Scot Harden (Vice President of Global Marketing, Zero Motorcycles) says: “Similar to the ‘cash for clunkers’ government promotion in 2009, Zero aims to entice traditional internal combustion engine motorcycle owners to make the switch to electric.“In offering a $2,500 trade in bonus for new customers, we expect this promotion to be a great sales tool for our nationwide dealer network.”In addition to the $2,500 trade bonus and federal tax credits, Zero customers can also take advantage of Zero Motorcycles financing. Current financing options offer no down payment and 0 percent interest for 12 months, plus 4.99 percent financing options, both with approved credit. “Cash for Carbon” will run from Jan. 1, 2013, through March 31, 2013. Consumers must print a “Cash for Carbon” voucher for presentation at their local dealership to receive $2,500 bonus. Zero Motorcycles invites interested motorcyclists to become acquainted with the 2012 product line at their local dealer. To download a voucher or find a dealer, visit zeromotorcycles.com.
