Victory Empulse / Re: victory empulse for $7k ?!?
« Last post by TVETT on Today at 04:55:58 PM »
I got mine for $5999. Do some haggling if you decide to take the plunge. Even got them to throw in the 240V charger (MSRP $400-$500) for $100.

Yes I am aware of that thus sale price, I was also hoping to steal an Octane as well but there only knocking $1000 of msrp which is not enough considering they are going out of business.

Well, just be aware that Polaris announced it is closing the doors on its Victory line. Parts will still be available for 10 years, but yeah, Victory is no more.  See this thread for more info:

I have a chance to grab a brand new 0 mile Victory Empulse TT for $7000 I assume this is a great deal considering MSRP was 20k probably going to pull the trigger just looking for some quick thoughts and feedback

Brammo News And Views / Re: Victory Motorcycles winding down
« Last post by Shinysideup on January 17, 2017, 08:40:23 PM »
Thanks, Richard.

Here's the pertinent part:

“We’re going to continue the electric part of the business,” Menneto responded. “Future products and markets will develop, both on-road and off-road. What will change are those efforts will transfer over time to Indian in the two-wheel space and Slingshot in the three-wheel space.”

When I asked if his response meant we’ll one day be seeing an Indian with an electric motor, he carefully said: “I think that’s a fair assessment.”

I think you will find some statements in this interview interesting:

Brammo Enertia / Re: 110v to J1772 Charging
« Last post by jazz999 on January 17, 2017, 12:37:08 PM »
Thanks, appreciate the info. I think I read somewhere that the Enertia can handle 240v but not sure.  Anyway, I just want to be able to charge it.  I don't really want to add the additional weight but lack of 120v pluggins is making it difficult to charge away from home.  My work is putting in 4 charging stations but they will only be J1772 only.    Thanks again

Two different things.

1. http://300mpg.org/2015/03/31/the-diy-j1772-charging-adapter/

This is a J1772 inlet to allow you to connect an non-J1772 charging equipment to a J1772 supply, like most commercial car charging stations. Assuming that your charging equipment is compatible with 240V.

This should work fine to let you plug the Enertia charger into a J1772 EVSE. Note that this WILL NOT increase the speed that you charge at, and depending on the station may be quite expensive. Blink charges $0.04/minute for members, you're using approximately $0.0016 of electricity per minute. 2500% markup!

2. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VIKM62Q/

This is portable J1772 EVSE to allow you to connect a J1772 charger to a non-J1772 supply.

You're adding a lot of weight and cost for flexibility; in effect these two things together do the same thing as a $5 IEC C19 cable (connect 120V wall plug to vehicle for charging), but also give you more flexibility to plug into a J1772 supply or later to connect another type of J1772 EV to a 120V or 240V wall supply.
