All Electric Motorcycle Coming to Electronics Retailer

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, June 25, 2009

Buying a motorcycle from a big electronics store? I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. It's a motorcycle unlike any other. Brammo is all electric...and can travel at highway speeds for up to 45 miles on a charge. It plugs into a standard outlet to get juiced up again in four hours time. It is also equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth wireless technologies....and will be sold...in some Best Buy stores initially. Brammo CEO Craig Bramscher...

"We thought who'd be the best people and the best company to partner with to sell something that's really consumer electronics you ride. And that's when we came up with the idea of working with Best Buy. They've invested in the company."

The Brammo is a big ticket item...about 12 thousand dollars. But Bramscher says 85 dollars worth of energy....will get you about 15 thousand miles. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
