Brammo Tests Freshly Tuned Empulse RRs at Thunderhill
Thought Brammo was done tweaking the Empulse RRs this racing season? Hell No! Apparently 2nd and 3rd place podium finishes at Laguna Seca weren’t good enough, as a matter of fact, history shows us that 1st place isn’t good enough for the illustrious Team Brammo (What a fanboy thing to say ).
Anyway, this last weekend Brammo was busy testing an updated pair of whips piloted by E-Boz (Eric Bostrom) and Steve-O (Steve Atlas). Upgrades to software are now in place that remedy some of the issues encountered at Laguna Seca along with new and improved motor controller code, and the bikes are also sporting new bodywork with improved aerodynamics. One white (E-Boz), one black (Steve-O), both would look absolutely bad ass in any color IMO. (Yes, again with fanboy speak.)
So what are improvements without results? Yeah, Steve-O shaved off an impressive 4 seconds from his previous best at Thunderhill, you dont have to be a fanboy to be impressed by those results. The Empulse RR race-bikes are already lapping circuits in 600cc territory, at the pace these machines are being improved, we may see liter-bike times in a matter of a couple years, or less! Keep it up Brammo!
ATTENTION: I will be at Miller Motorsports park next weekend… if there is anything you guys would like me to ask Team Brammo or or any of the other teams at the event, please let me know. Any pictures you would like me to take, let me know! Leave a comment or email me and I will try my best to make it happen.
