Say goodbye to emissions as emission-free scooters take center stage.Emission-free electric scooters are growing in popularity as city dwellers look for new ways to boot around town. On the other hand, for people who crave performance and speed, they’re seen as a wimpy way to travel.
If you’re one of those speed freaks, Santa Cruz, Calif.-based Zero Motorcycles has you in its sights. The company visited Toronto yesterday to launch its Zero S battery-powered motorcycle into the Canadian market, giving urban commuters another way of going electric.
The Zero S has an aircraft-grade alloy frame and weighs a scant 102 kilograms. It can drive up to 97 kilometres on a single charge and is capable of reaching 100 kilometers per hour. A four-kilowatt, 31-horsepower lithium-ion battery pack allows it to go from zero to 100 km/h in less than four seconds.
It will sell for $9,950 (U.S.), excluding shipping costs, and Canadian pricing is expected shortly.
