Ashland electric motorcycle maker Brammo Inc. said today Eric Bostrom will join Steve Atlas as a rider for Team Icon Brammo.

Bostrom has more than two decades of experience riding for companies such as Ducati, Harley Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki. He joins the Brammo team just in time for this weekend's TTXGP North America Championship 2012 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

Feedback from Brammo's racers have provided core elements in the company's bikes, officials said. In 2009, Brammo competed in the first-ever TTXGP race and finished as the top American team. Since then, racing has been core to the development of Brammo's consumer and racing motorcycles, including the Empulse R, the world's fastest production electric motorcycle for consumers. Further elevating their rich racing history, Brammo won the 2011 TTXGP North American Championship, with the Empulse RR.
