Electric motorcycle manufacturer Brammo is looking to raise funds to further fuel its expansion, seeking investors on the venture capital website EarlyShares. While most of the details of the capital raising are for investors eyes only, it has been leaked that Brammo is looking at the possibility of manufacturing an electric cruiser in a similar vein to Harley-Davidson’s Electric Livewire concept.
Dubbed the eCruiser (no points there for innovative naming), it currently looks like a cross between the Harley-Davidson Livewire and an MV Augusta Dragster. Obviously this single render is hardly indicative of what the bike would actually look like (if it’s ever built) but it’s great to see the market for electric bikes is beginning to cover all styles and tastes.
Brammo recently slashed the price on its range. The Brammo Empulse can now be purchased for $10,000, a massive $7,000 discount. This years model receives a discount of $5,000 (down to $14,000). Ironically, these reduced prices are to do with Brammo’s IPO, as they are seeking volume before going public.
For those interested in investing in Brammo, the minimum amount you’ll need to pay is a cool $25,000, or two and a half 2013 model Empulse’s.
