At this point, however, must still go online to the bikes, and Bieda claims to a couple of hundred models on order.

Electric motorcycles are new, of course. There’s a range of models already on the in Canada, but most of them the form of budget-priced scooters and and many of those are government-mandated not to 32 km/h.

The Zero, on the other hand, is a roadworthy motorcycle that can than keep up with and, says its inventor, Saiki, will accelerate 0 to 100 km/h in about five with an electronically governed top of about 110 km/h.

The Zero’s pack is of the lithium-ion variety, Bieda explains, although more expensive than the lead-acid units, it offers a energy density.

It powers an motor that develops up to 30 and features a sophisticated cooling the company is calling Z-Force air The electric motor itself is low on the bike’s frame for better and handling, with a clutch-less transmission and chain final

Brakes are discs, front and and the front forks are inverted with some models, adjustability.

The Zero will be available in a of models, and all are motocross/supermotard in flavour, a lofty riding position and creature comforts.

The Zero S bike comes with a seat height of 864 mm, although an low seat of 813 mm will be available. All varieties: dirt, street, and sport reflect the company’s background. The frame is apparently of aircraft-quality aluminum and the key to the bike’s is its light weight.

The S, for example, the scales at a scant 124 kilograms.

models have a range of 80 kilometres — depending on how the ridden, and the battery pack can be in about four hours, via an plug-in cord located on the of the bike. It will accept 110 or 220 volts, Bieda says.

In operation, the Zero is almost silent. There appears to be tire noise and a slight from the motor, but the abrasive note and engine growl usually accompanies these of motorcycles is completely absent, and look in vain for an exhaust

This may or may not be a good thing. For a lot of aficionados, it’s as much mechanical presence as it is about from A to B on two wheels. Some have engines and drivetrains are almost works of art — of the old Vincents or some Ducatis, for — and most riders are motorheads; they can wax rhapsodic things like transmission camshaft duration, valve ignition timing, exhaust and anything else that into the construction of a motorcycle.

Some will even that bikes have souls.

But the Zero has, almost zero in the way of mechanical and pieces. Where the engine be is a slab of plastic, and the Zero is much an appliance on two wheels.

On the hand, because of its electrical it gives almost instant without the spooling up and revving with an internal combustion and drivetrain. Get on board, twist the and you’re away.

For a little at any rate; 80 clicks can go by pretty on a bike and, at this the Zero seems to be destined for urban duty, although are off-road models. Thus, the 100 speed limit governor.

Most of all, of course, entirely non-polluting and almost to run. Stephen Bieda that you can operate his company’s for as little as a cent a kilometre.

it hits dealers showrooms, the first week of May, the Zero will range in from $8,695 for the X dirt up to $11,495 for the Dual Sport. will also be various including Corbin seats, an lighting kit, a lowering for the back suspension, aluminum body fairing and so on.

Is the biker ready for the Zero? Stephen thinks so. I see this company becoming one of the great names in in the future.
