In July, Zero Motorcycles expanded across the states, reporting that its electric bikes would be sold in eight major dealerships throughout California, and in Colorado, Minnesota and Michigan.
And the company reported Tuesday that it’s continuing this expansion, this time heading north into Canada.
Nine Canadian dealerships have signed to sell Zero’s product line-up at the retail level:
- Greater Vancouver Powersports (Surrey, British Columbia)
- All Season Motorsports (Calgary, Alberta)
- Mitchell Cycle (Mitchell, Ontario)
- Electric Motorcycles Windsor (Windsor, Ontario)
- Motorsport Newman (Pierrefonds, Québec)
- Equipements Les Chutes (Shawinigan, Québec)
- L’Ami Denis Sherbrooke (Sherbrooke, Québec)
- Duncan Motorsports (Duncan, British Columbia)
- Oakville Yamaha (Oakville, Ontario)
The electric motorcycle company says the addition of traditional motorsports dealers in Canada furthers Zero’s strategic efforts to give retail consumers hands-on access to see, feel and test ride all five models in Zero’s 2011 line-up.
John Lloyd (Vice President, Global Sales, Zero Motorcycles) says: “Just as we have recognized the strong consumer demand for the Zero experience in a retail environment in the U.S., we know there are many Canadian enthusiasts who have long been awaiting the opportunity to test ride our products first-hand. We are absolutely thrilled to have such strong new partners in Canada and we look forward to helping them succeed.”
Zero says it will continue adding new powersports dealers in both the U.S. and Canada with numbers expected to reach 50+ by the end of the year. Those interested in buying or learning more about Zero Motorcycles’ new dealership locations can visit Zero’s website for more details.
