Zdnet.com features a story on Brammo’s new Empulse electric motorcycle. According to Brammo, the Empulse is the electric motorcycle to feature water cooling and can run 100 miles on a single charge. Brammo also says that their motorcycles are eligible for the recently passed 10% federal tax credit for plug-in vehicles.

How do electric motorcycles compare to four-wheeled electric vehicles for range? Electric motorcycles don’t have dual power from gas engines and batteries like the Toyota Prius, so there is no fossil fuel backup if you start running low on charge.

Hell For Leather reports that the Empulse can get up to around 100 miles on a single charge, but you can extend the range up to 130 miles if you lay off the speed.

The Empulse won’t be taking a casual ride anytime soon. Asphaltandrubber.com reports the Empulse hit the track at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California for the e-Power Championship on July 25th.
