Knowing Roehrich, I want to cheer him on. But Brammo's simultaneous announcement of its new and cheaper Empulse gives the Roehr an immediate uphill battle.

Brammo has clearly set the bar for everyone else...at least as far as claims go. Guess we'll get to see them back up the claims (or not) at Laguna.

Sorry, but the Roehr bike is fugly. Brammo nailed it with theirs, to me, it looks exactly like what I'd been hoping an E-Bike would look like.

Czyzs' bike looks awesome too, but I'm sure it will be priced beyond any average buyer's range when or if it goes into production. Hope I'm wrong.

Brammo set the mark high with that 100mi ride. Good luck to Roehr. Hope the price comes back to earth.

Cool looking bike I guess just don't understand the attraction. Won't the disposal of the batteries conter-act the whole purpose?
