Brammo Engage dyno pull
« on: January 09, 2012, 11:51:35 PM »
IET technology Dyno test Brammo Engage 100 kmh


Not sure how much of that is the dyno and how much the bike.. but it's not quiet!

No power numbers .. pity.

And here's a comparison between a gas bike and an IET-equipped bike (no idea if Brammo).. skip to 0:50 for the flyby.

How does he know when to change gears? He's probably keeping an eye on the tachometer, or perhaps he can feel the motor vibrations. I certainly don't think he's listening for the sound of the motor. I guess the lack of an audio cue might take a bit of getting used to.

Thanks for posting the video, protomech.

Looks like they took down the dynamometer video.
UPDATE: Actually, they put up a different version...
(I took the liberty of updating protomech's post.)

Smooth as butter! The engage appears to looks more refined than what we have seen in the past... looks production ready.

...wait 169kmh = 105mph right? Holy shit! May be different when actually pushing the bikes weight though right?

Also, nice shoes, but the way things look you definitely would want to make sure they are tied and not have your shoe laces flapping in the wind, or im sure you would lose them. Hopefully the production version has some kind of chain guard there.

I do like not only how smooth the shifting is, but just how "still" the bike is...no vibration, just power and speed.

And if the Engage can go 169 kmh, I would like the Enertia to hit 130 kmh please :)

Gavin

gah, if the Engage hits 169 kmh, what do you think the Empulse could do on the Dyno?

My thoughts, exactly.  I bet the top speed of the Empulse is going to get an update by production-time.

For some reason, they keep pulling and reloading the video.  I think I may have a solution....

Here's a "permanent" link to the video...on the Brammofan Youtube page:

Well, it's not such a bad idea to improve the videos. The first one showed the bike going to (only) 100 km/h, and the aspect ratio was all messed up. The second went up to 170 km/h, but was at a very low resolution. The "final" video goes to 170 and looks (and sounds) great!

I wonder if 1.5 < km/h < 170 shows the limit of the dyno, or perhaps the limit that they are testing at.

I can't wait to see the Empulse on a dyno! ;D

Keep in mind just because the Engage can spin the dyno wheel at 170 km/h doesn't mean the bike has enough power to overcome drag at that speed.

Still, nice to see that it's not really limited by gearing in the top end.
