2016 Victory Empulse TT


RACE PROVEN ELECTRIC POWER

EMPULSE TT

This is a street legal electric race motorcycle. Built on the same platform that set an American lap-speed record at the Isle of Man, it accelerates up to 100MPH+ and the battery fully charges in 3.5 hours. Where it matters most, the Empulse TT is fast. It is 10,400 watt hours of proof that Victory doesn’t just prove performance, we advance technology. The sport-tuned inverted front forks and adjustable suspension are engineered to provide track-level performance. It has the fastest battery charging speed, greatest lean-angle, and advanced regenerative braking system. Wherever the Empulse goes, it electrifies all audiences.

Proven at the most demanding race on the planet

2015 Isle of Man TT


Where there is no room for error, we proved performance. The Isle of Man TT is the fastest, twistiest, and gutsiest race on two wheels, the perfect location to introduce the world to our electric motorcycle. For 37 miles, we pushed a top speed of 144.34 MPH. We averaged 111.62 MPH. We set the record for an American electric bike, and it was our first attempt. We didn’t just prove that we belong; we stepped up on the podium, and proudly waved the flag of modern American muscle.

The Fastest Charging Battery on the Market

The Empulse’s battery fully recharges in 3.5 hours, and up to 80% in two hours. With a battery capacity of 10,400 watt hours, the Empulse TT can achieve up to 140 miles of range per charge. Advanced regenerative braking returns power to the battery every time you let off the throttle, and all this battery technology comes with a 5-year warranty. No matter how you measure it, this is the best performing electric motorcycle battery on the road.

LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HORSEPOWER.

Victory Motorcycles is a brand wrapped up in performance. Our class-leading motorcycles carry a reputation of reliability, performance, and handling. We engineer modern American muscle into every bike that rolls out of Spirit Lake, Iowa. This is more than a business to us; we have an inextinguishable passion to push the limits. We build bikes that rip off from the green light, blast through city streets, and crave the open road. We build bikes to win NHRA races. This year, our NHRA team is racing to be the first Pro-Stock team to break 200 MPH. We build bikes to break land speed records. Our endurance team is training to circumnavigate the world in 100 days. Our Stunt Team — well, there’s no predicting what they’ll do next. This year, we don’t just talk about performance; we go to all ends of the earth to prove our commitment to performance. The Victory Motorcycles 2016 lineup is the most exciting ever, with the muscle, confidence, and technology to inspire riders around the world.

The stolen Victory Isle of Man TT Zero racer has been recovered.


Stolen prototype race bike never got out of town and was recovered by the Talent OR Police Department Sunday night.

Medina MN July 20, 2015 – The first Victory electric race bike that Irishman Lee Johnston rode to the podium in the Isle of Man / SES TT Zero race event has been returned to Brammo Headquarters in Talent, OR after police tracked the machine down to a local individual. The Victory prototype electric TT motorcycle, powered by Brammo, was recovered with damaged bodywork and the rear wheel removed, but largely complete, by police in a search of an individual’s rental residence at 10:30 pm Sunday night.

The Talent Police Department worked the case aggressively throughout the weekend and were able to get information on the bikes whereabouts by late Sunday afternoon. A warrant was served for a rental residence ending in the custody of two individuals. The main suspect, who has a long history of run-ins with law enforcement, told police he intended to disassemble the bike and sell the parts, though nobody has admitted actually breaking into the Brammo headquarters where the race bike was on proud display.

No current or former Brammo Inc. employees have been implicated in this case.

The fastest American motorcycle in the class, Johnston took the #3 all-electric racer to a top speed of over 145 miles per hour and an average lap speed of 111.062 miles per hour in the SES TT Zero class finishing in third place in the class.

“Everyone at Brammo are relieved to have bike #3 back in the stable and are extremely grateful to the City of Talent Police Department for working diligently to solve this case. We'll need some time to fully assess any damage done, but from initial inspection it appears mostly cosmetic and repairable. What a bizarre event this has been. Thank you to everyone that...

Thousands expected at the 34th Faro Motorcycle Rally in Portugal (Thu 16th to Sun 19th July)

Celebrate the launch year of Indian Motorcycle in Portugal
Indian Motorcycle only launched in Portugal this year, which means it’s the brand’s first time at the incredible Faro Motorcycle Rally.

Now in its 34th year, the Faro Motorcycle Rally (AKA Faro 34) is the biggest biker gathering in Southern Europe and draws in around 20,000 bikers from Thursday right through to Sunday night.

Its appeal is simple; hot and sunny weather, sparkling sea, great roads and plenty of live music and entertainment.

Highlights include:

24-hour bars – Live concerts each night – Erotic shows each night – Wet T-shirt contest – Bike Show – Trade stands – Biker Fair – Tattoo stands – Tattoo contest – Camping

“The atmosphere is the perfect mix of hospitality, good music, terrific weather and incredible views for riders passing through the Algarve region in the South of Portugal,” explains Indian Motorcycle marketing specialist, Miriam Torrens, who is manning the Indian Motorcycle booth over the four-day-long rally.

She adds: “The rally takes place just a few kilometres away from the sea where you can enjoy the best seafood in the region. These are the ingredients that have drawn thousands of bikers over the years, mainly from Portugal, Spain and the UK, but also from the Netherlands, France and Germany.”

The rally itself is hosted on recreational grounds just north of the airport (co-ordinates 37 01’28.00”N, 7 58’38.00”W).

The entry price is 45 Euros for all four days and includes coupons for free meals. Attendees get an official goody bag containing a T-shirt, rally badge, sticker and draw tickets to win a new motorcycle and a week in Daytona.

Entry is also available from 2pm onwards on the Saturday for 30 Euros, but this does not include the meal coupons or...
