Confirming what we already knew, Brammo has officially announced that it will be racing at Laguna Seca in the e-Power Championship in two weeks’ time. Taking to the track with its new Empulse RR race bike that’s based off the new Brammo Empulse, Brammo will be reunited with racing rivals MotoCzysz and Team Agni (the latter has not been independently confirmed).
With the addition of Brammo to the line-up, the FIM’s e-Power Championship race at Laguna Seca is looking like the electric race of the year, as the “Flying Banana” of Lightning Motors, which is currently leading the TTXGP points standings in the US, will race at the event, along with Betti Motors who have been dominating the European rounds of the e-Power Championship.
With MotoCzysz’s TT Zero winning E1pc also in the mix, this might be the only race this year to feature all the top bikes in the industry. Noticeably absent however is Mission Motors, which is sitting out the 2010 racing season to focus on bringing their Mission One sportbike to market.
Brammo will also be launching the Brammo Empulse while at Laguna Seca, but hasn’t let it slip yet who their rider will be, and if the tech specs on the Brammo Empulse race bike will mirror its production specifications. More information on that as we get it.
