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.
