Stuart Pringle, Club Secretary at the BRDC commented. “We are delighted to welcome Zero Motorcycles to Silverstone for the BSB weekend. High performance bikes attract special interest, so having their electric counterparts on display will certainly provide an interesting alternative for our members as electric transportation becomes an ever closer reality for work and leisure travel alike.”

In stark contrast to the 1000cc petrol driven Superbikes that will be flying around Silverstone at speeds reaching almost 200mph on a track new to most riders, Zero Motorcycles emit zero emissions at point of use, and are almost silent in comparison. However, in terms of performance and handling, they are certainly World Class. Zero Motorcycles electric motor gives 100% torque at all times, providing instantaneous throttle response and incredible off-the-line performance. Conversely they are fully recyclable including their revolutionary lithium-ion technology that is completely non-toxic.

Champions themselves Zero Motorcycles were winners at the first race in the American TTXGP series, also in the Federation Francais de Motocyclisme - first official French electric off-road motorcycle event, and successfully completed the arduous Erzberg Rodeo in 2010,

Following record sales in the US, Zero Motorcycles are now expanding fast in the European Market with distributors in over 10 countries Europe wide. European Managing Director, Edwin Belonje has over 20 years experience in the Motorcycle Industry and his expertise for bringing products to new markets includes introducing the Hyosung into Benelux, his 10 years spent at Triumph culminating in becoming Director saw him set up Triumph Motorcycles organizations, both in Benelux and the Baltic.

He commented, “Zero Motorcycles provides a step change for the motorcycling industry. Being able to enjoy a passion, whether it’s purely as a means of transport for daily commuting, or as an extreme sport such as Motocross, without the environmental impacts of carbon and noise pollution is essential if motorcycles are to keep pace with the world drive for cleaner technology.”

About Zero Motorcycles
Zero Motorcycles is the next step in motorcycle evolution and represents the ultimate electric motorcycle technology. Unencumbered by conventional thinking about how they design, manufacture, and sell high performance electric motorcycles, they are on a mission to turn heads and revolutionize their industry by combining the best aspects of a traditional motorcycle with today’s most advanced technology. The result is an electric motorcycle line that’s insanely fast and environmentally friendly.

Zero Motorcycles first entered the motorcycle category with the launch of the 2008 Zero X electric dirt bike. Exceeding all expectations, the Zero X sold out in late 2008 and blazed the path for the long awaited launch of the Zero S on the road motorcycle for urban use in spring 2009. This was followed by the launch of the Zero MX in November 2009 designed specifically for track riding and motocross, and the Zero DS on the road, a dual sport machine that can be ridden anywhere from the city street to a gravel road, to a dirt trail.
