Braaap, the Australian Motorcycle Company are leading the mass adoption of electric motorcycles, through the production of EV Motorcycles delivering a lower priced petrol alternative.
With a mission to create a positive impact by developing products and experiences that make people feel alive, Braaap, is poised for growth through a capital raise to expand in the US and launch its exciting new range of e-motorbikes.
Braaap CEO, Brad Smith says that every other EV is more expensive than its petrol powered rival, Braaap are changing that.
“It is a really exciting time for Braaap with the production of EV Motorcycles and being able to deliver a lower priced petrol alternative to the market, especially at a time where the cost of living pressures, especially petrol is at an all-time high,” says Brad Smith.
"Motorcycling is a passion, We love riding, but it’s also the most cost effective way to commute. Nothing better than riding past the petrol station.”
“Braaap is bringing to the market a cost effective and electric vehicle, environmentally friendly motorcycle option. This is the game changer. Our offer of a lifetime warranty is also a very attractive proposition.”
In addition to seeking capital through a raise on new equity crowdfunding platform Swarmer for the e-motorcycle expansion, funds will also support the creation of a motorcycle ownership subscription model.
"Braaap is here to revolutionise the ownership of motorcycling, no more loans or debt thanks to the new subscription model. We have a unique vision for the future of motorcycling, It’s Electric and it doesn’t require you to own a bike, but have access through a unique membership model,” said Brad Smith.
