There are many reasons to ride a Zero: no gasoline, penny-per-mile “fuel” costs, ultra-low maintenance, and the most seamless and connected ride anywhere.
Now added to that list: a 10% federal tax credit available in all 50 states.
The Electric Motorcycle Federal Tax Credit, also known as the 2-wheeled plug-in tax credit, covers 10% of the purchase price of a Zero, up to $2,500. Plus: Electric motorcycle chargers (e.g., Zero Quick Charger and Zero Charge Tank) are eligible for a 30% tax credit up to $1,000. These credits are available in all 50 states and apply to motorcycles and charging equipment purchased in 2015 (retroactive) and 2016.
In addition to the Federal Tax Credit, many states offer incentives, making the purchase of a Zero even more attractive.

Credits are based on the final bill of sale price for the motorcycle (including configuration accessories and additional batteries purchased on the same invoice, less taxes, fees and registration). If the product was discounted, the tax credit applies to the discounted price.
To ensure eligibility for the 30% federal tax credit specifically on charging equipment and accessories, these should be purchased on a separate invoice, which may serve as tax documentation.
This federal tax credit is retroactive for all of 2015, so all customers who purchased a Zero Motorcycle in 2015 are also eligible for the 10% federal tax credit.
*Government agencies offer these incentive programs. Availability and eligibility vary and are beyond Zero Motorcycles’ control. Many programs have limited funding and/or expiration dates. Eligibility for tax credits depends on your personal tax situation. Please consult your tax advisor, attorney, or accountant for details.
