Zero S Electric Supermoto Slated for Spring 2009

Zero Motorcycles have announced the long awaited launch for their new model, the Zero S. The electric model is due to arrive next spring and comes as a follow up to the already existing Zero X. The Zero S is built to be quick, light and last but not least green.

The bike has a range of up to 60 miles and a top speed of 70 mph and it comes with a guarantee of instant torque. The performance chassis is designed by an award winning engineering team and it's specifically made to be light and ergonomic. The bike's components have been optimized for an extended range and faster acceleration.

The Zero S has has aerospace grade aluminum main framne and advanced multi-circuit front and reardamped suspension  to absorb bumps, jumps or wheelies. The bikes custom brake rotors are designed with advanced engineering simulation software which gives the Zero S better stopping performance.

The thru-axle rear hub design makes the bike have superior control and precise handling and alongside with an on-board quick charger you can plug up and power anywhere.

The bike produces 50 ft-lb and has a patent-pending lithium ion array battery that ensures a range of up to 60 miles. The transmission is clutchless and has only one speed. The typical cost to recharge the Zero S is less than $.01 per mile. We think that's pretty cheap, don't you ?

To secure a bike you will have to make a deposit of $1000, the remaining payment being due upon shipment.
