|27 September, 2012 - Video: Getting Around Hong Kong On A Brammo|
|Brammo Hong Kong released an interesting video of one of their Enertia electric motorcycles riding around and into Hong Kong. It's interesting since a) Hong Kong is an enormous big city, and b) you get to see how an electric motorcycle holds up in city traffic.|
In the 20 minute long video, you get to see mostly motorway riding, so no stopping (and therefore recharging the battery) except for the toll booth (around the 4:30 mark).
The first thing that will strike you is the noise level! Don't for one moment think that electric motorcycles are totally silent; they're not. The engine itself makes a whining noise, and the chain adds to that. It's quieter than traditional motorcycles, but not silent.......

|31 May, 2012 - Hong Kong: 1000 Electric Charging Stations|
|#Brammo #Electric Hong Kong is going totally ballistic with electric cars and motorcycles. Already Brammo had sold the first few electric motorcycles to their police force, and electric cars are selling pretty well for such a small territory. The number of EVs (Electric Vehicles) is growing. Maybe the total number is very small, 310 to be accurate, but last year that number was 74, so a massive increase. The government themselves have 33 EVs, and another 43 will arrive in the coming months. Another 140 will be ordered this year. |
The Hong Kong government and private companies had already installed 500 EV charging stations, but now the government has stepped in and accelerated the roll out of stations. By the end of the month of June, there will be 1,000 electric charging stations.
