Zero Motorcycles will show four
motorcycles in the company’s 2010 line-up at Daytona Bike Week in
The S, DS, X, and MX model electric
motorcycles will be available for rides on a demo course at the Cycle
World International Motorcycle Show in the Ocean Center.
The 2010 mopdels feature upgrades and
cosmetic changes, including a "Z-Force Air Induction System" that
Zero says allows the electric motors to produce more power from
smaller components by increasing the flow of air through the motor.
New Corbin-designed seats will provide
a lower-seat option for the S and DS models, and new graphics
packages allow "personalized styling," according to Zero.
Meanwhile, Zero has acquired the
talents of a former Buell engineer. Abe Askenazi, Buell’s director of
engineering, has joined the all-electric company and will be Zero’s
VP of engineering.
Askenazi worked on development of 26
models for Buell and contributed to some important patents.
