Zero Motorcycles Launches All-New Electric Police Motorcycle
Zero Motorcycles has launched a new version of the 2012 Zero DS developed specifically for police and security agencies. The Zero DS Police Motorcycle was developed to address the increasing interest from law enforcement and police departments on a global level. For the past two years police, security and military agencies have been testing Zero’s product line in the field.
“We are honored to have the support of so many different police and law enforcement agencies,” said Mark Cummings, Manager of Fleet Sales, Zero Motorcycles. “During the process of building out the 2012 Zero DS Police Motorcycle, we worked closely with police officers and suppliers to ensure that our final product met the demands of enforcement agencies. Police officers put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve, so our goal was to give them all the tools necessary to allow them to be successful.”
Zero, the global leader in the electric motorcycle industry, has worked with the Santa Cruz Police Department, Scotts Valley Police Department, Sebastopol Police Department and the largest law enforcement agency in London, England— the London Metropolitan Police, to allow for thorough field testing and review.
The Zero DS is available in 6 or 9 kWh configurations, the range of the motorcycle is measured by the EPA UDDS at 70 or 112 miles on a single charge, respectively. It offers a top speed of 80 mph. With instant torque, no shifting, no noise, no exhaust, minimal heat production and a low weight, the Zero DS Police Motorcycle allows enforcement agencies to patrol in areas that would otherwise be impractical or impossible using an internal combustion motorcycle.
