Best Buy to Sell Brammo electric motorcycles

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2009

Best Buy to Sell Brammo electric motorcyclesYou use Best Buy for TVs, washing machines, computer peripherals and cell phones, so why not use them to shop for a $12,000 electric motorcycle? Why the hell not? Brammo and Best Buy have plans to sell the $11,995 Enertia electric motorcycle at five West Coast Best Buy stores in May.

Eventually Brammo would like to sell bikes at every Best Buy location around the world, but they want to see how the initial test works out. They should probably have pimply faced geek squad dudes drive around on them for promotion. And so they are diverted from touching anyone’s computer.

Tankgrip lets motorcycle passengers get a grip

TankgripAnyone who has ridden a motorcycle knows that the person on the back can feel uncomfortable when you are in motion because sport bikes typically have no handles for the rear passenger to grab. When riding with your girlfriend its cool for her to wrap her arms around your waist, but other times waist holding isn’t so cool. When your boys want to go for a ride and you don’t trust them with your bike alone, it’s not so cool to have them hugging you.

A guy from Belgium has come up with a solution called the Tankgrip. The designer says the prototype took 4 months to build and ended up looking like a telephone handle on the tank of the bike. In the end he came up with a pair of handles that attach to the tank of a sport bike with a streamlined shape.
