Zero Motorcycles NewsFor the second consecutive year, Hollywood Electrics was named Zero Motorcycles’ Top Dealer.
The West Hollywood, Calif., dealership has been a supplier of Zero Motorcycles since it opened its doors in August, 2009.The dealership is key to Zero Motorcycles, considering it specializes in all-electric motorcycles, and was the first dealer to join Zero’s nationwide network in Southern California.Harlan Flagg (Hollywood Electrics) says: “Our passion and commitment to electric motorcycles is obvious to any person who walks through the front door.“Zero Motorcycles exceeds all of our criteria by offering an outstanding, high quality product along with great customer support and a two-year, unlimited mile warranty, an exceptional guarantee for any motorcycle.”Zero Motorcycles reports that Hollywood Electrics continues to exceed expectations in sales volume and has also kept customers interested with their innovative approach to electric motorcycles. Hollywood Electrics has been designing and creating custom Zero Motorcycles since the beginning allowing customers to have a unique and individual motorcycle while still enjoying the benefits of owning an all-electric motorcycle.Scot Harden (Vice President of Global Marketing, Zero Motorcycles) says: “Hollywood Electrics is a well-respected motorcycle dealer in California and we are proud to name them our Top Dealer for 2012. With our recent strides in electric motorcycle technology, we are looking forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with them for 2013.”While Zero Motorcycles’ dealerships across the country operate independently, Zero works closely to support their dealerships with product support and sales promotions. Zero Motorcycles recognizes the efforts of their dealers to promote the benefits of riding all-electric motorcycles including the price of gas, affects on the environment and tax incentives.

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends—the weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
In this week’s first segment, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the much anticipated Yamaha MT-10 SP. That’s the model with the Ohlins semi-active suspension. It’s only been available in Europe for the last couple of years, but finally the good news is, that it’s coming to America. The big question is, whether the extra 3k you’re going to have to pony up for the Ohlins is actually worth it, or perhaps there’s just not that much improvement over the stock KYB suspension that has suited the Yamaha MT-10 so well until now?
In the second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with Val Collins. Val grew up on motorcycles and learned to love speed, however her real love is Formula 1 tunnel-boat racing. These are the guys and gals that are strapped into a tiny cockpit and then hurtle down the straights at 120 mile per hour and pull 5G in the corners. We attended the recent season finale in Lake Havasu and watched our friend Mike Quindazzi try to take the win. Val chats with Teejay about her love for two-wheels and tunnel-boats. Yeah, it’s crazy stuff.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode and have a great Thanksgiving Holiday!
