BRP is embracing electrification and the company unveiled two electric motorcycles for Can-Am.
Known as the Origin and Pulse, the bikes are expected to arrive in mid-2024 and pave the “road for a new generation of cyclists” while attracting electric vehicle enthusiasts.
The Origin draws inspiration from Can-Am’s Track n’ Trail heritage and is billed as a dual-purpose model that brings a new level of “both street and trail exhilaration.” The Pulse, on the other hand, is a “balanced and nimble motorcycle designed to immerse riders in the energy of the city and turn their daily commute into an electric ride”.

The company hasn’t said much else about the bikes, but they feature LED light units as well as a bold design with yellow accents. We can also see short fenders and what appears to be a cluster of digital instruments.
Specifications are due out in August 2023, but BRP said the models are powered by Rotax E-Power technology. It promises to deliver “plenty of power and torque” as well as “highway worthy speeds”. The company also said the bikes will be easy for novices as owners can simply twist the throttle and go, enjoying a “nearly silent, vibration-free experience.”
In addition to unveiling the electric motorcycles, BRP also showed off the new Sea-Doo Rise. The electric hydrofoil board will arrive mid-2024 and aims to “democratize the hydrofoil”.
The company didn’t say much about it, but did note that the model has retractable handlebars and riders will be able to stand, lie down or rest on their knees. The rise is also adjustable as owners can navigate the water without foiling as well as partially or fully deploy the wing to foil above the water.
