FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ZERO MOTORCYCLES BRINGS THE ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE TO AMERICA'S FINEST: ZERO'S DUAL SPORT TO BE SHOWN AT COPSWEST 2009
- Electric Motorcycles: The Latest Innovation in Law Enforcement Transportation Technology -
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (October, 2009) – Zero Motorcycles today announced its attendance at COPSWest 2009, America's premier law enforcement expo, on October 20-22nd at the Ontario Convention Center. Making its trade show debut, the Zero DS electric motorcycle was designed for both on and off-road use. Zero Motorcycles has been a favorite among motorcycle enthusiasts and the Zero DS is its most versatile model to date. For the first time law enforcement agencies will have the opportunity to see a Zero DS fully outfitted with police lights, a siren and police stickers.
"Our fully electric motorcycles offer law enforcement agencies an efficient new way of patrolling their communities," says Gene Banman, CEO of Zero Motorcycles. "Officers will also benefit from the tactical advantages of our quiet, odorless and lightweight motorcycle technology."
The technology that has made Zero Motorcycles popular also offers significant advantages to law enforcement. The low maintenance and reduced operating costs of a Zero Motorcycle simplifies fleet maintenance and is ideal for enforcement agencies that are looking to reduce expenditures. It also allows officers to focus on patrolling rather than operation. The silent drivetrain enables more effective communication with each other and civilians. The absence of exhaust eliminates ventilation concerns thereby enabling indoor riding or operation in close confines.
Developed to aggressively take on urban environments and encourage the occasional detour, the Zero DS integrates revolutionary technology with innovative motorcycle design. Instant acceleration and a lightweight design combine to form an industry leading power-to-weight ratio that increases the motorcycle's range and handling abilities. At 270 lbs., the Zero DS has a range of up to 50 miles and a top speed of 55 MPH. Equipped with aggressive suspension, rugged wheels and dual sport tires, the Zero DS efficiently moves riders over any surface.
