No less than 59 Zero S bikes have already been delivered and Hong Kong officials declare these electric bikes will be used in multiple fields, starting with the public parks. Future plans include traffic enforcement and patrolling, special police events, marathon support, country park service and more.

Ophelia Lin, Yuen Ho Trading Company Ltd. General Manager declares: “We are glad to see the Hong Kong government’s order become the largest order in Asia. Deploying electric vehicles like the Zero S helps reduce Hong Kong’s carbon footprint. We are very passionate about contributing to environmental protection. To introduce Zero to Hong Kong means a small but impactful contribution in the long term."

According to the Zero press release, "all 59 motorcycles are based on Zero’s highly popular 2012 MY Zero S. The Zero S has an approximate range of 89 miles on a single charge with a top speed of 88 miles per hour. The Police motorcycles have been up fitted with a series of components developed exclusively for traffic enforcement."

The total number of bikes to be supplied to the Hong Kong government was not made public. We expect the 2013 and 2014 MY Zero machines to be available for the Hong Kong customers, too.
