Two Wheels: Brammo names Jeremy Dory brand "Evangelist of the Year," awards him Empulse R
Here's a story with an ironic twist.
Jeremy Dory is a Chevy-Volt-owning, AutoblogGreen-reading guy (Hi, Spiffster!) who, after falling in love with the Brammo Empulse electric motorcycle, started up a blog called Empulsebuyer and became something of a brand evangelist. Now, Brammo has rendered that domain name, well, completely inaccurate, and Jeremy couldn't be happier.
You see, the software engineer won't be buying an Empulse R after all. He doesn't need to. Brammo has recognized the work he's done and the devotion he's displayed and is giving him one. Yes, giving. Like, for free. If that's not cool enough, the company flew him to Daytona for the TTXGP World Championship to tell him.
This is not the first time the Oregon-based company has made such a move. In 2010, it turned Brammofan into a Brammo man by awarding that evangelist of the year an Enertia. It may, however, be difficult to top the efforts of these guys in the future.
Consider that, besides tracking all the Brammo news in his blog and being the voice of reason in countless internet discussions, Dory is also the author of the Electric Motorcycle Price & TCO Calculator. This tool allows you to compare costs of electric and gas-powered motorcycles over time. If that doesn't impress you, we can only add that he has also posted a pic of the cutest Brammo babe ever. Top that!
"Empulsebuyer" expects to receive a white Empulse R sometime early in the new year and, thereafter, will be known as Empulserider. We, of course, look forward to reading his many tales of Empulse ownership on his new blog. Scroll below for the official press release.Permalink | Email this | Comments
