Torque.
Torque is an American ideal. An ideal that runs deep in American Motorsport. Until now, the industry at large had employed either large displacement or motors fed via forced induction to satiate the public's appetite for immediate power. This led to the constant use of fossil fuels and the contamination of the fresh air supply in our cities. The endless march of technology and progress inspired the search for an alternative form of energy to move us from one place to another. From the past to the present, the all new fully electric 2016 Victory Empulse TT is here. It may run on electricity – but riding it is a gas.

Introductions.
The introduction to any new model of bike is generally the same: Here is the key. This is the start button. This is “on.” So on and so forth. Normally you straddle the bike, go through the familiar motions, and be rewarded with vibrations and the growl of a high-quality gasoline powered motor roaring to life between your legs. The Empulse TT is a little different. The key, the ”on" position, the start button; these are all in the same place, and everything makes sense in that regard. It’s the absence of the familiar whir of a priming fuel pump that is first noticed. Normally, this would mean something is amiss with the machine, but not with the Empulse TT. Stay the course, and hold the starter button for a moment. Silently, the gauge wipes for a second time. A barely-audible, yet quintessential electronic click is the only sound heard, and a yellow "ON" emblem flashes on the dash. Now what? Is that it? There is no auditory reward other than a healthy click signifying that electricity is moving about the system. There is no rumble, no vibrations from electrons pulsing...

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.

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...
