San Jose State University Police Rides Zero DS Motorcycles

The fact that Zero's electric motorcycles are spreading in more and more law enforcement agencies in the US and around the globe is not exactly fresh news. However, it's really nice each time we learn about a new place where electric bikes are used, and such a place is the San Jose State University Campus, where Zero DS machines are to be seen form now on.
The University purchased two Zero DS bikes for two patrol officers. The massive range these bikes offer is simply great for the job, and both officers reported that they sometime ride as much as 10 out of the 12 hours in a shift and still have power in their battery packs.

Even more, as these bikes are swift and silent and have no gas emissions, they make great vehicles for patrolling in places where cars could not venture, even indoors. Stealth factor is a nice complement for being able to squeeze between barriers, pillars, even pedestrians, in case of an emergency. The DS stands for dual-sport, and this means these bikes are especially made for all sorts of terrain, trails and rows of steps included.

And with the ridiculous cost of $0.01 (€0.007) per mile, its obvious why more law enforcement agencies start buying electric machines.
