Brammo Motorsports has just raised $10 million in venture capital funding for the Enertia electric motorcycle. According to Brammo CEO Craig Bramscher, that is enough to bring the Enertia into production.
What is especially interesting is the source of part of those funds, Best Buy Capital, yep, the Best Buy you know as an electronics store. Hmm, … I wonder where those Enertia motorcycles will go on sale?
Over 100,000 people have expressed interest in purchasing the Enertia through the company website. Although that is no guarantee of actual buyers, the Smart car had a similar website campaign and they had a crush of buyers when it finally became available.
