We love motorcycles. The best ones make you tingle when you look at them, giggle when you ride them, and scare you just a little bit (i.e. score a 90 or above on the Tingle-Giggle-Scream Index). We love going fast. And we love finding new ways and new places to go fast. Our goal from the beginning was to create motos that are easier to ride fast than anything else out there. We build electric bikes because we are in love with instant throttle response and flat, endless torque. Because we want the next bike we purchase, gas or electric, to be faster than our last one. Though it didn’t yet have a name, BRD began in about 2007 when two riding buddies, Derek Dorresteyn and Jeff Sand, who happened to have an unbelievable amount of fabrication, engineering and design experience and expertise between the two of them, fell in love with the idea of the smooth, perfectly responsive torque curve of an electric motor and started kicking around the possibilities for building their own electric motorcycle… a motorcycle that could be faster and more rideable than their gas bikes.
