Brammo products used for racing do not carry a manufacturer's warranty.
All specifications are subject to change without notice.
Electric vehicle range is affected by a number of factors including; speed, acceleration, number of starts and stops, rider and cargo weight, changes in elevation, head winds and road surface.
*The batteries we use have an amazing life cycle and are maintenance free. They're inherently extremely safe and can withstand temperatures without decomposing and, unlike other batteries, can be topped up at any time.
