The global leader of electric motorcycles, Zero Motorcycles launched its all-new 2013 Zero Police and Security line-up. The motorcycles have been specially designed for law enforcement and security agencies. It was in 2012, Zero motorcycles firstly introduced machines for law enforcement and security agencies. After launching the only law enforcement two wheeler, the DS Police, the market witnessed a huge revolution last year. The company got several mass bookings from different agencies across the world. Followed by that big success of the DS Police, the electric motor-machine giant planned to roll out a companion. That resulted the launch of both Zero S Police/Security and Zero DS Police/Security.
Zero S comes with a Z-Force™ 75-7 passively air-cooled, high efficiency, radial flux permanent magnet, brushless motor, which is capable to produce a maximum power of 54 hp (40 kW) @ 4,300 RPM and a maximum torque of 68 ft-lb (92 Nm). Its motor is mated with Clutchless direct drive. The top speed of the bike is unbelievable 153 kmph. Within a single fully-charged cell, the bike takes you up to 220 km.
To ensure an impressive drive, it is wedded with 38mm inverted, aluminum slider forks with adjustable compression and rebound damping front suspension and Piggy-back reservoir shock with adjustable spring preload, compression and rebound damping rear suspension. To give a sudden reaction to braking, Zero has provided disc brakes at both ends. The front portion is assisted with a Nissin 2 piston hydraulic, 313x4 mm floating disc brake, while the rear portion gets Nissin 1 piston hydraulic, 221x4.5 mm disc brake. The bike weighs 161 kg. The mileage of the Zero S is 100 kmpl.
Meanwhile, the Zero DS gets the same Z-Force™ 75-7 passively air-cooled, high efficiency, radial flux permanent magnet, brushless motor used in the Zero S. The DS holds the same technical specifications of the S.
"After seeing the success the 2012 model had in the field, we decided to expand our 2013 police and security offerings. To have the support of so many different law enforcement agencies and security organizations is an incredible honor. As we stated last year, police officers put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve, so it,s imperative that we give them all the tools necessary to allow them to be successful. The 2013 Police and Security line-up does that exceptionally well," said John Lloyd, Vice President of Global Sales of Zero Motorcycles.
Both motor-machines arrive with new bodywork styling, on-board storage, Nissin brakes, mobile device integration, new two-up seat, refined frame and passenger pegs, and improved off-road handle bar.
