The Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb competition is a chance for manufacturers to show off their latest machines – and put them through the grueling gauntlet. This year Zero Motorcycles will be competing with their new 2019 Zero SR/F electric motorcycle. But can an air-cooled electric motorcycle be competitive in such a high power race? Zero thinks so, and here’s why.

Zero electric motorcycle pulls over Tesla in ‘quietest police pursuit ever’
It’s hard to deny how much fun it can be to drive a Tesla. With instantaneous torque and no worries about burning a piston, who among us hasn’t put the pedal to the floor when we had the chance? Perhaps that’s why Teslas have a knack for attracting police attention.
And in a comical twist of fate, we now get to see what it looks like when a police officer on an electric motorcycle pulls over an electric vehicle.

Earlier this summer, we had the opportunity to test a 2015 Zero DS (Dual-Sport) Motorcycle for a few days. What a blast we had! If you are used to riding traditional ICE motorcycles than, yes, you will miss the exhaust note, the vibrations and shifting through the gears. With the Zero, you get none of that, but as it turns out, that doesn’t detract from the riding experience at all. Actually, the fact that it is a near silent bike adds to the experience. We took the Zero DS to Bear Mountain in New York for some spirited riding and we had a great time.

Every segment of the transport industry is going electric and now it’s time for the recreational watercraft segment. A new Sacramento-based startup called Free Form Factory partnered with electric motorcycle manufacturer Zero Motorcycles to use their electric powertrains in what they claim is “the world’s first electric, stand-up personal watercraft”.
The watercraft, called Gratis X1, is quite expensive, which is to be expected with a relatively new technology, but it also offers several advantages over its more common gas-powered counterparts. expand full story

In term of size and market share, Zero Motorcycles is the clear leader in the electric motorcycle segment. And that’s mainly because the company has been consistent over the past few years in releasing significantly improved model lineups with better battery pack technology and more power. They haven’t been known to sit on a successful model, but they improve on them quite frequently instead.
We have seen it with the 2016 lineup last year and today, the company did it again with its new 2017 lineup. With now over 200 miles of range on a single charge for some of its models, Zero is making it a lot easier to choose an electric powertrain over a gas-powered motorcycle and to say goodbye to gasoline – that’s a real press photo from Zero above by the way. expand full story
