Brammo Empulse RR Racebike Photos

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.

On LinkedIn:

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.

Andy Leisner, again.

Andy Leisner, probably right before he ruined my weekend.

Brammo TTXGP Qualifying Report

Posted By admin On June 11, 2009 @ 4:05 pm In News | No Comments

The world’s first no-emissions motorcycle race is now just hours away as the 23 teams from around the world hit the track tomorrow, June 12. For additional information about the event, visit

Team Brammo Enertia Best Buy Racing manager, Brian Wismann, who’s also Brammo’s director of product development, is thrilled with the progress the team has made and said, “Our crew is working smart to further refine the settings on both Enertia’s to achieve the right balance of speed and range, and we believe that we’re close to having the optimal mix. Starting with the same Brammo Enerita that customers can buy instead of a one-off, high-budget garage project has both challenges and advantages but we felt it was important to demonstrate the capability of a commercially available product and advance the category of electric powered transportation.”

To see interviews with Brian and other team members, go to Brammo’s YouTube channel.

Andy Leisner of Hardcard Holdings, the motorsports management firm that is assisting Team Brammo, said, “The experience on the Isle of Man has been incredible and we can’t thank Best Buy enough for all of their support they’re providing us, both from all of their infrastructure and promotional. I have been associated with some of the top racing programs in the world and the Brammo organization has brought a new level of wisdom and thinking to the sport. It’s no wonder they’re a leader in the design and production of electric motorcycles.”
