Zero Motorcycles Announces an Indonesian Distribution Partnership with Garansindo Technologies

Zero Motorcycles announced an Indonesian distribution partnership with Garansindo Technologies. The new distributor, that also represents well known brands such as Jeep, Fiat and Chrysler, will extend their business operations to include a new division within their company that will be solely focused on the distribution of Zero's premium electric motorcycles. Garansindo will offer both 2014 and 2015 models. Using the Z-Force(R) Power Tank accessory, the 2015 line offers motorcycles that travel up to 298 kilometers in the city. The flagship Zero SR offers the fastest acceleration with 0-100kph in just 3.3 seconds, 144 Nm of torque and an instant 67hp on hand. The industry leading Z-Force(R) powertrain embodies a philosophy of "sophisticated simplicity" by maximizing the exhilaration of riding and eliminating needless complexity. With instant torque, a nearly silent belt-driven system and no shifting, riders need only focus on enjoying the ride. For the owner, there is no routine powertrain maintenance and the 'fuel' cost is only about a penny per mile. Initial shipments of 2014 models including the Zero SR, Zero DS, and Zero FX models will arrive in November. 2015 models will begin arriving in February.
