Brammo Open link in a new window Hong Kong released an interesting video of one of their EnertiaBrammo Enertia Eicma 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.

The other thing that will strike you is that since it's not a Brammo Empulse, it's got no gears, so the engine rpm keep going higher and higher.

The bike gets up to around 75 mph, and don't be surprised... they drive on the wrong side of the road there. There's a second Enertia riding with this one, so you occasionally get to see that one as well.

Around the 13:30 mark, the electric bike arrives downtown Central Hong Kong. The gearless bike is interesting in dense traffic... no shifting can be a blessing. There obviously is no lane-splitting, so they need to stick behind cars.

As for battery usage, it looks like he started with an almost full battery, and in the end, after the 20 minute ride, he has 75% battery left, not bad for almost non-stop riding between 55 and 75 mph.
