Could you believe Zero Motorcycles has been around for 10 years already?

The company began in 2006 as Electricross, an all-electric motorcycle company started by former NASA engineer and moto enthusiast Neil Saiki. Fast forward 10 years, and the Scotts Valley, Calif., company Zero Motorcycles is one of the leading electric motorcycle manufacturers, currently offering a six models – the S, SR, DS, DSR, FX, and FXS.

To celebrate its birthday as the longest-running electric motorcycle company, one more model was recently added to the lineup – the 10th Anniversary DSR.

“At a time when electric vehicles were little more than a far-flung idea, for even the most tech-savvy riders, the founders saw the potential to transform an industry,” said Zero Motorcycles CEO Richard Walker.

“Over the last 10 years, we’ve passed one milestone after another to redefine the motorcycle experience by eliminating the typical heat, complexity, noise, vibration and maintenance headaches of gas-fueled bikes. The result is exhilarating, and we’re still just getting started.”

The 10th Anniversary is exclusive; only 50 will be produced. The bike is a base DSR upgraded with metallic black paint, custom graphics, and a full line of accessories.

Zero says “It’s the first model to include a factory-installed Charge Tank, allowing customers to expand their riding opportunities by using the increasing network of Level 2 charge stations. As a versatile dual sport, the 10th Anniversary Zero DSR is a nod to Zero’s off-road roots.”

“We estimate that Zero riders have offset about 13 million pounds of CO2 and saved over $2,000,000 on gasoline,” said Abe Askenazi, Chief Technology Officer. “While the economics and environmental impacts tell a compelling story, the real advantage to our customers is the thrilling magic carpet ride.”

Zero says it is also offering a special gift to buyers. Through the month of June, purchasers of a new 2016 Zero S, Zero SR, Zero DS, or Zero DSR will receive a $1,000 gift card. Customers purchasing a new 2016 Zero FX or Zero FXS will receive a $650 gift card. (This offer does not apply to 10th Anniversary Zero DSR.)

“We’ll also cover the cost of all the clutches, oil filters, spark plugs and oil changes for your new Zero over its entire life,” joked Askenazi. Zero motorcycles have no clutch or oil and require no routine powertrain maintenance.

Zero will also host a 10th anniversary celebration on September 10. Owners will receive invitations to join Zero staff and notable personalities for motorcycle rides, factory tours, technical seminars, food and entertainment.

“This event may be the first-ever motorcycle gathering where the attendees make more noise than their bikes,” said Walker.
