The Brammo Enertia TTR race bikes are based on the same production models that consumers can buy. The Enertia TTR started as the production Enertia with its extruded aluminum frame rails, distinctive flowing bodywork, and unique battery mounting system as the basis. Where necessary, key components were then "overvolved" for the demands of racing and super-high performance. "Overvolved" is a way of thinking at Brammo that will be applied for future product offerings.
