Brammo + Bicycles = Elmoto Bikes?

A little bird just shared some interesting photos, which appear to originate from Germany and which also appear to show a cozy relationship between Brammo and the electric bicycle manufacturer, Elmoto.  In fact, it appears that the two bikes are just different faces of the same coin (sharing the same display, at least).

Here’s image #1:


And, from a different direction…


Frankly, I’ve always thought that the design of these two conveyances was complementary.  Perhaps the two companies decided to work together to help move the world to a wider acceptance of two-wheeled EVs.  Perhaps there has always been some sort of relationship between the two, given the similarities in design.

Or, perhaps, I need to get back on my meds.

Either way, further discussion of these findings will likely occur over on the Brammo Owners Forum. (Note: you don’t have to be an owner to join).

    Um.. the Elmoto is not a bicycle so far as I know. No pedals, and a fairly high speed, and the power on that bike is well above Europes standards for electric bicycles. I met the Elmoto guy when he came to Palo Alto a few months ago, nice guy, and an interesting story.

    As for what you’re saying – it looks to me like the show organizers simply placed their booth space back-to-back. Maybe the show organizers thought it would be good to have the two electric manufacturers at the show next to one another?

    Well spotted Brammofan – yes Brammo and ElMoto are indeed working together in Europe both at shows and in dealerships. This back to back display is the first manifestation of that marketing partnership.
