Zero Motorcycles: an electric motorcycle company
This Santa Cruz-based electric motorcycle company has an all-new 2011 lineup. Yes, they are spendy, and you still can’t get very far between charges (30-60 miles depending on the battery), but the thought of a zero emissions electric pony is thrilling to me.
I like to imagine myself like some space age Peter Fonda packing the battery cell with liquid MDMA rather than hiding coke in the gas-tank. In reality, you would spend just as much on a new Harley plus, anything that fast that is so quiet must have its roots in the philosophy of the ninja. As we continue to burn up the remainder of the fossil fuels left on this planet, it’s great to see someone stepping forward into the market with the beginnings of an alternative.
