Enertia Plus – Time to Commit

Brammo has sent emails to U.S. residents who have placed orders for the Enertia Plus, sharing details on the production model and asking them to confirm their interest in purchasing. 

For now, just the facts:

The much anticipated Enertia Plus is now entering production and your pre-order has reached the point where you will need to confirm your order by following the link below. Once you have confirmed your order you will be contacted with a delivery date, and at that time you will be expected to make a non-refundable deposit of $1000. The Enertia platform has advanced a great deal since it was first introduced to the world in 2009. Leveraging what we’ve learned from customers along with key developments in electric vehicle technology, The Enertia Plus represents the longest range, highest performance Enertia we’ve offered to date.

In the Enertia Plus, two BPM44/70 battery modules take the place of the six smaller modules found in the standard Enertia. The chemistry in the Enertia is Lithium Iron Phosphate. The chemistry in the Enertia Plus is Lithium NCM (Nickel Cobalt Manganese Oxide), sometimes referred to as Lithium “mixed metal oxide”. Both chemistries are well known for their safety and very good life cycle performance. The Lithium NCM has the benefit of greater energy density, which is how we achieve more capacity for the same weight. A higher nominal battery bus voltage (88.8Vdc) and lower series resistance means less voltage sag, higher continuous performance, and greater overall system efficiency for the Plus as well.

Upgraded Motor – Although the power level remains the same, the actively air-cooled permanent magnet AC motor features greater efficiency which reduces the heat generated, allowing more performance to be pulled out of the bike before it reaches its thermal limit.

New forged Triple Clamp with much improved steering lock and slightly modified geometry and ergonomics. Reduced trail, plus the increased lock makes for a dramatic improvement to low-speed maneuverability without sacrificing stability at speed. Handle bar position is roughly 1″ higher and 1″ back towards the rider which was unanimously judged to be more comfortable for a variety of rider sizes.

New Cast Aluminum Headlamp Brackets clean up the aesthetic of the front end and make servicing parts in that assembly much easier. The brackets also reposition the dash closer to the triple clamp and change the angle slightly. The new brackets were designed to accept accessories like the optional windscreen with a simple bolt-on kit.

 

New Enertia Plus Motor Controller which allows for greater configuration options and more robust communications with the Brammo VCU (Vehicle Control Unit).

Auto-Start Module Integration – The Enertia Plus now starts with the key switch and does not require the button press. The button has been replaced with a stylish aluminum Brammo bull head badge. The Enertia Plus also starts charging when plugged in to AC power. No special key position or steps are required.

Warranty – The Enertia Plus comes with a 12 month warranty and the Brammo Power BPM44/70 batteries with a 24 month warranty.

The MSRP of the 2012 Enertia Plus is now $10,995 – and can be financed for as little as $220 per month subject to credit approval.

    It’s been almost a year and a half since they announced the Enertia Plus, and now that they’re finally in production, they’re jacking the price up $2k? I was pretty excited about this bike when it was first announced, but the delays and price hike are just too much.
