- Zero has organized factory tours and rides to celebrate the anniversary
Zero Motorcycles, the maker of electric motorcycles, has launched a limited edition 10th Anniversary model to celebrate the milestone. The 10th Anniversary Zero DSR is designed to be Zero's most elegant and refined, with signature touches of metallic blue paint, custom graphics, as well as a full complement of accessories.
The 10th Anniversary Zero DSR is a dual sport motorcycle, and will be limited to just 50 units. The Zero DSR is the first model to include a factory-installed Charge Tank, allowing owners to expand their riding opportunity by using the increasing network of Level 2 charging stations.
Founded in 2006 as "Electricross" in California, US, Zero Motorcycles is the longest running electric motorcycle company in the world.
"At a time when electric vehicles were little more than a far-flung idea, for even the most tech-savvy riders, the founders saw the potential to transform an industry," said Zero Motorcycles CEO Richard Walker. "Over the last 10 years, we've passed one milestone after another to redefine the motorcycle experience by eliminating the typical heat, complexity, noise, vibration and maintenance headaches of gas-fueled bikes. The result is exhilarating, and we're still just getting started."
Zero will host a 10th anniversary celebration on September 10 and owners will be invited to join Zero staff and notable personalities for motorcycle rides, factory tours, technical seminars, food and entertainment, a company release said.
Zero Motorcycles aren't available in India. In fact, there is no single electric two wheeler manufacturer which can boast of any performance product on the lines of the products from Zero. Part of the reason is that electric vehicles in general, and electric two wheelers in particular, have a long way to go in India, despite offering inexpensive running costs and green technology.
Then again, the infrastructure for electric mobility has yet to pick up; dedicated lanes, lack of charging points at regular distances are only some of those roadblocks. What is also important for the Indian consumer is performance. So far, the options in the electric mobility space come with limited performance, and range. And more importantly, the cost of acquiring an electric vehicle still isn't cost effective, compared to a conventional two wheeler.
