Brammo Electric Motorcycles Can Now Race Against AFM Gas Bikes
In a historic move for electric motorcycle racing, the AFM has approved Brammo's electric motorcycles to participate in AFM's gas bike races. For the first time racers on electric motorcycles will be competing head-head with gas bike racers, and be allowed to gain points and championship standing. The agreement opens the door to electric motorcycles from other manufacturers, and what the AFM has done is to pre-approve the Brammo Empulse R, TTX and RR motorcycles for AFM racing.
In order to participate an Empulse owner must have qualifications to race in the AFM, and ensure they follow AFM's safety and technical regulations. The AFM adapted regulations from the TTXGP, integrating them into AFM's rulebook. An important rule is that racers must meet a minimum laptime threshold in order to compete.
The Empulse R and TTX have been approved for specific lightweight race classes, and the Empulse RR have been approved for specific middleweight classes. The Empulse R is available now for the public to purchase from Brammo's dealer network. The Empulse TTX is constructed from an Empulse R using a yet-to-be-released kit which ensures an R matches TTXGP's requirements. The Empulse RR is Brammo's non-production prototype platform, and it is only Team ICON Brammo who will race with that bike.
