Just posted on Brammo’s new photo site are some pictures of the Empulse RR Racebike being ridden by Aaron Bland, Brian Wismann, and Andy Leisner. If you’re a regular reader of Brammofan, you know that Aaron Bland is the Mechanical Engineering chief at Brammo, and Brian Wismann is the Product Development Director.
But who is Andy Leisner? Here’s how he describes himself in his Twitter bio: Former professional motorcycle racer, current motorcycle industry executive, competitive bicycle racer and Type-1 diabetic of 33 years.
After racing motorcycles in National and World-Championship competition into my early 20s, I have worked in motorsports and action sports for my entire career. I am currently the Managing Partner of Hardcard Holdings LLC, a sports representation, consulting and management firm. I am also the COO of Hardcard Systems, an RFID-based sports timing and scoring system and event-management company.
Andy – if you’re among the millions, thousands, dozens of Brammofan readers, we’d love to hear your impressions of the RR. How was the ride? How did it handle? Furthermore, if you could explain why you burned out the motor the day before the Laguna Seca race, we’d love to hear that explanation as well.
