Zero Motorcycles, Inc. Key Developments

Zero Motorcycles Launches Expanded 2016 Line of Electric Motorcycles

Zero Motorcycles unveiled their complete line of 2016 motorcycles. Following a record year in 2015, the manufacturer promises to inspire an even broader range of riders with two new models, an innovative new motor design, faster charging and advanced lithium-ion cell chemistry powering a high battery capacity and efficiency to date. Zero delivers even greater value by lowering the price on two base models while adding more features and performance throughout. The 2016 announcement began with the introduction of two new motorcycles, bringing Zero's offering to six distinct models. The supermoto-inspired Zero FXS promises to turn mundane city streets into an urban playground. It features 70 ft-lb of torque, weighs less than 300 pounds and boasts components specifically tailored to provide exceptional control and responsiveness on the street. Adventure riders demanding maximum performance will enjoy the new Zero DSR. With 106 ft-lb of torque, the versatile dual sport is quick on the pavement and demonstrates greater prowess on dirt roads and trails. Zero Motorcycles delivers the speed and convenience of Level 2 charging. With the new Charge Tank accessory, riders will be able to take advantage of the rapidly expanding network of public charging stations and charge three times faster. The Charge Tank works on the popular J1772 standard and effectively recharges a Zero in two to three hours.
