Zero Motorcycles Triumphs for 2nd Year Running
– Zero S voted European eMotorbike of the Year 2012 –

LONDON (May 15th, 2012) – Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in electric motorcycle manufacturing, today announced that for the second consecutive year the Zero S has been named as “eMotorbike” of the Year 2012” at Europe’s Clean Week 2020 elections hosted at the Zolder circuit in Belgium. The event, aimed at providing an annual review of future-fuelled, environmentally friendly vehicles, brings together a diverse mix from the motoring and motorcycle industry, energy, technology, public and private sectors, to provide an independent analysis of alternative powered transportation technologies available today.

The 2012 Zero S ZF9, which won the “road” section of the week-long event, is the first production electric motorcycle capable of exceeding 100 miles of range on a single charge. It’s top speed of 88mph, broad torque band and stealthy acceleration, together with brushless motor and regenerative braking allowing riders to recoup energy during deceleration, make it best in class, an opinion shared by the panel of twelve specialist European journalists who tested extensively all the vehicles presented at Clean Week 2020.

Edwin Belonje, Managing Director, Zero Motorcycles Europe, said. “We’re delighted the Zero S has defended its title for a second year running. The Zero Motorcycles 2012 range of electric motorcycles represented a step change, with technology to take the rider further, faster, as well as being designed to exceed the longevity expected of a conventional motorcycle.”
