Now that it's Wednesday, this email came from Brammo

Dear Kenneth Moore,
Thank you for your support and interest in Brammo and the 100 mph Empulse. I want to provide you an update on the production development of your Empulse. We have very high expectations of all of our products, and from the response, interest and feedback we have received, the world is eager to get their hands on Brammo’s greatest creation so far: our electric street bike. We have been testing and developing more groundbreaking technology which has proven to greatly improve acceleration. I will continue to update you about this exciting technology as news becomes available.

With such intense interest in the Empulse, Brammo teams and suppliers across the globe are working hard to deliver you a motorcycle of the level of quality Brammo riders have come to expect. We had a tough decision to make recently: Deliver the Empulse this riding season, or integrate our latest technology and deliver a superior bike in 2012. After much deliberation, we decided to be true to our values and build the best bike we can. We still have a good amount of work and testing to do in order to bring you the world's greatest electric motorcycle. We believe it is going to be worth the wait. For those of you who are interested, we plan to involve some of you in test riding the new Empulse once we have completed the safety testing.

This week we will be announcing some new prototype models based on the new technology. These bikes have helped us thoroughly test and prove the technology that is being integrated into the Empulse.

We truly appreciate your patience. Meanwhile, we have a lot of work to do. We are signing up the best dealers we can find to carry the growing family of Brammo motorcycles, so if you have a dealer you trust and respect, be sure to tell us, as we value your opinion.

Once we have appointed a Brammo dealer near you, we will be communicating with them to work with you on the details of the purchase and delivery of your Empulse. I wanted you to hear this exciting news directly and so I would be most grateful if you didn’t discuss any of this with the media until it is formally announced on Wednesday.

I will be in touch again soon...

Sincerely,
Craig Bramscher
CEO and Founder Brammo Inc.

I've wondered how much power the speaker uses.

Y'know, the one that makes some noise so you don't keep sneaking up on folks.

I think the siren from "Ecto 1" would be a good sound...

Wow! You get notes from the CEO. Damn! You are important ;-)
Yeah, I've been working through some design and engineering issues with the team. Kind of a consultant role...
NOT.

Bramscher's comments indicate to me that they couldn't meet the speed and range projections with the old powertrain. The introduction of the 6-speed gearbox should help them and make for a better bike.
