SANTA CRUZ, CA – February 25, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in the electric motorcycle industry, today announced a partnership with the American Motorcyclist Association to fuel excitement and expand membership in the world’s largest motorcycling organization. The AMA Club 1924 and Zero Motorcycles will give a new Zero DSR to one lucky winner selected from sweepstake participants entering at select events.

“We see this as continued investment in the sport we all love,” said Scot Harden, Zero Motorcycles Vice President of Global Marketing. “The AMA advocates for riders’ interests at all levels, and this is a great way to introduce both new and existing members to the thrill of electric motorcycles.”

About the AMA

From the street to the track to the trail, millions of Americans enjoy motorcycling. Some ride to work every day. Others ride for pleasure on weekends. Many ride off-road, or journey to places near and far. Still more seek the thrill of competition.

Since 1924, the AMA has protected the future of motorcycling and promoted the motorcycle lifestyle. AMA members come from all walks of life, and they navigate many different routes on their journey to the same destination: freedom on two wheels. As the world’s largest motorcycling organization, the AMA advocates for motorcyclists’ interests in the halls of local, state and federal government, the committees of international governing organizations, and the court of public opinion.
