BRP Inc. (TSX:DOO; NASDAQ:DOOO) is thrilled to reveal today two models of its Can-Am all-electric motorcycle line-up, the Can-Am Origin and Can-Am Pulse. Building on its motorcycle legacy, BRP is changing the power dynamic and opening the road to a new generation of riders and electric vehicle enthusiasts. Available in mid-2024, these first models will inspire confidence in riders of all skill levels and will be perfect for daily commuting as well as recreational trail riding. While each model has its own distinct design, ergonomics and capabilities to satisfy different needs, both are powered by the all-new Rotax E-Power technology, yielding highway-worthy speeds with plenty of horsepower and torque.
“Today, our story of innovation reaches new heights”, says José Boisjoli, President and CEO of BRP. “We have set out to reclaim our motorcycle heritage and are very proud to re-enter the market with the introduction of the first two models of our all-electric Can-Am motorcycle family. Half a century ago, Can-Am roared to victory on the track and the trail, and today, a legacy is reborn. In true BRP fashion, we are bringing our very own electric powerpack to our motorcycles, and crafting thrilling riding experiences for a whole new generation.”
The Can-Am Origin is a tribute to Can-Am’s Track n’ Trail heritage. This dual-purpose model is designed to bring new exhilaration to both the street and the trail for a more modern multi-terrain experience. The Can-Am Pulse is a balanced and agile motorcycle designed to immerse riders in the energy of the city and transform their daily commute into an electric joyride. Both models feature stunning, modern design, built to showcase state-of-the art technology, like the high-performance LED headlamp, a unique visual signature. They also offer a truly connected experience for riders.
The Can-Am Origin and Can-Am Pulse are also easy to use and easy to ride, for novices and seasoned riders alike. Without any need for a standard clutch and transmission, riders can just twist the throttle and go. Riders will also appreciate the near-silent and vibration-free experience, as well as the smooth and precise power delivery even in tight, low speed situations.
Both models are powered by the Company’s proprietary electric powerpack technology, the all-new Rotax E-Power. With instant torque on demand, Can-Am motorcyclists will be ready for the highway or any other adventure they want to embark on. Thanks to a powerful on-board charger, both models offer rapid charging times and are easy to charge at home or at automotive standard Level 2 charging stations. Moving forward, the Rotax E-Power technology will also be at the heart of all BRP electric models, across all product lines – from water to snow, to dirt and asphalt.
BRP plans on revealing full specs in August 2023, just in time to celebrate Can-Am’s 50th anniversary. In the meantime, consumers can join the community and be the first to know when the future of motorcycle riding is ready to hit the road by visiting canammotorcycle.com.
