If you’ve got a gas motorcycle but want to swap it for an electric motorcycle, the timing could be just right. Zero Motorcycles has just announced that they are re-instating their “Cash for Carbon” trade-in program that adds an additional $1,500 on top of the gas bike’s assessed trade-in value.
Zero’s Cash For Carbon trade-in program has been one of the company’s most successful in the past.
And now the incentive is back for a limited time to capitalize on the rush of new and returning riders that are hitting the road after the COVID19 lockdowns.
To qualify, Zero customers will need to trade in a gas-powered motorcycle towards the purchase of a new SR/F or SR/S electric motorcycle from Zero.
As explained by Zero:
“Cash for Carbon increases the trade-in value allowed by an authorized Zero Motorcycles dealer of any titled gas motorcycle a rider uses as trade towards the purchase of a new 2020 SR/F or SR/S. From now until August 15, 2020, buyers who bring in a gas bike as trade-in towards the purchase of a new Zero will be given an additional $1,500 credit on top of the trade-in value assessed by the participating dealer on a given motorcycle.”
The extra $1,500 gets stacked on top of any existing incentives on the state level, plus a new federal incentive that offers up to 10% federal tax credit.
That can add up to $4,000 off the purchase of a new Zero SR/S or SR/F electric motorcycle. With a price tag of around $20k, that’s a 20% discount.
We recently reviewed the Zero SR/F electric streetfighter motorcycle and found it to be a wild ride (video above).
We also attended the recent unveiling of the new Zero SR/S in NYC, which was designed to be a fully-faired and more comfort-oriented version of the SR/F. Check out that video below.
