In the article, Bramscher mentions that they have more than $6 million in pre-orders.
That is around 500 - 600 pre-orders. Brammo is expecting the pre-orders to hit 1000 by the end of September? That seems unreasonable if the numbers Bramscher is quoting is recent and is accurate.

Just keep in mind that a pre-order is not an order and is definetly not a sale. Tesla had over 1500 reservations for their first year and then had to scramble to finally sell 600! (They are now over 1000 sold.) This concept of reserving a spot in production is new to the industry and we'll see what that translates into real sales.
