That, my friends, is a photo sent to me by one of the BrammoBrigade Regulars. He claims it is a picture of the display stand for the Enertia at the San Carlos, California Best Buy store. The store, which finally got its certification as a motorcycle dealer midday yesterday, immediately sold all three of its Enertias from its stock room, and sold the “floor model” to another customer early this afternoon. “Bob the Bike Guy” at the store couldn’t be reached at the time of this post, but I hope to talk to him later tonight or possibly tomorrow to get the background.
Calls to other Best Buy stores resulted in similar stories. The Cascades Parkway Store sold its bikes, but does have the floor model. They have eight more coming from Brammo . . . but they are all sold. I asked David the helpful EV guy how long it would take to get one if I told him I wanted one today, and he said “one to two weeks.”
If you wait any longer it becomes a matter of a simple equation:
Just in case you think its a bunch of hype/buzz/bull, recall the post from earlier today. If it starts selling in China, those wait times are likely to increase. The last I heard, they have eleventy billion people over there.
Here is a picture of Michael. Michael is a happy man. He just bought one of the bikes from Best Buy in San Carlos:
The only thing Michael is worried about is the moment when his wife discovers that the bike only seats one adult.
