The November 2015 issue of Motorcycle Consumer News contains a 4-page, instrumented, full test of the 2016 Victory Empulse TT. In short: they liked the smooth power and acceleration, overall good looks and sporting capability. They didn't like: the unreliable battery consumption gauge (they had to push the bike 1.5 miles home), poor range and power, terrible seating and they didn't care for the rear shock, which they said was hard to adjust and kept bottoming out during their rides.
Measured facts include 4750 rpm at 60 mph; "wet" weight of 473.0 pounds; 103.6V in Eco mode and 117.6V in Sport mode; a measured range of 66 miles over their standard route on which the 2014 Zero SR (with "Power Tank") achieved 98.7 miles; power was measured at a maximum of 49.51 HP at 70 mph (the Zero SR was measured at 72.79 HP on the same dyno); measured top speed was 96 mph; the quarter mile was completed in 15.47 seconds at 94.6 mph; 0-60 time was 7.3 seconds; and a really good 60-0 mph stop of 108 feet was achieved. The Empulse was given an "Overall Rating" of 3.5 out of 5 dots.
