You are here: TRANSLOGIC 49: Zero Motorcycles
 
Zero Motorcycles offers an entire lineup of electric bikes that are quietly taking to city streets and dirt trails; and by quietly, we mean without the head-turning howl of a Harley. Bradley takes a turn on one of these light-weight, emissions-free cycles and finds that engine noise isn't everything when it comes to enjoying the ride.

Ed. The bikes range from $7,995.00 to $10,495.00 base MSRP.

Without noise,you might as well be invisible--definite road kill material. Motorcycles are hard enough to notice because of their slim profile but without sound, you might as well be a bug!

These guys were at the Power Sports Dealer Expo see them and other electric Nike dealers at our YouTube site Or gumroad.com or http://gallery.me.com/hybridhomes/100030. These bike are leading the way and your video was great. Like you say it's not so much the gas saving as much as it is the no noise experience. These are great alternative transports that may lead to more alternative transportation pathways like snowmobile trails. Keep up the great promotions.

7 G's (base) for a cycle that goes only 30 miles @ 50 MPH---------naaaaaaaaaa! Maybe for City Slickers.

IF electrons can keep up with gasoline it is OK with me !

But, these bikes do not get there yet so I am not a customer, yet !

How much tax credit do you get with one of these ?

If you are going to spend the eight grand plus, you may as well buy a real bike.
