MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.—Polaris Industries Inc. has acquired the electric motorcycle business of Brammo Inc. for an undisclosed price. Polaris previously had an 8 percent share in the electric motorcycle manufacturer, when Brammo was looking for further capitalization in 2011. Since then, they’ve partnered on projects in motorcycles, off-road and on-road vehicles. Now, Polaris is expected to start making Brammo’s electric motorcycles—including the award-winning Enertia and Empulse (pictured)—in the second half of the year in its factory in Spirit Lake, Iowa.
