A Glimpse At Future Motorcycling Chase Movies Thanks To Zero

Think of a chasing scene between two vehicles now and most likely you’ll imagine hard-revving engines and tires screeching combined with some sirens if the police are involved too. Well, the future might sound a bit more quiet thanks to Zero Motorcycles and one of their newest promo videos.
Earlier on, electric motorcycles maker Zero Motorcycles has come up with a new video to show off its machines. But unlike other manufacturers who choose to take the cheesy “put on your helmet and go live your ride on the road” cliche, Zero took it from a more cinematic point of view.

The short ad presents a law-breaker riding a Zero FXS dualsport, which is a perfect choice for around the city hooliganism as it’s able to easily mount curbs and even go down some stairs in a park.

As expected, the rider’s misdemeanors soon trigger a police officer who starts chasing him on a bike too. And, surprise-surprise, it’s another Zero, this time a police-spec DSR model.

And this, boys and girls, might be the first zero-emission police chase we get to see. And you should better get used to it because this might be the way they’ll sound in the future.

Or better say, this is the way they won't. Honestly, electric bike and car manufacturers should at least fit some speakers to their machines to make them heard when coming. I don’t think people would like to be surprised by a lunatic hooning his/her EV ride around the streets.

Just take a look at the video below, and you’ll see what I’m talking about. It’s like they’re riding bicycles with one of them having sirens and flashing lights. There looks to be no drama at all, and it won’t be long until we’ll start to see this kind of stuff in action movies too.

We might as well go back to silent films.
