OK, so the electric bike had a ringer on it. Big deal.

Former AMA Pro Superbike rider Steve Atlas decided to have some fun with a Brammo Empulse RR e-bike at Portland International Raceway, racing some club riders on 600cc motorcycles during some warm-up laps, according to Hell For Leather Magazine.

The five-minute video isn't for the squeamish, as it's taken from the vantage point of a lower part of the bike, but it does show the electric bike hanging with the others, all with the approximate volume of a skateboard going downhill.

Last year, Brammo, which also makes electric bikes such as the Enertia and Engage, received a $28 million equity investment from powersports vehicle maker Polaris Industries, which also owns neighborhood-electric vehicle maker Global Electric Motorcars.
