The Brammo Empulse is one badass electric motorcycle, and this cutaway video goes beneath the skin of this electric crotch rocket to show what makes it go.

As we covered in our reviews, the Brammo Empulse is no joke on either the streets or the race track. But what makes it all go? That’s where Brammo’s Brian Wismann comes in, as he takes us on a technical overview of the high-tech inner workings that make the Empulse one of the best electric motorcycles on the market.

With a 110 MPH top speed and up to 128 miles of city driving (55 miles of highway cruising) between charges, the Brammo Empulse is also the only electric motorcycle with an on-board 3kW charger. This gives it access to over 7,000 Level 2 fast chargers, which allows the 9.3 kWh lithium-ion battery pack to be completely recharged in less than two hours. All of that for a starting price of $16,995, or $18,995 for the hotter-performing Empulse RR.

The almost-six-minute video gets pretty damn technical, and I know some of you really love this sort of thing. So instead of me babbling on about this and that, just hit the play button and let Brian explain to you what makes the Brammo Empulse so damn awesome.
