Victory Empulse TT is Here



When Victory bought Brammo most knew it was only a matter of time before the Polaris brand turned to EV's. The timeline seemed imminent after Victory Charger trademark documents surfaced, finally some 6 months later the polished product is here. Meet the Empulse TT.

Although its not quite what was expected, its certainly not unexpected. See the new Victory Empulse TT is simply a rebadged Brammo Empulse R reaturing mild upgrades.



Granted Victory did put in some wrench time on the Empulse. The Victory now offers a 10% larger battery pack, a narrower rear tire (160 down from 180), a newly designed seat and most exciting, a rubber cush drive.

The addition of a cush drive should ease the chain lash reported by most publications when increasing throttle inputs or shifting gears.

Other notables are carryovers from the Empulse's days as a Brammo. Brembos continue to arrest progress and the adjustable Marzocchi/Sachs suspension stays on as well. Victory says the Empulse TT offers 54 hp, 61 ft-lbs of torque, will charge in 3.5 hours, travel up to 140 miles between charges and will do the ton with ease.

It will be interesting to see what a mass market dealer network does for the Empulse, Victory has entered new territory, they are the first major manufacturer to retail an electric motorcycle. If you're interested check out Motorcycle.com's first ride report.

Its great to see this product come to market with some slight upgrades from its previous form. Ultimately I am still most interested in what the Victory Charger will be like when it comes out. How will it improve on the Empulse, and will it end up being a much more mainstream bike than most other electric bikes that are currently on the market?

3.5 hour charge time isn`t bad at all especially with that sort of range which for the average commuter is just about what they need, although better charge times and range for extended trips could go a long way in helping them in the future.
