Brammo Enertia Plus
For $1,000 extra, the Plus doubles the range of the three-year-old base-model Enertia to 80 miles. That’s more than enough for urban commuting, which is exactly what this bike was made for. Though it looks like it might have been designed by an Ikea focus group, the Enertia can handle city abuse, with a Marzocchi suspension and Brembo brakes more often seen on Ducatis. And in a refreshing twist, it not only hits but exceeds the claimed top speed of “60 mph plus” — we had it going nearly 70 mph uphill.
WIRED Relaxed position and twist-and-go operation make this an ideal first bike. Tight geometry is dialed for carving up traffic.
TIRED A passenger seat would be nice. Slowest in our test from a dead stop.
