Brammo Scooter Details Emerge

Brammo TTR render: What is next on Brammo's drawing board?

Brammo TTR render: What is next on Brammo's drawing board?

Just last month Brammo rolled out their all electric Enertia to two Oregon Best Buy locations. Last week the first Enertia was delivered to a customer in Iowa. Now new details are emerging on one of the hinted next products of Brammo. Asphalt And Rubber recently got a sneak peak at what Brammo has dubbed the Anti-scooter which they say bears a resemblance to the Honda Ruckus.

Brammo prides itself on being disruptive in everything it does and is on a mission to bring new motorcyclists on the road in zero emissions fashion. So it makes sense that their next product would be a low speed scooter. BrammoFan recently discovered a patent on the name “Encite” so it’s a safe bet mild stretch that will be the scooters name.

One of the most exciting things about electric motorcycles and EV’s in general is the ability to a lot of tuning electronically. This will allow the Anti-scooter to have it’s speed easily limited to allow riders to get on the road without a motorcycle license in many states. This will be a hassle free entry into the world of two wheels for new riders but I really hope Brammo and Best Buy will help new owners become aware motorcycle safety courses available in the customers area.

Keep your eyes peeled, we should see the Brammo scooter emerge in the next 60 days. True to Brammo fashion the Brammo team will be looking for feedback from riders before it’s design is finalized. Keep an eye on their twitter account BrammoSays. For now have a look at the electric Toyotron Hunter Electric Scooter that is also similar in looks to the Ruckus.

Edit: I made a bit of an assumption on the model being called the “Encite”. I deleted any use of the word as the name of the scooter.

    You should be waterboarded for running the picture of the prototype TTR on top of this article about Brammo’s “Ruckus-inspired” anti-scooter. I actually saw your article BEFORE the Asphalt&Rubber piece. I know there are fans of the Honda Ruckus out there. But there are also fans of the musical version of “Footloose” but it still doesn’t make it right.

    I agree, I honestly hate when people pull that type of thing and I don’t know why I did it anyway. :D Thanks for the virtual backhand. ;)

    I am going to have to say I like the small 50cc ruckus. The big ruckus is not so pretty.

    A&R visited Brammo and saw the scooter. I believe that is the first viewing of the new scoot by a non-brammo person that lived to talk about it.

    You like the Ruckus. Hmmm, NomadRip likes it, too. What am I missing? It just looks so spare and utilitarian. That seems so far from the sleek lines and curves of the Enertia that it actually makes me wonder if Jenny Gun didn’t see the scooter before any of the trim had been added. You’ve seen the pics of the rows of Enertias waiting for their final trim? Maybe that’s what’s going on.

    Yeah, I hear where your coming from with the Enertia vs Ruckus looks. You might be right about the covers.

    The Ariel Atom was kind of utilitarian and spare, no? Maybe they were pulling in that influence.
