2010 Street Electric
Zero Motorcycles announced today the debut of its 2010 Zero S electric motorcycle. Its flagship street legal supermoto now has more power, increased acceleration, and enhanced power pack technology. Continuing the innovation that they are known for, Zero has integrated its newly developed Z-Forc Air Induction System into the Zero S to enable greater performance.
The cumulative result of this technology is a higher top speed, better performance off the line and improved ride quality. In addition to more performance, Zero is offering color graphics packages and two new Corbin seat options for the first time.
“The Zero S continues to be the most advanced production electric motorcycle on the market, and the enhancements for 2010 make it faster, more durable and better looking,” says Gene Banman, CEO Zero Motorcycles. “With significant performance improvements, the Zero S is ideal for urban riding and short trips on the freeway. Not only will the Zero S have more range and power, but it’s more fun and comfortable to ride.” ”
Central to the performance improvements on the Zero S is the revolutionary Z-Force Air Induction System. The newly developed system allows Zero to produce more horsepower from a light and compact motor by increasing the airflow through the heart of the motor. Zero is also introducing a new throttle technology that modulates the increased power to provide riders with exacting control over the acceleration. The 2010 Zero S is powered using the latest generation of Z-Force power pack technology that includes more precise cell monitoring and lightweight lithium ion technology.
In addition to the increased performance capabilities, consumers now can choose between color graphic packages or Zero’s classic white on all four models, allowing riders to express themselves through personalized styling. The new seat options on the Zero S are specially designed by Corbin to provide a more comfortable and performance-oriented ride. Those interested in reducing the stand-over height of the motorcycle can now select a Corbin low seat option. The aesthetic changes in combination with Zero’s signature exposed twin spar aircraft grade alloy frame make for a sleeker and more visually appealing motorcycle.
The 2010 Zero S offers instant torque and power from a standstill, plus smooth acceleration as you race out of turns-all without ever needing to stop at a gas station. Built from the ground up using Zero Motorcycles’ proprietary Z-Force power pack and aircraft grade alloy frame, the Zero S features an industry leading power-to-weight ratio that increases its range and maneuverability. At 270lbs, the Zero S has a range of up to 50 miles and a GPS verified top speed of 67 MPH. The Zero S is designed for optimal performance off the line, in sharp turns and while navigating obstacles. Instant acceleration and lightweight design enable the Zero S to take on any city street, hill or obstacle.
The Zero S is priced at $8,995 (after a 10% U.S. federal tax credit). Some states and provinces offer additional incentives. Consumer financing is available in the United States for those who qualify. The motorcycle can be purchased online now and will begin shipping in the United States at the end of March. The Zero S comes with a 2-year limited warranty.
