2011 Zero XU Urban Crosser Motorcycle Launched
The company has also put a price tag on the new Zero XU model. Pricing starts at $7,995 MSRP, but a federal tax credit can be applied if purchased with a second power pack.
The Zero XU can be purchased online now and will begin shipping in the United States during mid-March. It comes with a two-year limited warranty, and prices don’t include local shipping, applicable taxes, PDI and road registration fees.
Thanks to the removable power pack and optional stand-alone charger, the new Zero XU can basically be charged anywhere, making it attractive for buyers who do not have access to garage or street level charging at their homes or apartments.
The bike is offered with a quick-charge option that cuts the recharging time down by approximately fifty percent to one hour. The additional charger that enables quick-charging can also be used to charge the power pack separately from the motorcycle. Those who own a 2011 Zero X or Zero MX can use their power packs interchangeably with the new Zero XU.
“We’re excited to announce our fifth model for 2011. The Zero XU is ideal for those living and working in a city,” said Gene Banman, CEO of Zero Motorcycles. “With no shifting, quiet operation, comfortable ergonomics and optional onboard storage, riders of all experience levels are able to focus on simply enjoying the ride. Add to that the ability to remove the power pack and the Zero XU becomes the ultimate urban crosser.”
