Zero Motorcycles Reveal New Highly Efficient 2013 Line

 
Zero Motorcycles has announced its 2013 model line of bikes, which features an average power increase of 99% and the introduction of the world’s longest-range production electric motorcycle, the Zero S, capable of a whopping 137 miles in the city.

(Note: We also recently saw that a Zero S helped set a new electric motorcycle world record.)

“With up to 137 miles range in the city, a top speed of 95 mph and a CHAdeMO accessory that allows recharging in around an hour, the 2013 model line is truly exceptional,” said Richard Walker, CEO of Zero Motorcycles.

“This year’s lineup offers breathtaking acceleration, new eye-catching designs and the innovative ability to customize the riding experience to each individual’s preferences via a mobile application. We invite consumers to discover the experience of riding a 2013 model by contacting an authorized dealer to sign up for a test ride or to place an order. The new lineup arrives in January.”

Zero Motorcycles Get Even More Efficient

The increase in efficiency is thanks to the new Z-Force motor which has been integrated into every 2013 motorcycle. Completely air-cooled, instant torque, a nearly silent belt-driven system, and no shifting; riders are going to enjoy their spin atop the 2013 line of bikes.

Riders will also have the ability to charge faster than ever, with each Zero now capable of charging to 95% of capacity in an hour or less thanks to the CHAdeMO charge stations, by way of an optional accessory.
 

 
It seems that Zero Motorcycles just continues to make its bikes more efficient, as just last year we were heralding them for their increased speed and mileage.

Zero plans to begin initial deliveries of its complete 2013 model line to North America by January 2013. On top of that, with each motorcycle being 100% electric, consumers may be eligible for government rebates or credits.
