Zero X

Hi,

Have you folks seen/heard of this Zero X electric motorcycle?

First Ride: 2009 Zero X electric motorcycle

It weighs just 150 pounds! No mention of the range, but they plan on a street bike later, too.

ZERO MOTORCYCLES – The Electric Motorcycle Company - Homepage

They are claiming 40 miles on the Zero X, and up to 60 miles for the future street bike. They do demo's around the country, a guy on our local dirt bike board got to hit one up a few weeks ago. He had nothing but praise from his parking lot demo.

I love the idea of an electric dirt bike. There are several available and in the works right now. Get the range and durability up there and I'll gladly trade my gas burner for one. Everyone loves the big 4 strokes for their linear power delivery. They got nothing on electric!

Hiya,

They ran a 24 hour endurance race with these, and the winners did over 1,000 laps! They set records for electric motorcycles. There's a cool video of the race:

Zero Motorcycles sets electric motorcycle endurance record

Here's the "street" version (really a supermoto?), which also has a video:
