I applaud Brammo for putting their bike on the track against IC engine sportbikes and really racing.
The AFM is a NorCal club which has produced several talented riders.http://www.cycleworld.com/2013/03/05/electric-motorcycles-eligible-for-sportbike-classes-in-afm-roadracing/
In an unprecedented move, the American Federation of Motorcyclists (AFM) is allowing electric motorcycles to compete head-to-head on track with conventional internal-combustion-powered machinery.
According to AFM President Berto Wooldridge, Oregon-based Brammo was looking for a way to showcase its new Empulse sportbike. “They wanted to compete within the existing class structure against gas-powered bikes with similar power-to-weight ratios and performance,” he said. “We believe this is a historic moment in motorcycle racing, and we are happy to have made it possible.”
