So where can we buy a Brammo now?
« on: June 12, 2015, 06:19:51 PM »
Is Polaris making Electric bikes using Brammos parts or can we no longer get one from either?

The Brammo Dealer Locator still lists stores that sold bikes.  Some of these might have stock on hand.  For example, Seattle E-Bike used to have a used black Empulse R for sale for $14k as recently as a month ago.
2013 ICON Brammo EBoz Spec 32 (#6)
2012 Current Motor Super Scooter (given to another Current owner for parts)
2007 Suzuki Boulevard C50T (traded in for wife's 2017 Zero S)

I just had a pretty bad experience there, FWIW.

Do tell.  They just had a bad experience, too:  A fire.

The most awful service I've seen done to a bike in 20 years of riding:
http://brammoforum.com/index.php?topic=3026.0

I've had everything done minus engine rebuilds (clutches, rear drive unit, you-name-it) and never seen such shoddy work performed).

Short version of above link: Attention to detail non-existent. 5" scratch in top plastic. Greasy hand prints all over top plastic, headlight aimed sky-high, front tire @ 22 PSI (It was there since May 9th, yeah, it got low). Didn't check work performed for correcting problem.  Bike came back in worse cosmetic shape than I left it in.  Nothing to do with the fire, it was all preventable if they just *cared*.
