Zero S Gets Vetter Aerodynamic Tuning

After making it safely through a 3500-mile (5630 km) trip and into the Guinness Book of Records, iconic electric bike rider Terry Hershner is on his way back to Florida aboard his Zero S.

However, the Zero S is no longer the skinny bike he rode to California: the old attire was of course, quite cool, but now Terry is bent on doing things better and with even more efficiency. So he brought his Zero S to aerodynamics guru Craig Vetter for an upgrade.

With an ultra-aerodynamic fairing now in place, the Zero S is as close to the ultimate performance as it gets, and can pack around 18 kWh under the hood. This means a huge improvement in range: while the bike could do around 63 miles (101 km) at highway speed, the vetterized beast can now ride in excess of 200 miles (320 km) on a charge.

It remains to be seen whether Terry will be able to break his own record... and how will Moto Electra Racing's electric “Norton” fare. It's really nice to see people picking up on the cross-continental racing... we're heading the right way.
