Brammo Releases Electric Bike Specs, Adds Second Rider to TTXGP brammo enertia ttr 5 560x279

With the TTXGP only a handful of days away, and with many of the competitors already crating and shipping their race bikes to the Isle of Man, we are starting to see more press releases and updates. This one from Brammo, we are admittedly a little late to, but its important none-the-less.

At the IOM TTXGP, Brammo will be fielding, not one, but two Enertia TTR’s in the event. So far this would seem to be the only team that is fielding a 2-bike team. Cocky or Confident, time will be the judge. Brammo has also released specs and deminsions on its Enertia TTR, you can find them after the jump.

Similar to the MotoCzysz E1pc, the Brammo TTR is running a modular battery system, this time comprised of 8 battery units. However, the motor configuration for the TTR is listed as a single unit in contrast the the E1pc’s variable triple housing unit.

One of the things that has concerned us about the electric motorcycle’s for the TTXGP is the weight of the bikes; after all, batteries are not light. Brammo lists the TTR’s weight at 360lbs, nearly the weight of a Ducati Superbike, but will it have the power and handling to match?
