Cool Decals – But can you do better?

Brammo’s website just added these decals to its store:

Decals - $49.99 in the Brammo Store

The decals are described as:

These exclusive Brammo Velocita decals were designed by Sirlin Enterprises specifically for the Brammo Enertia and Enertia Plus. Available in four colors: Black, Green, Orange and Blue. These decals complement the styling and colors of your Brammo motorcycle.

Why not make the minimum 37 pieces?

They are certainly attractive and, if you’re so inclined, they add some color to the center of the body of the Enertia.  I don’t mind the “black hole” on my bike, which is mostly blue, but on the Enertia Plus prototype in the picture, above, it definitely adds some flair.


But what if you’re so inclined — to add some flair — and you’re a frustrated out-of-work designer who is tired of living in the basement of your parents’ house, or in a van down by the river?  Maybe you have some creative ideas bouncing around inside your head and, when you look at the Enertia, you see something else entirely?  Maybe you’d like to try your hand at Photoshop or Illustrator or the good ol’ analog pencil  – pen – or brush?

Now is your chance.  Below, you will find a line drawing of the side view of a Brammo Enertia.  See the two side panels – one above and one below the diagonal line of the frame?  There is your carte blanche, your canvas, your as-yet-untouched future masterpiece.

What are you waiting for? The contest closes on Valentine’s Day (that’s February 14, Domenick) (UPDATED: ENTRY DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL FEBRUARY 28) so get busy and work on it in between planning your romantic dinner, pasting construction paper hearts on the shoebox on your desk, and writing “Mrs. Justin Bieber” over and over again in your diary.

Not Your Basic Black

Brammofan’s Name-the-Color Contest!

Brian Wismann, Director of Product Development at Brammo, recently posted these pictures of his Enertia with a new color on the body panels:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wismann described it as “a very pretty metallic black that’s got a nice ‘sparkle’ in the sun.”  Brammo is considering this as a real color option for 2011, so the obvious next step here is to come up with a name for the color.

Over on the Brammo Owners Forum, there have been several great suggestions, such as “Solar Eclipse,” “Panther Black” and, my favorite (because it’s mine) — “Deepwater Black.”  (It’s better than my first color name: Gulf Tarball).

The idea is to come up with several choices, put up a poll, and then honor the winning name with something like the Brammofan Coffee Mug, but perhaps we can get Brammo to provide the prize this time (?) (is this thing on?) (Bueller?). If they don’t come through with something special, the declared winner will get his/her choice of a Brammofan Mug or Trucker Cap.

Name the bike: It’s runoff time!

The results are in: RReMoto leads by one vote over Kinetic.  Bolt has put in a respectable showing at #3, but, as some grumblers have informed me, “Chevy owns the ‘Bolt’ name.”

That would explain my recent visit to the hardware store for a bolt –  three salesmen greeted me at the door.  When I told them I wanted a bolt, one asked, “Do you have a trade-in?” One said “I don’t think we can do that, but let me ask the sales manager”  The third one asked, “can I interest you in our hex-head appearance package?”

[insert rim shot]

So, in the interest of page views of fairness, I present the runoff poll between the two winners.  Vote early. Vote often, etc:



Name the Bike: Time to Vote for your Favorite

The Name the Bike contest has 12 entries, and the contest judges deem that a minyan.   Here are the entries so far.  I only included entries which made sense and/or amused me.  And yes, I added one of my own that, frankly, I can’t believe no one considered.

You may vote for your three favorites.  It is likely that we will have a runoff between the top two or three vote-getters.  Please remember to vote early, vote often, and be aware that at least one of you will vote for your own entries multiple times, so it pays to get your friends involved.  And finally, remember that we are naming a faster, longer-ranged version of the Enertia:
