“Aaron Bland and I worked for several seasons together on the development of the Brammo eSuperbike and eSupersport bike. Aaron’s “can do” attitude was the major factor in turning a very difficult project into a very stimulating one. We had many issues we faced in the development of these machines, most notably a lack of recourses. Onboard, the bike rode more like a bucking bronco than a finely tuned technological masterpiece. Aaron and the team dedicated after hour evenings and weekends to find solutions to the many problems we faced. Through center of gravity redistribution, front offset, wheelbase, and most importantly squat ratio, the wild beast of a motorcycle was eliminated. The end result was as if you were riding a magic carpet. The Empulse RR is the most unique, sneaky fast motorcycle I have ever ridden. Aaron’s ability to sniff out the root out a problem and push his knowledge to find a solution is the beyond any other engineer I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with”.
