Zero Motorcycles Returns to AIMExpo

Scotts Valley, California based electric motorcycle manufacturer Zero has announced that it is to exhibit at AIMExpo, Columbus, Ohio, September 26 - 29.
On show will be 2019 additions to its line-up, including the "Fully Smart2 Zero SR/F" - the well-received take on streetfighter styling on an electric powerplant platform with a 3 kw rapid charger that starts at $18,995.00.
At the time of its launch earlier this year Zero described the SR/F as its "most innovative and powerful" motorcycle yet, incorporating a "revolutionary" new operating system - Cypher III - and delivering 40 ft-lbs of torque and 110 horsepower." Powered by Zero's ZF75-10 motor and ZF14.4 lithium-ion battery, a single charge is said to give riders up to a 200-mile range with the addition of Zero's Power Tank (available fall 2019). The Rapid Charge System works on Level 2 charge stations and provides a platform that allows for up to three independent charging modules, with charge from 0 to 95 percent capacity in one hour.

"We're thrilled to be showcasing the 2020 Zero Motorcycles product line at AIMExpo in September," said Sam Paschel, CEO, Zero Motorcycles. "AIMExpo attracts the most influential and successful powersports dealers in North America, and we're fortunate to count many of our most valued business partners among those who will be in attendance."
Since 2006, Zero Motorcycles has established itself as one of the leading manufacturers of electric motorcycles and has built a "thriving business with a global supply chain and extensive distribution network. Utilizing the most powerful and energy-dense EV technology in the powersports industry, these powerplants provide riders with an effortless delivery of power while reducing the emissions."

Zero's range also includes the off-road Zero FX, the stealthy Supermoto FXS, the naked street Zero S and SR, and the versatile DS and DSR.
"As the powersports industry introduces more alternative-powered vehicles to the market, it is one of AIMExpo's top priorities to showcase these products and highlight the latest innovations within the industry for dealers and consumers," said Andre Albert, Director, Sales and Marketing, MIC Events. "Electric motorcycles are not just an evolution of the current market, but also represent the opportunity to reach potential new buyers."
Ironically, just as Harley is finally launching its 'Livewire', at the time of writing Harley-Davidson had not announced an intention to exhibit at AIMExpo despite having supported the show at Columbus, Ohio, in the heartland of its core market, in 2017 and Las Vegas in 2018.
