Posted Apr 7, 2009

Zero Motorcycles has put together an electric motorcycle that has 31 horsepower, 62.5 lbs. of torque, and hits top speeds of about 60MPH. The new motorcycle is called the Zero S and it is a follow-up to the Zero X, a bike that had about a 20 horsepower engine.

The Zero S can drive about 60 miles without needing a recharge. To recharge the full battery, it takes about 4 hours. The Zero S is made of aircraft grade aluminum and has a custom Z-Force power pack for acceleration.

The cost of the bike is about $10,000 or putting $1,000 as a down-payment. The Zero S will begin shipping in May.
