Latest Brammo Blog is LIve. Check it out!
Well, after two good sessions of fine-timing the chassis and working with the new TC system, all while logging a person best time in the low 2:01s, our third and final session of the day really showed a lot of promise. After getting hooked up with one of the faster Graves-tuned 600cc machines on track, I was able to string together a series of my personal best laps, all I the 1:59-range, with a best of 1:58.9. This was over two seconds faster than I’ve ever had the Team Icon Brammo Empulse RR around Thunderhill, and also enough to keep pace with the previously mentioned 600cc machine for eight-straight laps. And considering those times were done while plying a real-life game of Frogger at 150 mph, passing multiple slower bikes each lap, and that the best time came on the eighth and final lap, this was a big accomplishment for the development of our bike.
