While we've already had a couple glimpses of the the Enertia TTR, Brammo's TTXGP entry, scootin' along the highway, a photo taken during a recent Road Racer X interview with the company's chief cook and bottle washer, Craig Bramscher, gives a hint at the racer's possible appearance with its warpaint in full effect. Looks pretty nice and we don't even mind the little shout-out to sponsor and distributor, Best Buy. Thankfully, the green stripe seems present to add balance to the blue and yellow and not to shout, "Hey, look at me! I'm green and I'm green, get it?"
Besides the sneak peek photo, the interview also reveals some of the backstory of how Bramo got mixed up in this whole electric motorcycle business. Apparently, we can thank Al Gore for this cool bit of battery-powered bike. Originally planning on building Ariel Atoms for the U.S. market as well as a V-12 supercar, the release of An Inconvenient Truth made the venture unpalatable. While Bramscher did mull an electric Ariel (please re-mull, sir), he settled on motorcycles and bippity-boppity-boo, Brammo stands today on the verge of retail sales and a participant in the first internationally-renowned electric motorcycle road race.
