Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

-Bewezen technologie van aansprekende merken
-Actieradius van ruim 130 km
-Nationaal publieksdebuut Brammo op Motorbeurs Utrecht

Eenrum, 15 januari 2014 – Aanstaand weekend presenteert Electric Motorcycles Nederland op De Noordelijke Motorbeurs in Groningen de volledig elektrische Enertia Plus. Vooruitlopend op het nationale publieksdebuut van Brammo op de Motorbeurs in Utrecht, waar de potente Brammo Empulse sportmotor eind februari voor het eerst in Nederland te zien zal zijn, grijpt het merk de regionale show in Groningen (17 t/m 19 januari) alvast aan als generale.

Met Brammo introduceert Electric Motorcycles Nederland dit jaar in ons land een serie volelektrische motorfietsen, afkomstig uit de Verenigde Staten. Op De Noordelijke Motorbeurs in Groningen bijt de Brammo Enertia Plus het spits af.

Bewezen technologie
Met de Enertia Plus laat Electric Motorcycles direct zien dat het merk Brammo staat voor kwalitatief hoogwaardige motorfietsen met bewezen technologie. De Enertia Plus vertrouwt bijvoorbeeld op een van Brembo afkomstig remsysteem, een voorvork van Marzocchi en vanzelfsprekend een elektrische Brammo Power aandrijflijn met Direct Drive (zonder koppeling en versnellingen) in combinatie met een krachtig lithium-ion batterijpakket.

Wat prestaties betreft noteert de Brammo Enertia Plus een topsnelheid van zo’n 110 km/u en een elektrische actieradius van ruim 130 km. Waarden die deze Brammo bij uitstek geschikt maken voor het gebruik in en rondom de grote steden. Mede ook dankzij zijn compacte afmetingen en wendbare karakter van de Enertia Plus.

De Brammo Enertia Plus is in Nederland inmiddels te bestellen en is van 17 t/m 19 januari aanstaande op De Noordelijke Motorbeurs te bewonderen op de stand (nr. 52) van Electric Motorcycles Nederland.
