2011 Zero Motorcycles Go to the Indy Dealer Expo
“Our strategies allow us to produce exceptionally high quality electric motorcycles that balance performance, range, weight, affordability and availability. In addition, our new dealer business model is equally cutting edge for today’s rapidly evolving retail environment,” said John Lloyd, VP of World Wide Sales for Zero Motorcycles.
This year, all Zero Motorcycles models come with several technical improvements as well as a new look, including a complete overhaul of the Zero S and the Zero DS. Every model is now ‘quick-charge’ capable using an optional upgrade that allows the motorcycles to charge nearly twice as fast.
In addition,riders can now take advantage of J1772 public charging stations by using an optional accessory, for the first time on an electric motorcycle. The entire lineup is equipped with upgraded suspension systems, a revised Z-Force powertrain, more precise charge indicators, new higher performance brakes and industry-standard component features.
Other highlights to the product line include street legal configurations of the dirt bikes and a new maintenance free belt drive for the street and dual sport models.
“To give something back to the community that has helped us to build our new lineup, at this year’s Dealer Expo we are extremely proud to donate a 2010 Zero Motorcycle to Cycle World’s Joe Parkhurst Foundation auction to benefit the college scholarship program for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation,” added Scot Harden, VP of Global Marketing for Zero Motorcycles.
