New 2012 Zero Electric Motorcycles With Improved Speed and Mileage

Zero Motorcycles announced earlier this month their new 2012 model line of electric motorcycles, which, they say, are revolutionising the industry. Zero Motorcycles is now providing a bike with a range of over 100 miles and top speeds of 88 miles per hour.

“The 2012 model line is truly game changing. It marks the first time in history that riders can actually own an electric motorcycle that is capable of exceeding 100 miles of range on a single charge,” said Scot Harden, VP of Global Marketing of Zero Motorcycles. “Every model in the lineup goes faster, further and is more fun than ever before. These are not concepts. In less than three months, riders can see and purchase 2012 models at authorized Zero Motorcycles dealers.”

According to Zero Motorcycles, the arrival of the 2012 line in February of next year “will mark the first time in transportation history that a mass production electric motorcycle capable of exceeding 100 miles range will be available for consumers to own.”

The bikes will be housing the new Z-Force™ power pack, which uses a “completely new battery cell chemistry and configuration” that Zero claims is up to 95% more energy dense and is rated to 3,000 complete charge cycles before it hits the 80% capacity mark.

This means that a Zero S could travel as far as 308,000 miles before a new power pack is needed.

The Zero S and the Zero DS are both available in 6 or 9 kilowatt hour configuration, capable of respectively achieving 76 or 114 miles according to the EPA Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule (UDDS).
