Electric bike range breaks cover

Electric motorcycle manufacturer, Zero Motorcycles, has unveiled its 2010 model range. Take a peak...

Leading global electric motorcycle manufacturer, Zero Motorcycles, has lifted the cover from its highly-anticipated its 2010 line-up at the Daytona Bike Week. Previously Zero bikes were available in white, white and erm, white. But now, at long last, consumers can pick from various colour graphic packages.

Zero currently offers four models: Zero S (Suerpmoto), Zero DS (Dual Sport), Zero X (Off-road) and Zero MX (Motocross).

Equipped with upgrades and aesthetic changes, the 2010 model line includes a “revolutionary” new Z-Force Air Induction System on the S and DS models. A platform for performance, this system allows Zero to produce more horsepower from lighter and more compact motors by increasing the airflow through the heart of the motor.

Zero is also introducing a new throttle technology that modulates the increased power to provide riders with more precise control over the acceleration. All 2010 motorcycles are powered using Z-Force power pack technology with new and more precise cell monitoring.

According to Zero the cumulative result of all this technology is “a longer power pack life, more power, greater acceleration off the line and superior handling”.

Zero Motorcycles range from R56 000 to R75 000, can be ordered online and are shipped globally. For more information visit their homepage here
