the side, you can be sure this Empulse R and not the base model Empulse we have looked at for the past 22 months, though the two bikes seem to share a bit of similarity.
While the lines of the tail have been cleaned up, the Brammo Empulse R has gotten a physically larger battery pack, which extends down further from the frame. Adding in a chin fairing, the streetfighter look is a bit more muddled, and with a rider on-board the bike, it looks a bit egg-like to our eyes. Not the full-faired race replica we were hoping would compliment the naked Brammo Empulse, these pictures make us wonder what the difference between the two machines will be, if anything.
