Eco Motorcycles: Zero Motorcycles to debut Zero S in spring 2009
Eco Factor: Motorcycle powered by electric motor.
After the success Zero Motorcycles achieved with their electric Zero X motorcycle, the company is planning to celebrate more success next spring with another electric motorcycle called the Zero S. Just like its predecessor, the Zero S too will get power from an electric motor, providing a top speed of 70mph and a 60 mile range. Considering the torque of 50lb/ft we have to assume that the machine will depend on a patent-pending lithium-ion array. The company is accepting a $1000 fee (refundable) as booking charges for eager customers.
The Dark Side:
The torque and the top speed will definitely catch some ears, however the 60 mile range should be something that the company should improve upon before the final launch.
