More Than Just Green: All-New Electric Motorcycle

(NAPSI)-Here’s a truly electric concept: a dirt bike that offers performance and fun, allowing riders to enjoy themselves without disturbing nature or neighbors.

While many Americans are opting to drive motorcycles, which get better gas mileage than cars, a number of environmentally conscious consumers are going one step further-and coming up with Zero.

Now hitting the trails is the 2009 Zero X, a high-performance electric dirt bike that utilizes a proprietary lithium-ion power pack and a handmade, aircraft-grade aluminum frame to deliver surprising power and explosive acceleration. With a 23-horsepower electric motor and a total weight of 151 pounds, it can keep pace with conventional gas off-road motorcycles without the related noise and pollution problems.

Built from the ground up using the ultimate electric motorcycle technology and boasting 50 foot-pounds of torque, the Zero X is a stealthy machine that races up hills, flies over jumps and splashes through streams. And it can all be done without disturbing nature or neighbors.

New features on the Zero X make it faster, stronger and more durable for handling the most demanding terrain. Upgraded elements include the drivetrain, frame, suspension, brakes, wheels and tires.

Unencumbered by conventional thinking about how they design, manufacture and sell high-performance electric motorcycles, Zero Motorcycles is on a mission to turn heads and revolutionize the industry by combining the best aspects of a traditional motorcycle with today’s most advanced technology. The result is an electric motorcycle line that’s incredibly fast and environmentally friendly.
